I've only been here about 4 times in the last year, but each time, the food has been fantastic. The burrata appetizer is marvelous, but do not bother with the prosciutto 'wrap' around the cheese. I tried it after 2 times of non-prosciutto. The prosciutto does not balance well and is a distraction. Wine list is always superb, if a... More

Was taken to Aldo's at recommendation of a friend. Atmosphere was really good for having a conversation, but a bit "stuffy" as far as the wait help. Our waiter was very nice and they did tailor a dish for me, which I appreciated. Wine selection is very extensive; we ordered a less-costly Sauvignon Blanc and I wasn't impressed with it;... More

On a recent trip to Virginia Beach we got a reservation at Aldo's based on reviews and if did not disappoint. A very nice, traditional Italian restaurant. The Menu was very extensive and several evening specials were added to make the decision even more difficult. Also Creative cocktails and nice wine list We ended up with an appetizer special to...

Had dinner at Aldo's tonight. From reading all of the great reviews, we were anticipating a great meal. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. It is advertised as fine dining but the ambiance did not support this claim. We ordered Veal Parm and Chicken Marsala, which we normally order at a new Italian restaurant, to compare. The marsala sauce was very sweet.... More

We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy yourselves during your visit. Our menu is influenced from Northern Italy, so it may taste different than you're used to. We hope you made your waiter aware of your problems so they could be corrected that evening. If not please contact, so we may right this wrong. More

My wife and I brought her parents to Aldo's for their anniversary. It is clearly one of the best places for special occasions and great Italian food. Another plus is that it's locally owned. Everyone loved their choice from the calamari appetizer to the salmon to my "go-to" special...the veal chop stuffed with sauteed spinach and mozzarella.

Thank you for the amazing review. Aldo's has been locally owned for 28 years. We're hoping to one day make the veal chop a permanent item on our menu. We hope you'll think of us for your upcoming special occasions. More

We visited a couple Virginia Beach restaurants during Restaurant Week back in February, so I was surprised to another advertised for October. I’m not complaining! Since moving to the Tidewater area a few years ago, visiting numerous businesses in the Hilltop-area, we just hadn’t got to Aldo’s until tonight. I searched though all the special menus for each participating restaurant... More

Thank you for the wonderful review! We participate in Virginia Beach Restaurant Week every year. We like to use it as an opportunity to try new specials out and possibly make them year round menu item favorites. Thanks to this October's Restaurant Week, we will be adding the lamb chops not only as a dinner option, but also an appetizer.... More

What a wonderful place for real Italian cuisine. Their hospitality for 20 people was over the top.

We have kept Aldo's as our "special occasion" place for the past 18 years. I recently visited with a large party for a birthday and was very disappointed.
