I owned a successful restaurant in central London for 18 years, so I thoroughly understand the challenges in providing a consistent experience, especially after a customer has become a "regular" who has come to expect a high standard. So I am pretty forgiving of the odd "off night" wherein a new waitperson, or an unplanned short staffing in the kitchen,... More

A fabulous evening! Our waiter Fernando was top notch. A long time neighborhood restaurant. It is such a small quaint spot. Husband had the Fettuccini Romano. Smoked salmon on a bed of homemade linguini tossed with mushrooms and artichokes in a light cream sauce. I chose the italian sausage stuffed mushrooms marinara. YUM! The service was wonderful. Thanks! We will... More

While attending a Dallas trade show, a vendor recommended Adelmo's to us. We enjoyed the atmosphere, food, and service and will return on our next trip to Dallas. As a business traveler, work typically dictates the daily schedule with meals following. Breakfast is hotel fare (continental up to a full breakfast). Lunch ranges from coffee to a sandwich. Dinner, however,... More

We heard it was wonderful, longtime Dallas establishment then finally made it there only to have to ask for a menu after 30 minutes, then wait 3 hours for our meal, then have our meal be bland and quite frankly awful. I have to assume from all the fabulous reviews and things we have heard it was just an "off"... More

After a lifetime in Chicago and Boston and growing up in an Italian family the move to Dallas resulted in the loss of the real Italian culture we have always enjoyed. We are on a mission to find acceptable if not great Italian food and Adelmo's was our first stop. There is much to like about this place and I... More

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate it all. Indeed, Friday and Saturday nights get very busy, and would love for you to return on a weeknight, if that is your preference. We strive to give the freshest quality, fair prices, and generous portions to our customers, but our records show that you and yours decided to split a veal... More

Family owned/operated for more than 3 decades Adelmos offers up northern Italian/Mediterranean dishes both lunch and dinner. Owner Adelmo is usually greeting guests nightly with apron on...son Andrew head chef in tiny kitchen. Usually very enjoyable unless that Italian temper shows it's ugly face.... Which happens from time to time. Closed Sunday

Dallas doesn't have many places that have lasted so long without constant heavy marketing, turnover of chefs, and food trends. Adelmo's is small, the owner is attentive but not intrusive, and we found the Saturday evening menu interesting and well done. Good soup, salads, beef and seafood dishes.

We hadn't been to Adelmo's in years, but the positive reviews on Trip Advisor convinced us that this quiet, good ristorante would be perfect for our twice-yearly adult children dinner. We have been to fancier places, but this time we were looking for less noisy, less crowded dining. I remembered the delicious Osso Buco from our last visit and that... More

My wife and I do live in Dallas, but go there often. We chose Adelmo's because it was a small quit restaurant and Trip Advisor's reviews. The review and our dinner were right on target. What a refreshing restaurant where both the food and service leave nothing but very complimentary experiences. We had a lovely dinner in a quit setting.... More
