Aldo's remains the best restaurant in Virginia Beach. The wait staff is friendly and informative, the food is fantastic, and the wine list is unequaled in the region.

Went here for a good meal and did not disappoint. Our server was wonderful, drinks were great and food was delicious. My only complaint would be 39 for a dinner special and there was no steak or lobster in that dish is a little steep. Stay bar side ... Much better ambience. All in all good

Read the glowing reviews and decided to celebrate this evening...we had been there a few years ago when in town and were disappointed at that time, but we hoped it had improved? I reserved thru Open Table, and made a note that it was my birthday today, but no one who greeted us mentioned this. We ordered drinks and water... More

While the entrees are good, it is the appetizers that knock us out. The focaccia bread is the best of anywhere, especially dipped in olive oil. Serves two. A bit much for one. The calamari appetizer is lightly breaded and tender. Works best for two. Could be a meal for one. After the first time I had it here, I... More

Elegant, yet friendly and local. The food is wonderful . . . the shrimp in gorgonzola cream sauce delicious! The appetizers great. Fresh, light sauces. Not a huge menu with beef, chicken and seafood choices but very gourmet selections. The perfect venue for a special occasion. They will treat you right.

A few phrases describe Aldo's: Consistent entree preparation. Friendly, knowledgable wait staff Great bar area with the best bartenders! If you order an entree once and return months later, it will be exactly the same. The wait staff are personable and have an almost photographic memory of the menu and specials. They also are very well versed concerning their extensive... More

We dined at Aldo's last week and, as always, everything was very good. We were greeted by the owner at the door who acted as if he knows us, although I am not sure if he really remembers us or had just looked at the reservation screen. Doesn't matter! My salmon was cooked perfectly and my wife got her usual... More

Food is excellent and the service is also excellent. It is a bit pricey though. I will be back and for one simple reason that my dietary requirements were met to my satisfaction.
