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.

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.

My first time at Adelmo's, on the advice of my partner, who'd been there before.

Made reservations, arrived and were greeted and promptly seated. Noted an extremely wrinkled tablecloth, commented about it and the host actually said "it costs money to iron those, so the owners don't want to spend it"....despite the fact that no other table had such a wrinkled tablecloth...

Otherwise, the food and wine was outstanding, the service just right, the ambiance was amazingly intimate for a large restaurant (which is divided up into several rooms, so the noise level is reasonably quiet and the feel is an intimate one).

We thought it was a tiny bit expensive for what it offers and particularly noted that when the waiter listed the night's specials, he didn't note anything about the prices...a shortcoming.

Otherwise, we'll go back (hoping for an ironed tablecloth...at this level, this shouldn't even be a mention!!).

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 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.

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.
