Just had dinner at this exceptional Italian restaurant celebrating a friend's birthday. Adelmos is exceptional in every way - food, ambiance and service We have had Fernando as our server many times and he is always the same- excellent! The ambiance is such that one feels to be in NYC or some wonderful Italian village or city. Thanks Adelmos for... More

This is not the newfangled corporate model. We just happened upon the restaurant when we were looking for somewhere to eat lunch. We strolled into a tiny but lovely and intimate dining room. Not being too hungry, we ordered a tomato and mozzarella appetizer with fish soup. Let me just say that we ate ever bite! The mozzarella was freshly... More

My wife and I have eaten at Adelmo's for the last 3 years as an anniversary evening. This particular evening was simply made quite memorable by the wonderful service and food. Adelmo's is a small restaurant and lends itself to enjoy a good conservation without shouting. Our table service was most professional and attentive. Our server was the owner's daughter.........

Since moving from Chicago we have been on a search for good Italian food in Dallas. Adelmo's is an absolutely excellent higher end ristorante. This is my second visit and on the first the service was not so great but this time service matched the excellent food and quaint atmosphere. Our group has the oso buco, lobster ravioli, a pasta...

We enjoyed a lovely late dinner on a Friday night. Enjoyed a fantastic meal and the server was attentive while not intrusive. Will definitely be back to this hidden gem.

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

My wife and I went to Adelmo's this evening for Valentines Day. We visited Italy on our honeymoon this past summer so I thought a quaint, authentic Italian restaurant would be the right choice. Adelmo's was the perfect choice. Fantastic wine selection, especially if you like Italian reds, as well as a delicious selection of appetizer and primi courses. Handmade... 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
