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.

Never disappointred, this visit was outstanding. A favorite location for special occasion meals. Worth the 1 1/2 hour drive each way because the table is always ready, we are greeted promptly and for special occasions, an appropriate acknowledgement. Good selection of cocktails, beer and wine plus appetizers. Service is always very good , not hovering but attentive, menu and specials offer a wide variety of dishes, prepared as desired, served at proper temperature and in a timely but never rushed manner. Similarly a good selection of desserts and for special occasions served with a plated acknowledgement.

Had some family from out of town visiting and chose to take them to Aldo's last weekend- and the experience was excellent as always. Everytime I have dined at Aldo's it has been close to perfection. The food, ambience, service, and value were 5 star. As a Virginia Beach resident I appreciate having Aldo's as an option for dining that I feel 100% certain will always be an amazing experience. In fact, I have already made reservations for this weekend to return with family. Thank you, Dennis

Restaurant was extremely busy . Service was very slow because there were several larger tables that were attended to first (we were four diners). However the food was very good, as always. This was a business meeting, but we could not hear each other because of the other diners. Next time, for a business meeting, we will ask to be seated in the smaller part of the restaurant, away from the larger tables.

It was our Anniversary and I was looking for a nice place with some ambience. We were sat right next to a bunch of people and the bar. The table behind me was so close I bumped the chair of the person behind me and got bumped as well. The food was ok. I would not go back for dinner but may for lunch. That's about it.

Very elegant restaurant, staff dressed professionally. My only complaint is that as an Italian dining place, with oil and vinegar and bread plates on the table, you would expect bread is served. No, our waitress said you have to ask for it.

From the moment you arrive at Aldo's the staff ensures that you feel special. As always the food is superb and never disappoints. The service was impeccable. If you have the pleasure of requesting Jade she will take good care of you. Her wine pairing choice was spot on and she was very attentive to our table.

We were seated immediately when we arrived at a booth that we requested. The drinks were excellent. We split a meal of the Shrimp Gargonzola. It was outstanding. The waitress was very friendly and helpful with the wine selection. We go to Aldo's probably twice a year. Every once in a while it has been a disappointment but usually it is very good. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet, tasty dinner away from the ocean front rush.

I have always liked Aldo's but this visit was not the best. 7 ladies at a rectangular table, bench seating against the wall, chairs on the other side....it was difficult to talk, noisy, and although we had a nice girl for a waitress, she needed a bit more training. She had only been with you for 4 days. The food according to some at the table was satisfactory but expensive. Several of the ladies ordered one of the evening's specials and were quite surprised at the cost. The waitress had not mentioned the prices of the specials but told them she thought it was $10-12 when asked. It turned out to be $15-16. I will definitely come back but do not know about some of the others.
