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 is excellent in this often overlooked restaurant. Sole with lemon caper sauce perfectly cooked, they are famous for the Veal Chop, the salmon was excellent, and the tagliatelle Bolognese was delicious. The ambiance is lovely and one can actually have a conversation without screaming. An excellent wine list tops off the experience.

Although early, we were welcomed and placed at a table to our satisfaction. Our waiter and everyone took very good care of us. Our meals were as expected: beautiful to behold, warm and extremely flavorful. The wine we ordered was a "healthy" pour. (Would have like options for more beers, but the Malbec we tasted was delightful). Thanks to everyone (especially the suggestion for the cappuccino pie!) Next time we are in Dallas, we will return

With a reservation it took us 15 min to get seated yet they had 3 open tables upon arrival.
28 min to take our order once we were seated.
9 min after that we got our drinks
20 min after that we got our appetizer
50 min after that we got our salad
32 min after that we got our entree.

We ordered a drink at the bar while waiting. While the bartender was making the drink we got seated. The bartender said she would bring us the drink. We never received it. Luckily we were not charged for it.

The Fried Calamari on the appetizer was rubbery and squishy. The Marinara sauce was amazing.
The shrimp on Lobster Ravioli entree was hard and overcooked. The Scallops were chewy. The ravioli and cream sauce tasted great.

The plate that the Bolognese came on felt like it would burn your fingers off. Indicating it had been under a heat lamp. The sauce to pasta ratio was wrong. The Bolognese tasted amazing.

We were one of the last tables to leave the restaurant because it took so long. When another table was asked if they wanted dessert we heard them remark "no thank you, we cannot be here all night".

Food and service was very good. The tasty soup of the day (Lobster Bisque) could have been served a bit hotter. The Minestrone soup was served hot and was delicious. I chose Salmon as my entree and it was cooked to perfection. To the staff and management, thank you for a very pleasant dining experience! Will definitely return.

Perfect locale for a Thursday or Friday business lunch. Although there was a party of 18 guests in the main dining area, my older guests and I had no issues hearing each other.
As always, every aspect of the meal was carefully choreographed and attended. One could have measured the perfection of the place settings and the 3 places would not have differed by a millimeter. The timing of the cocktails and courses was not rushed, nor did it lag. Each of us tried a new dish and from the Shrimp Linguine special to Sole to the Lobster Ravioli with Asparagus we were all pleased with everything. The wine glasses were freshened with alacrity and our requests for little things like bread and butter were immediately fulfilled.
Lauren, the up-and-coming, second generation of this establishment has stepped into a larger role and shows great promise in following her father’s esteemed footsteps. With so much wonderful training and pedigree between their waitstaff, the Chef and front of the house here, I am always surprised that I can get a table! The reason is the parking, if not for that - this gem, recently relocated to Inwood Village would be the talk of the town. My suggestion, take an Uber, the dining experience well justifies it!
Usually the bread pudding is my go-to dessert. This visit my guest talked me into the Creme Brûlée, while it was the right portion for one, it was easily was shared by three of us with a side of their amazing truffles. Jani promised us the perfect espresso and he delivered. The whole experience rivaled any of the finest dining in Dallas or Fort Worth.
