We travelled for business and had been looking for a great Italian restaurant and had been directed to Aldo's... Not sure about the hype we decided to try it... My mother and wife are italian and it would rival their best Sunday Sauce... Thats how good it was... Service was also great.

I really was looking forward to eating at this restaurant but what a disappointment. I ordered
the Linguine with white clam sauce and had to send it back. It was so dry and overloaded with a
wine taste that it was unedible. I then ordered one of the specials, some sort of baked flounder with aioli pasta and roasted brussel sprouts. For this area, you would expect fresh fish but this was definitely not. It was soggy and tasteless. The only thing decent were the brussel sprouts. Let me say it is not inexpensive to eat here. I would not recommend this restaurant. The only thing positive was the atmosphere, otherwise, try Mannino's. So much better.

Six of us recently dined at Aldos for a pre-holiday get together. We all loved our meal choices so much that we should have played musical chairs...the plates were being passed around, and almost licked clean. Sorry...but true. My husband had his "usual" penne mare monte..which didn't disappoint..always consistently delicious with large succulent shrimp that popped when you bit into them, along with chicken slices and covered in a light cream tomato sauce. You know I could describe each dish, but really...when you leave Aldos..you think..WOW..that was a special treat! If you want great food, fantastic service and a lovely dining experience..go to ALDOS!
BUONASERA!

Located just a few minutes from the oceanfront in virginia beach's hilltop area, this place is fantastic. Usually with 3 other people, we eat there when we want to eat the best. Yes, it's a little pricey, but the value is there. If you are a tourist, you could eat at a restaurant close to your oceanfront room. You'll be paying for that proximity to the oceanfront. Go ahead, and treat your self to better food for the same money. It's about a 10 minute drive west off of laskin road (aka 31st st) in a shopping center. The food is excellent. But, you'll go broke getting a good buzz on. The drink prices are steep. Theres a state run liquor store close by to get your alcohol fix.
