My husband and I didn't especially care for Aldo's. The portions are big, but it's too crowded and too casual - including the service. We had Italian dishes that were OK, certainly not great. The view is not scenic, but it does have ample outdoor seating.

We had breakfast here both mornings and it was very nice to sit on the patio and enjoy the warm weather. The food was fine.

I ordered their Eggplant Parmigiana, and it was "out of this world!" The staff was friendly and accomodating to all my needs!

I've gone to Block Island every summer of my life and my family always seemed to skip Aldo's. When one of my BI green friends came for the day she wanted to go to Aldo's. Let's just say I know why I never went. The food left me saying eh and it was dark and gloomy especially compared to the... More

Waste of money! -5 (NEGATIVE FIVE) stars for food, 4 stars for service. I have had better meals at fast food establishments. Eat elsewhere!!!

Aldo's Bakery is SO good! The baked goods are delicious and there is a huge amount of yummy food to choose from. The restaurant is good too with a lot of traditional Italian dishes. Yum!

I worked at a hotel full time and part time at a Surf shop that was located across the street from Aldo's. My coworkers and I would always sneak an order for some amazing stuffies to eat on our break. Don't stop at just the stuffies, they have an incredible bakery on premises, too!

The ice cream is good but my family dined here one evening and although the eggplant appetizer was quite good the pizza was the worst I have ever had. It tasted like it was store bought frozen pizza. I actually have had better frozen pizza. If you are looking for pizza do not go here. I can not speak on... More

The pizza at Aldo's has been my favorite on BI for decades, even though it has changed over time. What's up with that, Aldo's? I'm thinking of the heavy cheese and garlic pizza served on orange lunch trays back in the '80s. For this year's visit, the flavor and crust were nice. We had a great, attentive waiter. Do you...
