Aldo's Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Aldo's is a winning combination of good Italian comfort food dressed up and Virginia Beach's glitterati. Dishes such as romanelli alla vodka (pasta stuffed with Fontina, ricotta and Parmesan topped with tomato vodka cream sauce, prosciutto and shrimp), fileto al Cognac (hand-cut seven-ounce filet of beef in a Cognac-peppercorn sauce sided by linguine aglio olio) and pizzas from the wood-burning brick oven, and a notable wine list, have delighted Hampton Roadsters and tourists for more than 25 years. Desserts including napoleons and tiramisu make this a favorite of families, but the addition of live entertainment and a sophisticated meet-and-greet bar area mean Aldo's is a place where the beautiful people gather in the evenings for a variety of adult libations, many with Virginia accents, such as cosmopolitans comprising Cirrus potato vodka distilled in Richmond and house-crafted cranberry-basil syrup and hot toddies with local honey.

Aldo's - the worst restaurant experience in years
by wbarry on Wed Jul 30, 2008 6:07 pm
Tonight, we went to Aldo's with my 88 yr old mother for a special dinner. We even made reservations weeks in advance. The dinner was fine until the waiter's assistant brought the two main courses: shrimp & scallop linguine and veal marsala, to our table about 1 minute after the appetizers were delivered to us. We were not ready & I asked him to take them back. When we were finished with the appetizers, the main courses were brought out. It was obvious that the chef just put the dinners to the side until we were ready, rather than cook another dinner. The scallops & veal were worse than leather. The main courses were awful. We will never come back & recommend that anyone who wants a professional restaurant shun this place
