We went there on a Friday and were just in time to get a table. So glad we tried it: the food was delicious and the atmosphere was authentic Italian. We had the grilled salmon with vegetables (special) and eggplant parmigiana (menu). Dessert was tiramisu and cherry ice cream. Everything was delicious. Highly recommended!

My son played hockey two minutes from Aldo's for two years and I had driven by too many times to count and never thought about stopping. What a mistake! Great food, great service and a great meal! Don't drive by, stop in, you won't leave hungry.

We go to Aldos often. We love it! The decor could be updated but we go for the food not the decor. I usually get the eggplant special with extra marinara. Their sauce is awesome! My husband gets calamari steak, which is so good and I've never seen that anywhere else. I love the salad dressing. It's simple and delish!... More

Fresh, flavorful and authentic. The place looks like nothing from the outside and is cozy inside, the service was prompt and good, but mostly it's about great Italian food. The list of specials was long, all variations on the regular menu. I like that the chef didn't seem to feel the need to get trendy, just keeping the basics outstanding.... More

With many great restaurant choices in Cleveland it is easy to overlook the small Italian places in the neighborhood. It has been 15-20 years since I've been here and it's still a great local Italian restaurant. I so glad I stopped by.

Neighborhood restaurant with a family feel. Wait staff is great (some are Aldo's family). Food is good. I recommend Aldo's seafood special. Ample portions

Very small but quaint Italian restaurant. It feels like you are in Italy. Big pictures on the walls take you there. As soon as we were seated the waiter asked if we wanted vino. One merlot & one moscato please. Then the salads were brought to our table. We can't get past ordering the spaghetti & meatballs which were outstanding!... More

Friends and I visited Aldo's recently and were not disappointed. The food at Aldo's reminds me of the food I enjoyed during several years in Italy. It's very authentic. They have a great wine list and also sell some nice wines by the carafe and half carafe. Our appetizers, dinners and desserts were just delicious. I'm always grateful for the... More

Great Italian food. Eggplant - not fried - not breaded - tender and excellent. Pasta, bread, drinks, desserts. Well worth the trip. Call ahead.
