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.

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 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.

Let me start by saying this is the first time that even after eating an appetizer and main course, we STILL ordered 3 different desserts he’s, everything was that amazing! The eggplant Parma was hearty and delicious and the lobster ravioli was amazing yet light. For dessert- you cannot go wrong with the tiramisu and pistachio gelato soooo yummy!

We enjoyed the food very much, and the service was excellent! Because it was our anniversary, they gave us a complimentary serving of the delicious bread pudding.

Unfortunately, for whatever reason, we did not receive points for our dining experience. The email we received after dining said it was ineligible for points. This was news to us!

We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit. However, regarding your points, you would have to address that question to OpenTable. We do not issue points and we would not have sent you that email.

Foodie Tuscan

This place is a gem. The team has worked together for years. The wine list is highly rated for good reason, and while there are some impressive selections, the less expensive wines are thoughtful and delightful.

The veal Oso buco was perfect. The gnocchi with it was little clouds of fun done by someone who knew their craft.

Creame brûlée was top notch with a glaze thick enough to glaze a church window.

We ordered a starter that didn’t quite suit us and might have been an order misunderstanding. It was swept away, removed from the tab. No discussion about who was at fault, only what might have suited us better.

All of this is what a solid operation looks like

This place deserves to be packed.

This Gem in Dallas!! The food was absolutely exquisite! Lauren was the host and she was so kind! She told us it was her brothers restaurant. We knew this was a family own restaurant because you can feel the love that goes into each person and dish here. I had the lobster ravioli with scallops and shrimp with saffron cream sauce... my mouth is still watering from the complex creamy texture of the sauce. The scallops were cooked to perfection. The first bite into the ravioli, and the delicious, juicy lobster meat compliment the texture of the sauce. It was perfect.

The tables were spaced out and all the staff wore mask. COVID friendly.
I had a lot of fun tonight! I will be back!

Very reasonably priced with appropriate portion sizes. Overall, an outstanding experience. Will definitely return.
