My aunt and I were driving back from New Jersey after July 4th and didn't want the usual highway fast food fare. This place surpassed our hopes. The food was outstanding. I had the chicken franchaise and my aunt had the ravioli. She loved it and mine was wonderful. Lucy our server was great. The ambiance is very comfortable. We... More

Kind of a dated place, but go for the pizza! Crust is great--we had one with eggplant parm--so good! A nice change for Arizonans who can't get decent pizza.

I have been here numerous times, for lunch as well as dinner. The service and food was good, I will definitely go back. Pizza for lunch was great, and I love their calamari. Their menu is varied so they always have something I know I'll like. Late nights I've been to the bar, and it's always a friendly atmosphere.

I have been coming here since Aiellos opened. Food is absolutely amazing, the steak and lobster are to die for. I have sinced moved 30 minutes away and will drive to get their pizza and wings before ordering from somewhere else. Where else can you call to order and the owners know your voice? Staff is always friendly and you... More

My friends and I meet at Aiello's every Thursday and have always found the food, service and prices excellent. I would recommend Aiello's to anyone who enjoys lovingly prepared and served Italian food.

Only the food is good here other than that a terrible place to go. The service was terrible and food took forever to come out, and there was only a few other tables in there, but they were already eating. The owner Charlie is obnoxious. He came over to us and all you could smell is alcohol. I'm not exaggerating... More

Reading this review makes me wonder if people know that after 33 successful years I still work between 12-16 hour day's 5 to 6 day's per week and during that time when I think I have everything under control, at that point I might have a couple of beers. If that makes me a bad person I wonder what else... More

Hands down this place ranks as one of the worst restaurants I have ever tried to eat at. We have dined all over the world and this is a frozen food disaster. The waitress was nice. As someone else described we were also made aware of hidden charges. My first clue should have been when we pulled in the parking... More

Terrible! The veal has 3 times the amount of breading and very little veal, and priced way out of line for such a poor dish. Don't order any Alfredo item, you will be disappointed with dry pasta. Calzone ricotta cheese is like eating dry cottage cheese.
