Italian
Hailing from Florence, Italy, Adelmo Banchetti started his career in the food and beverage world at the tender age of 16. His work took him all over the world from ships to hotels, and finally, Dallas, Texas , where he worked at the legendary Fairmont Hotel's Pyramid Room, the Mansion On Turtle Creek, and the Crescent Court Hotel. In 1989, he and his wife Eliza, who hails from the Mediterranean region, opened Adelmo's Ristorante to rave reviews. Their love of family, friends, good food and wines is reflected, to this day, at Adelmo’s. We feature cuisine inspired by the Italian/ Mediterranean region as well as the herbs, spices and grains indigenous to its shores. Made with the freshest ingredients. Now, the tradition continues with their children Andrew and Lauren on board . We continue to be family owned and operated and offer award winning wine selections and personalized service, all in a rare old world setting.

Adelmo and Eliza are the best...and the food and service is always top notch. Would highly recommend for a special occasion or just a nice dining experience with great people.

Lovely neighborhood restaurant with Italian comfort food. Nice wine list, service a bit slow when we were there but food was worth the wait. It was our anniversary and they surprised us with a lovely dessert.

New waiter, I think: very poor service, orders confused and some were wrong. Checks were confused and wrong. I was overcharged and when that was corrected, I was charged gratuity based on higher amount!
Food was very good but overall experience was disappointing because of service and errors.

We are sorry to hear that your experience was less than great. Unfortunately, when split checks are involved, especially on a busy night, and even though not intentional, an error can happen. The matter has been addressed so as to not be repeated.

Recently dined with friends - the food was good, but a bit lacking, and service was off. It was the Saturday after Valentine's Day, so the place was packed, and this may be a factor.

Outstanding food and service. The tables were a little close to each other and it was a little on the noisy side for the romantic Valentine's day dinner we wanted but otherwise a delightful experience

We wanted to try because we had read about their wine selection and we were not disappointed. They have a very extensive list, we loved the wine we picked. Food was great and the service was top notch. I had planned to bring my wife and daughter, my daughter could not make but we took dinner for her from the restaurant and now we are planning to go back with her.

The osso bucci and Pacific sole were very good entree choices. The service was extremely slow. Dinner took 2 hours and 15 minutes. This is a very long time when we didn't have any appetizers and only a glass of wine.

We hadn't been there in a few years. We enjoyed the last time we were there but this times was truly excellent on all counts--other than it's a bit pricey, but not that bad given the quality of everything.

What a wonderful experience!!!
From the minute we walked in the door the enjoyment began.
Mr.Adelmo greeted us with a boisterous welcome and the evening began. His daughter seated us and Jeffrey, our great server, saw to it that the meal was one to remember. Food was delicious, service wonderful and the whole night was super.
Go and enjoy for yourself. We will certainly be back.

Went expecting pre-theaterenu options but they no longer offer this. Still listed on their website and they had it last time we were there.
Had special for the evening, a seafood plate with salmon, shrimp and crab cake. Pertions were good and crab cake was.the star in my eyes. Very expensive and no prices given when ordered.
Great service as always.

We are so sorry that you were misinformed by our new server. We indeed still do offer our pre-curtain menu seven days a week. Our daily specials and prices are posted on the blackboard easel at the entrance. We thank you for alerting us as well as for your visit.

The service was terrible. None of main dishes We’re above average. The ambience was nice however. The best thing we had at the table was the crème brûlée. It took a considerable amount of time for us to get our food, over an hour and a half. The server was easily agitated, and unwilling to be accommodating.

We are sorry to know that you did not enjoy your dinner. In your case, you requested a special pasta with a special sauce, and it was not what you had in mind. All our dishes are made to order, and your dish had to be remade and thus the delay. We are sorry again.

Just be aware that noisy groups can make it hard to hear your guests. Ask to be seated in another room if you notice a large noisy group seated next to you.

Though there were many empty tables in the main dining room, we were seated in a crummy table in the back room with a view into the kitchen.

Great date or celebration destination. We have been enjoying Adelmo’s for over 30 years and continue to be amazed at the way they stay relevant with today’s newer restaurants . Some things never go out of style. Service, food done well and good value. Well done Adelmo’s!

We choose Adelmo’s because the ambience and quietude allows for conversation and a true European dining experience where people can actually speak with one another and dine, enjoying the quality food. It is one of the few restaurants in Dallas where one can savor the meal and enjoy conversation in the company of other diners who demonstrate decorum
