Setting: Inwood Village in Bluff View, Dallas; Decor: interesting and tasteful; Service: good, but not knowledgeable on wines; Wine List: interesting selection that does not follow the standard distributors, but relatively limited; Meal: my wife had Ruby Trout, and I had Arctic Char. Ruby Trout was very good. Arctic Char was served with a piquant sauce and was not as... More

We have been going to Adelmo's for 25+ years. The move to the new location required a period of adjustment, but it is safe to say that they are back and better than before. The new location has all of the charm and none of the issues from the old restaurant. The food was outstanding tonight and it was fun... More

I wish we had half stars. This was 4.5. The service was ourstanding. The food was terrific except for the appetizer. Mussels were a little big and tough. But the lasagna was amazing...rivaled my Moms. The filet of sole special was exceptional. And we can't say kinder things about Adelmo. He is a consummate restaurantuer.

We made reservations at Adelmos and arrived a few minutes early. This is a very small restaurant, so it has a great intimate but homey atmosphere. We were seated at a tiny table right in front of the door, which had a strong, cold breeze every time the door opened. We immediately asked to be moved to another table, and... 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.
