Our first visit to Aldo's was exceptional. The food, service and atmosphere were wonderful! We will definitely be back!
Excellent food with good choice. but service was less than excellent
We had a delightful dinner and dining experience. We will return! The wine list didn't live up to the preformed expectations from reading reviews: too many ridiculously priced big names (who buys these?), they didn't have the Fiano from Campania in stock, nor the Pinot Grigio we requested. Being an Italian restaurant of some repute, they need some more moderate Italian reds and whites that they can recommend because those wines are readily available - I know from personal experience. We ended up with a Pinot Gris from Oregon which was very good, but not Italian!
I took my husband here for his birthday and he loved it. The valet parking was wonderful and the service was amazing. It was a wonderful night.
Celebrating a wedding anniversary we made plans to dine at this Baltimore gem. Greeted by Margaret at the entrance we were made to feel immediately part of the family which set the tone for the rest of the evening. Enjoying a pre dinner drink at the bar with regulars the bar has an inclusive and comforting old world feel. Loved it. Seated at a cozy, elegant, and quiet table we were very impressed with the decor and the ambiance. Our waiter David picked right up where Margaret left off covering the specials for the evening and knowledgeably helping us pick a very nice bottle of wine. We enthusiastically recommend the eggplant parmigiana appetizer which is as good as we have ever had. The pasta trio is a very nice way to sample the restaurants homemade pastas which we thoroughly enjoyed and plan to come back for as an entree. The veal chop and the veal Francese were another win for Aldo's. With no room to taste the dessert offerings we were pleased to be offered a glass of Aldo's homemade crema di limoncello which was really good and new to us. Deserving of the five stars we and others have given it this is a very fine restaurant, with great staff, great food and where we will certainly return.
Only issue when we arrived and advised hostess we had a Open Table reservation for 2, she informed us they didn’t accept reservations for only 2. Fortunately there was a table available. Otherwise it could have been a long wait. Should be noted at Open Table.
Aldo’s was amazing—everything went perfectly from the timing, to the waitstaff, it was just great.
Real quality Italian food. Top notch, caring service. Great experience.
The menu notes fresh clams however I was served canned clams. I came here for for fresh and live clams used in Linguine in Clams, however I was served a dish where the meal was on par with Olive Garden. Unless the chef cooked and unshelled over 100 cockles before reintroducing them into the pasta this was definitely canned.
Perfect as always
Delicious and delightful old fashioned Southern Italian. The pastas, including gluten free, were outstanding. Eggplant Parmigiano was superb. It is a restaurant that is splendid for Family dining which you should add to your list! Can hardly wait to go back!
Number 1 Italian restaurant in the Mid-Atlantic area. My wife had the Ossobuco and I had the Tuscan grilled veal chop. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The prices may seem high, but once you taste the food you will be glad you came. The waiters are excellent. They are very knowledgeable about the wines.
Very nice, intimate atmosphere. Took my girlfriend here for a Valentine's Day date. We ordered the Chicken Marsala, Rigatoni alla Vodka, flourless chocolate cake, and glasses of wine. Every bite we took, down to the bread and olive oil was simply to die for. My only point of contention was that we were seated away from the main seating area which had open tables and were brought to the back of the second floor right next to an eyesore of an open storage closet/walkway. Aside from that hiccup, the waiters were friendly and my date went amazingly well. I will be coming again.
The food was excellent, and was served (suspiciously) quickly. My date ordered the lobster risotto, which she absolutely loved. I had the pasta with vodka sauce, which was also really good. Dessert on the other hand was a little lackluster, the tiramisu being a little too chocolatey for my taste, and the chocolate mouse was simply decadent to a fault.
The restaurant is dated as far as the decor. The service and the attentiveness was excellent. We ordered the eggplant tower and the asparagus soup, both really good. My husband who is also an executive chef commented that the chicken in the chicken Marsala had no seasoning not even salt & pepper. He said the Parmesan rissotto did not have enough Parmesan. It was really plain risotto. My filet mignon was cooked too done for me especially because i had asked for medium rare. I sent my steak back 2x, and each time the steak was medium well. The waiter said that the chef said "that's his version of medium rare because the steak is thin". My husband said that's unprofessional and not true. He said you cook it either medium rare or you don't and it had nothing to do with how thin the steak is. If it's thin, then you don't cook it too long. I was disappointed because I really wanted the foie gras with the truffled mushroom sauce that came with the steak. That's the only reason why I chose this restaurant for our Valentines Day dinner. I ordered something else which was the linguine and clams along with the arugula salad. It was good but I have had better. I'm not overwhelmed to come back.
