Aldo's Deli is not a deli. It is a real restaurant serving authentic Italian dishes. My favorite is the veal parmigiana or piccata. My wife enjoys the pizza offerings. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. The dining room is nicely decorated and open. We enjoy eating lunch and dinner there with friends and family.

...I just came home from Italy, so I'm a little spoiled! Aldo's Cafe is certainly authentic in their cuisine and service style! We met for working lunch meeting...food was fantastic, service good and the cafe itself has a lovely vibe.

Small modern upscale cafe with great salads and pasta dishes. Dine in or take out. Good quality but not what you would call gourmet. Nice atmosphere.

Now known as Aldo's cafe, this a relatively small place with nice ambiance. Our party had antipasti, burrata salad, sandwiches, and a pasta dish. Servings were generous and delicious. Service was also very good.

Excellent lunch time visit. What a discovery. Our Cavatelli with sausage was perfectly prepared. I'm quite fussy about my Italian food, jaded by the fine talents of a grandma, mother, uncles, and brother. The food I enjoyed here was of that high-caliber standards that I grew up with. My companion and I shared a delicious Mortadella sandwich as well. (It's... More

What a nice surprise to find this restaurant. A variety of pastas were served to our large family gathering, and they were all enjoyed. My eggplant dish was delicious. Good beverage variety too. The service was excellent. Unfortunately we were all too full to try any of the desserts. Next time!

The food is simply wonderful! Welcoming staff who always treat you like family. Local crowd that comes back repeatedly. Pasta's and chicken dishes are especially tantalizing. Spinach salad and pizzas are simply delicious. The minestrone soup is filled with fresh vegetables and is one of our favorites. Never get tired of this little gem.

Don't be put off by the word "deli" at Aldo's. This little cafe serves up great Italian food in an intimate, romantic setting. The tables have tablecloths, the service is friendly, helpful and accommodating, and the food is outstanding. This is a little gem in Los Gatos.

Very nice Italian restaurant with delicious food, good choices and attentive staff. Very comfortable and intimate setting to have a nice meal. Prefer this much more than the main restaurant on Winchester.
