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.

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.

Can't beat Adelmo's. Everything on the menu is fantastic. Refined food that you can tell is made with the utmost of care. Adelmo has been there every time I've been. Can't find a better more accommodating spot.

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.

By far the worst service I have ever experienced. Our waiter was so rude and pretended like we didn’t exist 90% of the time. He was very attentive to his other tables, just not ours. Not to mention that when he did talk to us he pulled his mask off and leaned over the table talking over our food and drinks. When asked a question about the menu he acted as if we were stupid for asking such a question. We had problems with the food and the owner came to speak with us. He was very nice and agreed with us after tasting the food himself that our food was off. I was very appreciative that he took the time to speak with us. He even sent over complementary drinks. It took a long time to get our food. It seemed as if they made my food and forgot about my partners. When we finally received it mine was cold & soggy while theirs was fresh and hot. Things happen and that’s okay. What’s not okay is how rude the waiter was to us. I will not be coming back to this place again because of the server alone.

We had a reservation for 8:30p and arrived at 8:25p and were seated upon arrival. However, we had to wait over 30 minutes until someone spoke to us and it wasn't until we reached out to someone walking by & asked if we could order. A table was seated next to us about 10-15 minutes after we arrived and they were helped almost immediately. The food was good, but not good enough to make up for the fact that we felt unwelcome.

It has potential. Unfortunately, it was just OK.

I will say that the atmosphere was great, the bar being small but still lively. Hopefully, it was a one-off and next time we'll be a better visit.

The food was excellent. The waiter Chris was absolutely perfect.
The owner Adelmo was rude to my wife at the very end. That killed it for us. We had never been before. We liked the food and the waiter. Unfortunately we won’t be back. I’m certain their business is good without us. We will continue to patronize other

This place is so much fun! We got sat at our table as soon as we arrived. Our waiter, Ernesto, was attentive and entertaining. We had appetizers, drinks, entrees, and dessert. Between the 4 of us, we couldn’t find anything to complain about. The sauce was even East Coast Italian approved!

I asked for a dirty martini and was served a lemon drop with blue cheese olives. I asked for angel hair pasta with olive oil and garlic and got ready garlic rather than toasted. The waiter was lively. But the food and drink sub par.
