    Made the reservation for a Wednesday night about 10 days in advance and asked for a booth. We are four (average size adults) out for an evening celebrating mine and my husband's 47th wedding anniversary but were barely comfortable. It was one of the smaller booths across from the bar opposite the tables for two. With winter coats on the seats and plates and glasses on the table it certainly was a tight squeeze. As if we didn't have a reservation at all. We have been coming to Aldo's for more than twenty years and this was the first time we were very disappointed not only with where we were seated but with our meals as well. All four of us noticed a decline in the quality of the pasta, how the sauce was made, as well as the Tiramisu we had for dessert which consisted of mostly whipped cream. We discussed that going forward we'll be celebrating special occasions in one of the many other restaurants in Virginia Beach.

    Aldo’s is the FINEST Italian dining experience in Virginia Beach. You’ll get a carefully curated experience in all respects. Aldo’s is NOT a chain restaurant. The staff is professional, the food fabulous and the ambiance friendly and welcoming. Their signature Chicken Francese, Lamb Chops and Beet salad are superb.I recommend reservations because they are usually well attended at all seating times.

    We always love Aldo’s for a special date night. This evening was exceptional. Stacey was such a delight and provided excellent service. My husband and I both ordered from the specials menu (flounder and filet) and were pleased beyond our expectations. We always get the cheesecake special as well and the lemoncello-blueberry topped cheesecake was delicious. Thank you for a great, much needed date night.

    Aldo's has always been one of our favorite places to eat. The ambience is great. The live piano music was excellent. We were crowded into one of the round tables, so it was difficult to get to me for serving because I was on the other side away from the server. But the food was great, and our waiter did a lovely job in keeping up with everything but the water! All in all, we had a great meal and a great time! Thank you!

    We love Aldo's! But this time just didn't meet our expectations. I got the Alfredo and it wasn't all that great. Our waitress barely checked in on us even though I had an empty cocktail. I had wanted another but by the time she came back we were done with our meal. I also wanted some cheese on top of my food and she never came back.

    Food was delicious and service was great. The decor (Venetian clowns for Christmas) was quite distracting, and their non-alcoholic drinks were limited. The prices were a bit high but that likely is due to the evening being NYE, even though we went early at 5pm. Overall, we might give it another try when they have their full menu available.
