The spaghetti-Western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of Western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of modern Italian cuisine at Adesso Bistro on Haro Street.

With a specific focus on the cuisine of northwestern Italy's coastal Liguria region, Adesso Bistro dishes out modern Italian fare in a laid-back, leisurely atmosphere. Peruse the menu and select from a variety of antipasti, salads, pastas, and signature dishes. Venture solo into a plateful of dry-aged Pemberton Meadows strip loin ($23), or conscript a faithful squire to join you in the Heritage Bistecca alla Fiorentina for two, an enormous 32-ounce porterhouse steak joined by cannellini beans and broccollini ($60). To avoid awkward eye contact with the Cyclops at the next table, linger over the long wine list or choose a cocktail to politely sip.

Reviews

Adesso Bistro

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.

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.
