I have been there once for dinner and a few times for coffee. The food is classic Italian and does not falter. The coffee is fresh and strong and the staff is warm and helpful. Great pizza and sandwiches and if you want a Moped or bike they have rentals as well.

Aldo's is exactly what one should expect in the middle of a tourist town surrounded by moped, cycle, and other rentals along with fudge shops. I didnt eat in the restaurants, I stopped in for coffee in the afternoon. A takeaway, large drip "Seattle's Best" coffee was $3.60. When I review here, I try not to get emotional. But getting...

The restaurant was located next to our hotel so it couldn't be more convenient. Each night around 6 pm we would see people start streaming in for dinner, many of whom seamed to be 'locals". It was't extremely busy when we went but the service was very good. However the waiter did get one of our orders wrong (veal instead... More

Very good lunch selection especially their wraps. Good size servings - enough to share. Friendly and courteous service.

There are 4 places in the middle of town for ice cream- Block island (cranky vibe), Ben and Jerry's (why, is this Vermont?) the Ice Cream Parlor (home made whipped cream and hot fudge sauce but suspiciously mum on the topic of where their ice cream is made) and Aldo's. I like Aldo's more flavors than you can count, even... More

My wife and I took an early ferry on recent day trip to Block Island and were looking for a place where we could sit, have a cup of coffee, and plan our bike riding day. Someone pointed us to Aldos Bakery, which is attached to Aldo's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria. It is also a very short walk from the... More

The only reason this place stays in business is due to the high volume of unsuspecting tourists traveling to Block Island for the first time. My husband was the one who insisted on purchasing a couple of items from Aldo's bakery. If you read my earlier review, you will see what I already think of this place so it was... More

Never did breakfast at Aldo's but we tried it and liked it. The egg burritos were excellent and the home fries were just right. The coffee was very good too, no burned taste that I was fearing.

if you want great pizza, go to Aldo's! 8 of us went there and had 3 large pizzas, and two past dishes, and salads. The meat lovers pizza was a hit! 3 of us had the prociutto and arugula salad. The waiter suggested adding carmelized onions and balsamic glaze to it. We went with his recomendation and it was to... More

We have visited Block Island three times and we always end up at Aldo's. You just can't beat them. The Pepperoni Bread is to die for and their Pizza is just as good. I tried their Clam Chowder and I liked it better than the expensive place down the street. If you want affordable, family food with great people and... More
