Adesso should be a must visit for any visitor to Vancouver who is staying in the West End (and for all Vancouverites). The location is off the beaten path, its unusual to find restaurants on residential streets in Vancouver. That gives it part of its charm, as does the nicely decorated room and park-side patio. I had the caesar salad and pork loin. Just the right size. Service was knowledgable and attentive, depsite it being a busy night. Parking can be a challenge, park on Denman or the West End Community Centre a couple blocks away.
