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.

Waiter spilled mussel liquid on me and all over table. They should have moved us to another table but just put napkins on top of smelly tablecloth

Also one person’s entree was cold. Were very nice about taking back to warm up. Returned her entree after we had finished our dinner. Nearly 25 minutes later

Not many people in attendance so that was not the problem.

Restaurant week menu was wonderful - we had the Risotto and Shrimp and the Lobster Ravioli with Scallops. Both were superb. Desserts, too, were great. Appetizers were good, but much surpassed by the rest of the meal.

It was okay. I wouldn’t spend the money again for that experience. I’ve had a lot of nice experiences and great food. This was just okay. They have a lot of wonderful reviews. Maybe just an off night.

Restaurant week allowed us to explore and get out of our usual places and wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find excellent wine and lobster ravioli that we will have to come back for. It was a little too loud the night we went there were some large groups there, but overall a very nice place to enjoy some authentic Italian food. I will recommend this place to others. I've eaten many meals in Italy that were no where near as good.

The lobster bisque was rich and luscious with a large piece of lobster. Definite winner. The sole was bland and the sauce disappointed. Desert was adequate. Wines by the glass very limited. Service was good.

This was our first visit to Adelmo’s since their move to Inwood Village. We live in Tulsa but visit Dallas every few months. We were blown away by the incredibly delicious food! Wow! The new venue is beautiful and our waitress was very gracious. However, the Lobster Ravioli and the Eggplant Parmesan were the stars of the night. I’m not sure I’ve ever tasted better. My husband was also a big fan of the Lobster Bisque. I’m already checking my calendar to make another reservation. I can’t wait to go back! Very well done, Adelmo!

We got together with friends at Adelmo’s recently, and had an outstanding time. The restaurant was quiet, so we could hear ourselves. Adelmo visited with us briefly and brought some extra gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce so all could try. The wine choice was good. The pork chop outstanding. No dessert - we were too satisfied.

A friend and I met at Adelmo's for dinner on a Wednesday evening. Everything about the evening was extremely pleasant from being greeted at the door by Adelmo himself, to the ambiance, the attentive but unobtrusive service to the (recorded) piano music playing in the background.

Everything we ordered was prepared to perfection. The Fritto Misto platter of calamari, octopus, shrimp and white fish was crisply fried, with no trace of oil, and served with aioli and marinara sauces. My Caesar salad was lemony and cold with shredded Parmesan, and the Petrale sole I ordered was an ample-sized filet sauteed in a lemon butter sauce with capers. Both were perfect! My friend had the appetizer of sauteed scallops for her entree and was as pleased with it and her house salad as I was with my meal.

The food was not good on either myself or my partners' meal. Very disappointing. Tables too close to each other so very loud. Waiter's accent was challenging and he was rushing us to order but slow to give attention after that occurred. He pushed to order the prime rib which was nothing but a grilled steak. Very bad! Will not ever go back. Such a waste of $. Lasagna was pitiful. Ugh.

One person in our party had a birthday that day, but it was never acknowledged by the waiter even though we mentioned it when booking the reservation. A few things were outstanding, however, some things just seemed average. Also, we all felt the prices were too high once we learned the price for each item when we got the check. All of us said we probably would not be back again.

This family-owned restaurant relocated to Inwood Village and is picking up a nice cross-section of clientele compared to those from the old location.
The service by Jeffrey both times I have been here in the last two months has been exceptional along with the perfect table as requested. Attention from both Adwlmo and his daughter Lauren are meeting new faces and expanding their fan base. Our food was outstanding, cocktails and wine were timely and just as ordered. Portions are large but save room for the bread pudding.

First time at this restaurant. The food was very good and the portions were on the larger size. Our only issue was that we felt rushed to order even though the restaurant was not very full when we arrived.

Worth another visit hoping the feeling of being rushed was a one time event.
