The service was outstanding. The food was mediocre. To start, my husband and I split the avocado and crab salad. It had excessive mayonnaise, which killed the crab flavor. For dinner I had pasta with Alfredo sauce. The Alfredo sauce was bland. It lacked cheese and garlic. Nice ambiance.

Amazing dinner! Our server Michael was awesome! Everyone there was engaging, friendly, and made the place really special! The entrees were excellent from the appetizers through the dessert and coffee. We were there on a Sat night, so there was a fantastic pianist creating a great ambiance! I would highly recommend if you are local to Virginia Beach or if you are simply visiting. You will not be disappointed!

Food was excellent as always. Good wine list. It was very busy when we visited on a Saturday night and service was not up to par. We eat there a lot and usually get superior service- so it was a little disappointing. We still love Aldo's.

I made reservations to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food and the service were excellent. I had been to Aldo's many times before and had previously ordered pasta carbonara. It is no longer on the menu but when I asked if perhaps the chef could make it for me our server was very kind and made my request. The chef complied and as I had remembered it was absolutely delectable. I Aldo's would consider it back on the menu.

Excellent food and service, but pricy $$$$$. Had dinner on a relative quiet evening, but it was still noisy. Attempted to get a reservation for 6PM, but couldn't. Yet at 6PM there were very few people in the restaurant...I know because I sat outside from 5PM until 6:30.

A fabulous dinner with Christopher as our server. We had the Chicken Alfredo and Chicken Marsala. We both enjoyed our selections. A lovely experience. Has become one of our favorite restaurants in Virginia Beach!

We go to Aldo's a couple of times a year. For a little while it was hit or miss but the last few years it's been very consistent. The drinks are generous and good. The food this time was terrific for both myself and my wife. Service is always excellent and the prices are reasonable. I will definitely continue to go to Aldo's every vacation.

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.
