Description: Anna and Steve Papa started a family tradition with a small pizzaria and sub shop on Block Island. Baking and cooking has long been a family tradition, starting with Anna's father, Aldo, and her mother Maria, who helped develop the idea of the Papa's first pizzaria. Over the years just as their family grew so did the restaurant. Now, Aldo's Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant on Block Island has been serving delicious Italian Specialties for over 32 Years! Aldo's prides it selves on our commitment to quality, freshness and customer satisfaction. Aldo's hopes to continue our promise of providing great tasting Italian and American Specialties in years to come. Aldo's offers a number of Italian and seafood favorites all made fresh from only the finest ingredients. Our extensive menu offers a variety of Seafood and Pasta specials, Subs, Salads and Appetizer all made from the highest quality meats, breads and vegetables. We also have a full bar, stocked with all the favorites. Aldos has come a long way from just selling pizza and subs. Aldos is a family run restaurant, both of Anna and Steve's children, Christina and Steve work in the restaurant to help run it every summer. A true Italian family working together to bring their italian specialties to visiting families every season. Ben and Jerry's. Vermont's famous ice cream is here on Block Island! - New location this summer, just 100 yards from the ferry! On Water Street, at the Seaside Marketplace. Enjoy classic Ben and Jerry's flavors plus sundaes, shakes and smoothies. Inquire about our off-premise ice cream parties. What more do you need? Well, maybe this coupon for 10% off.

“Pizza was great...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Stopped by one evening for a great cheese pizza and a bottle of wine. Even though it was their last weekend of the season, you'd never know it by the hospitality (and the free sampling of dessert)

“Pasta on the Block”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Wide range of Italian entrees, pasta, submarines (hoagies) and pizza. Always bustling. Most patrons enjoy sitting outdoors. The restaurant is named after the patriarch who opened his bakery decades ago. There is still a bakery attached that also offers Italian gelato. Like most restaurants on Block Island, very casual and geared to the summer crowds. Right in Old Harbor, one block in from the water. No water views. One of the more reasonably priced eateries on Block Island.
