Aldo's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Service was outstanding. Great wine selection and mixed drink s🍸. I ordered the linguine with clams, it was delicious 😋. I know the server understands fine dining by adding a bowl for the clam shells. (Many restaurants have no idea). Great job Aldo’s.
We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary st Aldos with friends. Always feels so special to go there. Just the right amount of attention. And the food never disappoints. Lollipop lamb chops are so tasty with rosemary honey and Dijon. Focaccia bread and olive oil for starters. A tradition that is 29 years strong.
Lobster pasta was exceptional, as was the Flounder; both were specials for the evening. Joe, our server, was knowledgeable and very attentive. Deserts were both mouth -watering and perfect as after dinner choices. Always our favorite for any dining experience.
Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable,courteous and attentive. He talked with us and made us feel special. The veal chop was perfect, veal masala yummy,flounder special prepared excellent and lobster special the same. We love this restaurant and make it a treat whenever we can.
We’ve enjoyed Aldo’s since it opened - good Italian/American cuisine, well prepared, skilled, knowledgeable servers, and an attractive venue despite it’s strip mall setting.
Suggested gratuities, oddly enough, include the rather high Virginia Beach restaurant tax when calculated. A bit of a cheap shot for an upscale establishment.
We were stationed in Virginia beach for 6 years and have been going to Aldo's since2001
the food is always consistently great , my family owns a Italian restaurant at the Jersey shore .
Our waiter was fantastic the atmosphere was great and the food was outstanding as usual
The ambiance and atmosphere provided for a lovely evening. The "award winning" Calamari definitely wouldn't have won any awards with my husband or me, and we more than likely will not order it again. The calamari was very tough and rubbery. The signature lamb chops were ordered medium and they were definitely medium rare, tough, very fatty, difficult to cut and chew, and not the experience we were hoping to have. Will not order those again either. The wine choices were very nice and the saxophone player did a great job. Our waiter was very attentive, pleasant and helped offset the quality of the food.
In the middle of our waiter giving us the specials, he stopped saying he'd be right back. We watched him bring water, bread and menus to two women who had just sat down. ( we never received that welcome). He came back again, and with a minute he left us again. He came out with dinners for another table. ( our food was never delivered by our waiter). The food arrived, mine was tasty however others asked for veggies to be well done, dad asked for hot pepper - all of which we never received. Our waiter never came back to the table until he delivered the check. When I told him about his performance, he dismissed us saying he was called to deliver hot food. When I told him he left us the first time to welcome two women to a table, he said oh well.....
It's been a couple of years since my wife and I last dined at Aldo's, but the food and service still remain outstanding. We came in to celebrate an anniversary and it happened to be during restaurant week, so we enjoyed a great meal at a very good price. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly as was the grilled halibut. We are not going to wait as long before we return.
I had veal and it was the best I have ever had !! I have had veal all over the world to include at least 4 different places in Italy. The veal, was by far, the best I have ever had !! The calamari was also very very very good.!!!
This was my first trip to Aldo’s, but it will not be the last !!!!!!!!!!
Kicking myself for not trying Aldo’s a lot sooner !!!
