Aldino at The Vineyard is the authentic Italian restaurant that has been the ultimate dining experience in North Central San Antonio for over 20 years. From the moment you walk in, the aroma of our sauces, sizzling steaks and the pizza coming from our wood-burning oven will let you know your lunch or dinner will be one-of-a-kind. But claiming the title of the Best Italian Restaurant in San Antonio takes more than just crafting amazing classic favorites like ravioli, fettuccini primavera or a tempting margherita pizza. Being better comes with a wait staff and bartenders that treat you like family. Whether it's an intimate dinner for two, a business gathering at lunch, or a party for a large group you'll experience fine dining at its best when you come to Aldino at the Vineyard.

Great lunch specials.

I work close by and order from the lunch menu about once a month. The price is good and so is the portion, we usually have enough to save for later. The bar area is nice for a few drinks as well. Ed is always greeting his customers with a smile.

Very dependable, consistently good. Attentive service and good value. I had the lamb shank; also sampled the filet. Both were excellent, as were the salads (light, tasty Caesar dressing). A deservedly popular San Antonio eatery on the far north side.

Went there for our anniversary dinner but won't be going back for any other special event. Service was fair, could have used a little more attention since it appeared we were only one of two tables our server had at the time. Lasagna Al Forno was priced above the quality provided but at least the portion was large. Special of... More

after 4 yrs of dining at Aldino's, sad to say won't be back. One of the best things about dining at Aldino's was the service.

Really nice place to take a special person for the first date. Food was delicious, waitstaff was attentive, tables were at a nice distance from each other so that you could carry on a conversation and not worry that the table next to yours could hear it. Shrimp limone was superb and the cheese platter appetizer was enough for a... More

This restaurant has the best calamari in San Antonio, I want to say in Texas. I have tried others like Paesanos, Piattis, Joes Crab Shack, etc., and their calamari doesn't come close to Aldinos. Their calamari is fresh and lightly fried. Perfect! They have other appetizers that are very good too. Need to visit them during their happy hour. Great... More

Our visit to Aldinos was on a rainy Friday evening and the place was jumping with many families enjoying the atmosphere, the wait staff, and the food. Our meal of Bruschetta, Shrimp followed byTiramasu and a cappucino were very good. The half bottle of wine is a good idea.

Went here for the first time with my wife and we loved it! Nice atmosphere and great staff. We had the half order of calamari which was fantastic and by the way it was more than enough for 2-3 people to split. Wife had the chicken Gorgonzola and i forget the name of my dish but it was the shrimp... More
