The boneless braised beef is to die for.

I am a foodie, but choosing from the menu was not trying to decide which items I liked best, but deciding which items were not the most boring. How about Halibut, not sword fish? The meal was just barely ok. The grilled calamari in the salad were chewy little round bits of what should have been larger tender pieces. So disappointing. The service was friendly and adequate, but rated for professionally would only be a 4 out of 10. My friends say the same thing about the restaurant, none of us are anxious to return. I as there for dinner. My friend was there for brunch. His experience was as mediocre as mine. Without the Groupon discount I would have been a bit angry, not just disappointed. Sorry Adesso, you need a new executive chef and a menu redo. I love to eat! But finding interesting items on your menu is almost impossible.

Wonderful place for a night of celebration or romantic evenings. The food and service are excellent too. Warning: Bring your own flashlight to read the small print menu by candle light.

The restaurant did not make it easy to use groupon. I called to make reservation as per instruction on grouping. The person on the phone sounded reluctant to accept the groupon. I was not thrilled with the experience.

Both the gnocchi and the risotto verdi were spectacular! Feels like the home cooked meal that mama made! The staff are family I think, and are incredibly warm and provide excellent service. The patio transports you to somewhere in Europe ... a little gem in the West End.

bad service, not professional. the food keep coming out even we haven't finish the first plate. we went there on tuesday and they are not busy. we have 2 person , the table is so small and the food keep coming. The waitress keep pushing the plate around.The table sized is limited. it can't fit everything on the table. They don't even care. when we ask for butter, the waitress say this is an Italian resturant and the butter is very hard. The waitress attitude makes us feel like "you know nothing about Italian food" and make us feel like we are being humiliated

From Our Editors

With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail. "Adesso" translates to "now" in Italian, symbolizing the culinary artisans' commitment to turning fresh locally sourced and organic ingredients into vibrant plates that carry the flavours of Italy's northwestern coastal region Liguria. Known for its capital city of Genoa, the seafood-loving region is dotted with small towns that produce dynamic takes on Italian staples such as foccaccia, pesto, and calamari. Adesso's owners line its facade with lush vegetation and accent the dining room with dark wood tables and chairs. Servers bring imported and local wines to tables dotting the outdoor patio among neatly trimmed bushes and the sweet sounds of the eatery's three squirrel tenors.
