Our first time going to Aldo's. Fantastic meal, and Phillip, our server was the absolute best. Professional, passionate, and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. Look forward to trying one of the other 14 dishes I had my eye on.

As always, delightful. They were short staffed, but did a good job covering. I don’t think any establishment can be blamed for short staffing in this climate. Looking forward to returning.

Went there the day after my wife’s birthday. Pasquali, sorry if spelling is incorrect, was great and really took care of us. We went early, 4:45, and were one of the only people in there so not sure the reservation was required. Food portions were great and the food came out quick. Not the best Italian I have had, but probably top five, and that’s all along the east coast. They also really did up the dessert for her birthday which was nice. I would definitely go back.

I took my two young daughters to Aldo’s for a first “fancy” daddy date night. We had a fantastic time! We were seated right away (had a reservation), and our server Vivian was very friendly and prompt. She knew the menu very well and offered suggestions when I was trying to decide. I’m so glad she did, because the fillet was one of the best I’ve ever had! My girls enjoyed the entire experience! This is one of our family’s go-to special occasions places, because it never disappoints. We will look forward to the next time we go!!!

We dine at Aldo's frequently and we were disappointed that things seemed off this evening. The attention to detail was not there, and we felt rushed. Two of the dishes we ordered had sauces that were not flavorful. We were not offered fresh cracked pepper or fresh grated parm on salads or meals.

Waiter wastn't very attentive had to wait for our drinks to be refilled and for the food. Also my wife's penne Mediterranean did not come with any pine nuts also she added chicken and it only had a couple pieces of chicken in it.

We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Our server was was outstanding. At the end of the meal I made what I intended as a casual comment that my wife's entree was dry and that the chef might want to know. They deleted the charge for that item. We were impressede at their concern for quality.

We had an amazing meal yet again at Aldo’s. Everything from the calamari and focaccia bread to the salads and main courses (steak, salmon, shrimp) were cooked to perfection. Joshua, our server, was attentive and friendly. We love eating at Aldo’s and celebrating special occasions there.

Aldo's is consistently top notch, and our recent visit was no different. Food, drinks and service were all outstanding. Perhaps the best Chilean Sea Bass I've had (and I eat a lot of it). Really enjoyable night.
