We ran into this spot by accident and completely fell in love. The owner and the hostess were fantastic. They made us feel right at home. Outside of the warm interactions, the grilled chicken wings impressed us the most. We can never find grilled, most restaurants have fried. Great selling point and we will be back!

If you really like great Italian food then this is the place to come. It is definitely pure Italian and it even does gluten free options. Yum

My wife and I enjoyed a most awesome special lunch before going back to work and to celebrate her birthday later this week. Our waiter, Boris, who we've known for years, was ecstatic to see us as we hadn't seen him in quite some time. Everything on the menu is fresh, from local farms and prepared with the utmost of...

The food is excellent. I had the whole chicken ( which I normally never order chicken out) but it was one of the best dishes I have ever had! The wine is even better. Try the white from Westminster winery. You will not be disappointed! The desserts could use some work. The service is excellent.

Lucky us! It was our wedding anniversary and howard country restaurant week. Even more so, we chose to dine at AIDA bistro. What a special celebration and made to feel that way with a gift of champagne toast and best wishes signed small dessert, but perhaps more important the personal touch of both the owner and the server. We have... More

I have waited 2.5 months to write this review in order to give Aida enough time to rectify the situation. My in-laws tasked me to select the restaurant for the rehearsal dinner (as they were unfamiliar with area). I chose Aida Bistro based on its reputation for excellent food and excellent service. My husband and I had lunch there prior... More

I have been here many times. Food, service and wine are all great. The wine on tap is a unique experience.

Great food, great wine, great times! I visit Aida's with friends or as a chance to unwind by myself. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has a warm family food. The food menu is amazing and their wine menu is extensive. Their food is fresh made and many items are local grown. I will continue to keep this on... More

Service was good. Menu was limited but offered fresh ingredients. I ordered grilled chicken salad. I didn't care for the dressing that came with order. It seemed that the chef was trying a combination of flavors that I didn't think tasted that good. Portions were adequate and the price was high.

Thank Carm747