The ambiance was amazing and so so nice. It was quite and you are treated like royalty. The food was very good and they have a great wine selection as well.
Even though we had a reservation, we waited for 25mins or more to be seated.
Bad experience, food was average and service was poor.
Would never go back
Wonderful food and service!
Overall a great expierence. The whole staff from the busboy to our server was attentive to our needs. Great atmosphere amd great food.
Service was terrible. It was Valentine’s Day so no necessarily the best time to judge a restaurant but I was pretty disappointed. some of the food was pretty good, the wine was ok and the service was fair at best. And there was a 20% gratuity added to the check. As a former server, I can appreciate this gesture by management, however I feel that the service suffered because of the guaranteed tip. I’d like to assume it’s not always so poor. For $260, I expected a whole lot more quality for 2 people. Do not waste your money.
A great experience once again. This time, our anniversary dinner. The veal dishes were perfect!
The service was great and the food was wonderful .
Amazing food! Amazing service! Thank you!!
First time at Aldo’s- love the atmosphere, service was impeccable and food outstanding. Had the escargot, spinach salad and bronzini fish special. Celebrated with my niece for her BDAY. Gotta love Little Italy! I’ll be back with my hubby soon!
ES-CAR-GOT....UH-MAZING!!! Saw their description on the menu and was so excited! It did not disappoint! Service was excellent and well accommodating. Will definitely visit again the next time I’m in Baltimore!
Fantastic from start to finish
a couple of false starts w/ a long valet wait, and an initially lost reservation. once seated, the rest of the experience was superb. easily the best shrimp scampi appetizer i've tried, and an amazing lobster tail fettuccine that was a definite highlight. my date is an exacting tiramisu aficionado and gave aldo's offering an A-, which is the best rating i've seen her give in over a decade. a good dining atmosphere and engaging, knowledgeable service. a pricey night out, but you do get what you pay for; i wasn't disappointed.
Went for Baltimore Restaurant Week 2018 with wife and had a good time. A nice relaxed atmosphere with good food and pleasant service. We added the additional pasta course and really enjoyed it. Would have liked to have a few more options from main menu as part of the RW tasting selections, but overall a solid experience.
Food was ok, however the worst service possible!! Our server was in touch with us for 10-15 min, after that he disappear! Never ask if we need anything else, never ask if the food was ok...” typical questions”. We start to ask the busboy and different waiters in the restaurant to help us with our needs! We ask the busboy for a cappuccino and espresso. We decide to leave the restaurant and on our way out to pay the winter show up and try to give us the espresso and cappuccino! My tip was “the worst service ever”!
We talk with the owner too, hope he fix the problem!
Spectacular as usual!! Pork chop was brined and tasty. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Love this place.
Aldo’s is now a new favorite restaurant for me. Everything was wonderful. The service was excellent. The food was delicious and the ambience was perfect. I cannot wait to go back.
excellent service and food
Very relaxing Sunday dinner. We chose to dine at the bar. Restaurant seating is also extremely special. Service was stupendous; food from appetizers through to dessert was delectable. Pasta, fish, chicken all cooked perfectly and served at ideal temperature. Eggplant appetizer and Caesar salad memorable.
We came to Aldo's so many times, and love it every time!
Aldos is always an enjoyable experience. The food is exceptional and staff is very attentive.
We had a great dinner with superb service. Cocktails were expertly prepared with generous but not over-done pours. Food was fresh and prepared with care and everyone happy and genuine about their attention to our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Aldo's may well be one of the best Italian restaurants I've visited in Baltimore, standing shoulder to shoulder with La Scala, Cinghiale and Sotto Sopra. A top-notch dining experience, with excellent service from beginning to end. Diners were without complaint. Would certainly go back!
Aldo's was fabulous. Went during Restaurant Week. You can't beat the deal for 3 course dinner at a 5 star restaurant. Fresh ingredients, attentive wait staff, terrific wine list. It's my favorite place in Little Italy for fine dining.
Dinner at Aldo’s is always a special experience. Food and service was outstanding. Can’t wait for the next restaurant week to go back!
