My companion and I both had filets with cognac peppercorn sauce. This is what we both generally order here. Terrific per usual.
Waitress was new but very attentive and conscientious. (All of Aldo’s waitstaff have been excellent.)
Fourth time visiting. I’ll be back.

The most delicious Italian food in the area. Our new favorite place to eat. Great service. They had a talented piano player on Saturday night. Every thing about this place is terrific. It was worth the hour drive to get there!!

28 years ago my wife and I went on our first date together ... Aldos was wonderful then and now 28 years later it was even more wonderful. Our waiter, Michael, was very attentive and excellent ... could have had none better. Thank you for a wonderful meal and experience. We always celebrate our anniversary and my wife’s birthday at Aldo’s and will continue to do so.

This was well above what we expected from a Virginia Beach Main Street restaurant. The food was great, the wait staff is very professional, and our check didn't come out to half as much as what we planned on spending for the night.

Excellent lobster dish - husband gets it every time we go! Was very pleased that the kichen could accommodate switching sauces for a pasta special - appreciated their flexibility. Our waiter Lorenzo was pleasant and accommodating, though not as personable as the other waiter we typically have (can’t remember his name). Overall, excellent meal as usual :)

Nice, good sized Italian serving a fairly good but not exhaustive menu. We asked for veal saltimbocco even though it was not on the menu and it was great. Pizza and pastas were excellent. Shrimp Gorgonzola was nice, shrimp were big and fresh. Try and avoid the tables in front of open kitchen if you don’t want to hear the clanging of dishes. Nice ambiance. Would return.

Overall first experience was good. Dishes prepared and seasoned well. The staff is extra accommodating. May come back for a second try. Overall good/fair experience. Nothing stood out in mind to want to go back right away. Limited selection of creativity when it comes to authentic Italian dishes. Very fresh but very common type dishes.

Lunch special (rigatoni with parmesan cream sauce) was outstanding. Focaccia bread was to die for. Could have eaten the whole thing. Chocolate cream cheese cake was the best. Even the expresso was great.

Always worth the 1.5 hour drive each way in tidewater traffic for a great dining event.
We did Valentines a day early to avoid the crowds and our timing was perfect.
Service very good and food outstanding. Orders prepared well and served timely but
not rushed or unduly delayed.

As always, our favorite restaurant in Hampton Roads for a romantic night out with my wife of 27 years!! Veal, wine, and dessert were excellent, but I am sad to say that the Calamari appetizer was chewy and fishy tasting. I will not order that again, but that will not sway our review of Aldo’s. We will return!

We were there for lunch celebrating my aunt's birthday. Our experience could not have been more perfect! Our server, Jennifer took such good care of us--checking on us, continually refilling our drinks, delivering the food in a timely manner, bringing us extra plates, clearing empty dishes, and asking us several times if we needed anything else; we had to wonder how she had time for any other tables. :-D In addition to our server, other staff stopped by our table, making us feel so welcome. The food was absolutely delicious, too! As I already mentioned, a perfect experience!!
