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.
We had incredible, attentive service. Server also made several recommendations that were spot on.
Amazing food & awesome fancy interior setting
Classic Dallas Italian restaurant that offers superb service, tried and true recipes with great daily specials.
Customer service was impressive the minute we walked in the door. Great wine choices and good food.
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.
The wait staff is always professional and pleasant. The food is wonderful
Service was very slow
Fish was over cooked and mushy
It was great!
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!
Beautiful menu. Loved the Gavi wine and eggplant parmigiana. Grazie Mille.
Great as always. Have eaten there 25-30.yrs. Lovely atmosphere. Top shelf food .
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
Fabulous food! Fabulous service! Can’t wait to go back !
Wonderful. I’d highly recommend
In addition to excellently prepared food and exceptionally attentive service...there is always a warm, warm welcome by the owner.
This is what make a great restaurant and why I keep coming back!
Excellent food and very friendly. Adelmo’s went out of their way to make our first visit a splendid evening. Definitely will return.
Excellent pate, lobster ravioli, rabbit, Pacific sole, tiramisu and cannoli. Next time I would prefer not to have chocolate syrup drizzled on that fantastic cannoli.
We had spectacular service. Came with a big group for restaurant week. Our waiter even worked with the chef to prepare something vegan for someone in our group. Everyone had a great time. The only issue we had was at the bar, but maybe because the bartender was new. They have happy hour until 9 and nice pours on wine.
90 percent of tables empty when we arrived and 75% empty when we left but we were seated at the worst table for four...smack in front of the kitchen door. And we reserved the week before. Had to ask to be moved and were disappointed at the lack of care by the owner. Very disappointed...have been going there for years.
Delicious and authentic Italian food. Great service!
amazing service amazing atmosphere. favourite place in dallas
Amazing service but the food did take a bit of time getting to our table. But they gave us complimentary coffee and a dessert.
This is a family-run restaurant with an excellent choice of dishes, wines and desserts. We had the brisket ravioli for appetizer and the Osso Bucco for the entre'. Both were outstanding.
Our first time and the overall experience was wonderful. Food was great , service was great and we really enjoyed the quiet ambiance! Looking forward to our next visit!
Great food. Great ambiance. Great wine list. Need I say more?
Came out for restaurant week and wasn’t disappointed. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. The hostess which I also thinks is family to the ownership of the restaurant was very kind and approachable. Portion size was perfect, not Texas size portions. The mango moscato was GREAT!
Thank you! Excellent service and good food. I had the new red wine from Due Santi, the University of Dallas own wine, produced on their Rome campus. Adelmo, one of our favorite Dallas’ restaurants.
Restaurant Week afforded us the chance to test our palate. Adelmo's sounded god and was! Busy at 7pm on Saturday, but with reservation we were seated quickly. Get a reservation! Service excellent. Water, wine, condiments and meal served in timely manner with sufficient time between courses (not true in many places). The pate was outstanding and served as an ample amount with great fig perserves and dijon mustard. If you like pate, this is super. Mains served hot and together. Veal parmigiana very good with excellent tortellini. Wife had wonderful salmon with mushrooms, artichoke and tagliatelle in cream sauce. Portions all large. Cannoli for desert was very good; hard to find in Dallas. Someone heard us talking about our anniversery next week. A surprise desert appeared! Will return.
We have been dining with Adelmo and family for years, they never disappoint, the food, service and atmosphere are always FANTASTIC! I would highly recommend Adelmos for friends get together to a date night slam dunk!
From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we thought after seeing the owners, elderly and delightful personalities, that this was going to be a special evening. Alas, the couple in front of us, did not like their table (they had no reservations), so we got stuck with their crowded small table. We had reservations.
I inquired hoping the waitress would be able and suggest an entree. Maybe it was a bad night, but everything went down from there. It was the worst Italian Food in the city of Dallas. My wife, who wanted Octopus, ordered that dish on pasta. She specifically requested no clams. When her plate arrived, clams were mixed in the dish, and the presentation was horrid. There was a non breaded octopus piece on top and other stray octopus pieces around the plate. The waitress when she realized the error offered to send it back and fix it. My wife, not wanting to cause a scene just said she would make do, until the first bite was spit from her mouth. It tasted like the plastic part of an octopus leg and certainly lived up to it's appearance. Ten minutes later, we asked for the bill, kindly taking most of the food home. Before we arrived where we parked, we left the balance of the food in the trash for a homeless person to have a royal feast. Awful Experience. Not even 1/2 of a star. JB
Great wine by the glass. Beautiful setting. Very friendly and helpful staff. Creme brulee was especially delicious!
The service was slow. We sat down at 7:30 P.M. They did not bring the dessert out until 9:30 P.M. We have to ask several time to have our water refill. There were six of us. We all agreed that the food was not very good: the appetizers were missed and hit - the bisque was good, the calamari was not so good, the terrine de pate was decent , the crab cake was good. The entrees (fish, veal parmigiana , Veal chop) were bland and cold.
Interesting diverse food selections (ex. black spaghetti, rabbit, octopus, veal) in a very noisy but attractive setting, with hustling waitstaff
Food was awesome! Service by our waiter Jonathan was outstanding. Best Italian food I’ve had in Dallas and as a former NYer, I am very fussy about Italian! I’ll be back!!
We really wanted to love this place. For this price range, there are too many options to select from that are well worth the $$
Waited after seated 90mins before entree came out. Device was poor. Don’t know why so slow ie kitchen, waitress etc but diminished the entire experience. Good was really great especially veal chop.
Lobster Ravioli was cold. Food was not that great for the price.
Adelmo's Ristorante is a neighborhood gem!! It has to rate as one of the ten best Italian restaurants in Dallas. Try the Veal Parmigiana with Tortellini Marinara and Tim's Chicken Milanese, both delicious! The Cappuccino Pie is an excellent dessert. Adelmo stopped by our table and we had a nice chat!!
