    Calamari is the best ever. Pescatore is so delicious and the portion was just right. Courtney is so nice and really took cared of us. People if you have not been to Aldo’s please try it once and you’ll keep coming back.

    We dined at Aldo's to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were very pleased with the experience. We arrived at our reservation time and were immediately seated at our table which was near the live piano music as we requested. Our server James was fantastic! He offered menu and drink advice and served us at the relaxed tempo we prefer. Aldo's calamari appetizer is the Best in Virginia Beach and we enjoyed every bite. All rings and no tentacles lightly fried and served with a delicious marinara sauce. We also shared a Margarita Pizza that was perfectly cooked in the wood fired oven. I'll be dreaming about this perfect pizza until our next visit! Finally, we ended dinner with the Napoleon dessert that was absolutely divine. We highly recommend Aldo's because it's retained its charming atmosphere, excellent menu and outstanding service since we first dined here in 1988. Bon appetite!

    This place has changed so much. I'm not a fan of paying inflated prices for shelf stable food. Pasta should ve fresh, desserts should be made in house and not with canned fruit.

    We've been to Aldos several times, each occasion was excellent. Tonight was no exception. The two dinners were both wonderful. The Veal presentation was lovely. The flavors of the veal, and the separate pasta dish were great. We will definitely return to this establishment.

    Always a wonderful time at Aldo’s. The service is on point. Our waitress was quick, efficient and very friendly. Our food was delicious as well. Be sure to ask for a wine recommendation from Rob the sommelier. Great guy and always comes up with something special in the price range you give him.
