Aldo's has been one of my favorite upscale restaurants since I first went there in the late 1980's. I still love the place. The food and service is excellent. Great place for a nice dinner date.

I always love Aldo's. We had a nice little Valentine's lunch today. We stated with the course salad, which wad served with a lovely pesto reduction. My salmon was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. My husband had pollo Romano, which he enjoyed very much. The penne pasta on the side was cooked right, but the sauce wasn't exceptional. It tasted like jarred sauce. Overall, very happy with the meal.

Went to Aldos with work folks while visiting San Antonio. Great food, ambience and service.
My only complaint is that this is closer to $$$ than $$ as listed on google search results so the bill exceeded my per diem.

Great service and food. By 7pm and dessert, the waiter so too busy to service us quickly. There were 10-15 minute waits between dessert, coffee refills and the check. Annoying but not so much so as to ruin the evening.

We dined here for the first time during restaurant week. It was a bit of a bumpy start as our table was not ready (the restaurant was about 3/4 full) and as we were seated, we were served bread and olive oil with cracked pepper then no service for another 10 mins...we really needed a drink as there was a table of 10 next to us who were so incredibly loud that at one point I found myself literally shouting at the top of my voice to the waiter! Everyone on our side of the restaurant was visibly upset at how loud this table was. We had the prix fix restaurant week menu all of which was delicious, I had the salad (did have to send it back to get one with less dressing) and the Salmon on risotto which was absolutely fab! The creme brûlée and tiramisu were fab! I will try this restaurant again and hopefully not have the extremely loud guests next to us!

Cozy spot off the main road, sparkling clean with wonderful views. Warm and inviting interior. Amazing staff, attentive in every way, wide variety of delicious menu options. Attractive wine list accompanied by high-end liquor options. I recommend the lasagne. The cheesecake is divine, perfect with coffee after dinner. Perfect for date night, will certainly do again.

Had high expectations based on referral from friends and reviews-- our experience didn't match up. Service was poor to mediocre. Not sure who our waiter was. Seemed overly busy with large party in the next room and we were an afterthought. My wife ordered the Pollo Gorgonzola. Not sure what happened, but the cheese in the dish was NOT Gorgonzola--stringy with very mild flavor. When we asked the staff, the response was, "It is Gorgonzola." I expected more of an explanation. He took off (presumably for higher priority task) before we could follow up. I ordered the Scallopine Caprusso-- very good flavor, but strong on the garlic. Good for me, but some may find it strong.

Overall, an OK experience, but not worth the $$.

We (family party of 6) had a very nice Christmas Eve dinner at Aldo's. The food was a little pricey but very good. The waiter was pleasant and attentive, without being intrusive. The place was decorated nicely for the holidays. They were busy, but we didn't feel at all rushed or neglected. We have come here for Christmas Eve dinner many times and it has become a nice tradition.

Our family came to Aldo’s for a Christmas Eve dinner. We found Aldo’s to be one of the best Italian restaurants that we’ve been to. We are out of towners visiting San Antonio for the holiday. Aldo’s was found by reading reviews online which did not steer us wrong...The plates were deliciously prepared with a great presentation and service as well. The ambience is beautiful with the renovated house decor. Loved it! I highly recommend it.

Aldo's is always a favorite. The beautiful building and outdoor patio makes you feel like you are dining in a home. The lighting and décor is beautiful, the food consistently amazing, and the service beyond compare. Every visit you are made to feel special and the live piano music on Friday and Saturday just makes the ambience perfect. Jaime behind the bar is a favorite among all regulars and new guests, and all the servers hustle to make sure everything is just right. And of course Aldo is always a gracious and accommodating host. No other place like this in town.
