I went to this restaurant on a Friday night with my high school friends. We were served by a delightfulp young waiter who was on his second night on the job and was very anxious to please us. The value of the restaurant was very good due to a 25% discount that we got from a Transmedia card. I began... More

The food is excellent and the service is fantastic. Great Italian restaurant. Pete, the owner, is a fantastic guy and made the dinner even more special. Have been there many times and will always go there when I am in Manhattan.

Aleo is my go to place when I want to have a great meal in NYC. The staff are very professional the food is top noch and the wine list is very good. But most of all I like the back garden dinning area best on a warm summer night . Try it when in town.

Aleo on 20th between 5th and 6th has delicious fresh food at a very reasonable price. The restaurant has italian influence. We had the Antipasto Freddo (Soppresatta, imported cheeses, etc) for an appetizer, it was excellent. We also had the pasta, sweet sausage over broccoli rabe - which was delicious. I had never heard of broccoli rabe before...I will seek... More

Aleo is a lovely little restaurant on 20th street near the Flatiron. The food was very good as was the service. We were surprised it wasn't crowded on a Saturday night. But we'll definitely be back.
