Our investment club had our holiday party at Aldo's Restaurant last night. As was mentioned in other reviews, the exterior is unassuming, and it is not located in a trendy section of town. But, WOW, what an experience! It feels like you are walking into a small unpretentious home of an old friend. Everyone in the restaurant, including other diners,... More

This place was ranked in Cleveland's top 25 to eat at in May 2015. Wow! The place is in a strip mall, it is very unassuming. The staff is great. They have plenty of specials if you don't find something on the menu. Or they will make something special if you ask. This place is a must do!!

Stumbled in here on accident on a Monday night. Even though they were closed for a private party, the owner (Aldo) invited me to stay and eat at his table with his friend. Enjoyed a wonderful seafood crepe, a nice thin piece of beef with mushroom sauce and corn on the cob preceded by a great bowl of clam chowder... More

Always a surprise.....in a good way. You may have to search to find it but the effort is worth is. It's more like a family gathering than a restaurant. All that's missing is for the servers to say, 'mangia, mangia. To list our favorites would be like writing the menu. Since my first review my 'reason for living' is even... More

Aldo's is hidden in a nondescript store store front that is in severe need of sprucing up. The kitchen is on the left as you enter and the decor is understated. It is a small operation revered by locals. Many reviewers proclaim "fantastic". One of the specialities is veal dishes. We had eggplant for an appetizer along with calamari. The... More

Aldo’s is a throwback to the past—when the best restaurants were family-owned and ran, when service was personal and joyful, where meals were prepared to order, where you could expect the chef to greet you warmly at your table and where the regulars took time to smile and make first-timers feel welcome. Walking into Aldo’s was like walking into a... More
