We ate at Aldario's last Saturday evening and were pleasantly surprised at both the quality and service at this older establishment. Food was fresh, hot, and generous in portions. Our waiter, Tony, was a trip, but being an ex- New Yorker, loved him. There was an engagement party going on next door and I was surprised how uncrowded the rest... More

Our very first visit with friends on a busy Saturday night and was made to feel special by Sante's entire staff, namely Chris and Susan. Leisurely eating experience and delicious food and cocktails. We enjoyed Scallops Sarah, baked stuffed shrimp, house special steak (big), and filet Gorgonzola. Susan suggested the cannoli martini and a spectacular desert of deep fried banana... More

You can always count on a very good meal, service and a calm dinner climate. We have been coming here for 20 years and the food and service have been consistently very good! The owner is often on the premises and checks on his guest.

Our family was blown away by the food, the ambience and the service. Sante (owner) is top notch and very experienced in wedding planning. I think for the money we got an fantastic deal...the food just kept coming. When it was dance time, there wasn't a person sitting at the tables...everyone on the dance floor. Bartender was great. The food... More

We hadent been to Aldarios in a while so we thought we would give it a try. We went for lunch. There was a prix fixe so we opted for it. Service was painfully slow. We waited about 25 minutes between each serving. I think the problem was the dining room was understaffed. We had one waitress to service the... More

I come from a family who grew up in the area and have fond memories of Aldario's from years back. Since I moved to the neighborhood in 2010 myself, I have dined here twice. My first experience was fairly uneventful, the food was good, not great, but there was nothing horribly wrong with any aspect of our visit. My wife... More

They have a great deal for lunch. Go there often. They have a $10 special and the food is great. Went to one buffet and it was so great we went back again with family. Even the crab legs were cracked. The second time the buffet was a disaster, terrible food, poor selection. No more buffets for us. Have attended... More

This is a critique of the buffet only. It was our first time and had hoped it would give me a taste of what to expect in the main restaurant. The buffet was mostly a disaster. They offered about 10–15 hot dishes. None were marked so you did not know what they were serving. There were two dishes with sausages.... More

I was at Aldario's for a soap opera fan event on the evening of August 24th. I had reserved a table for dinner. I was impressed at first by how classy it was, cushions on the seats, the Parisian-style outdoor dining, and the inner decor. I was seated and served with no problem at first, but then the older male... More

As a new resident of Milford, I decided to give Aldario's a try. This visit was terrible. Service was very slow, the waitress messed up the bill and was not friendly to our table. We also saw her give complimentary limoncello to other guests and not to us. Needless to say, she got no tip and I will not come... More
