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.

Not on the Menu? No Problem!

One would call this restaurant a "Neighborhood Gem" as it has always been popular and consistently good, in both the previous location in Central Park Mall and the current one at The Vineyard.

Met friends here for a weeknight happy hour - good venue. Good time span (4pm-7pm), low noise level, moderate crowd, good drink prices and nice selection of yummy appetizers at reduced price (even tho server tried to steer us to the dinner appetizer menu).

We've been going to Aldino's for 4 years and they have always served great food and excellent service at a reasonable price. And, yes, their calamari is to die for! They will try to accommodate any special requests and always make us feel very welcomed. They are far better than Milano's yet they're not rated as high? Check it out... More

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

Really nice place to take a special person for the first date.

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
