“Great food, weak services”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

I like their food so much, specially the mushroom soup served on bread plat, I recommend.
But the service quite and the furniture, they need to change decoration .. specially the atmosphere is comfortable for romantic people.

About the parking, they have a big problem as its shared with other restaurants and small!!, and not organized parking.

“good food but not furniture !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

I have been a loyal customer in Aldante as their food are very good and tasty. however, the main two major issues are the old furniture and decoration, as well as parking availability !!

I am taking a break from Aldante until they change their furniture at least.
