A word from Adelino's Old World Kitchen
Adelino's Old World Kitchen was founded on the simple premise of supplying great food, drink, and service in an environment which fosters friendly conversation and interaction.

The menu features recipes from around the Mediterranean and is served either traditional tapas style or your choice of family style.

When young Adelino entered America through Ellis Island he held true to the belief that family comes first and friends are a part of the family.

In Adelino's eyes nothing was better than sharing a meal with friends and family with good home cooking, plenty of Vino to drink and spending all night laughing and conversing.

We invite you into Adelino's kitchen to enjoy those same experiences old world style.We strive to provide the warm heart felt hospitality which truly makes you feel like one of the family.

  • "Adelino's Old World Kitchen is a favorite restaurant of ours. They recently changed their menu so of course we had to go and see what was new! Steve had the boar chops with garlic smashed potatoes and Susan had the Jumbo Shrimp wrapped with bacon also with garlic smash. Both entrees were spectacular. The boar, which we'd never had before, was perfectly cooked, and very flavorful. We got it with the Hunter's sauce. mmmm We'd get it again anytime! The shrimp were grilled on a skewer and cooked perfectly. We also had, as a starter, the GOAT CHEESE CROSTINI tapas plate - so good. Steve had his favorite Warsteiner Dunkle and Susan had the Portuguese Cream. Everything was wonderful, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!"

  • "We visited from out of town. I was looking forward to the restaurant; the menu looked interesting and the atmosphere was nice. Unfortunately, the food was a bit of a disappointment. My wife and I both ordered fish. My trout was okay, but did not taste fresh. My wife had to send her halibut back. It also did not taste fresh. She sent it back and got salmon instead which was pretty good. We had a new waitress who was nice enough, but brought our feed in shifts. I was done eating by the time my wife got her food. I was expecting more considering the price of the entrees. The restaurant has promise but needs more work on service and food freshness."

  • "Love the tapas style or entree choice. Food is excellent. The service is always very good. Adeline's does offer parties and weddings upstairs so sometimes it can get a little loud but not bothersome. Tons of wine to choose from. The bartender was out of blue cheese stuffed olives so he stuffed olives for my husbands martini with goat cheese and it tasted excellent! Thanks bartender! Our server was great, we never had to ask for anything. Thanks server! (I think his name was Matt)."

  • "This is our third time experiencing Adelino's and I couldn't think it was possible to be even better than the last two times but I was wrong. The Prime Rib special was out of this world! Looking forward to the new grill menu coming in April. Our server said The chef is adding almost 40 new items to the menu. Can't wait to come back."

  • "We moved to Lafayette Indiana 2 years ago & have been trying different restaurants. Wish we had gotten to Adelino's sooner! Our server, Matt, was amazing. Even though relatively new to Adelino's, he answered all of our questions & anything he didn't know, he found the answer for quickly. He told us the history of the family as well (very interesting story!!) The menu is extensive covering both tapas and regular entrees. I had the lobster and shrimp fideo - large shrimp cooked perfectly and piping hot. Hubby had the Breast of Duckling cooked in an amazing sauce. Their garlic bread is delicious with hunks of baked garlic throughout. A wonderful experience and a delightful find. We plan to attend the cooking class offered as well :)"

  • "My husband and I drove through pouring snow to arrive a bit late for our reservations. We were shown to a lovely marble table set for numerous couples but we were the only ones there! Our waitress was excellent! Attentive, caring, capable, and on the spot with drink refills, asking if we were ok or if we needed anything, etc. The food was simply outstanding. Chef Rosa! Our highest compliments and thank you so much for the personal delivery of our dishes...steak and "bunny!" Other waiters, etc., made us feel at home and welcome. We even had a dessert, which at first looked too "skimpy" to share, but was in fact so sweet and rich, that the amount was JUST RIGHT! SWEET!"

  • "Our first experience at Adelino's was a wonderful one. The food was fantastic and the service was exceptional. Our waiter and bartender were both extremely helpful. They seemed genuinely excited when discussing the menu and treated us in the friendliest way possible. It felt like we were among friends. The prime rib was excellent with a portion far larger than expected. We had a meat and a veggie rigatoni. Both were hearty portions and delicious. A house sangria was wonderful and potent. A classy restaurant we are sure to return to."

  • "My family was in town so I took them to Adelino's. I go here whenever someone comes in town and gives me an excuse to, and it never disappoints. Everyone loves tapas, but there's also the option to have your own entrees. The waitstaff is always really personable, this is a major bonus this restaurant has over many others in town."

  • "Male wait staff were all wearing hats. Mostly, perhaps all Fedoras. Interesting schtick. We ate before a symphony concert. Our server made certain all or our order could be prepared and served within our time parameters."

  • "We celebrated two thesis defenses on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was hardly packed, so we had the whole place to ourselves and got great service. Our waiter was very good at keeping track of all the tapas and entree orders. Only (minor) complaint was that they ran out 2-3 items on the menu, which was surprising since they were light on customers that evening."

  • "This was our second visit and it was even better than last time which was fantastic! We had several tapas items that were outstanding. Our server was great and very helpful in timing the tapas dishes. Our wine was fantastic, from Spain and 1/2 price on Tuesday's which was even better. We will be back again soon with friends for a party on their "Chef's Table" can't wait."

  • "Adelinos is my new favorite restaurant. It has an extensive menu of interesting foods. We can go often and still not get bored with the food. Excellent food. Attentive waiter. Be sure to try the portobello mushroom."

  • "Our server was very friendly but entirely too chatty for our liking. Occasionally other waiters would drop off a dish and one of them was very brusque. We found some of the tapas portions to be a little small while others were too big. It seemed to me as though they were being careful with the expensive ingredients while free with the less expensive ones. The flan which was served in a small bowl with too much caramel sauce on the top but was delicious and probably the best food we were served. As for ambience, there was a noisy wedding reception going on overhead and that conflicted with the music played in the dining area. Also, the entire restaurant seemed tired and the mauve & green color scheme was dated. Our table was wobbly."
