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

My friend said that she had the perfect place for lunch and she couldn't have been more right! She has been here many times and this was my first. I have been raving to my family and friends all day about the whole experience. The service (family) was so warm and friendly. They really love what they do and get... More

Had the pleasure of attending this hidden gem with a large group. A member of our group eats here frequently and insisted we try it. They are normally closed on Mondays but agreed to seat us under a private reservation. The meal and service was the best Italian I have had in years. The chef paid close attention to how... More

Great food, service - Deserts were to die for!! Restaurant is quite small and they reservations are taken for large groups. Staff goes out of their way to accommodate. The best Terimisu I've had outside of Italy.
