Andiamo!!! If you're lucky enough to sail to Block Island and anchor in Great Salt Pond (New Harbor), you'll be met with the yell of Andiamo first thing in the morning, as Aldo's skiff weaves among the boats selling their pastries, cakes, breakfast sandwiches, coffee, yogurts, ice, etc. Several generations of Aldos have kept this tradition alive. Their main bakery... More

Our first day on BI, we stopped by for a quick, air conditioned lunch. Aldo's was just the ticket! Food was fresh & their red sauce was wonderful. I loved the eggplant parm! We ended up going back for dinner another evening.

Stopped in to Aldo's around 7:30pm for a take-out pizza. You have to order in the bar, which is just a short walk through the restaurant. Take-out menu offered a lot of choices from: plain cheese, to build you own, to a few specialties. Quick wait wait time for a custom pizza and it was delicious. We ordered a large... More

I had penne vodka and was surprised at how good it was. My wife had the meat lovers pizza. Was very delicious. I would definitely come back. The seats were alittle uncomfortable but it's a close walk from our hotel and near all the ice cream places for desert.

First, I want to say that I've rented bikes from Aldos for years and years, and have always had a great experience with them. So, we went next door for appetizers and drinks. Service was very slow... the waitress seemed overwhelmed with three tables (that I could see). We ordered 2 glasses of wine, the BBQ wings and the baked... More

Ali's donuts are light, fluffy and glazed with heavenly concoctions of bliss. The shop itself is a bit on the unkept side. It's a tough crowd and obviously not a neat one. If you are on the island and want a cup of coffee and a donut or pastry it's the place to go. Simple as that. If you are... More

We go to Aldo's when we are on island and have always had an enjoyable dining experience, until now. Seafood pasta was blah at best and thrown on the plate. Bread was like cardboard wonderbread, no taste. Eggplant also very bland. So many places to have dinner, not wasting $ here again.

The staff is friendly and service was great which is what bumped them up to average. But the food did not impress me. I ordered a chicken club and was very disappointed at the amount of chicken. One slice of tomato, one slice of cheddar and half a slice of lettuce. I had to add salt to get any flavor.... More

Situated in town and is a complex of restaurant, bakery and ice cream parlor. The Italian food was exceptional and service very professional. We enjoyed a pastry and ice cream after the meal. Perfect! We also took back to the boat one of Aldo's Blueberry Pies-the best I have ever had.
