Since 1989, anyone craving home-cooked Italian food in Dallas has turned to Adelmo Banchetti.
The face of Adelmo's Ristorante has become a beloved figure in the Dallas dining scene, dishing out classic, authentic meals inspired by his homeland of Florence, Italy.
Together with his wife, Eliza, and son/chef Andrew, Banchetti ran the first iteration of Adelmo's in Uptown for more than 25 years.
They closed that location in 2016 and moved to Inwood Village, which Banchetti calls the "perfect place" to continue the tradition of feeding patrons that feel more like family.
In addition to Italian staples and fresh calamari, seafood, and veal dishes, diners also flock to Adelmo's for its refined atmosphere and award-winning wine list. And if you're lucky, you just might spot Banchetti shaking up an ice-cold martini behind the bar.
The next time a carb craving hits, drop by the restaurant at Lovers Lane and Inwood Road to pay the Banchettis a visit.
