I live in Brooklyn and often drive up to Ithaca for work. On my way I make sure to stop at Aiello's. The food is as good as any place I've been to in Brooklyn for traditional Italian dishes, with the Chicken Parmigiana platter one of my favorites here. Everyone who works there is very friendly. I like to sit... More

I stopped in for a short business meeting and found the tiramisu staring at me from the case. I bought a slice and brought it back to the office. Needless to say there were multiple forks diving into my little decadent dessert. Hands down best tiramisu I have ever had. I have to stop back on friday for another meeting... More

The Chicken Marsala and Chicken Piccata were very good, as were the salads and fresh hot bread. Parking was difficult as the 2 parking lots were filled.

Have been to Aiello's often, both for business and pleasure. The service is always fantastic - they are very accommodating! We have recently started having business meetings there as well, and the staff and owner are more than willing to provide special service and attention for our group. The food is also always terrific (the red sauce is super) and... More

Amazing Italian food! All of their food is absolutely heavenly, and the wonderful people there are so attentive and kind! Their pizzas are to die for...fresh and high quality ingredients and toppings, and I've honestly never had eggplant cooked to such delicious perfection. The menu has a fantastic variety of dishes!

We live in New Jersey and a definite must stop is Aiello's Ristorante. They have the best chicken parm dinner we have had, and the bread is so good. We top it off with to-go cannolis because we are so stuffed from the dinner, but can't miss out on a cannoli. Also enjoyed panini, and the many other specialties Aiello's... More

I don't know where to begin. We came to find this place because Aiello is a family friend and our intention was to have lunch and text my friend a picture of a menu. That all stopped as soon as we walked into Aiello's and heard people speaking in the Sicilian dialect very similar to mine. Let's get to the... More

The Aiello Family moved to America from Sicily, Italy. Calogero (Charlie) was born in the village of Partannaand Vincenzo (Vinnie) was born in Alba, in the Piedmont area of northern Italy.Having grown up in and around restaurants and in Mama’s always busy kitchen, the family moved to Whitney Point where Vito (Papa) opened Aiello’s Ristorante in May of 1982 for his two sons to operate.The friendliness of Whitney Point has allowed Aiello’s to grow from a small pizzeria to the comfortable full service restaurant you enjoy today.It is important to us that you know we use fresh herbs, spices, cheeses and imported 100% olive oil in our kitchen. The finest raw ingredients we can find assure you of the highest quality experience.We enjoy getting to know our guests. Thank you for visiting with our family and we hope to see you again soon.
