High hopes, but maybe too high.
Found Aldo's based on several reviews from this site. Made the reservations and mentioned the fact that it would be my mother's 73rd birthday and to note it for dessert time.
Overall, the food was excellent, done very well and presented nicely, but on the small side.
I didnt care for the overall service. They not only forgot about the birthday aspect of the reservation, our waiter didn't seem terribly attentive to the table needs. Our water glasses remained empty at times and the waiter seemed preoccupied. I expected more from a place where tips can cost as much as another meal.
During the meal we watched a large party being escorted past our table as they headed towards the wine cellar. It was quite distracting. I would think the wait staff would be more conscientious of this and not create an annoying surprise.
Sorry, cant fit more details.
A great place to spend a romantic evening.
Aldo's Italy is my top choice for Italian restaurants in Baltimore's Little Italy neighborhood. Great food and amazing service (You feel as if you have your own personal butler) combined with the romantic atmosphere make you feel as if you're actually sitting in Italy, enjoying the romance of the beautiful country.
Make sure to request seating in the atrium portion of the restaurant. It'll add to the ambience and mood of your meal and make it even more spectacular. You'll never forget this dining experience! I know I won't!
Queen for a night!. Aldo's was my first choice for dining in Little Italy and now I am not sure any other place could compare. A genuine pamper-yourself-silly splurge, but worth every penny. The sides of rissotto were perfect: creamy and smooth and seasoned just right. The spinach was sauteed beautifully and the main dishes were splendid! The meal was comfortable, and so very tasty. The desserts we tried were exquisite! The wine (reccommended by our fabulous waitor) was divine! Can anyone supply me with more positive adjectives? I seem to have run out of the words necessary to praise my meal and experience!
wonderful evening. The evening was perfect. Everything from appetizers to dessert was delicious. The service was very attentive and very helpful when selecting our main course. Aldo himself visited our table to see how we were enjoying our dinner. Visit Aldos you won't be disappointed!
Diners are pampered with fine Southern Italian cuisine and impeccable service at this stunning special-occasion spot..
With an interior resembling an elegant Italian villa, Aldo's is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Baltimore. The service is top-notch: Attentive, tuxedoed waiters pamper customers in the comfortably elegant dining rooms.
Aldo's serves gourmet southern-Italian cuisine prepared from the freshest organic and free-range ingredients. Each entree demonstrates Aldo's philosophy that a few select ingredients are essential to an exquisite, well-balanced dish, whether an appetizer of jumbo shrimp atop lobster-saffron mashed potatoes or an entr?e of Maine lobster pieces and fettuccine in creamy tomato sauce. A star on an already stellar menu, the tournedos Rossini consists of two seared filet mignons with grilled, buttery Hudson Valley foie gras in a black truffle, porcini and wild mushroom sauce.
Great food, beautiful ambiance, but....
Otherwise the place is great. Efficient and attentive service, fabulous food, extensive winelist. Try the shrimp st. andreas (appetizer) -- out of this world delicious. And the tiramisu was among the best i've had.
It was expensive, though. But we were splurging (for New Year's Eve) and got the $65 bottle of wine and appetizer and dessert. YMMV.
An great dinning experience. The service was outstanding,not only fast but like watching a fine art happen.The food was also outstanding.
Aldo's is Primo. Quietly tucked away in an old two story rowhouse, this ristorante offers it all... light oak trim, leaded glass, comfortable banquettes and chairs, rich place settings, fine wines, exquisite main courses topped with mouth watering desserts...served to you by a very knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. Truly a gem tucked away in Little Italy.
Dining Out. The pleasent greating as we entrered the restaurant was an indication that we were at the right place. The food was very good, if not excellent. My wife thought that the Caesar's salad was a bit peppery and her Amish chicken was a little bland. I, on the other hand, thought that the Red Snapper was outstanding! All of the dishes needed a little salt for our taste, but I would rather add salt that have food that was too salty.The waiter made an excellent wine suggestion that complimented our meals. The deserts were delicious. The service was somewhat uneven. Our waiter was attentive when he was present, but we felt that there were long periods of time that he wasn't around. Everythin considered, it was a good experience and we will return
10. We make it a point to eat at Aldo's whenever possible - after finding Aldo's over a year ago, I can honestly say that the quality, service and ambiance never changes. It is always oustanding!! It is very rare to find a restaurant the consistantly services the best food possible. Aldo's does it every time. We are never disappointed. They offer an oustanding wine list for every budget and are always making oustanding recommendations. Don't bother with any other restaurant in Little Itlaly - this is the one!
