Aldo's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Aldo's is Ah-mazing!
We've been to Aldo's twice on the recommendation of a friend and they do not disappoint! The service is fantastic - polite, friendly, & knowledgable servers about the all beverages and cuisine. And the food is more than amazing! You cannot go wrong with any dish but the Tortellini Six Fromaggi, Chicken Marsala, Veal Scallopini (which was a chef's special) and the Lollipop Lamb dish (also chef's special) are our favorites. The atmosphere is classy enough for special occasions, but I've seen even casual attire. If you get a seat near the piano, it can be a little loud, but there are really no complaints for this restaurant. You'll love it no matter the mood or what you wear!

Really, really good food. Sunday night is traditionally the worst night of the week for dining but Aldo's is 100% in every category
We had a business dinner here last week. The services was impeccable and the food was delicious. I would definitely take vendors here again.

The best Italian restaurant within 100 miles.
This was our first visit. We visited on Mother's Day. Crowded but it did not affect the quality of service or food. Likely, the best Italian restaurant within 100 miles. We were a party of four and each had a very different entree and individually and collectivley they were excellent.
Not A Good Value
We had reservations for 6 at 4:00PM, their normal opening time, however this was Mother's day so they opened early. 3 of us wanted the chunky chicken salad and were told they were out. If it had been 8 or 9 PM, we could see being out of something, but 4:00 in the afternoon? That is not acceptable. 2 of us ended up getting grossly over priced pizzas, since none of the other salads sounded appetizing. We could have gotten 3 16" large pizzas with the works anyplace else for what we paid for 2 10" pizzas with little to no toppings.
Our server Robert was on top of everything the whole time. He started with great suggestions on food based both on what each person liked and did not like. he was there each time somebody wanted something, pleasant conversationalist as well.
Great food, great service
We chose Aldo's to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. We have been there many times and have never been disappointed. Our food was excellent and our service was too. As we left I told my wife that one thing I will miss after we complete our upcoming move to NC is that we didn't visit Aldo's more.
We had dinner at Aldo's after a mini-honeymoon in VB 26 yrs ago. We returned last weekend for our 26th anniversary. Still delicious!

Girls night dinner
I had a party of 3 and one of my girlfriends steak was over cooked. She asked for medium well but received a well done steak. Everyone was apologetic and the manager came and spoke with her and they replaced her steak. However, I was disappointed there was no discount offered for her meal.

Very Nice Lunch
Aldo's is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. The food is always enjoyable, the atmosphere is high quality and the staff is professional. This lunch was for a family gathering, so we had more than lunch - it was more like an early dinner - with appetizers, wine and normal entrees. Everyone was please with their meals and we were able to have a nice family moment in a pleasant atmosphere.

We love Aldo's. Great consistency in service and food. You can go as a family on a weeknight, or make a special night there. My husband orders veal piccata, which isn't even on the menu, and they're happy to accommodate. The waiters are well trained and know the dishes. We're always happy we went there.
Aldo's is AMAZING! Best in the area!
Aldo's totally lives up to every rave review from our friends! Worth the drive & money because the entire experience was fabulous! We can't wait for another special occasion so we can go back!
Checked off the list.
Food was good but nothing special. Service was excellent. Piano music was a nice touch.
Loved it all!

The food was incredible and they were able to meet our dietary requests. I don't usually eat deserts, of course if there's Napoleon then I make an exception. It was the perfect ending to a great meal
We sat our table for 10 minutes before we flagged a server down, we never received our salad and the owner/host never looked up and said thank you or goodbye as we exited his business. Never again. Isle of Capri has much better food and great service!
Food at its best:
I loved the variety of choices on the menu. The food was simply outstanding!!! The customer service was superior and the ambience was perfect!. Would highly recommend eating at this restaurant. It was time well spent!

We love Aldo's. The food was outstanding as always. Great restaurant week choices on the nenu. The waiter Rob was very good.

Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere
We went to Aldo's for Restaurant Week Dinner. Hadn't been there for more than a year and we had forgotten how much we really loved the place.
The antipasto plate is the best in the region. Crème brulee was outstanding.
Nice local hot spot
Aldo's is a reliable Italian spot. Good food, good service. only knock is no free bread...
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants . After my latest experience, I feel as though there are several more appealing options in the area. Service was OK, as was the food. We were celebrating a birthday and looking for better than OK. We were given food with a black and wilted garnish of basil. We attempted to speak with the manager, but he simply walked away. I definitely will not recommend or return.

Excellent experience! Wife and I came in with our 3 month old and they were very accommodating. Food was excellent as always and the waiter was magnificent.
OUTSTANDING DINING EXPERIENCE
Great food, ample selection and at reasonable prices. Highly recommended as a special night out dining choice for special occasions. Reservations highly recommended. This place is very popular by the waiting line in front as we left. Made our reservation a week early. Same day reservations are a long shot for a Saturday night.
Always the best....
Aldo's is my favorite restaurant. As someone who lived in Ghent for 30 years, Aldo's is the one reason to go to Virginia Beach.
Aldos is beautiful inside. The lighting and ambiance is perfect for a romantic night out and the weekend nightime piano player is the cherry on top. However the food leaves ALOT to be desired. It was bland, and I say that to be nice, no flavor at all, including the "parm/romano cheese" which reminded me of the off brand store Shaker cheese that has no flavor of cheese at all. My linguini noodles we're undercooked.....not aldenta undercooked....the shrimp in our meal still had shells on it.....that was fine for the shrimp appetizer but not for an Alfredo noodle meal where you have to mix the noodles with the shrimp.....my lemonade was from a store bought jar and I had to pay for a refill...... $8.....a tab of $100 is worth it if the food is good.......a frozen Alfredo dinner has more flavor, I'll never go back
Outstanding food and service!
As the title states, outstanding food and service. The stuffed lamb chop was phenomenal and my wife raved about the lobster ravioli. The wait staff were very courteous and attentive. My only complaint is the setting. It seems a bit dated. The ceiling tiles look like in particular were distracting. Our table was right next to the open kitchen, only divided by a wall. The other side of the restaurant seemed much more cozy and fitting for an establishment of such a high caliber. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone.
Outstanding food and terrific wait staff
Dining on Valentine's Day night, 8pm, the waiter and staff were all still energetic, helpful, considerate and timely. The food came quickly and it tasted superb!
A fine Italian restaurant for many years
We enjoyed dinner at Aldo's recently (Valentine's Day), and recommend it to all. The traditional warm atmosphere, complete with live piano background music, made the occasion special for the two of us. The food was delicious, and service on a very busy evening was prompt and courteous. We promised ourselves to come by more often. Great value, stands out among the many dinner choices near the Virginia Beach oceanfront.
