I have been going to Aldo's since the first year it opened & have enjoyed the venue for many different occasions. Yesterday's lunch was even more enjoyable as I took my new client & business partner for lunch. He has only lived in Va Beach for under two years & joined by another gentleman who works with me who hasn't been in 15 years. It was exactly what we needed for a working lunch and a time for reflection/conversation. Aldo's had so ambiance happening along w/ great food, service as just over the top across the board. I can see why they have been open for 30 Years & will be for another 30 years. Each & every time feels like a new experience as Aldo's glows w/ consistency.

Our waiter Bernard was OUTSTANDING as well as the staff with allowing me to bring in a specialty cake for my man's birthday. Also, the stuffed veal chops were delicious. I will be returning and thank you for the wonderful experience.

Aldo's is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious, the staff are personable, knowledgeable and professional. Atmosphere is very welcoming. I always recommend Aldo's. to people new to the area. I especially like that you can get half sizes salads and most pasta entrees can be ordered half the size. I like the option for the whole wheat penne to replace any pasta.

We visited because our grown children gave us a gift certificate to Aldo's. We were pleasantly surprised on how beautifully the restaurant was decorated with beautiful Venetian Masks. I loved it being that we own an original. The food was presented in an appetizing manner. The wine selection is enormous and relatively priced. You also have a choice to bring your own for a small fee. Overall the food was excellent. My wife had the Veil and was delicately cooked and tasty. I had the sea food platter on a bed of noodles. The mussels were delicate and sweet. Our water was very professional and not so - in your face. Overall, excellent restaurant.

We had a wonderful evening at Aldo's. The service was spot on even though Aldo's was very busy. The food is consistently excellent. Our party had three different appetizers and three different entrees and four different desserts. Each was superb. The wine list is extensive and covers the full range from very good to outstanding. Since we have been to Aldo's several times over the past three years, I can say they are consistently excellent.

We had a party of five for a lunch to celebrate my mother's 97th birthday. We were greeted warmly, assisted in every way, treated to a FABULOUS lunch, excellent service, and promises to return again very, very soon. Highly recommend Aldo's. We have NEVER been disappointed in bringing new friends or family members here to dine or celebrate. Enjoy!

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.
