Aiello's has become our favorite place to dine and visit with friends and family. The food is beyond fantastic, prices are reasonable, the staff are absolutely knowledgeable and professional, and the customers service far exceeded our expectations. Chef Joe and Mrs. Aiello are so welcoming they make you feel at home. They make you feel like family. Truly a phenomenal experience every time and certainly anticipate having more of the same for years to come.

Mothers Day dinner. The owners were fantastic. The food was hot and taste good. We ordered an appetizer and a dessert to find out they ran out. The pasta portions with the veal and chicken parmigiana were small. We ordered baked clams and received 5 small claims for $10. Their gravy is great. We will return, it was a nice experience.

We are East Coast Italians and this place is not. Food was not good. I sent back my artichoke appetizer because it tasted bad. They didn't ask if I wanted something else and didn't take it off the check. The people who gave this place good reviews clearly don't know good Italian food. The place was dirty too!

What a gem we found. Great homemade Italian food and friendly atmosphere. Three of us and each got a different entree - and everyone very happy with choices. Good wine list reasonably priced. Large portions and good prices. This will become a routine stop. Service also very good - treated like an old friend

I am only giving three stars, not because of the food, but because of the service. Food was great, service was lacking. We were seated at 6:45 p.m. It took 20 minutes to have a server come to our table to ask if we wanted drinks. Our drinks came and we ordered our food at around 7:15 p.m. We were finally served our food at 8:00 p.m., a 45-minute wait for pasta, which was unacceptable. We had been here before and loved it, but this second experience was disappointing.

We stumbled upon this place after watching the sunset at the nearby Hilton. It is in a strip mall so if you didn’t see the great reviews beforehand, you might not think much of it. As soon as walked in we knew we made a great decision. It smelled heavenly and had the perfect ambience - warmly lit, white tablecloths, wine glasses waiting at our table :-), and Frank Sinatra music playing in the background. The bread and oil were AMAZING. We had the Fettuccini with chicken and the meatballs and all were good. We ordered coffee and each got our own French press pot! Wish we lived closer because this would be a favorite stop for us. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful evening at Aiello’s. We misjudged how long it would take to drive from Prescott, so we arrived an hour early. They said no worries, and sat us immediately. We stayed so long we ended up being the last customer to leave. The food was AWESOM, the service couldn’t have been better, the Chief came out several times and talked with us, and they never rushed us to leave. It was such a fun evening and we will DEFINITELY return again & again.

I’ve only been here a few times, but each time I’ve been very impressed with the entire operation, from ambience of the establishment, the friendly professionalism of the staff and of course the quality of food. The owner makes frequent rounds of the restaurant visiting with every table - a very nice personal touch - and at the end of the meal you play a numbers game that might result in the entire meal being free. It’s a one in ninety chance, but I have seen someone win it... that’s a neat touch.
I don’t eat out very often, but I will definitely be back, and, have already recommended this wonderful place to friends, and to customers at my place of work.

I think this was the best Italian food I've had in I don't know how long. The owners...husband and wife were so NICE . The husband is the chef and he made it his business to come out every now and them to great each diner before they left. The wife assisted the servers and she also greeted all guest.

She was great at describing the dishes and asking what you like so that she could make suggestions. She was even the bartender. I can't say enough about Mr. and Mrs. Aiello. This is what great customer service and food should always be.

When I'm back in Phoenix I will DEFINITELY visit Aiello's.

First time visit to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was phenomenal! Wow! We were in love with all the food we ordered from the appetizers thru dessert. The flavors were all so savory and mouth watering! The customer service is very exceptional as well! Definitely left very satisfied and full as well. This will surely be a regular destination for us.
