Description: “One of the best Italian restaurants in America” / "The wine list at Aldo's is exemplary, easily one of the best on the east coast” / “This is clearly a labor of familial love, and it shows in every dish" -- John Mariani (of Esquire Magazine), 2012 Aldo’s is Baltimore’s most celebrated Italian restaurant. Aldo's features Chef/Owner Aldo Vitale's delicately balanced southern-influenced regional Italian cuisine, served in sumptuously appointed rooms steeped in classical Italian tradition.

Despite a rather limited menu, and without any seafood for the daily special, Aldo's food was delicious. We were there with our two children, and the service was very nice but slow, especially for the girls. Probably would have been a better choice for just a couple, but overall good food and drink at somewhat inflated prices,.

Superlative experience. As good as any restaurant I've experienced in Italy. I would travel to Baltimore just to eat at Aldo's.

Had dinner with my husband here on a week night while in Baltimore for a few days. We were first seated in the "atrium," but it was very cold so we asked to move. The staff very nicely accommodated us and moved us to a much warmer room with no draft right on us. A good start. Nice service continued... More

OK so I was lucky enough to catch the special Baltimore price deal but for $30 prix fixe I got tuna carpaccio on what seemed to be some sort of polenta chapati, a beautifully cooked piece of steak and a deconstructed limoncello cheesecake. I eat out regularly in the top London restaurants and this compared easily - well balanced, presented... More

Our table for two was under the Atrium. A little tight, but ok. The food was very good, but not spectacular for the price. Wine was delicious but at $14 per glass, it should have been. The wait staff was outstanding.

Overall it was excellent. Be warned that if they are busy, it may be noisy due to acoustics. We waited too long for our first drink order, but the house Chianti was excellent. Bread was freshly baked and was perfect with the olive oil. Started off with the lobster infused risotto, very good, the baby lobster tail was so tender!... More

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
