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.

I am a lifelong resident and recent transplant from NYC to Dallas and have been scouring the city for great Italian food. It has been a running joke with my Dallas friends - “how can it be that there is no great Italian food here.” Other than Lucia, I have been more than disappointed after dining at more than a dozen different Italian restaurants in the city. The cuisine and tastes at Adelmo were more authentic than any other restaurant I have eaten at here and the service was just terrific. My new go to Italian restaurant in the city!

We went on a very quiet Sunday evening. It was lovely. The food was phenomenal and it matched the service. Don't be afraid of the Veal Chop. It was prepared perfectly.

We love Adelmo’s and the good is fabulous. The only exception this time was one ordered the special of the evening: seared tuna which was offered with cannellini beans and mushrooms. The fish was dry and the dish fairly flavorless. All other food that night was great and the service and atmosphere are terrific!

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.
