Aldo's Pizzeria and Red Brick Pub
Ranked #8 of 52 Restaurants in Rochelle
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 15, 2014

We discovered Aldo's Pizzeria & Red Brick Pub when our oldest child moved to Rochelle, IL.

Aldo makes the best Italian food I have ever had. The pasta is not frozen and reheated, it is made fresh and there are so many choices. His steaks are to perfection, broasted chicken is great and seafood excellent. Then there are the pizza choices and crusts - need I say more? My ten year old ate the stuffed crust last night and he could not believe the amount of cheese in the crust.

Not only is the food excellent, but Aldo will greet you personally and make you feel very welcome. He has a wine list to please any palette and is well versed in good wines from Europe to US producers.

To top off the the treat of dining at Aldo's, the back area the walls are a mural of an authentic Italian village and the bar area will make you feel believe you are in Italy.

We love Aldo's!! Special occasions, family dinners or just a couples night out are all reasons to choose a visit to this restaurant. It is worth the drive from Wisconsin.

Our crew of 4 was in town for contract work at a local hotel. Aldo's was recommended by the front desk staff. It is in the downtown of Rochelle. We went on a Friday and Saturday night. The first night we had their specialty pizza and it was EXCELLENT! 2nd night we went for the all you can eat BBQ ribs. Love the atmosphere. The owner was out and about each night visiting every table and talking with them. The atmosphere is what I would think a pizzeria in Sicily would be like as the owner actually runs one in Sicily! A wine selection specifically from Sicily and the portions were great! We all loved it.

We eat here 3 to 4 times a year, as a couple, we have also gone with friends. Aldo is aways there to greet and seat you. He always has a wine or a new beer recommendation. We always get a good server and Aldo is always making sure that your needs are being met. We have never had a bad meal here. He has a large and diverse menu, Italian and American choices. The sitting area behind the pub is modeled after Aldo's home town in Italy. Aldo is loud but he care about his customers greatly.
