Aldo's Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

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.

Aldo's is pretty good - I've been here a few times on date nights, for lunch, dinner with my mom, etc. Service is always prompt and polite. Their menu features a nice assortment of pasta, meat, fish, salads, breads, etc. Many items are made in-house. I LOVE the coconut cake which, I was informed last time, is made fresh by the owner's mother... it's amazing. Probably the best coconut cake of my life. On my last visit we tried the calamari and lamp chop appetizers, yum. I chose the chicken francese (I think) which was egg battered chicken with lemon wine sauce and pasta. Very good.

The crab stuffed avocado appetizer superb. Lamb chops fantastic. On a very very busy night our table was ready on time and the service was impeccable.

My wife and I have been going to aldos for decades and their food is always fantastic. We had a reservation for dinner tocelebrate our 37th wedding anniversary. Our table was not ready specifically situated by the piano for this special occasion. We had to wait for a long time and just gave up and just asked for any table. We were seated and our waiter, Jeff took care of us. We ordered a bottle of wine which was good but not the specific year we asked for. We subsequently ordered our dinner which took an unusual amount of time which the waiter told us that basically our orders got lost in the shufflend . Dessert was great.

Although the food was delicious and waitress accommodating, I don't appreciate their suggested tip request. They used the total, including tax, for the %. Correctly, one does not tip tax. The price of food is what is used to figure out tip. This should be corrected in the future if you must give a suggestion. I can figure my own tip.

Restaurant was recommended by other vacationers. My husband decided to give it a try while vacationing at Virginia Beach. We probably will not return since there are many more eaters that sparked our interest.

Delicious food. Professional staff. Felt like royalty.
Great place near the Beach!
A great find in Virginia Beach. Aldo’s is a very nice Italian restaurant near the beach. Aldo’s provides a very friendly and energetic atmosphere. We had a great meal and the service was good as well. We visit Aldo’s on our trips when we're down to the beach from Ohio. It was a very refreshing experience! We make Aldo’s Ristorante as primary stop. Easy to get in and out with easy access to I-264 and VB Blvd.
From the time you entered the door until you leave you are treated as someone special. Food was great, service was fantastic. Great menu selection and the specials were truly special.
Aldo's is one of my ALL TIME favorite restraunts!
My wife and had already experienced a wonderful 5-day getaway in NYC to celebrate our 30th anniversary early, but once we returned to the beach decided we would spend the actual day dining at Aldo's. It is an amazing restraunt, with great variety of food - although I usually would come to take part in the outstanding pastas and red sauce - this time I was talked into getting the red snapper. What a great choice! Was simply phenomenal! The wine, ambience, and extremely friendly staff makes this a home-run for our entire family every time. This kind of a restraunt would usually bring prices between $36-$50 per entree in NYC, but is incredibly cost-friendly for families. This is our favorite place!! - Doug and Megan Earlenbaugh -
Great Dining Experience
Family in from out of town and we celebrated a 52nd Anniversary, two birthdays, and Mother's and Father's Day all in one fell swoop. The staff was friendly, engaging, and made certain we were pleased with our selections for dinner and they were not overbearing. Which simply means they didn't hover while we were dining and having conversation. We enjoyed the antipasto plate appetizer. Everyone enjoyed their meal! And we enjoyed the chocolate gelato and chocolate ganache cake for dessert.

We have eaten at Aldo's in the past and always enjoyed it. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was excellent. They serve the usual Italian fare, but also have appetizers and entrees you don't see anywhere else. The wine list is extensive.
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.
