After hearing about the restaurant from other friends, we decided to make our first visit. The eight of us were not disappointed. Aldo's may very well be the best Italian restaurant in the Cleveland area. Don't be put off by the location ( in a small shopping center) or the long line of people waiting for a table. The food...

Started with calamari and bread. Was so delicious that I didn't have room for the entree. I also had a salad that was OK, but that didn't help with being unable to finish the entree. The entree of what little I had was delicious. It was veal and excellent with a side order of pasta. The sauce was delicious and... More

Great little Italian gem. I spent several years in Italy and by far the fare at Aldo's comes close to authentic Italian food. The pasta was perfection. The "soul" was not cooked out as in so many American Italian restaurants. The dinner options were numerous and varied. There's something for everyone. Although very full after our wonderful dinner we opted... More

This reminds me of a trattoria in Italy. Very much a Neighborhood Restaurant. Only about 25 seats, so packed and loud. Staff is very attentive. Food was excellent. We had veal and pasta dishes and they were great. The best was yet to come. The desserts were AWESOME!! Gelato was as good as in Italy. There is no bar. Beer... More

I love authentic Italian and I don't know if you can find more authentic than Aldo's. First time there and had my son-in-law not been there before we probably would not have found it. It is worth the trip and search. Go, slow down, relax, and enjoy this bit of Italy.

This place was ok Italian food. The staff was supper friendly, but there was nothing special about the food. The menu had all of the expected Italian favorites and a decent variety of appetizers. I did like the stuffed hot pepper appetizer.

I heard about Aldo's from a lot of people but never knew where it was. A wrong turn put us at a traffic light and there it was. Best mistake we ever made. Aldo's is not just Italian excellence, it's excellence in any culture. You get hit with a jolt of friendly on your first step inside and it only... More

A friend of mine described this place as a 5-star restaurant in a 2-star location, and that's about right. A family owned and run restaurant, the service and food are always excellent. I always bring my out-of-town guests here, and they always love it. The Mussels in Marinara Sauce is so good, people who don't like Mussels love it. And... More
