As usual, the food and service were great! It's one of the few placed in DFW you can get real Italian meals.

We love your restaurant and your food and service are great and very customer service focused. It is a little too noisy at times but if you can get a corner table that helps a lot. Thank you Calabrese for all that you are and do!

Took my good friend out to dinner for her birthday, so we both tried something new and went with Italian for that experience. The restaurant is beautiful, we sat upstairs in a booth table that was set up like lounge couches with pillows. Our waiter Jonathan was really helpful with explaining the menu and providing recommendations. We ordered calamari as our appetizer which was super fresh and cooked perfectly. I couldn’t pronounce half of the dishes on the menu so I will just explain the descriptions. My friend has the shrimp & arugula pasta, and I had the Mediterranean Sea Bass with crab meat & sautéed spinach with a side of truffle mashed potatoes For dessert we tried the almond cake. To speak to my dishes, the sea bass was soo flavorful and seasoned to perfection, I don’t know how I feel about truffle oil, the mashed potatoes were good, but I don’t think I’m a super fan of truffle. The almond cake was amazing also. My friend stated that the seafood pasta lacked the flavor pop she got from my dish, and if she had salt to utilize(none are provided on the tables) she believes her dish would have tasted a little better.

I would def love to visit again and try other dishes on the menu. Great place for a private birthday, date night, or girls night out. They also have an extensive wine list and the bar makes great cocktails as well. We really enjoyed our experience, and can’t wait to visit again with my husband for a date night dinner.

Our first time dining at Calabrese. I chose it based on the positive reviews. They were not wrong! We had an outstanding meal, impeccable service in a great environment. We were very impressed. We will be back to try some other menu items that sounded equally delicious.

Calabrese has become our go to for a nice relaxing dinner. They are as consistent and reliably good as any we've ever frequented. Food is always good, staff knows you if you partake semi-regularly, and ambiance is worth just a little extra. Barkeeps know their mixology and staff doesn't turn like so many other venues. We take new friends and family to Calabrese because we know we can count on them to deliver a great experience every time!

Our date night at Calabrese was lovely, I got the Pizza Vegeteriana and my husband got the Branzino con
Spinaci e Granchio. Both were delicious! For desert we had the almond pear cake. It was amazing too, especially the ice cream! We would love to come back again for another great date night.

Love coming here on date night. Had the Chilean Sea Bass and the wife had the Halibut special. Hers was absolutely fantastic. Mine was really good as well. We've never had anything we didn't like. Plus the staff is super friendly which makes the experience even better. We will keep coming back!!

We sat at the bar and had a drink. The staff was friendly and the music was good Diner was delicious!!! Eric was our server and he was so helpful. I have a food allergy and he was very attentive and answered my questions. The sommelier helped us find the perfect wine and it was delicious. We started our meal with the crab cakes and for dinner we had the chicken parmesan and the gnocchi with sausage. As always, the meal was so flavorful. The general manager was available and came by our table to ask us how the meal was. I love that the pasta is made in house. You can taste the effort in the food and it is obvious that it is prepared from scratch. We will definitely return. Also, it was our anniversary and Calabrese made it so special!

Service was off took 15 minutes to get a server to see us at our table. Food was bland. Sauces for calamari had little spice and flavor was mild. Canneloni was very bland.

Very disappointing. Was seated for our reservation very late. The bartender was our server so almost non existent. Ordered a cooked appetizer and it was served 1 minute later. Could not have been cooked for us. At these prices, they need to work on the dining experience.

Food was excellent. We were initially seated inside, but the noise level was going to be a problem. At our table for two, we were seated right next to another couple. The table was also very long, giving the feeling of being far apart from each other. I asked to move outside, as the weather was nice, and the hostess gladly accommodated us. The patio was very quiet and peaceful. Food was excellent and we will definitely return.

Went to celebrate a special evening. Service and food were fantastic but the table layout and noise level were ridiculous. Neighboring table was within a foot of ours and the noise level was so high we could barely hear each other during a conversation. A little disappointed as I thought it would be a little more romantic.
