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.

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

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!
