What doesn't Aldo's have? This place isn't just an Italian restaurant it is also an ice cream shop bakery and you could also rent mopeds and bikes but this place isn't just a restaurant it is a place to have fun and everyone feels like they are at home there;)

I have posted about Aldo's in the past after eating at the restaurant which I will say was great. This time my family was on Block Island celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary and we had them cater a clam bake. Anna and Steve were very accommodating, easy to work with and answered every request we made. They provided, chowder,... More

We had 5 people for dinner and thought Italian would be a pleasant change. Wrong, pasta under cooked and terrible sauce, calamari smothered in banana peppers and under cooked. Piccata beige in color and only flavor was capers. Pizza nothing better than a frozen one. Not cheap and horrible. Save your money.

We have eaten at Ald's in the past and it is so-so but over the weekend we went and it seemed to have taken a fall. The food was not fully cooked, bland sauces and stale bread that tasted like it was days old. Not worth the trip.

While on vacation we ordered a large veggie pizza. It was delicious, so good we ordered a second a few days later! The service was excellent as always. We are sure to go to Aldo's every summer!

If you're on the Island for a while, you may want to try something other than seafood. OK, get to Aldo's! Good pizza, a nice spaghetti and meatball fix and top it off with a nice cannoli and expresso!

We ordered the personal pizza with mushrooms and olives and the eggplant calzone. We've had MUCH better. They were bland and not worth the price. Our server was also not attentive, which didn't help matters. Needless to say, we won't go back.

BEST RESTAURANT ON BLOCK ISLAND!!!! Aldo's has the freshest seafood, best Italian pasta dishes, and most amazing pizza on the island!!! The waitstaff at Aldo's strives for a 5 star experience every time we eat at Aldo's! We had delicious espresso martinis and the most amazing bucket drinks (cruzan confusion), started with there delectable stuffed mushrooms and you can't leave... More

I just love their pizza! I tried few different one and they are all great! The dough is thin and crunchy like a like it. I lived in Italy and it's really hard for me to find pizza that I like in USA, but this one definitely gets five stars!

Wonderful place to stop for ice cream on Block Island. Always worth a stop (or two, or three). The breakfast pastries are also wonderful.
