Great Italian restaurant with lots of charm. As usual, we got here a little early and had a wine at the bar. The bartender was personable and attentive. There were several locals sitting at the bar having dinner, all regulars here-always a good sign. We hung out for a while and got the scoop from the bartender and the regulars... More

We were put in a nice room with about 10 tables but we were the only table our waiter was covering in that room and he forgot about us. After we complained, he took our order but the service never improved. I wish our busboy was our waiter- he was attentive. What was worse was we got to watch the... More

Nice local with classic decor "old-world Italian". A light-filled atrium is the centerpiece of the elegant dining room. Good service but a bit expensive. The eggplant parmegiana was good and the three pasta dish was ok. Chef-owners Aldo and Sergio Vitale, make you feel Italian. The place is nice for a romantic dinner.

Upscale Italian. Superb menu and specials. Terrific service. Very expensive. Surf and turf was a crab cake and filet. Everyone in our group raved about their choices.

My wife and I went to Aldo's for the first time to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. The experience was fantastic from top to bottom. We arrived a little early for our reservation, so we took a seat at the bar. The bartender Margret was great. She made my wife a special cocktail using a ginger liquor that most... More

Outstanding Restaurant. Formal service in a pretty room. Great ambiance. Quiet setting. I had a pasta dish with boar's meat and sauce and my wife had the red snapper special. Super wine list. The waiter was very knowledgeable. Worth the price. A great evening.

What can I say - best Italian meal we've had in a long time. True authentic Italian. Superb service. Margaret the bartender is the best. Friendly, welcoming staff. Elegant dining but not stuffy. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend for any occasion. It is one of THE best restaurants we have been to - ever!
