The food is simply wonderful! Welcoming staff who always treat you like family. Local crowd that comes back repeatedly. Pasta's and chicken dishes are especially tantalizing. Spinach salad and pizzas are simply delicious. The minestrone soup is filled with fresh vegetables and is one of our favorites. Never get tired of this little gem.

Don't be put off by the word "deli" at Aldo's. This little cafe serves up great Italian food in an intimate, romantic setting. The tables have tablecloths, the service is friendly, helpful and accommodating, and the food is outstanding. This is a little gem in Los Gatos.

Very nice Italian restaurant with delicious food, good choices and attentive staff. Very comfortable and intimate setting to have a nice meal. Prefer this much more than the main restaurant on Winchester.

This is a small cafe restaurant next to Starbucks, across the street from Walgreens, not on the main drag where most of the Los Gatos restaurants are located. It is real classic Italian food, plenty of it, low price especially for Los Gatos, wine drinkable as food is the main item here. Have lunch with one of my best friends... More

The Deli name is very misleading. This is a sit down restaurant with linen tablecloths. Although not as elegant and large as it's parent, Aldo's Restaurant in Vasona Station, it is nevertheless in the top 90% of Los Gatos restaurants. The Veal Marsala, my favorite dish at the parent restaurant, was almost as good but a little to sweet for... More

With its great graphic lettering high on the walls, white table cloths, tasty menu choices at affordable prices, this place delivers. The food is beautifully prepared without the big heavy calorie laden sauces that Olive Garden patrons might associate with Italian food. My choice is frequently a lovely soup and salad or the egg plant dish. It is a favorite... More

This is really not a deli by any means. It is a full service restaurant. I don't know why they don't change the name. We dine there at least once a week and take out another night. Our favorites are chicken picatta, lasagna, chicken parm, and mozzarella caprese. Sometimes they have a meatball special that is delicious and also the... More

One of the most authentically Italian restaurants in Silicon Valley, Aldo's is unpretentious and offers great food with quick, friendly service. Unlike most of Los Gatos, parking is a breeze here and at the other Aldo's location too.
