Food was authentic Italian...try the fried mushroom appetizer. However, the service was terrible and the valet parking was a disaster.

Adolfo's hasn't changed the décor in a very long time. The noise level was very high and hard to hear other people within our party. There were a couple of very loud groups and there is nothing to absorb noise. The waitress was dressed in a dark hoodie, not what I would expect any staff to be wearing and she wasn't attentive. She was nice but hardly came to the table. Some of us had empty water glasses - some were filled and some were not, we were not asked if we wanted more drinks, but once, unless we "caught her running by" and asked for them. One person asked for a second drink and never received it. Bathroom had a couple of paper towel holders that were empty but did have a functioning hand dryer. Aesthetically, the place could use a facelift from the front entrance into the rest rooms. Loved the pictures and write ups of Al and the family in the back area.

A little pricey, but great, authentic Italian food. Don’t love TVs in the dining room and the music was a bit overpowering, but otherwise the ambiance was nice.

We Ame here for Thanksgiving dinner. They had a limited menu that included a turkey dinner but we opted for Italian. We started with an antipasto that was awesome. The shrimp and scallops over fettuccine was very good, as was the seafood bake. The service started off a little slow, but got much better.

Went here on my Bachelor party. Everything was good. Nothing was over the top. The highlight of the night was a round of limoncelo that the bar tender sent our way. Myself and a few others got seafood type dishes and we found the seafood not to taste fresh. If I came back here I would not get any seafood.

Food and service were very good, however, restaurant is just too dark in the dining room. The party dining next to us commented on this as well. We (and several other diners of all ages) needed to use the light from our cell phones in order to read the menus and our checks. Please consider adding more lighting in the dining area or on the tables.

Food was excellent, but our service was very poor. Very disappointing, as we were there for a special occasion. Waited FOREVER for everything. Ordered cappuccino after the meal. It obviously sat in the kitchen for quite some time before being brought to me. The foamed milk was flat and the beverage was cold. Wanted to refuse it and send it back, but never saw the waitress. The whole experience was disappointing.

It was fine. First batch of calamari came out very overdone, but after some confusion on the side of the waiter, we were able to get a different order of calamari (even though we were fine with the first’s flavor). We were still charged for the first order though, probably because it was more expensive. The seafood in the entrees was cooked inconsistently, some pieces really well and others were over cooked. Would recommend asking for fish to be cooked less than usual.

We didn't get to order food or eat here. We had reservations and arrived 10 minutes early. Waited for a hostess to show up for almost 10 minutes and then waited to be seated another 30 minutes. This was after us questioning her what was taking so long a couple times. The hostess appeared to be very lost and unorganized. Once we were finally seated, we waited another 15 minutes for a waiter or waitress to come. We gave up waiting and left to another restaurant at this point. This was the worst service we had ever seen and would not recommend the restaurant.

We had reservations for 5:45 last night. We sat on the patio and it took us an hour and a half to see any food. There were only two servers working on the patio. We had to hunt our server down to get bread. We had to wolf our food down. Food was good but they definitely need to staff more servers on a Saturday night when there is a lot of activity downtown.

The best restaurant in Springfield, the best Italian food, the best gluten free options. Wonderful staff, wine menu and so many food choices! No where else can you get gluten free fried calamari - you cannot tell the difference. They also make gluten free parmesan dishes and more! The Chicken Franchese is amazing!

Food delicious
Our waiter Tyler was wonderful
The music is this restaurant is much too loud coupled with 2 large noisy parties it was not a relaxing experience
It’s too bad a room is not available for large parties (small restaurant that places large group on long table in center isle)
Not a good choice for my family member who is hearing impaired

Why do restaurants have music that is So Loud that normal conversation is impossible ???

Wife had chicken Marsala and risotto. Risotto was very dry like it had been sitting for a while. The Marsala was a beef broth not Marsala wine.

I had chicken parm with pasta, chicken parm like any other chicken parm which was ok, the pasta was over cooked and they used pizza sauce for the topping not the same as regular tomato sauce.

We had been to Adolfo's once previously, sat at the bar and liked it. Bartender very friendly. This time was a little different. Service not quite as good. Three of us got dirty martinis and we couldn't drink them. Tasted like the olives and juice were bad. They took them back and comped them though. Overall it was all okay - nothing special - might go back. Always give places 3 chances.

We have dinner here often before attending the Symphony. Food is always delicious and service is excellent. Dining room is very dimly lit, however, and can be difficult to read the menu. They used to have lighted menus, but not any longer. A small lamp or candle lantern on the table would brighten it up a bit.

What a great find!

We came down for a graduation and booked dinner here — how lucky we picked this place. Outstanding food and service. Probably the best chicken parm I have ever had. Desserts are great and service is A+.

Great place and we’ll be back next time we are in the area.
