Food was wonderful as always. Service was excellent as well. The atmosphere is so calm and appealing for a group lunch. Best of all the cheesecake is to die for!

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.

We were overnight in the northern reaches of S. A. and wanted a decent meal. Most of the places up there are fast food franchises, but Aldo's was a nice find - 1 mile from our hotel. Good service, polite mgt and the food was excellent.
I had the escargot to start - nice, plump and with a proper butter. garlic, parsley sauce. For mains we had the veal piccata and the veal chop. The scallopini was very tender and the cop was one of the best I've had in USA.

I had not been to Aldo's in ten years, and was pleased to find the food much better than I remembered. Best Tiramisu I've found, including that in Italy. Tasty food, prepared just right. Large servings guarantee you'll take home a doggy bag. Friendly, helpful waiter, just the right amount of helpfulness. Everyone in our party was impressed. I won't wait ten years till my next visit. Deserves a place among San Antonio's many top-notch Italian restaurants.
