A slightly dark restaurant and the ambience was a bit flat However the food was superb, lots of really interesting dishes and some very good wine This is a high end restaurant and pricey but worth the experience

We ate at Adesso twice on our stay in Valletta and both times our expectations were met and exceeded. The care and attention is exemplary and the food is probably the best in Valletta

Small and cosy place, full of atmosphere. Very good menu, great food, well presentation, medium prices, great staff, very near the center but just out of it. What do want more? Highly recommended.

Dear Pier, Your kind words of our humble establishment gives us joy. Please keep an eye on our social media page cause our new lunch menu will be launched by mid September with great classics with the Adesso twist of course.

Description
Life is short. Time is a precious gift and we should make the best out it. At times, we find ourselves reminiscing about the past, or thinking too much about our future. These both extremes may impede us to live and enjoy today. Our restaurant aims to give our diners the opportunity to stop time for a moment, and enjoy a carefully prepared meal in a serene and elegant ambience. The menu at Adesso is seasonal, and our dishes are made from fresh and high quality ingredients. Our Soul The name of our restaurant (which means "Now") represents the motto to live the moment, or in other words Carpe Diem (definition on hover). To truly enjoy the "Now" we believe time should not be an interference, so to represent this state, we removed the hands from a number of carefully selected clocks. We look forward to seeing you at our restaurant.
