We have gone to Aldo's ever since we arrived 7 years ago - for us being dog friendly is the best aspect - plus friendly professional staff and deliciious food.

I love this place. We are seated right down at eye level with the boats at the Santa Cruz Harbor. Lovely setting. I read that some people "fled" when they saw the location and that the "restaurant" is basically a food truck. While this is...More

Showed up at 3:25, 35 mins before they are set the close, paid for the lot parking, walked up and all the employees were cleaning up the kitchen and patio. Disappointed they closed early. Thanks for nothing

Stopped by for a late brunch expecting a crowd. Nope! Lovely dog friendly location right beside the wharf. Bloody Mary was excellent. I had the Cioppino. Yum! Go a bit early as they were out of calamari.

Aldo’s serves admirable local cuisine along side of the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. Open patio offers views of the harbor with lots of sail boats. Plan to pay for parking and parking meters are easy to find. There is only patio seating and food is...More

With only outdoor seating, you must enjoy Aldo's on a nice day (not too difficult in CA). We visited three years ago and returned just for the cioppino. They've moved closer to land but now have proximate parking (a surprise we didn't know until the...More

Food is good. The view is a 10. You are eating at the harbor. There is a lot of boats, and people rowing or sailing by. Very relaxing and scenic. Service is good.
