Aliano's offers that rare combination of fantastic food, amazing service and incredible ambience in a truly unique setting.

During summer months the breezes blow sweetly through the open outdoor space. And on our recent visit, the heaters created a warm atmosphere in the space with the winter walls erected around it.

Mike, our server each time we go, treats us like family and is always quick, gracious, and kind. He helps us celebrate our special events and always makes us glad we have brought friends to one of our favorite places.

The food is consistently outstanding and the chef is always willing to make adjustments to fit the customers taste or requirements.

In a city filled with great places to eat, Aliano's is one of the best. If you haven't been, you should go. And when you do, ask for Mike:)

Great food. Huge pours of wine if you order a glass. Smoked Old Fashioned is too sweet for my taste. Didn’t feel like I tasted much smoke. Will be back multiple times.

We were celebrating our first anniversary as a married couple. It was lovely, Nolan was our server and I have had the pleasure of having Nolan serve me on two separate occasions and he always does such a fantastic job. He is not only pleasant, but he is super accommodating and attentive to not just us but also to his other tables. The only issue was the lightening was flickering occasionally but aside from that the chef's creations were delicious. We ordered the cheesy sausage crepes and they were super tasty, salty and sweet. Nothing like I expected. We also ordered the stripped bass, which was mouthwatering. We shared our plates so we could have room for dessert. The cheesecake was not dry at all, super creamy for a block cheesecake, however the flourless chocolate cake was too dry for our liking. Next time I will go for the cheesecake.
We love this place and are lucky to eat here several times a year.

Limited seating requires reservations for Fridays to be done a week in advance. Outdoor patio area is now winterized so was very comfortable. Server Noland was knowledgeable and very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and creatively presented. Wine good too. Fish special entree with bass and shrimp was very good but seemed a tad expensive at $35, hence my value rating.

We came early on a Thursday, and started with wine and beer. We were first served hot crusty bread with a plate of olive oil and fantastic balsamic, yummy. We ordered the Chicken Piccata and the Gnocchi (homemade) with sausage, and added salads, both were good. Decided to end the meal with a slice of cheese cake to go. Our server was great, and we appreciated his suggestions.

Always one of our favorites! However if you’re in a time crunch you’d probably should go somewhere else as the minimum food time to the table is 45-60 minutes. Our server was excellent as was the food as always but since you’ll be spending most likely 90 minutes on very uncomfortable chairs ya may need a cushion! Really should spring for larger more comfortable chairs and tables for that matter and dial in the food time and it’s a solid 4+ star restaurant.

Expensive but overall very good. Long wait or entrees but food was delivered hot. Salmon a la Lisa had much too much rice. While service was friendly attention to detail missing. Bring pepper with the salads and refills on coffee took way too long.

This is an awesome restaurant and dining experience. The kitchen was running a little behind with our entrees, but the owners came out multiple times to apologize and took very good care of us. We love dining here because the food is exceptional and they really care about their guests.

Celebrated our birthdays with family last night @ Alianos, 6 adults and 1 child,
Every. single. thing. was outstanding. Our server Brianna was the best server Ive had in a long time, so attentive, friendly and paced everything perfectly. She truly went above and beyond for us with all the little things and I was beyond impressed. It was half price bottle of wine too so that was a bonus, I drink red blends and Im hard to please and thought both options were really good, and the martinis were fantastic too. The bartender/owner made special requests and was I so appreciative
I consider myself a "foodie" and Im not easy to please again...but the food from start to finish was truly delicious, the antipasto, calamari, goat cheese bruchetta all equally tasty. Everyone really enjoyed their main dishes too, lasagna, Marsala, samtimboca, seafood....verything was cooked perfectly and the sauces were all to die for
and even special accommodations for my picky toddler who gobbled up her pasta.
then even brought special birthday desserts for us and could barely finish we were so full.
We left so full and happy and can not wait to go back. this place is a true little gem

I am sorry to say we were disappointed with our experience last night. We have been loyal Aliano's customers for a few years now. Usually come about 4 times a year and had our last 2 anniversary dinners here along with our daughter's 21st birthday celebration. The food was good overall and the ambience was beautiful as always. However, it was our wedding anniversary and we felt very "rushed" to say the least. Our reservation was at 6:45pm and we were rushed through our apps, dinner and dessert and received our check at 8:01pm, (despite me telling our waitress-Malory- it was our anniversary and we were not in hurry). Virtually every table around us was there BEFORE us and still there when we left. We wanted to have an after dinner drink to enjoy the entertainment and were told we had to leave the table by 8:15pm, so we left. Unfortunately, the brief 1 hour 15 minute dinner experience was not what we had hoped for.
