We just enjoyed one of the best Sicilian Margherita pizza ' s we have ever tasted! The fresh mozzarella, sweet tomatoes, crisp crust and soft center were extraordinary. The shaved steak and cheese bruchetta special appetizer was quite tasty. Our waitress Jodi was friendly and helped us have a great dining experience.

We stopped in for our anniversary lunch on our way back from New York. Lots of variety on the menu. We had two doggy bags, there was so much food, and really delicious. When we arrived home, my husband realized his camera lens was missing. He phoned the restaurant and they had it. They mailed it to Toronto and it... More

I was following a detour and decided to stop someplace for lunch. Wanted to try something non-chain and pulled into Aiello's. Wasn't sure what to expect when we pulled up but the outside doesn't give the restaurant justice. A portion is like a pizza shop and then there is a more elegant dining room. The building is very old and... More

Aiello's atmosphere is wonderful, and the owners and workers are so pleasant and the food is out of this world. Everyone should eat there!!!!!!! The owner will even sit and talk with you and he and the family are so down to earth and will tell stories and jokes with you. Love going there and feeling at home!!!!!! It is... More

We frequently stop here for lunch on our long drives to and from Philadelphia. The food is always very good, portions large, and service generally very good.Husband had the meatball sub this time (ended up taking half home) and I had the cajun burger. The burger was tasty but not especially cajun in flavour.

I'm from the Westchester, NY area and visit my in-laws in Whitney Point periodically. I find that there are a lot of restaurants that deliver value "upstate" but its very hard to locate restaurants that deliver quality. Charlie and Vinny do an excellent job of bringing great food to Whitney Point. I make it a point to visit Aiellos whenever... More

My boyfriend and I ate there last Saturday. He had broiled fish. I had Chicken Saltambocca. The chiken breast was a little dry, but the toppings were good. The bread was excellent. We sat in the back dining room where the original bar was. The atmosphere was great. Margaret, our waitress, was terrific. She was super attentive and pleasant and... More
