Excellent Italian food and parking too.

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.

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.

By the way there are two Restaurants with the Name Aldos, both belonging to the same owner. If you have a chance to meet him it will be more in the one at the Winchester Blvd. The Food is above average and the Steak was perfect and affordable.

Aldo's was suggested by a gentleman I was meeting for a business lunch. I expected a charming, heart-of-Los Gatos experience, what I got was directions to a strip mall and one of the best meals I've ever had. White tablecloths, perfect place settings, just enough noise to make it fun but still conduct our meeting, more than enough courtesy and... More

The Insalada del Casa was excellent. The Veal Piccata was excellent. The service was excellent. The bottom line: Excellent.

Aldo's Deli isn't a deli in the sense of what you'd think a deli would be; it's more a small bistro. I've only done "take-out" on the dinners, which are excellent. We have been in for just desserts and sitting at the counter/bar. They do have a good wine selection also. There is no outside seating.
