If you are looking for consistently produced Italian fine dining, this is where you need to be. For lunch (my fave) and also dinner, I have never had a bad experience, always walk away satisfied and assured I will return. I'm very glad it is easily reachable from home and the office, so both lunch and dinner are options.

Still never have had a bad experience at Aldo's. Service and food always excellent. We were on the back end of dinner rush so wait for food was a little longer than usual but worth it! Aldo's will remain our family's 'go to' for a fine dining experience!

We have been here a couple times. Both time were great. However, this time while the food was good there were issues. For example, a salad should not have a ladles amount of dressing. Both my wife’s and my entrees were barely warm. Not what should expect from a upper scale restaurant overall with a $$$ cost. Unfortunately now our thought is, let’s try somewhere else.

Reservation was about 15 minutes behind schedule on a Saturday evening. Crowd was great along with the live music. Once seated the waiter did a great job with the wine order along with appetizers; which were not put in but he fixed it fast once our plates were served. Everything was perfect and we certainly will be back. This was our first time there and we brought along business clients and they all approved. Highly recommend to others.

We celebrated two family birthdays on Saturday night. Food was delicious. Entrees ranged from halibut to meatballs and pasta to veal Parmesan and more. Trevor provided excellent service and is well versed with the wine selection. A lovely celebration at a terrific restaurant!

Outstanding as usual. One of the best restaurants in Va Beach and one of our all time favorites. Their she-crab soup, now a regular menu item, is the best I’ve had anywhere in the area. I had a Halibut special this particular evening and it was top notch. Great wine list, profession wait staff, always accommodating... you can’t go wrong with Aldo’s.

-Had to ask for a ice carafe after having a chilled bottle of white wine to our table.

-And while I am sure it is a cooking style or preference, but serving pasta with sauce served on top of it (rather than cooking the pasta in the sauce the last minute or two), just seems like a lazy way to serve Italian pasta.

Aldo's was wonderful. Our food was amazing and the service was stellar. Our server, Michael, could not have been more helpful or kind. The live piano music was lovely. The martinis were great. Possibly the best she crab soup ever. My only small complaint would be that I had requested a booth as my husband is quite tall and we were instead seated at a small table. We will definitely be back and would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Although the food was good, entree portions were small for the price I paid. A cup of pasta and 6-8oz piece of salmon (mine probably 6oz) for $22.00 + tax! I left still hungry.

Was a bit disappointed in the food quality this time. Also was put at a small window (even with reservation) table and rushed so didn't get the experience we were hoping for to recreate out engagement night.

My fiance didn't make reservations till the last minute so he was only able to get into Outback Steakhouse and I didn't want to go there for V-Day so I did some more research and found that Aldo's had a few options for outdoor seating and high tops but not till 8-9 pm so thinking it was actually outdoors in February at 39 degrees I chose the high top for 9:15pm. We decided to go early and was able to get a table outside (covered and heated). He was so impressed that he wants to go back for our anniversary in two weeks. Coudos to Chris our waiter who was so professional, courteous and accommodating to our needs and requests. Aldo's is definitely a top choice, although a but pricey but we'll worth for quality, quantity and service.

Aldo's is the best Italian Restaurant in Virginia Beach! Every time we go, we receive the same level of excellent service and delicious food. Occasionally, there is live music!

Had 5pm Valentines Day reservation, was seated immediately near the pianist. Restaurant was full, but not overly loud nor packed. Service was quick, courteous and menu knowledgeable. Bread, salad, she crab soup and main courses were delicious, served reasonably and exceptionally delicious. Deserts were top notch too. For a quality restaurant, prices were reasonable for the quality and size of dishes.
Would highly recommend Aldo's for every special situation and also when you want a classy, delicious Italian meal.

We have dined at ALDOS numerous times over the years and was always satisfied. However, the Valentines Day menu was limited and we noticed an increase in pricing over same items previously offered during a regular menu. Disappointed.
