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.

Our dinner at Aldo's was perfect. The place is not a spaghetti emporium, although fine pasta is there to be had -- rather, it gets to the heart of fine Italian cuisine by serving up a varied menu of fresh and seasonal dishes, accompanied by good wines at fair prices. Madame and I began with foccacia bread, which you can... More
