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.

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.

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 !!!
Cheered,
Rex

As always the food and the service where outstanding. The time that we arrived was in the middle of the dinner rush so it was quite crowded making for a noisy room. The weather that evening was amazing an yet no one was being seated outside for dining. Our table was right next to the kitchen so that was noisy and busy and then add in the live music that was being played made the noise level even worse causing everyone to talk even louder so it was not the relaxed casual dining we have come to expect. Maybe they should have been seating people outside as well so that the inside rooms did not have to be so loud and crowed and then we may not have had to been seated in a less then desirable location which made our evening a little less enjoyable then it could have been. Table location and noise level aside everything was still great and I would highly recommend to anyone to go have dinner. Just maybe make sure to fill every table before putting guests so close to a busy kitchen.

Aldo's is always a class act. I normally love what we have, but the special Mediterrian bronzini fishwas sort of tasteless. Their calamari is always delicious and cooked to perfection. My husband loves the Shrimp Gorgonzola and can't help but order it every time. The service is impressive.

The ambiance was great and our server was wonderful. My husband ordered the lollipop lamb chops which were amazing. I ordered the halibut which was pretty dry and lacked flavor. We also ordered calamari and I found that too to be lacking in flavor. My husband also ordered an Old Fashioned cocktail which was 16.00! Way overpriced. We spent 145.00 not including a 30.00 tip we left. We ordered an appetizer, one alcoholic beverage each and two entrees. The food was good but not THAT good.
