One of the best meals we have ever had! Our server was delightful and made our anniversary very special, complete with chocolate mousse and homemade limoncello. Highly recommend the lobster fettuccine, shrimp bruschetta and meatballs!

Morris, our server was the absolute best. The ambiance is perfect. My mother kept saying how much she loved the music. We had the carpaccio, foie gras, and cypress for appetizers. All were amazing. Fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, the foie gras has a cherry sauce that was to die for. Mains we had the scallops entree, Tuscan style Veal chop, whole Bronzino and pasta. Superb. Can’t reiterate enough how awesome our server Morris was. Very safe measure we taken for COVID. We felt very comfortable. We will absolutely return!

My wife and I had a wonderful meal at Aldo's. The greeting was warm and the food was outstanding. Our server was probably new. He was pleasant but lacked a few skills one would normally find in a 4 star restaurant. For example, he served a martini without an olive and we had to ask twice for him to bring one. There were a few other small examples not worth mentioning--not a big deal. The restaurant gets 5 stars from me as the overall experience was outstanding. We will definitely return.

The food served was not as described on the menu and missing key components. Everything felt over promised and under delivered and the soup was awful - we sent both of them back the cream of asparagus (missing the whipped hurrays and truffle drizzle) and the shrimp bisque had no cream and was very thin. The foie Gras was sliced into 4 small slivers to make it seems like more than the small portion it was. It was served with crostini’s and not brioche as menu said. My scallops were perfect, but the asparagus risotto was meant to be served with “blistered grape tomatoes” and instead it was served with chopped up, sad, sautéed, limp salad tomatoes. My husbands special arrived deflated and much different than the grandiose description of fresh rockfish, stuffed with crab imperial and drizzles with a butter tomato sauce. It was just sad. The whole food aspect of the dinner felt sad. Our service was excellent and our wine was stellar.

Run, don't walk to get a reservation at this place! We had never been before, but have been to every other place in Baltimore's Little Italy and this was by FAR my favorite. Not even close. The atmosphere, the incredibly knowledgeable staff, the food and the cleanliness of the restaurant were all top notch. The attention to detail is completely impeccable. Thanks for a truly magic evening, we will be back!!!!!!

Aldo’s is very elegant and a perfect place to dine for a special occasion, or no occasion at all. The food was delicious (eggplant Parmesan, shrimp scampi, bucatini with lobster). Service was excellent. We felt this restaurant gives the Charleston a run for the money. The prices are a bit steep, but the portions are very generous. Would highly recommend Aldo’s.

If you're looking for a special night, make it at Aldo's. My husband and I went to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and left feeling so special and spoiled. We were given complementary glasses of champagne, limoncello shots, and a comped entree as well. Our dessert came with a candle and a chocolate "Happy Anniversary" sign. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is quiet and beautiful. Highly recommend.

Another great experience at this Little Italy gem! Start with the Eggplant Parmesan Tower and the Red Beet salad, my wife had grilled Bronzini and I did the Wild Boar Pappardelle. Finished with Canolli and Cappuccinos. Classic upscale Italian not to be missed!

We decided last minute to get a reservation here. So glad we did. The food was great and our waiter was attentive. One side note, I had an apple tart as they were out of the profiteroles. It was okay but then in the middle of the tart it was cold. The waiter apologized and refunded the tart. All in all,it was a good dinner.

Great classic Italian by one of Baltimore's best Italian fine dining restaurants! Great service, amazing food and some of the best martinis anywhere. We started with two martinis from the bartender, Anastasia, fried calamari and then shared their fresh Mista salad followed by the Pappardale Cinghiale (wild board ragu) and the Orecchiette. Our server, Rick suggested we take the leftover Orecchiette home and add some fried eggs for breakfast. Amazing! Put this on your list if it is not already!

Aldo's is one of our favorite spots in Baltimore. It's great for a romantic evening out or meeting up with friends for wine at the bar. The food is delicious, especially the Eggplant Parmesan and the Veal Francese. Their housemade Limoncello is as great accompaniment with any of their delicious desserts.

Bottom line: EXCELLENT food, wine selection, service and ambience. I was in town for a conference and selected Aldo's based on reviews highlighting fresh and local sourcing and proud family history. I was seated at 5:45 on a Friday in early March. I was one of a handful of early dinners on a Friday night. Wine list was beyond extensive. Risotto with mushrooms in demi-glaze appetizer was spot on and delicious. Sea bass was fresh, grilled with pesto and finished with a lemon garlic sauce under the broiler and roasted tomatoes. To end the meal, I offered the tirami save found it to be the best I've ever had in 40 years. A complimentary, house-made limoncello was delightful. Service was impeccable.

Aldo's was a first-time visit for the four of us. We got what we expected: the menu was authentically Italian, the food was very good, the service was excellent. We appreciated the overall lack of blaring music: the room was a little loud but it was conversational. We were also allowed to linger and did not feel at all rushed, which we appreciated. All in all, we will go back and try other things ont he menu. The chicken marsala was good, the fish was good, the dessert (apple tart) was small but good.

Great food, ambience and service. We brought our 9 and 11 year old boys to experience the best Italian food in Baltimore and they made it 3 hours with no iPads!!! They loved the food and each got the $26/person pasta trio with Carbonara, rigatoni a la vodka and linguini with clams (only thing they weren’t crazy about). We also got lobster risotto for 4, the filet with foie gras and mushroom demi which was immaculate. Desert was also a hit with tiramisu, chocolate mousse, and lemonchello profiteroles. The profiteroles were one of the best deserts I’ve ever eaten. It was a great family dinner that made some great memories with our kids leaving the iPads in the car for a change. Worth the $400 + $100 tip to have such a great evening.
