This was our first visit to Aldos for dinner. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was excellent. We dined on a Saturday evening and really enjoyed the live piano player. The food was delicious and arrived promptly even though the restaurant was very busy. We will be back!

This is a long time favorite of ours. We had not been there in a while but it was as good as we remembered. The entrees were enjoyed by all (2 were specials and 2 from the menu), and the desserts were devine!! It can be a bit noisy as it is small and tables are close together but that did not dampen our evening.

A long time Virginia Beach restaurant, Aldo’s is consistent in providing an excellent dining experience. Food is first rate and service is top notch.

The suggested gratuity on the bill seems a bit tacky for this establishment, especially since the ridiculous Virginia Beach restaurant tax is figured into the total on which gratuity suggestions are based.

Decent meal. I read a review saying it felt like they spent $25 too much, and I understand why. I've had better Italian, but I'll give them another shot...

We have been here quite a few times and never disappointed. We ordered entrees from the Easter special menu, and both entrees were done to perfection. Had a couple cocktails that were terrific. Our waitress was attentive and super friendly. It could not have been a more perfect outing for Easter.

I had not been to Aldo's in a least five years as rarely in VA Beach. But we found ourselves coming to VA Beach last Sunday afternoon.

Still a great place. We had a 6 pm reservation and the restaurant was already filling up. By the time we finished the restaurant was jammed.

I had the Bruchetta for appetizer and lamb chops for entrée. mmmm good.

As a frequent Italian meal diner, I was disappointed by Aldos. We made a reservation far in advance and then were stuck in a small, two seater table when other much better tables were available. Before I could even open the menu, our waiter asked me if I wanted focaccia bread. I said of course, that sounds great! And then, once I opened the menu, I realized this was an appetizer and that we would be charged. Low blow.

For other appetizers and food, it was just average. If you know your Italian food, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for just casual Italian food, then Aldo's is fine. There is nothing special about this place and we were very disappointed because of the rave reviews.

Everything at Aldo's was great from entering to leaving. We were greeted at the door and led to our table immediately. The waiter quickly took our drink orders and subsequently the dinner orders. All four of us in our party thoroughly enjoyed the food. The restaurant was clean and had an open and friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The meal was superb. I was so excited to know there were half portions (I didn't see advertised) so I was able to make room for dessert, which was over the top.

The waiter was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions, however, I did feel a little rushed.

Wonderful and attentive service. Pricey dinner for two with cocktails was over $150. Food was delicious! We had meatball and marinera appetizer, wild mushroom ravioli with lump crab meat, linguini with clam sauce, and cheesecake. The dessert was presented beautifully but the taste was lackluster.

Our son was home from college on Spring Break and asked for an Aldo's night! It is his favorite restaurant, and we always have a great meal there. It is a bit pricey, but totally worth it. Our waiter Bernard is always a delight, and a great addition to a wonderful dining experience!

We will return soon, and we look forward to another great dining experience!
