Aldo's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Aldo's is my favorite Italian restaurant ...
Aldo's is my favorite Italian restaurant, I have been taking dates and business associates to Aldo's for years. My significant other has had bad meals or bad experiences at this restaurant more than a few times. I made this reservation for a special night out and to prove to her that Aldo's serves delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere with excellent service. It worked she had a steak special that was out of this world good and a nice house wine that she enjoyed very much, all in all a great evening.

This is a restaurant in a strip mall that I asked my wife to marry me at. The ambience used to be great with a piano player - a lot has changed in 15 years. The prices are not bad but the restaurant tries too hard in areas hat don't matter. You don't need valet parking for this restaurant - you need personable and more excited wait staff..... not a stuffy "are you done" attitude.

I have been coming here for 28 years but had not been back in quite awhile. My youngest daughter visited and she and her sister always loved Aldo's so we went. It was as wonderful as ever; robust menu with something for all tastes, and a wine list that is extraordinary. Service is impeccable and the presentation truly remarkable. When we arrived for our Open Table reservation, there was a small line waiting outside. Our table was waiting and we were seated immediately. Superior cocktail menu and the desserts are phenomenal. In short, it was all that I remembered it for and it exceeded even the most rigorous expectations.

Fabulous food ... As always! We've eaten at Aldo's many time & it's always great! The server, however, needed additional training. He brought the wrong cocktail to my table companion & slopped it in the table. He reversed entree plates between me & the person at the next seat. It wasn't until a couple bites in that I found chicken in my entree, which had been ordered meat & cheese-free. We switched plates, but I ended up eating s meal my table-mate already had eaten from, & he was forced to eat the meal I had sampled. Also, the bill arrived with an extra item we had not ordered, which I had to have removed. What a litany of appalling service! However, let me emphasize how tremendous the food was ... Great!

As usual our experience was excellent. Christopher our server was outstanding.
Great bottle of wine recommended by Toni the bartender. Food quality was of the highest quality. Sometimes I wish we lived closer. I love a professional, quality, well paced experience. Can't wait to go back.

Aldo's is always consistent in the quality of their food and the service they provide. Our server was very good and he anticipated everything we needed immediately. All six of our party enjoyed the food tremendously. The Barretta starter/salad was excellent and the pasta was also the best. We always dine at Aldo's when we are in Virginia Beach.

Our annual vacation to VA Beach always includes a trip to Aldo's for some of the best Italian food anywhere. The burrata cheese appetizer is outstanding. The wine list has a great selection of glasses so you can try more than one with dinner. My wife had the Greek salad (she's Greek) and concluded it was one of the best she's had. For dinner I had the shrimp scampi, and my wife had penne with their home made marinara sauce. Both were extremely fresh and flavorful, and we cleaned our plates. Our only regret was that we were so full we couldn't eat dessert. All of their choices looked amazing. Aldo's is one of the reasons we look forward to returning to VA Beach for vacation. We're counting the days until we come back.

My veal chip was very good.mothers eggplant Parmesan was burnt on bottom. Father had requested no chicken in the chicken n sausage pasta but it had chicken. All desserts were very good and waiter put happy birthday on plate. Nice touch.

We hadn't been to Aldo's in over six years, primarily because it is a 20 to 25 minute drive from where we live. Had a fabulous experience with Christopher as our waiter. He is very knowledgeable about wines and made some excellent recommendations. The food was very good, very well seasoned, and from fresh ingredients. We took a friend who was celebrating her 90th birthday, and the staff put Happy Birthday on her desert place, a special touch. Have returned two more times in the last month since our initial visit. Very highly recommended for Italian food and nice atmosphere.

We ordered the calamari appetizer and found it to be rubbery (over-cooked), but our waitress took it back without hesitation, and the manager came over and apologized. We then had the antipasto, which was the best we ever had. Our entrees were also top notch. We have become fans of Aldo's.

Food was good, service was ok. We went to dine with the intention of taking our time and enjoying the weekend, but ended up feeling very rushed by our server. Just a short time after our appetizer arrived, our dinner showed up.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Aldo's in celebration of our 33rd Anniversary. We visit regularly and have never been disappointed in the food and everything the restaurant has to offer. We highly recommend the restaurant to anyone seeking good food, a pleasant ambiance and excellent service.

Unfortunately, I don't think that Aldo's is living up to the service standards that they have provided and the quality of food that they provided in the past. The food was less than average and the waitstaff was all new. Even though we have been long time patrons of Aldo's, we will not go again. We were very disappointed.

Absolutely wonderful experience! Very classy place, and made to feel welcome and relaxed. Entire staff was outstanding, especially our waiter. Knowledgeable, confident, service and customer oriented. The food was spectacular! Portioned just right, prepared to perfection. This was perhaps my best ever dining experience.

Night started off nicely with cocktails at the bar. We went to our table and our waitress ended up not being attentive which is probably why I can't recall her name. Long, dangle feather earrings. We order our food and asked for a sommelier and Christopher helped us out. Picked a wonderful wine and even checked in on us more than than our waitress. I got the veal chop stuffed with spinach and mozzarella and it was amazing! My husband got the filet cognac. It was delicious however it came out medium rare when he ordered medium well. Waitress was too busy so manager finally came over to fix it. Instead of a new steak they tossed the pieces back on a plate. It wasn't good. Finally they made a new one that came out perfect. Unfortunately I was way past done eating so not ideal. Manager was too invasive after the kitchens mistake and not very friendly. Waitress came back to bring bill, notifying us they didn't take the steak off, not that we asked. She obviously knew something should have been taken off. Even after all that we would go back because the food was delicious. However, we will request Christopher next time.
