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.
