“Great Italian food in Virginia Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Figured we had to get away from the beach area to avoid the tourist trap restaurants. Drove 10 to 15 minutes inland and found Aldo's. Great atmosphere, professional wait staff and very good food. We would go back.

“cork charge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

when visiting Virginia beach we decided to try this restaurant. we first called for a reservation. then we called for directions. we then called about byob and they said yes and where we could buy wine. they never mentioned a cork charge in any of the 3 phone calls. we had a wonderful meal and great service. they also had their own bar which we commented on and still no mention of the cork charge. we then get the bill with a charge of $25.00 per bottle which we had 2 of. when we asked why a charge they said that was their policy. we told them no one told about this and all they said was that they were sorry. we told them we from out of town but they could care less. I might never get back there but I think they handled this situation poorly.

“Excellent upscale Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

A great Italian restaurant off of Laskin Road. Nice interior providing a very god ambient for dining. The menu is very diverse, great daily specials, everything sounded tempting when quoted by the very attentive staff. Although I was in a bit of a hurry I enjoyed my dinner. Highly recommended for a nice romantic dinner or just with friends.

“Tasty and prepared well”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

Had reservations so getting seated no problem. Server was excellent and remembered everything without writing it down. Decor sort of leans toward the 80s . My angelhair pasta with pancetta and tomato was very tasty and good portion. Was able to have as leftover for lunch next day. Fresh salad. You do have to ask for bread. We had focaccia. Nice and crisp. Tiramasu go dessert but new careful if your lactose intolerant. Lot of heavy cream. Would go back.

“NYC quality in VA Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

My husband and I ate here on our first night in VA Beach. We were seated near the piano player and had a delicious meal with amazing service from Natalie. The food was so good we kept saying how awesome it would be to have Aldo's in NYC - and there are a lot of Italian restaurants here already. I saw a review below that says the restaurant had no bread - they do have bread but you have to request it, like many restaurants are doing now. We will definitely go back when we return to VA Beach.
