Not the price level most would pay for a meal out, but the food is excellent,the staff professional, overall a wonderful experience. We had asked for a table that would allow for quiet conversation, and we were provided a table in a small room which fit the bill. Victor was an excellent server, a great experience.

Fascinating that this place keeps getting a best of Baltimore vote. Some of the most mediocre Italian I have ever had outside of Europe. Crunchy risotto for a starter and mushy fettuccine for main. On the other hand, staff is lovely.

Aldo's is a local favorite with a well deserved reputation as being the best Italian restaurant in Baltimore for many years. Sadly, my first visit to Aldo's since a successful office holiday party was a disappointment. Already top end prices have been jacked up 20% which is bad enough but to combine this increase with a move to all a... More

Outstanding Italian cuisine. Sauces are made the old-fashioned way, sweetened with carrots not sugar and slow cooked to preserve flavor. Veal Osso Buco won national awards on Food Network and is incredible. Everything is fantastic, including the wine list.. and ask for any homemade desserts.

From the appetizer to the tiramisu and the homemade complimentary glass of lemon cello ,this is by far the best italien food I have ever eaten. The linguine with clams was not gritty and there wasn,t a lot of oil in the bottom of the plate. They make their own pasta. The tiramisu melted in your mouth. We met the... More

A Baltimore Gem! Had an amazing meal and was impressed by wine list. The service was meticulous, the atmosphere was beautiful, and the lemon cello was the best I ever had. Will be back!

Aldo’s restaurant in the Little Italy area of Baltimore is a charming, and I’d say trendy, restaurant in a very nice area of Baltimore, only minutes from the inner harbor. We were a party of five on a Tuesday evening in April 2014. From my perspective the atmosphere was great, very comforting, and decorated well. The wait staff as well... More

For those who want to taste a little bit of italian cousine, I recomend this restaurant. Located in a charming neighborhood, walking distance from all hotels located at the Inner Harbor waterfront. Don´t miss the tiramissu desert.

My husband and I took my son there on a Sunday night (which is nice and quiet in the restaurant). Valet parking. Wait staff is very attentive. Appetizers were excellent. My son had mushroom risotto which was excellent, I had caprese salad with burratta which was excellent. Bolognese was superb. Pasta was so light and thin very flavorful , surf... More
