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.

                                            Would recommend if you’re looking for a good Italian restaurant. Very nice spot, the tiramisu was perfect. The appetizer (burrata) was legit and delicious. Our main dishes were good. Would definitely go back.

                                            Excellent service. I usually have veal or chicken which is excellent. I chose the special which was pork chop with sauce including peppercorn. I did not particularly care for the sauce but pork chop very tender. The sauce a little too strong for my taste. With that said, the salad was good . The dessert crème brûlée was good. It was not under cooked as with other restaurants. My table partners liked the Chicken Milanese. One of my favorite things is that it was not noisy. You can actually have a conversation without yelling. Very good restaurant and will return.

                                            Cute Italian restaurant that is not too stuffy fancy but very enjoyable and really great food and service. My wife and I went there for a date night and had a great time. This place is a great place to come to for a good meal! We will definitely be back soon.

                                            Attentive and knowledgeable service. Food was traditional Italian, not cutting edge. Delicious Osso buco, chicken and flounder.

                                            My husband and I took our elderly moms to Adelmo's for a special celebration, and the experience was superb, from start to finish. What a lovely restaurant it is (and has always been), and how delightfully the staff makes sure its clientele is happy to be there. The food is always outstanding, as well. We will be back again and again.

                                            Adelmo is living on its reputation. In our party was an Italian who grew up in California with a first generation Italian Mama, one person who lived in Italy for 15 years, and two who have been to Italy many many times. Maybe our expectations were set too high. The owner made us a little something made with Gorgonzola and gnocchi, and that was divine, like that served on the slopes in Cortina, The rest of the meal was not fresh and probably left over from the day before and reheated. The Calamari were tough and chewy. The Octopus was flavorless and small amount. The Ossobuco was dry, stringy, and chewy. Don’t even mention the chicken Milanese. The pastas were cold. The ambiance was nice although our waiter couldn’t hide his boredom and didn’t tell us about the specials. The water service was good. We wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Save your money.

                                            We are disturbed to see that you did not enjoy your dinners, and Adelmo recalls chatting with your table and discussing Italy and its ways. Our policy has always been to replace or not charge for meals that are not satisfactory to the guest, but no such indication was made. We pride ourselves in the service and quality that we provide to our guests. Please be assured that it takes more than reputation to stay in business for 33 years, and especially in the Dallas market.

                                            I brought a friend to celebrate her 94th birthday, along with another elderly friend. I requested a chocolate cake for her at the end of the meal, with a candle. Our waitress, Dianna, was just as sweet as she could be. She was very attentive to our needs and made us all comfortable. The food (Pacific Sole) was fabulous! I love coming to Adelmo’s for dinner! Once dinner was done, we got not only a flourless chocolate cake, but bread pudding, too, complete with candles! We had a lovely time and I will come back as often as possible.

                                            I wanted this to very good. I remember the restaurant from years ago over in the Knox-Henderson area. So we tried it again. The place looks good, everyone's attitude is cheery and makes the guest comfortable. The food just isn't there. So sorry to say we won't be back.

                                            The food had no seasoning at all. They seemed to have a shortage of salt and garlic in the kitchen. Very disappointing.

                                            Not all of our dishes call for garlic, and also, it's better for the guest to gauge the need for salt.

                                            We had a fantastic evening at Adelmo’s. They have an interesting wine list by the bottle and glass and the food was outstanding. Our waiter, John, was incredibly helpful and always seemed to be there when we needed something. He provided great recommendations throughout the meal. Looking forward to returning soon to try other things from the menu.

                                            Adelmo's was full and vivacious last night. A wonderful crowd in the restaurant, but not so loud that our table of six could not enjoy conversation. A completely convivial and happy, Italian atmosphere. The food was superb, and Adelmo's personal wine pairings were perfect as usual. Adelmo's remains a Dallas institution. If you've never been, try it and see a great, old family-run Dallas restaurant that continues to set decades-old trends of true Italian hospitality (with Adelmo's own mother's recipes!) for our community.
