Aldo’s has a good reputation but we had a disappointing experience last night. The food was mediocre at best and dry and poorly presented. The service was good but not exceptional like we’ve had in the past at Aldo’s. We were celebrating our golden anniversary with close friends and were embarrassed that we picked Aldo’s for this event.

My husband and I always go to Aldo’s for special occasions so we went for my Birthday the other night. It was wonderful, the food, and service was excellent. Our waitress, was so kind and lovely, I can’t remember her name but she was wonderful. The calamari is incredible, I also had the romanalli alla vodka. Just absolutely melts in your mouth!

Ash was our server and he was amazing. He helped us with our wine selection and was quite knowledgeable about the specials and the menu as a whole. He was friendly and attentive, and we will be requesting him at our next visit. The food was just perfect. We had the shrimp gorgonzola pasta and the veal scaloppini special and they were superb. I cannot wait for our next visit.

Still the best!
Because of COVId and being seniors we hadn’t been to Aldo’s in quite awhile. We took a 93 year old friend with us his first time. And Aldo’s lived up to our high praises. Ambience had been enhanced with some nice changes. Plenary of space between tables. Our server Jacob was pleasant and attentive. Food was outstanding from the halibut, to scampi and spaghetti. Best cappuccino in town. Key lime pie and coconut cream cake were outstanding. And always good to see Jim. You won’t be disappointed with Aldo’s.

Delicious meal with great service (thank you Lesley). We requested an outdoor table through open table and our request want granted. The outdoor area is a tent with and open side. The staff wore their masks and brought Parmesan in individual containers. The seasonal ravioli was delicious and my hubby enjoyed his steak. They even wrote happy anniversary on our dessert which was a sweet thing to do.

First time back after 20 years. I don’t know why we haven’t been back sooner. Friendly attentive service and absolutely delicious food. Stuffed veal chop melted in my mouth. My wife’s shrimp pasta dish in a vodka sauce didn’t disappoint either. We will be making the 40 minute trip back soon with the friends we ate there with 20 years ago.

My wife and I ate at Aldo’s again on Tuesday, November 3. Everything was fantastic once again. I had the veal, and it was both beautifully presented and wonderful tasting. This has quickly become one of our must visit restaurants when we are in Va Beach. Fabulous!

We have dined at Aldo's many times over the years. This visit was no different. Service was wonderful, the food was fantastic and they truly made you feel welcomed. Aldo's represents what most "higher end" restaurants say they provide, but Aldo's delivers from the moment you walk in to your meal to settling up the bill. Can't wait to return.

Our servers name is Chris. He seemed friendly perhaps a little overconfident as it seemed like he was very over seated? All the food was cold. And he missed our birthday request. very important no no!

Entree, wine, dessert, service - 12 stars!!! Only complaint is with the piano player it can get loud, so request a quiet table if you actually want to hear your date.
