We saw Aldos on Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives and everything looked fabulous. It is right on the little harbor and we ate outside on a beautiful sunny day on Christmas Eve and our Bichon doggy was welcomed with a bowl of water. Our server was fabulous and helpful.
We started off with Bloody Mary's and the Fried Calamari Appetizer. The bloody mary was very good and the calamari was a huge serving, fresh and tender. The best we've had.
I order the Cioppino because I was so impressed by the dish made on DDD show which looked to be generous with the crab. No so for me. I had 3 pieces of crab, 2 skinny pieces with hardly any meat in the legs and 1 generous size piece, only it was an empty shell. I looked through the broth to see if it had fallen out but no. I was disappointed because crab is my favorite meat. The dish was generous with the other seafood portions and quite tasty.
My husband had the Coconut Shrimp and Chips/fries. It was a good dish but not fabulous. We both expected to taste coconut on the shrimp but it tasted like regular batter fried. It was tender and had good flavor but not the flavor we expected.
Yes we will be back. There were a lot of things on the menu that we'd still like to try, like their homemade ravioli.
