Diner Reviews
  • "Food and service was Terrific............however upon entering the restaurant the Host or Matri'D was EXTREMELY UNFRIENDLY and gave us the impression that if we were not regulars what are you doing here. We have been to this restaurant since it opened 26 years ago. VERY VERY POOR IMPRESSION!!!!!!!!!!!"

  • "Really outstanding. The place on Saturday night was jumping, packed with a bunch of prom night students and many others. Could not have been better, though. Lovely spot, piano player was very good, terrific food, first rate service. Owners and managers were both friendly and extremely capable. We really enjoyed our dinner!"

  • "As always, our appetizers, entrees, and desserts were delicious. We can always depend on Aldo's for a superbly prepared meal. The ambience is warm and inviting and conducive to conversation without being either too quiet or excessively noisy. Our server the other night was Amanda, who was an absolute delight!"

  • "I lived here in 89-91, pretty sure Aldo's was brand new in there. I return every time I'm in town. It's still the best Alfredo I've ever had (and just heard of crab Alfredo which I sooooo want to try), and the stuffed veal chop I had was fantastic! I can't wait to go back. Aldo knows!"

  • "No valet, but proper attire required (there were people with flip flops and yoga pants). Maitre de was rude, no eye contact. Looked like an old Olive Garden. Food was overpriced. Pasta (what there was of it, way too much sauce) was overcooked. My friends lasagna looked like Food Lion my essentials brand didn't taste as good. Very small portion. The carpacio had a blueberry vinaigrette that was too sweet overpowered the beef. The bread was old very very chewy. The dessert tasted store bought, not homemade. Where was the ambience? The dessert case made it look like a deli. a dessert cart would be more fitting with the "attitude" of the restaurant. Not very special for my friends birthday celebration."

  • "We went w/ our family - 6 total & received excellent service & well-developed entrees. The menu allowed for,youngsters to find food they enjoyed & the adult entrees showed innovation & were well-prepared. Our waiter was attentive & entrees were served hot. The veal dishes were quite enjoyable. We would definitely return."

It consistently offers good food, a wonderful, energetic, atmosphere and the best wait staff in the area. All of this can be credited to the hard work of Debbie Kassir and Jim Farsi, and their entire staff. Jim and Lisa"

  • "My book club met on a Sunday evening around 6:30 to have dinner and of course discuss our latest book. We were immediately seated at a table in the back. Our waiter was very good, although some did complain that he said the specials a little too quickly. He was an expert on the wine list and suggested a very nice wine. The food was very good, came out in a timely manner and our group was able to get "just right" portions. We were able to have separate bills without any hassle, which is always a plus. We will definitely go back."

My wife had the Mediterranean Penne and our daughter had Romanelli Allla Vodka. All dishes were incredible!!! Try the lemon cherry mojito. This drink is very unique. Chris our waiter was very attentive but not overbearing. Knowing it was our daughters birthday, he had the piano player belt out HappyB-Day. You have to try Aldo's!"

The noise level was very energetic when we were there on the Saturday night after Valentine's Day because the restaurant was packed, which says a lot. People really love it. Our waiter was quite busy with many tables but was very attentive to our needs/wants."

  • "My wife and I went to Aldos for our anniversary and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and our waiter Christopher took great care of us. Recommend a reservation because the place fills up. The menu has a wide variety of choices, and if you don't quite see what you want, they are great about customizing your meal to your liking. The only thing missing on the appetizer list is caprese, but there were other delicious choices. Our pastas was perfectly done. When we told Christopher that it was our anniversary, he brought us out a specially decorated dessert plate after dinner. The only thing to pick on is the cold draft if you sit along the window in the front. The insulation isn't that great. Otherwise highly recommended!"

He listened to our questions and made excellent wine recommendations. The waiter was attentive and explained the specials with enticing details. Our food was served quickly and each of us enjoyed our entrees. We were offered dessert and again, great descriptions were offered. All in all, we had a great time and a great meal!"

  • "My husband and another couple went here for a restaurant week dinner. We asked to be seated in the back room which is quieter and not as crowded as the front section. We all had the restaurant week special - three of us had the Ceasar salad and my husband had calimari. For dinner two of us had salmon, one had pasta with gorgonzola sauce and the other had butternut squash ravioli. For dessert three of us had chocolate cheesecake and the other had the napoleon. All of enjoyed our dinner. The dish of ravioli was an artistic delight. The cheesecake was really chocolaty. A good evening.."

  • "It's been a very long time since we last came here. Everything was great: calamari, Caesar salad, butternut squash tortellini and salmon. The focaccia bread was to die for and there were huge servings of Napoleans. Our waiter, Stephen was very nice. However, the host didn't bother to greet us - didn't even look at us - VERY RUDE."
