I used to LOVE this place, now under new ownership and they have a lot to learn. I suspect they lost their original chef. Menu is drastically cut and what few items are left are very hit-and-miss. Wait staff did their best but couldn't keep...More

By accident, we wandered by the Adesso Bistro on Haro Street. In a very quaint Vancouver neighbourhood, close to Stanley Park - this is a real treat. Over 30 years ago it was the original location of Delilah’s - Vancouver’s original Martini Bar and fabulously...More

We had been a fan of the Ligurian bistro since it opened, and loved the menu, the staff, and of course, the patio dining in summer evenings. Unfortunately, Adesso is now a pasta and pizza place, with completely new staff, obliging but not too experienced,...More

If you want to spend $$$, the servers will help you with professionalism. Oh! You need to be Caucasian to be serviced better versus Asian or any other ethnicities. Their serverS' (yes, plural here) attitudes completely changed when they saw my Caucasian husband. If you...More

We were staying at the Sylvia Hotel, and wanted a nice place for dinner, within walking distance of the hotel. Staff at the front desk suggested this place. No view, but good food, and not too far of a walk. It was a Saturday night,...More

Go eat here. Good food, good wine, and warm service. Just what you expect from this hidden gem. Try the panna cotta!

I had a bad experience with one of the servers (who apparently was the owner's brother) he was rude and unapologetic. I've been to this restaurant twice before and absolutely loved the food. Too bad this experience ruined my impression of it. This may be...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along

Why did you change the menu? Less than stellar now. Menu on this site is now very inaccurate.

Yes. The servers (we've always had Gavin) are very attentive to little ones, and we always ordered a small custom pasta with broccolini, parmesan and butter - children are welcome.

Hey, Judef, just wanted to mention there is no garlic and no Parmigiano on that pizza. That is truffle oil. And it is the very best pizza I have ever had... anywhere.
