I went to Urbano with my dad and sister, we didn't have a reservation and we were pretty late in the evening (sorry for being those people)...they were so nice to us! Very accommodating and who doesn't love BYOB! The food was delicious and I will be back!

Mitch the mgr , said to be owner exhibited no appreciation, bum's rush to eat , pay and get out. Had the nerve to come to table while finishing and say we had to leave as needs the table, even though just finishing eating. Cold food, unclean dark bathroom, off the serving area kitchen area no less, very noisy. Even... More

We had the pleasure of dining at Urbano in Dallas last night. I have heard about this restaurant from many of my wine buddies but this was our first time. It won't be our last. First of all this is a small place, so you better have a reservation on the weekend. It is very loud in the restaurant so... More

Good somewhat overpriced food, friendly servers, BUT avoid. Too small, too many tables, bare cement walls, EXTREMELY LOUD, with exposed kitchen. Two of four dinners arrived barely warm. Excuse was only a four burner stove, had to be recooked. Another dinning room two doors down street. Servers constantly delivering food thru eating area to the outside from the only kitchen....

Loved the fact that it is BYOB which really allows you to enjoy a good wine with a wonderful meal and not break the bank. Very good food and very attentive service. Everything we had was delicious and I wanted to try about ten more things on the menu so obviously will be going back. It got very loud. It... More

Urbano has been around Dallas for more than a decade and has moved a couple of times - the menu reliably good with pleasant and unique selections. Their current location is on Fitzhugh east of I-75 a bit off the restaurant map. Locals always know where to fine them, and their following is very strong. Today, several friends and I... More

Looking for the find? The hole in the wall that is a great place? I wanted to get away from the convention scene and eat at a "locals" restaurant... wow, Jackpot!!!! I will always, go back here whenever I am in Dallas. Spectacular dishes in a bustling little locals place, with delightfully high standards. It's the little Italian place you... More

Dropped by one night to see if we could snag a table. They were packed but the owner did his best to get us in. We love Mitch and his staff. The only thing better is the food! Carefully crafted and everything is fresh and just right. Never heavy. Their mussels and tenderloin with that jus is heaven! Our foodie... More

Moved from McKinney Ave to East Dallas and forgot to take their smiles. Great ambience, and you can bring your own wine, $2/person corkage fee. Waitstaff was indifferent. Seemed overwrought even though it wasn't crowded on a Tuesday night. Food presentations looked great. Mussels appetizer and salmon entree were both past their prime, tasting very fishy. Sides were skimpy. Ran... More

We had a family dinner at Urbano last Friday night, and I must say everything was excellent. My wife and I both had scallop dishes, one from the regular menu and one from the specials menu. Both were cooked perfectly, excellent seasoning, and accompanied by delicious risotto. Others in our party had beef filet stuffed with lobster which looked terrific... More
