Kids love this place (there were lots of families there the night we had dinner), and I feel comfortable eating here with my family. There are gluten-free options and the salads are good. The wait staff was friendly and efficient.

We've been to Aldo's many times and are never disappointed. We especially like the lengthy and varied Cicchetti menu (small bites). This time we paired some perfectly crisp calamari with a caprese salad for a light lunch. Staff is attentive but not overbearing. We lingered quite a while over conversation, but never felt pressure to leave. We'll be back again... More

I like to get the appetizers here: delicious asparagus, flavorful portobello mushroom, crisp calamari. These are small portions that just hits the spot. My colleague loved the capellini. Of course, that means we saved room for affogato - yum! Service was professional and efficient.

Today was my 3rd visit and each experience has been great in food and service. We started off with a caprese salad with roasted eggplant and beet/endive/goat cheese salad; both were out of this world. For entrees, our younger son had pizza and gnocci from the kid's menu and loved them. The rest of us had chicken/artichokes in a lemon... More

Aldo's is coming a fixture on our dining rotation. Despite being busy, they nearly always accommodate us quickly, without any fuss and always with a smile. Most evenings after dining at Aldo's, my wife and I come away saying, we should go there even more often. Is there a better recommendation than that? I think not.

I have been to this restaurant many times and it consistently has great food and good service. For lunch I especially like the Svedese Panini (Smoked salmon, red onion, capers, lemon slices, goat cheese.)

Food looks good, price is ok but it is not gourmet food. You get for what you pay of it. Ok of lunch expensive for dinner & quality.

Friendly service, lively atmosphere and authentic Italian feel made this a good place for a late dinner. Comfortable booth for our birthday dinner. Attentive but not pushy service from a California native, but helpful. Suggested a bottle instead of three separate glasses of the same wine, which we managed to finish off without any problem! Food was nicely prepared and... More

Stopped here on our way to Monterey for dinner. Good food, great service, but I felt it was a little over priced. Vegetarian friendly.
