    We went there for our anniversary and it did not disappoint! Everyone was very courteous and kind, wishing us a happy anniversary! We made reservations and were seated right away. Our waiter was superb, always checking on us and not missing one detail. We had foccacia bread which was warm and tasty. We chose their she crab soup and glad we did. Every spoonful was a joy and filled with chunk crab meat. Our main course was Feticcini Alfredo with shrimp and linguine with clam sauce. They were delicious and could have been pictures on a magazine cover. They have an impressive list of desserts. We chose Key Lime Pie and Creme Broulee. Both were delectible. The piano in the background made it a very special occasion. They have an amazing menu with daily specials. It's best to make reservations as they are always busy.

    We had the most delicious Easter dinner starting with the Burrata ball appetizer and freshly baked bread! The Chicken Marsala was the best I have ever had and the Fettuccine Alfredo was so delicious!! We shared three desserts; Coconut cake, Chocolate Ganache cake and Crème Brûlée cheesecake were excellent!!! Courtney our server was wonderful and very attentive. This is now our favorite restaurant in Virginia Beach!!! 🤗❤️

Can't say enough about the food presentation and the flavor was outstanding. The chef and his team did an excellent job. Thank you for making our Easter brunch memorable.

    Everything was Awesome! Our waiter Ryan was outstanding, He helped pick some great menu items and beverages. Having been to Aldos three times in the past month this was the best meal and service. In the past the service has not been the best. But Ryan totally made up for that. His recommendations were on point. Had the lobster special and added the little purse pasta - AWESOME!

    Once again Aldo's was superb! Had dinner on a busy night for an early dinner but the food and service was great as always. I requested a booth due to a leg injury and was seated in a perfect spot as requested. Started off with the wonderful Focaccia bread and split the wedge salad. I highly recommend the famous Gorgonzola shrimp dish. Finished with the coconut cake for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions and definitely book a reservation due to dining spots fill up quickly.

    Very disappointing! Food took close to an hour to come out after ordering and then was lukewarm at best! Found out restaurant was completely booked for the night but only three cooks in the kitchen. Manager offered to heat our food up but by then our meals had been partially eaten; and again we’d already waited an hour. They did offer complimentary desserts but at that point we just wanted to leave and were unsure how much longer that would take. Waitress was very nice and apologetic and did the best she could under the circumstances. Management needs to do better!! This was a random Saturday evening and no special holiday. Won’t be high on our list to return any time soon.
