I like meat, love it, but also like a balanced meal. The reason to come here is to eat deli meats, which are good, but rest of menu just doesn't inspire.

The rest of menu is also very good....small plates to be shared with friends over wine and good conversation. Place has a great neighborhood vibe with few pretensions.

The salumi and related meat products are top notch. Beautifully crafted, delicious and numerous choices. It's a great place to go to have a drink or two and snack on way above average bar food. For me personally, it isn't a place to "eat dinner" very often. As much as I love it, I just can't eat salami for dinner that often. But, some of their salads are good and you could probably cobble together a meal that isn't too horribly fat intensive if you tried. Of course, every time I go, I want the duck liver mousse which is to die for and I might just do that if I eat too much of it...

Adesso is now doing weekend lunch! They have a limited lunch menu for now but their butcher cut sandwiches are amazing. We asked for some chips and since they didn't have any, our server gave us some olives and cheese instead. Now that's what I call service! I hope they expand their weekend lunch menu some more... But for now, I'm even happy they are open for lunch!
