Myself and 2 others had a really enjoyable experience here. Every bit of food we had was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. It took a little while in getting to us but we were not in a rush and didn't mind the wait (which was apologized for by the very charismatic french waiter). Monday had a $5 special on a... More

We had a delicious dinner here for our anniversary. Sat outside on the patio which is tucked away in a lovely green space with warm lighting. The food was well presented and perfectly seasoned. Our waiter was attentive, humorous, and offered good advice about the menu options. We will definitely eat here again.

On a quiet side street in a beautiful neighborhood just a short walk from busy Robson & Denman, is this hidden gem. Eating on the outdoor patio is a special treat. The food is excellent, and the servers are friendly. One caveat, although we had a reservation the host at the door was disorganized and rude.

We ate here 3 times in a row. Lots of home made food. We loved the bread and the Gnocchi, seafood based pasta, and a beef dish. The potions where well sized and tasted absolutely gret.

I had a wonderful meal here with 3 friends - we shared 8 dishes working our way through each category on the menu and it was all delicious. Outstanding dishes were the pizza funghi, duck ragu pasta, cornish game hen, arctic char and the olive oil cake. The house made foccacio was superb and our waiter did a great job... More

Best meal for this trip to Vancouver BC. The service, atmosphere and most of all the food was just great. Not the biggest portions but more than enough. Eating outside was terrific. This place is a must. A neighborhood place just the kind we like. Try it and enjoy it.

I had read an article about hidden patio's in Vancouver and the description of Adesso was very charming. When my friend asked where I would like to go for dinner I remembered the article. I have to say- the article did not do it justice. As soon as you enter the restaurant you are immersed with the atmosphere of elegances.... More

The staff have all been around for years and they give flawless service and helpful recommendations on what to order. They are also alot of fun, they joke with guests and each... More
