Like you're a part if the family
Party of 8, 6pm res. We arrived an hour early, they let us in, we split a few bottles of wine and then around 6pm we ordered, everything arrived at the same time and was excellent. We dined, had coffee and they allowed our party to stay, relax and talk until 8:45pm. They were so accommodating and friendly. Since we spent such a long while in the restaurant and occupied a good bit of their table real estate, we gave our waiter a generous tip. When we squared up, the waiter came back to the table and said, "I think you have paid too much." And wanted to return some of the money. We told him that we truly appreciated their hospitality and his service and wanted to give a nice tip. We all received hugs. Highly recommend this restaurant.

For only having one person
For only having one person serving and waiting on all the tables, this was a fine restaurant. They did mess up our order though and of the two of us, one received something not even remotely close to the order. Food was delicious though!

The food here is alway excellent.
The food here is alway excellent. I had the branzino fish with a chickpea mash...excellent! There was a very large theater party being served when my party arrived, so service was a bit slow in the beginning. Once the theater group departed, then service was very good! Everyone in my party of five had a different entree and all commented that the meal was excellent!

Love this place
Went there for the pre-fixe lunch with a coworker and the food was fantastic, the best calamari and chicken parm I ever had. We we're able to eat in the garden, the waiter was attentive, and the crowd was reasonable. The wine was a little expensive but I would definitely come back anytime!

Mothers Day Brunch for 6.
Mothers Day Brunch for 6. Service was attentive and patient. We had a relaxed afternoon in a lovely garden.
Brunch meals allowed for a nice variety of options to appeal to all tastes. We were all happy with our meals and
will definitely return.

My family went for a birthday celebration and the atmosphere and staff were very friendly, especially telling us about the menu and answering any of our questions. We had appetizers and I recommend the grilled calamari and also the eggplant and grilled sausage were fabulous. My veal chop was cooked perfectly and I loved the sauce that came with it. The other members of my family also enjoyed the chicken parm, veal, and gnocchi. The food for the dollar we were spending was well below what I thought it was going to cost for the entire dinner. We will definatly being going back to Aleo in the near future

Mediterranean fare near Gramercy Pk
We were at this restaurant for a late dinner on a Monday.
We chose to be seated at the open patio in the back. It was a nice relaxed dinner. The service was very attentive. The food was nicely done. For entrees I had Yellowfin Tuna and my companion had Chicken Chermoula. We shared a chocolate lava cake with ice cream which was delicious. Nice place if you like Mediterranean food near Gramercy Park.

Charming and Delicious
Aleo is a real treasure in the Flatiron district, where finding a well run restaurant with excellent service and an innovative but reliable kitchen is a joy. The range of offerings ensures that everyone can find something they will enjoy, while being small enough to be managed efficiently. The staff is knowledgeable and the menu accommodates gluten allergies and other special diets are dealt with courteously upon request. The back garden is quiet and lovely and open to the sky if the weather is nice. You should definitely give this lovely place a try and I bet you'll make it a regular habit.

Romantic spot, good food
I liked Aleo. They have this naturally romantic tuscany feel to it and the Italian options are great. Any pasta dish will do and the waiters were really courteous. I will be going back.

I have eaten at Aleo quite a few times and have had them cater a house party. Everyone was pleased.

Bad a good time over good food.
In an area where there's five restaraunts on every block, it's tough to stand out. Not that aleo does particularly stand out but it's got pretty great Italian food, and I would recommend it to someone who is not looking for the eataly experience.

Tasteful Italian Eatery
The pasta was fresh made to order, hot and flavorful. My entire party enjoyed their meal, and wanted more to order. This is a great find for the price. The service was excellent. I was late for my reservation and the venue still treated me with respect and awesome customer service.

Npt only did we have a lovely prix fixe lunch with an amazing number of items to choose from, but we never felt rushed. HIghly recommend the root vegetable salad and the shrimp risotto. Service was fine and dandy. A good experience and I'll return.

We were seated quickly and
We were seated quickly and efficiently and my young children were well respected. The food was great and served within a good amount of time.
I did notice our waitress left our water glasses on the table when she poured the water. The water pitcher she poured the water from had ice cubes in it. Sometimes the ice cubes spilled out onto the table and my son. She apologized each time she did this.
It would be best if the water glass was removed from the table when pouring water from a pitch that contains ice cubes. Even cheap Chinese restaurants know this.
