Aldo's Rest and bakery are the very few places where you can get a great meal and not be crushed by credit card overload. Go for the veal parm, some the best ever. The the stuffed quahogs are excellent (stuffies).

Came here for ice cream after dinner. Zero disappointment here! Lots of flavors to choose from. It's somewhat hidden in a courtyard. If you love ice cream, try this place!
