Excellent food!

I had the Founder Franchese and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. My husband had Chicken Franchese and he said the same. Also, Calamari and Foccacia bread. For dessert get the Napoleon.

If you are looking for great italian food in a restaurant with live piano music, I highly recommend this place. We had great service and everything was well prepared. Loved listening to the music. Easy to get to and plenty of parking.

Passing by and stopped for lunch after reading some reviews. Much fancier than we expected. Well decorated interior and pleasant server. Nice bottle of Acrobat Pinot Grigio, appetizers of calamari and zucchini fritti accompanied by a very good tomato sauce. Then shared a pepperoni and mushroom pizza. Nice thin crust and quite good. Wish we could return for some of... More

A pre Valentine's lunch for my hubby and me . We were greeted and seated quickly. Very busy lunch crowd but service from Caitlin was very quick and efficient. We ordered 2 of the lunch special and a half bottle of wine.. House rolls were not offered but arrived after we asked for them. Unfortunately both of our meals arrived... More

Valentine's weekend was a busy one for us. We're glad Caitlin was able to accommodate your needs, and your food was prepared correctly. Unlike other Italian restaurants, we offer our focaccia bread for $4 not complimentary. We know this causes confusion for some. Although you had to send your food back we're glad you were able to salvage your meal... More

I have been going to Aldo's for 6 or 7 years. But It never fails to impress me! The ambiance is only exceeded by the quality of the service and the food. A varied menu featuring Northern Italian cuisine, with unique specials, offer quite a choice of fine dishes. If you are a fan of Veal, do not miss their... More

We have been dining at Aldo's for several years. The food is always excellent the the service top notch. They are willing to modify dishes to order to please their guests. The restaurant is always very clean and very nicely decorated. Always best to call for a reservation for evening dining..

Wasn't sure what to expect after reading reviews and having dined many times at another nice italian restaurant in Virginia beach, but was more than pleasant surprised. It was quite busy and a bit loud on a Friday night but we were seated quickly in the very back of the restaurant. Ambiance is nice, nothing special. Most people were dressed... More

Our family celebrated a birthday last evening at one of our favorite Virginia Beach places! The hardest thing is choosing between great nightly specials and the menu favs! Our waiter, Robert, gave excellent wine recommendations from Aldo's extensive wine list and also urged us to try the specials in food. We were not disappoint!

What a wonderful place for a quiet celebration. We felt special with the flowers on the table, outstanding piano player and beautiful complimentary dessert. Our server Jonathan was perfect and the food, as always, delicious. Thank you for a beautiful evening. You made us fell very special.

I have been to Aldo's for lunch and dinner with family, friends, and solo. I cannot say that anyone that I have brought there has really liked it. It is an upscale spot, with an Italian focused menu and a nicely appointed bar. The food is really just average, the wine list has better Spanish choices than Italian, and it... More
