    I had shrimp Gorgonzola appetizer, the butterfly veal chop stuffed with spinach and mozzarella cheese and crème brûlée cheese cake. My husband had flounder and coconut cake. All were excellent. Service was stellar. First class Italian restaurant.

    Dining at Aldo's is always an evening to look forward to; delicious food, warm and welcoming atmosphere, and a wait staff who can be relied upon to know the details of each food item, and who is attentive, but not overwhelming. Nicholas' service was outstanding; his wine service was excellent. The evening special, sauted flounder accompanied by asparagus was "melt-in-your-mouth tender and delicious. Our out-of-town guests at the table were amazed and impressed with the resturant, its food and the service.

    I thought the beet salad with goat cheese was excellent. Pasta was good but had too much sauce and the sauce was just on top. I prefer it mixed into the pasta.

    Busy and pleasantly 'noisy' with happy customers at 7ish on a Thursday. Friendly attention paid to us by several staff aside from our wonderful server Leslie. We ordered appetizers of foccacia and she-crab soup, both expertly seasoned and delicious. Entrees of lasagna and crab crakes over corn/asparagus were likewise top-notch. Demi-bottle of a fine Tuscan wine completed a memorable visit. Definitely will return.

    Aldos never disappoints. We have been there many times and my husband always orders the same thing, Veal Francaise. And he judges other Italian restaurants by how their Veal Francaise stacks up to Aldos. It's great that they have gluten free pasta available for me.

    Calamari was simply inedible. Waitress was okay, not hospitable at all. Food was mediocre not made in house. We hadn't been there in a long time and will most likely not return. Ambience and piano music were fabulous. So, maybe I would go back for a casual drink and pizza next time.

    My wife and I always have a great time at Aldo’s! We were seated right on time by a very friendly hostess. Our server Ben was outstanding! He answered our questions and was right on top of the service our entire meal. My wife loved her dinner, and the lobster pasta special that I had was honestly one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. Keep up the good work Aldo’s- we’ll be back very soon!!!
