Great food; actual "hot" wings!

Wonderful find right off I-81. Very good homemade Italian food. Friendly wait staff. Excellent Buffalo wings with a well thought out habanero sauce that will actually have you sweating after 3 or 4 pieces.

A quick lunch near the highway on my way to another destination was a great stop. The family atmosphere - Mom(from Italy), her sons and their daughters (from Queens) made me feel at home and fed me with true love on a plate. I will be back.

This restaurant sells coupons on-line to get promoted, confirms them when the order is placed, and refuses to accept them afterwards. There is no respect for the customer. They make you pay for the whole order and argue with you. Also they refuse to give you your coupon back, which is very rude, especially when you want to complain to... More

The coupon book you came in with are strictly given out to people in our community to raise money for non profit organizations. I do not sell these books. The employee who took your order, when asked, told the person over the phone we only honor one coupon per order. They then said they would like to order both items... More

This place is great for anything from a couple slices of pizza for lunch to a full dinner. The food is very good and reasonably priced, and the atmosphere is wonderful.

My family splits out time between Whitney Point and midtown Manhattan, and Aiello's is our favorite Italian restaurant anywhere. We've seen Charlie and Vinnie's dining rooms and menu grow more varied and sophisticated over the last twenty-five years, but their terrific thin-crust pizza and pasta dishes have remained reliably delicious. The friendly, personable service from all the staff at Aiello's... More

Charlie and brother Vinnie Aiello are always present to insure that the customer is taken care of. A friendly place with a dining room or lounge option...the wood-fired pizza is great as are the traditional Italian menu items. The Chicken Piccata should be tried. I had the best Canolli of my life here. Call ahead and your pizza will be... More

If your looking for a great Italian dinner this is the place. Convenient to interstate 81, Aiello's is one of the best Italian restaurants outside the New York Metro area. Excellent food with generous portions. Try their desserts, their homemade Tiramisu is out of this world. Friendly, warm family atmosphere. You won't be disappointed!

I love their gluten free pizza! We call ahead when traveling and they have it ready for when we arrive. Quick and easy exit off of Rt. 81.

We are in full agreement regarding the chicken Parmesan . Not processed, it is the very best. Being on a perpetual diet I ordered a warm chicken spinach veggie wrap without the wrap- they made it a lunch portion without hesitation. We got there at 11am, fast in and out traveling at that hour.

Followed a highway "dining" sign taking a chance really paid off, generous portions of quality food with a big selection. What a surprise in such a small town. This place would do well in any large city. Folks in Syracuse (north of Whitney Point) or Binghamton (south) would be very satisfied. Thanks to our very friendly and helpful server Giuseppa.
