    About Adesso

    062AddessoDay2WEBsmall

    A Ligurian-concept restaurant owned by Carol Gadsby and Luciano Loi, Adesso Bistro is now open in its new space at 1906 Haro Street. Formerly located in Kitsilano, the restaurant relocated to Vancouver’s vibrant and scenic West End neighbourhood in May 2010.

    An intimate 60-seat garden-level space, ideally located near Stanley Park, the restaurant is the perfect neighbourhood enclave for entertaining friends and family. When the sun shines, Adesso’s 40-seat outdoor patio offers an unbeatable al fresco dining experience with a unique urban view amid lush plants and abundant floral displays.

    The Italian word adesso means now. At Adesso, ‘now’ refers to modernity and freshness in the impassioned culinary approach and careful hand-picked ingredients. The ‘now’ sentiment echoes throughout Adesso’s menu and interior design. Guests can experience the ever fresh, contemporary take on traditional dishes with Italy’s Liguria region as inspiration. This region is often lauded for its pesto, focaccia, and delicious seafood fare.

    Executive Chef Sean Sylvestre, has crafted a menu with a variety of small plates and multiple courses, designed to provide guests with an authentic Italian experience. Antipasti choices include Bison Carpaccio with beet vinaigrette, Oysters in a red wine mignonette, and thin-crust Pizzas. Inaugural entrée dishes showcase an enticing array from land and sea, such as Braised Berkshire Pork Short Ribs alla Genovese, Pacific Halibut all’ Acqua Pazza, and dry-aged Pemberton Meadows Strip Loin. Hearty pasta selections include Linguine alle Vongole and Risotto al Radicchio e Gorgonzola.

    Pastry Chef Jason Pitschke presents a dessert menu of decadence. Treats include Milk Chocolate and Ricotta Canoli Crumble and Fragola with Macerated Strawberry.

    Adesso’s wine program plays a large role in the guest experience. The wine list focuses primarily on Italian offerings, however, well-chosen bottles from around the world and gems from local wineries are also available – including by the half bottle and glass.

    Open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, Adesso guests savour Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs, House-Made Granola with creamy yogurt, or Poached Eggs atop Focaccia paired with Mimosas, Bellinis and Champagne cocktails.
