Adesso anyone?

Thinking about trying Adesso bistro for a small birthday dinner (4 of us)? Any standouts ? I heard this place has a connection to Papi's in richmond. Went there years ago and really enjoyed it.

    We went to Adesso for the first time last week and it lived up to the reviews. Good fine food for relatively reasonable prices. The only drawback was the awkward service...not the usual smooth delivery we expect from a waiter in this type of restaurant.The stand out for us was the Pizza Tartufo which we had as an ape: white pizza with garlic, onions, black truffle, Parmesan, and potatoes. The potato added a creamy rich texture that you did not suspect. Salivating just thinking about it!

      I went a couple of months ago and it was great. I had the short rib which was outstanding.

        Nice to hear the positive feedback. We went in the summer and it was just okay.
