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.

Loved our "grownup" dining experience, as always. The much appreciated BACKGROUND music is just that, so that our party always has a good visit. The menu, though a bit briefer due to short staffing, had all our favorites and the several specials were excellent. The service was stellar, with our waiter and assistant is good spirits and professional, as always. We love this white table-clothed, European, well run restaurant.

Everything about this place was wonderful. Had the tortellini and it was so flavorful! Crime brûlée for desert was just perfect. Staff was attentive and ambiance was perfect for me. Not too loud. Perfect place for a date or other dinner where you actually want to converse with one another. Definitely will go back. 5?stars all the way.

So I needed some good pasta before my half marathon and it was so good that my husband got a dish then got my shrimp pasta dish to go and ate it when we got home from the hotel. And he’s not even really into past like then. I also got this sauté calamari and shrimp. I love seafood! And it was phenomenal. Wow. Great stuff

The service was horrible. We had plans that required us to leave 1.5 hrs after our reservation. I would think 1.5hrs would be enough for an average meal. It took 20 minutes to get a drink order in, and when the 1.5hrs was up we had just received the salads. We had to just grab the check and take everything to go. Then they acted like it was my fault for not telling them when we had to leave before we sat down. Do not get the tall skinny old guy as your waiter. He is extremely slow.

Very disappointing.

The food is phenomenal and comes out right as you’re ready for your next course. We attribute much of that to Luigi who was very attentive yet out of the way. We’ll definitely be back, and we’re not waiting for a special occasion to do so.

We booked a table on OpenTable and they were ready for us when we arrived. For appetizers, we had the grilled calamari and shrimp, and the crab cake with pesto. Both were outstanding. Our waiter Alfonso was attentive and helpful without ever being intrusive.

The ambience is quiet, homey and elegant.

We love this place and will obviously be back. Well done Adelmo’s!
