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.

The food was excellent as usually and our waiter John was very engaging. His timing was excellent from the pre-dinner cocktails, to the meal, etc. Not sure why its been so long since we had been there but intent to return sooner than later.

Went here for an early dinner with friends. The atmosphere feels very authentic and quant, very much how you want an italian restaurant to feel. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the food was very good as well. Really enjoyed eating here.

What a great find that apparently has been around for a while. We were looking for authentic Italian and found it at Adelmo's. Great food and service! It has a lovely atmosphere and you can tell that it is family owned by the way you're treated. I would highly recommend!!!

Have missed Adelmos for the past year and a half! The Lobster Bisque was absolutely fabulous! It was creamy, chocked full of lobster and perfectly seasoned! The Italian bread here is fresh and the perfect balance of firm, but light in texture. My Pacific sole was so perfectly seasoned and loaded with capers. And the bread pudding with its rich sauce and ice cream were the perfect finish! Highly recommend!

Friday night friend’s get together at Adelmo’s was so much fun. Beautiful, casual atmosphere with excellent service, delicious Italian home-cooked dishes at a reasonable price is a hit! We enjoy this place so much. Chris (our server) is fantastic! He is so on-top of the whole experience. Adelmo welcomed us and entertained us with fun banter. An all-together great experience. We will be back. Thank you, Adelmo’s.

The food was outstanding. I don't generally like marinara sauce, but I thought that on my husband's plate was excellent. The servers were very friendly and attentive - our glasses, both wine and water, never got low (at least until we finished the bottle).

Very loud table next to ours in a room w wood floors ruined ambiance for us. Too, they were short on help in the kitchen, so food was extremely slow coming out (e.g., garlic bread came to table after we had finished our meal and the table was cleared.). Food tasted good, however.

The waiter was awesome the ambience was nice except for at one point my wife was cold we were sitting under a vent and noticed there were sitting outside we were waiting on our main course but she asked the waiter was it possible if we could move outside because she was cold. He said he would ask the manager. The manager came over with a tablecloth and put it over my wife like a shaw and said you don’t want to sit outside it’s too humid. Well not exactly what we were expecting kind of weird but we were going to live with that. At that point the waiter came over and said that they would put us outside and that was fine. As he was moving us outside and we were walking through to go my wife and I heard the manager literally cussing at the man and dropping the F bomb in front of us several times calling him names. That is not how you treat your staff. It was the 35th anniversary of the day we met and was a very special night for us. I want to thank the waiter for going out of his way to make our night special. The manager needs to learn from his staff not cuss them. So inappropriate. The waiter sat us at a small quaint table and the manager even acted like he was doing wrong because he didn’t sit us at a big huge table please don’t cuss him for sending us out there then act like you’re concerned of where he sat us. Our little table was perfect while we were inside I was watching our waiter with the other guests he is very good and did not deserve to be treated that way.

Great place, I took my mom there for mother’s day. The outside is nice for you to take pictures and the inside has a homie, welcoming feel to it. Almost as if I were in my dining room. The server was great and made several recommendations and modified the dishes according to our liking. The prosciutto, tomato bisque, Tim’s Chicken Milanese, Shrimp Capellini and Seafood were all delicious.
