Terrific as usual. The food is just consistently delicious - superb Italian. And the service is always fantastic too. All around a great evening, we visit whenever we are in town. ;)

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.
