We are so happy that you are still here!!

A fantastic meal! The atmosphere is romantic and quiet so you can talk. We ordered from the price fix menu, but we felt like we were fine dining! The appetizers of calamari and rollatini were delicious as was the salad! The pork osso buco with mushroom risotto was superb! Finish that off with... read more

Went to Aldarios for the dance party. Buffet came as part of the whole thing. First thing. We made reservations for this. The reservations, were for 7pm, we did arrive a little late do to no parking spots in their lot, so we did have to park across the street. No biggie. The girl brings us to our table and... More

Service: -Our main waiter's huffy attitude added a dark tone to an otherwise relaxing and enjoyable family reunion. -The pasta fagiole should have been served as an appetizer, but instead, it was delivered with our meal, almost like an after-thought. We sent it back. And then they charged us for it anyway(!). I had them remove it. Food: -Our bread... More

Hello Lea, Thank you for your review! Things like this are very helpful to us! Just want to clarify a few things: First off, a standard wine pour is 5oz (http://insidescoopsf.sfgate.com/blog/2008/07/15/whats-a-standard-pour/), the glasses we have are actually 18oz glasses and we pour to the 6 1/2oz mark, meaning that we actually give MORE than the standard pour! Most restaurants do... More

Chamber of Commerce get Milford restaurants to participate in offering inclusive 3 course meals for one week at $25. Aldario's had one of the best menu choices. So many offer mostly pasta dishes as main entrée. Here I could choose escargots for appetizer, wonderfully tender ribs with risotto, and cheese cake for dessert. Wine began as $7 extra. Food was...

Two weeks ago, we tried the Tuesday night buffet. While the food was plentiful, it was not hot and rather tasteless. We will not do it again; we will continue to go to the main dining room!

Please know that we make every effort to uphold the same standards and preserve the same quality that we offer in our main dining room, within the dishes we offer during the buffet. We do apologize that it was not to your liking... More

We went for their excellent price fixed lunch. I had a 3 course baked scallop lunch with a glass of wine for $14 - large succulent scallops. You can't beat it. I would love to return for dinner another night. Excellent service and a nice warm & bright decor conducive to conversation. I'll be back!

The best Chicken Parm anywhere. Everything is fresh and authentic Italian. Go for the Tuesday Night Buffet or anytime. Aldario's is also an excellent choice for a Wedding Reception and other banquets.

I'd been to the "famous" Tuesday night buffet once and brought my husband after weeks of telling him how great it was. There was a large party in one room and another party in the bar area. They used this as an excuse for running out of meatballs, calamari, lamb and oh yeah, dessert. The buffet food was lukewarm and... More

Hello Dawn Rose M. We apologize that your recent experience was not a more positive one. As we did have two previously booked parties to entertain that evening, we were preoccupied with having to handle these two events. We did attempt to replenish the buffet as frequently as possible but we do apologize if it was not enough to suit... More
