This is the 2nd time we were
This is the 2nd time we were seated in the middle area, not good at all, when the door opens you get a cold draft of wind/air on you. I had to wear a light coat the entire dinner time. Servers kept hitting the chair I was sitting in because it was so tight. This seating arrangement is very poor. If this continues, it would cause me not to come back to this resturant. The food that was ordered was not delivered all at the same time. In fact they delivered one meal and then came and took it away because it was the wrong order. This was the 3rd time we have been to this resturant. 1. very good, 2, good, 3 poor - based all on service and seating.

They had three singers lined
They had three singers lined up for the night. We saw the first performer who was great. He sang a lot of Dean Martin and Tony Bennett songs. A Cher performer was next and I can't recall the last performer. The food is very fresh and the entrees come with soup or salad, which is usually an additional fee. There was a $25.00 bottle of select wines special that night.

It was our first visit. Food and service were great. Tight/crowded seating.
Owner talks to you if he knows you. Ask for perimeter seating for best overall experience.

We really enjoyed our first
We really enjoyed our first visit to Aliano's ! The food was delicious, they had outdoor seating (although it was a bit too nippy that night ), the atmosphere was nice, there was live music in the bar, and they had this fabulous magician who went from table to table entertaining ! We highly recommend this restaurant !

Quality Food - OK Service
We were there for Mother's Day dinner with a large group. Seated promptly, however service was somewhat slow as the restaurant was packed. It wasn't unbearable, but definitely noticeable as our server constantly was apologizing. Not a huge deal though, I've had much worse. On the bright side, the food was terrific. The calamari and octopus were very tasty and the pasta entrees superb. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. We also enjoyed the lemon sorbet for dessert. Outside of the few service glitches, a very pleasant experience. We will eat here again.

Good Food, Service, Ambience
We ate lunch recently at Aliano's Ristorante, in downtown Batavia, IL. We were seated promptly in the open and attractive dining room, and our friendly and informative waiter brought us the menus, explained the specials, answered questions, and checked back with us throughout the meal. The main course--some had pasta, some sandwiches--was delicious and well-prepared, and we gave into temptation and ordered from their interesting dessert menu. We did not order alcoholic drinks, but the wine list seemed quite varied. Altogether a well-spent two hours, with good food that was well served in a pleasant and inviting atmosphere.

Good Italian Food
Good food, nice ambience. A little noisy but we could converse. Excellent lemon-tini and wine.

Just discovered this wonderful restaurant. Been there twice now in 2 weeks. We can't wait to bring some of our friends.

Great little Italian Restaurant
Can dress casual to dressy. Prices are fair and you can't go wrong with the daily specials. Have even been known to have wine specials! They also have Sunday Brunch but haven't tried it yet. Have always eaten inside but they have a small patio for dining outdoors. The river is across the street. Nice place to take a romantic walk after dinner!

Great food and reasonable
This was the 2nd time we've been to Aliano's since its opened. Both times we've been thoroughly impressed. Food, drinks, and service are all top notch. The fried calamari is outstanding, best around. We will definitely be back!!

Afternoon Lunch with Bobbie
My wife says to mention our great server Paula right off , she was great. She recommended a moderately price Merlot which we ordered and found to go great with our food. We had a late lunch on a sunny Tuesday and sat outside enjoying the weather as well as the food. Pasta and sauces made fresh, and my octopus was delivered that morning. . My stuffed gnocchi, with mushrooms, was a delight with a wonderful rich spicy arabiatta sauce. . Bobbie's cheese ravioli with marinara were soft yellow pillows of delight. The mozzarella cheese sticks we had as an appetizer were freshly made lightly breaded yummy treats.. It's a very good place with great service and we will be back many time.

Good dining experience
I was pleased with my experience at Aliano's. The food was great and the server was very friendly and helpful.

While there are many Italian restaurants in the western suburbs, Alianos has a bit of a different flair. It's got a special something with their entrees and their sauces, I can't accurately describe it, you would need to experience it to understand. It's a treat to eat at Alianos with a different taste than the other known Italian restaurants. Highly recommend it!

Open Table failure, handled well
I made my reservation through Open Table, and I received an Open Table reminder 24 hours before, but my reservation didn't show up on Open Table's system at the maitre d's station. The owner, who was greeting and seating patrons, quickly reconfigured a couple tables and made room for the 6 of us with no wait. Sounds like Open Table needs to do a little system debugging.

I had ordered off the menu
I had ordered off the menu because my server told me I could not order the buffet with a coupon. I don't see the difference myself. Remember, the upcoming Pig Roast don't plan to use a coupon. I will return tho.

Pig roast was great
I mistakenly made reservation for pig roast. Very nice about cleaifying we didn't need it for that. Food was excellent . Went into bar after pig roast(outside) went with old friends. Server ,Jay,was very friendly. The couple of dishes I did see looked very appealing. I'd definitely go back to try the food inside. If anything like the pig roast it will not dissatisfy.

Better every time
It seems every time we go in, it gets better. The staff is very friendly and are very willing to make suggestions (that are good). We like taking friends and they all enjoy it. Highly recommend.

Great Local Place
We went for a special night out with visiting relatives and had a positive experience. The service was attentive but not rushed and offered helpful suggestions. The food was good and we all loved the magician! I think this is a great local place with special touches that make for a nice evening out.

We had a group of 5 for Thanksgiving dinner, the service was great and the food was terrific. The people in the group said that they can't wait to return. We all felt we were at a friends home for dinner.

Nice place for an occasional
Nice place for an occasional night out; for a nicer, more refined dining experience. Service was excellent, although it wasn't busy. Already made another reservation.
