The service was ok. I wanted a dessert off of the regular menu but they told me no I could only order does look from the Valentine’s Day menu. That was disappointing. We also asked for the crème brûlée but the waiter said it was out

I was disappointed that the day AFTER Valentine's Day, they were still featuring ONLY the Valentine's menu. They didn't have what I had seen online and it was disappointing and overly expensive. THREE scallops for $38.00?

It will be quite a while before I return.

My wife and I had dinner reservations for Valentine’s Day at Caffe Aldo; it was our first time there. The food was very good but that’s where the good stops. Our waiter Mario was stern and gloomy; it seemed he was more concerned with turning over our table than with providing us with a pleasant dining experience. He was taking our plates away before we were finished with our food; it was very annoying. Somehow in all Mario’s hurrying, we ended up not having knives for our main course. I can’t remember a time being so rushed to just finish eating my meal and payIng the bill. Even paying the bill was rushed. We weren’t finished with our drinks yet and he was pestering me for my credit card. We’ve had better service at most diners. By the way, if you like grated cheese with your meal, you may want to bring your own because Caffe Aldo rations the grated cheese (they seemed to be rationing the water as well)! It was very unprofessional and very disappointing.

One of our favorite restaurants. Our most recent dinner was on Valentines Day which in itself proposes challenges for a restaurant especially a well liked restaurant. The management of that evening was wonderful. We never felt rushed even though they were extremely busy. The menu was a special valentines day menu but there were plenty of choices with something for everyone. Their wine list is amazing and one of the best if not the best. choices were numerous and listed by grape, location and year choices for the same house.

We had a rare issue with our meals as a result of a runner switching our dishes. The manager corrected the issue and also took both of our meals off of our bill. It was very generous and showed that they expect their guests to have a wonderful uninterrupted dining experience.

This is a place that you need to try if you like Italian food.

Had an amazing time! Selected Cafe Aldo Lamberti for my Mother’s birthday & she truly enjoyed herself and so did my Family. The food and ambiance was great. Our host Abraham was so helpful, kind and has a great sense of humor. God bless him! Would highly recommend this restaurant to friends & family! Thank you!

I like this restaurant a lot. Including all the steak houses in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, Café Aldo Lamberti's is my favorite for Filet Oscar. Anything else I've gotten over time here has been excellent also. I couldn't recommend more.

recommended after a colleague's wife had her holiday party there.
great vibe, classy and friendly at the same time,
wait staff is amazing, they watch over bread, drinks, everything you might need,
and the menu choices are great, one of those rare places i wanted like 10 different dishes at once,
and our two dinners, drinks and dessert were outstanding,
and we will return shortly for more italian ecstasy !
bravo caffe aldo !

Outstanding service. Our server was able to provide an excellent overview of all the specials and gave terrific suggestions. The food was amazing (grilled langostino was a highlight.) I am never disappointed when I go to Aldo.

Perhaps the best fine dining venue in the region. It is an exciting place with a large crowd always enjoying themselves thoroughly. It is a beautiful space, the staff is terrific and the food, delicious. It is also a terrific value. We enjoyed a superb antipasto speciale di calamari e un altro speciale, il salmone ripieno di polpa di granchio, per i nostri antipasti. è stata un'altra serata spettacolare. That is, the calamari special appetizer and the entree special, salmone stuffed with crab meat, were spectacular.

We were disappointed. Our platters arrived before the appetizer. We were not served dipping oil or butter with our bread, and no one refilled our water. The meal was good but not outstanding. On other visits here we were pleased, so Saturday night was disappointing.
