Not memorable, but it's okay food. Can't go wrong with fried artichokes and pizza! The ice cream is good, too. The Ice Cream Place (across the street) is still my favorite, but once in awhile we'll go to Aldo's for variety's sake.

We had a great pizza and bottle of wine on our last visit to Block Island. The wait staff was happy and friendly and made us feel at home.

We order 2 types of pizza which were served promptly. They were both ok, good but not great. The shrimp scampi was also good. The adjacent bakery has tons of sweet treats.

Aldo's Rest and bakery are the very few places where you can get a great meal and not be crushed by credit card overload. Go for the veal parm, some the best ever. The the stuffed quahogs are excellent (stuffies).
