If you want authentic italian food, this is the place to dine. The food is always fresh, flavorful and served piping hot. The bread is to die for too. Check out the numerous specials on the blackboard - usually top-notch meals! Can't beat Aldo's for real Italian dining.

Aldo's is a great small restaurant with great food and great service. I went to dinner with my family and we had a wonderful time. The amount of food that we got was exceptional for the price. The wine was also very good. I ordered a glass of Resling and instead of getting a half glass of wine like you... More

All though the place was packed, our experience was nothing more than poor, The place is... More

Don't let the humble outside small strip appearance food you. Behind Aldo's front door hides the yummiest homemade Italian food. This wonderful eatery run by Aldo himself and his family is somewhat of a Cleveland institution. The place is small, maybe fits 30 diners, but people come here from the 4 corners of Cleveland for the convivial feeling, the genuine... More

Stopped for dinner while traveling in the area. It was excellent! From the food, atmosphere, wait staff. I ordered the sausage, peppers and onion over pasta with a red sauce. It was very tasty. The meal also came with bread and a salad that were both just as good. The place is very tiny, maybe seats 50 and fortunately I... More

This is my favorite restaurant in the world. Be prepared to be treated like family and you will be amazed! Everything is fresh, not frozen. Fish, veal, pastas, sauces...out of this world. They will make you anything and you'll never need to ask for more! I have never found a more relaxing atmosphere with world class service and a family... More

Aldo's is an institution in Brooklyn. The tiny intimate dinning room adds to the charm of the place. Aldo and his family deliver a great experience very time.

I have been to Aldo's before, we had a great time (Valentine's Day with 2 other friends). However, on Sunday, September 4th, my family had made reservations for 8 of us to have dinner at Aldo's - my choice for my birthday dinner - and my father and step mom were eager to try it since they've heard good things....

We went there on a Friday and were just in time to get a table. So glad we tried it: the food was delicious and the atmosphere was authentic Italian. We had the grilled salmon with vegetables (special) and eggplant parmigiana (menu). Dessert was tiramisu and cherry ice cream. Everything was delicious. Highly recommended!

My son played hockey two minutes from Aldo's for two years and I had driven by too many times to count and never thought about stopping. What a mistake! Great food, great service and a great meal! Don't drive by, stop in, you won't leave hungry.
