We’ve had dinner every Sunday during the month of November , always good service and the food is fabulous.
Your patio dining has made it possible to eat out. This is our new favorite place. We appreciate all that you do for your customers. Thank you!

We had chicken parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana. Both were excellent. Their tent is perfect for fall and winter dining.

We came here for a celebratory dinner as our friend was in town. We waited almost 20 minutes before being greeted and had to go to the bar and ask for a server before she even came over. Drinks were not filled, water was given to only half of us- which we had to ask for more than once. And then she was pushy with getting us to order. Some of us have been here before and have had a great experience... which is why we chose it. I can say if this was my first time here I wouldn’t be coming back. The drinks were good once we finally got them and the food was ok. Not sure I’ll be back anytime soon

This is a great restaurant that I’ve been to several times now and I have never had a bad meal here. Mallory is a fantastic waitress too and most of their martinis I have had are very good. The ambience is great and it makes for a great date night! I will definitely be back! The only gripe I have is it is pretty loud.

Aliano's has an outdoor year-round patio with firepits and propane heaters. It is located in charming, lovely East Dundee. Their Italian food is top-rate. I enjoy the Calamari Alla Grigalla or the Calamari Aliano. Last time I was there I had a baked banana dessert with amaretto and caramel. It was totally delicious decadence. The servers are very personable and hospitable. I love the warm bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I always request some cheese with that and they graciously accommodate me. It is a comfortable place to share a fabulous meal with family or friends or even a romantic dining experience.

We had dinner earlier in the year and really enjoyed our dinner. This time the good just did not have the same great flavor as last time. Perhaps a different chef! Service was good and the place looked great
