Delicious Italian food

Manicotti was exceptional and the bread they served was perfect. There were 10 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. Great wine list. And of course service was the best.

Our server, Brandon, was excellent, as were the cocktails and food, and ambience. However, when we arrived (at our reservation time), the host informed us that our table would be ready in "10 or 15 minutes" and that we could wait at the bar - there were open tables everywhere. immediately the bar waitress comes over to collect our drink...

Aldo's is our "go to" place for a wonderful Italian lunch or dinner in Virginia Beach. The service is superior. Nice atmosphere to the restaurant. The food cannot be beat. We had lunch there today. Started out with their "signature" focaccia bread. ($4) My hubby had the penne and veggie special ($14). I had the lasagna ($14). Both were delicious... More

We took my son here for his 15th bday dinner. We live in Richmond and were visiting Va beach for the night. This was our second time at Aldos, and we enjoyed it again.

We have been going to Aldo's for our special night out for some time now. It has become a tradition. They never disappoint! The food is always wonderful. I love trying the specials. My husband loves the stuffed veal chop. He hardly tries anything else.

Celebrated our friend's 19th wedding anniversary @ Aldo's. The veal marsala was outstanding -- tender and very tasty. The salmon was also delicious as was the veal chop.

I chose Aldo's for a birthday celebration. It was not a pleasant experience from the beginning. The largest disappointment was the food. I am Italian and grew up eating authentic dishes. The quality of Aldo's food, and interpretation of "fine Italian dining", is Olive Garden quality at best.

Visited on a Sunday evening and they were busy! The focaccia bread was as always outstanding, along with a little olive oil. I had a very simple linguine and red sauce which was also excellent and in a portion for another meal.

We are trying out as many locally owned restaurants as possible before moving. After reading reviews and looking over the menu, we picked this restaurant due to the fact it appeared to be somewhat upscale without being expensive. We were not surprised as we were met by two hosts who were wearing suits. I'm guessing that one is the owner.... More

My stomach is growling just remembering the meal we enjoyed at Aldo's. We made reservations after getting a recommendation for this place and snagged a wonderful table on their outside covered patio area on a beautiful summer night. The hostess said that not many people take advantage of the outside area, but I highly recommend it. The live piano music... More
