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.

Had another extraordinary lunch. I had a special of rabbit with gnocchi and mushroom in a red wine reduction. I was told this was Adelmo’s mother’s recipe and it was superb.

We live out of state and come to Dallas 3-4 times a year. We found Adelmo’s by accident about 3 years ago. We have made it a routine stop for dinner every time we come to town.

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.

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.

It’s time for the bugler to blow Taps for this faded star. There was nothing noteworthy about any aspect of our dinners...except for uniformly poor execution. Seriously poor.

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!!).
