“What's the fuss all about?”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

Friends and acquaintances have raved about Aldo's for years. We could never figure out why! The owner, Aldo, is probably the last person on a long line of applicants that you would hire to be a greeter, host or maitre de. He'd be better off just having guests shown to their table by the server at whose table you would be seated. We celebrated our daughter's birthday the other night. We ordered a variety of offerings; all were quite delicious. I have reservations about my double cut veal chop, however. It was fatty and gristly. Hardly cooked inside although the waiter suggested "medium". I should have sent it back, but I didn't want to create a delay in our family meal. All in all, as my grandson pointed out, the background noise was evident, but not too bad as some reviewers have indicated. My take on Aldo's? Just another "pretty good" area Italian restaurant.

Always great food and attentive service by a well informed staff. BYOB is also a big plus. Even when crowded, the noise level muted.

“Blah experience”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Came here for an early dinner with my wife and in-laws. We were greeted by by a male who had the personality of a house plant. He seemed to be bothered by the fact we didn't have reservations when the place was empty. When we told him if that was a problem, he mumbled something as he led us to a table.

The food was good and very well priced. Everyone was pleased with their dishes.

The other negative as mentioned here, the place seems like your in sitting in the bathroom eating in regards to the acoustics. We could barely enjoy our conversation.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

If you are the type that orders Veal Parmesan off a menu, don't bother coming here. (People who only order Veal Parmesan at "Italian" restaurants are not exactly gourmets and should not be reviewing fine Italian restaurants.) But if you enjoy fabulous creative Northern Italian/Romano/Toscano masterpieces (or selections from four or five fish dishes each evening), "Benvenuti a Aldo’s". The appetizers alone at this charming BYOB bistro are awesome (and provide a great meal for "small plate" diners). Aldo's soups are to die for. Desserts vary from night to night ... and are always tempting and delicious.

Service is completely professional ... well-trained and efficient waitstaff.

Yes, Aldo's can be quite noisy in the main room on Friday and Saturday evenings ... but that is no different from the Palm Beach County & Broward County venues which we frequent in Southeast Florida.
