    Dined on 10/5/2014
    I hadn't been to Aldo's in over 20 years; my wife and I went with another couple. The food is still delicious, though tends to be on the heavy side. Lots of sauces and pastas, light on the meat, but delectable. Great service. Very expensive. Wine list is long, but bottles start around 40+ $ and there are just a few of those. Appetizers are yummy but double-digit. The restaurant is built from a refurbished old home. The tables are very small, ideal for two, but too crowded for four. The chairs are hard and uncomfortable. Quaint, but feels confining. You can clearly hear conversations at the tables next to you. There is outside seating but it's a seasonal thing. Overall, okay for special nights for couples, if you can afford it!

    I took my girlfriend there for our 5 month anniversary Sept. 15, 2014. It was my first time at Aldo's. I picked her up & wouldn't tell her our destination. It turns out she had been there 3 times before for lunch... I guess I might have guessed since it was not too far from her work. The restaurant was something to stare at - beautiful set up and atmosphere, quiet, relaxing, and romantic. The waiter was professional, had great timing, and we didn't need to ask him for anything. The food was top notch - I had the Pollo Picatta and she had the Spaghetti with Meatballs. Their flavors and sauces wake your taste buds up - excellent quality. I recommend it to anyone who likes Italian food and we're definately returning for more!

    I entertained friends from Mexico who are world travelers, very knowledgeable about foods and wine. They were delighted and impressed with the ambience, the food, and the service. The special that evening was outstanding, and the kitchen accommodated the dietary needs of one of my guests to perfection. I would recommend the restaurant specifically for "excellent dining."

    We were looking for a classic Italian restaurant to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. The private dining room for our group of 12 was perfect...the waitstaff attentive and the food was spot on. The range of the menu was exactly what we needed for our diverse set of tastes...from traditional spaghetti and meatballs to their Caccuicco alla Toscana (seafood stew) to the grilled veal chops...all wonderfully prepared, authentic and very tasty.

    Had heard of Aldo's for long time, but never been there. Some unique and all good food choices. A bit on pricey side. Atmosphere and service are excellent. For a quiet, nice evening out as a couple or two couples, I'd recommend you try Aldo's.

    When we call to make a reservation over the phone, the guy said it's very romantic and privacy on every section of restaurant. Will tables were very close together. The lady sitting next to us was very loud and she had too much wine. Not a kid friendly, no kids menu. The food was average. The inside of the restaurant has some old house odor when you come in.

    My husband and I went there for his birthday. I had made reservations and we were seated immediately, had cocktails and ordered within 10 minutes. Waiter was very attentive but not overly intrusive. Food was delivered quickly and we were checked on without being annoyed. Because I had made note of his birthday when reserving, they brought out a nice dessert and sang to us after dinner without me even mentioning it. That was nice. We had a great meal, drinks, and service for less than $100. We will go back. Excellent experience! I recommend.

    I have been here several times for business lunches & dinner. Unlike most restaurants, it is easy to have a conversation here. The menu is sufficiently varied to neet most dietary preferences or restrictons. Service is always impeccable. On this occasion, i ordered salmon. It is difficult to cook correctly and was overdone, but still edible. I requested vegetables rather than the starch and was upcharged $4, but got broccolini & baby carrots, so was pleased.

    We ordered the clams as an appetizer and they were just absolutely delicious. I highly recommend them as an appetizer. For entres, we had spaghetti bolognese and pollo gorgonzola. They were both outstanding, however the pollo gorgonzola was the best dish of the night and one that I will return for. The service was excellent and the ambiance was romantic. This is definitely some place that you want to take that special someone to.

    Tree secluded in center of busy city area, provided a very comfortable/peaceful restaurant setting. Italian menu, with a decent selection. Though advertised as Tuscan-styled; seemed to my wife and I, to lean more toward southern Italy. All food was prepared well and tasted excellent. Wait staff was very attentive to our needs.
