The food at Adelio's is EXCEPTIONAL. This is GOURMET Italian food. Gourmet means it is prepared from scratch with love and sometimes that takes time. I don't mind the occassional wait because the wait staff is the friendliest and most attentive in Lumberton. They always ...moremake us feel at home, call us by name and attend to our every request every time. It is not uncommon for Adelio himself, or his wife Cristine to come over to the table and visit, making sure we're satisfied and thanking us for coming in. For a starter, I highly recommend the shrimp bruschetta. For entree, I generally prefer to order one of Adelio's unique nightly specials, but I also recommend his veal selections on the menu- particularly the Saltimbucca. It's very difficult to find quality veal dishes like the ones prepared by Adelio in southeastern NC. My wife thinks Adelio's prime rib is the best she's ever had, and orders it every time without fail. Be sure to save room for one of Adelio's delicious desserts that are made fresh daily from scratch and worth the guilt that follows. All food portions are generous and the prices are very fair. I'm of the opinion that the Adelio's restaurant experience is best when you're not in a hurry but rather when you have sufficient time to properly enjoy quality food, drinks and great company. Adelio's is ideal for a special date or dinner with a large group of friends, but our kids actually enjoy dining there as well because of the extra special attention Adelio's staff awards them. I'm not Italian, but Adelio's makes me feel like I am. We always leave with a smile on our face, feeling like we've just had a great meal with the family and looking forward to our next one. Cheers!... or perhaps I should say "Salute! "view less
I LOVE Adelio's! The chicken marsella and chicken/shrimp alfredo is WONDERFUL!!! The service can be slow at times, but it is well worth the wait. Adelio is a household name here in Lumberton. He cooks with love and you can tell it in the food. Food prices are reasonable ...moreand portions are HUGE! Can't get enough!!!view less
Jimmy's is an excellent seafood restaurant! They have the best calabash shrimp, slaw, and hushpuppies in the entire state of NC. Don't be fooled into thinking you have to drive all the way to the coast to get a great calabash meal.
