I still like my mom's lasagna more, BUT Aldo's Italian Restaurant was fantastic! I loved the atmosphere, our server was very kind and was non-intrusive. Everything was great, I will definitely be coming back again.

My Wife and I were in San Antonio recently and we were having trouble finding a good Italian restaurant. We looked online and found a website called www.sanantoniobestrestaurant,com we found Aldo's Restaurante Italiano. I would never have

Really good food, reasonable prices but service is slow. We had a party of 12 on 7 Oct 10 w/ 7:00 reservations. We were seated immedately as soon as all the party arrived. Atmoshpere was okay, but it would have been better with some soft

Travel to Italy without leaving the city! Talk about authentic! Aldo's is ALL italiano!!! Some say it's pricey, I say their food and service is well worth the price! The setting is just like you'd see in the movies, all that's missing is the Godfather with his crew sitting across the way from your table raising his glass to you and saying "Salud"! (without the violence of course)

I've been eating at Aldo's since I was young. The food is always wonderful and the staff is always curteous and kind. They're also great with large parties. My prom party dined there (there were 10 of us) and the food was prepared quickly and tasted amazing! This is the best italian restaurant in San Antonio!

Pros: Great food, staff and ambiance!

Cons: A bit pricey.

To the old lady below me; just because your server asked you if you wanted one bag does not imply that you and your girlfriend are married. I am a server and am completely discouraged by your attitude. Maybe he assumed you were sisters, or that both of the food was going to one house? And, you could've told the restaurant you wanted to sit inside rather then outside, from what I know of the restaurant you aren't even that close to Fredericksburg Road anyways, and it being 7pm at night I highly doubt it was as bad as you are complaining it is. No one made you sit outside you could've sat somewhere else.

The servers are mediocre. You go to a restaurant for food, you don't go there to be sat with the worst server ever. The only way you can change that is to ask the manager for a new server, it isn't THAT hard. The food there is good, but it could be better.

This was our second time dining at Aldo's and I must say that we need to go more. We had not really made plans for one of the busiest dining days of the year and as we called around town waits were up to 3 hours long! Ouch. My finance called Aldos and asked if they were taking reservations and walk in's. They told us that they could take us at around 9:00, it was already 8:15, so we signed up. Upon arriving they still had a bit of a wait, but sitted us within a min or two.There was no 3 hour wait here. I was impressed. The food was great and so was the service. We had a night cap or coffee (Cain's my fav) and Tiramisu (was perfect-not to sweet). The night was romantic and hassle free. Thanks for a great night. We will come again soon.

Pros: Ambience and Food

Cons: where you may get sitted

We were two well-dressed ladies in our 60s and were seated in the glassed in porch area with other 7:00 pm guests. We didn't see the inner part of the restaurant so don't know of its ambiance. Our view was the outdoor seating area and the traffic on Fredericksburg Rd. At the end of the meal when we asked for take home boxes, the server asked if we wanted one bag for the boxes. I am married. She is not. Our demeanor had been professional throughout the meal. He was implying that we were a couple by asking if we wanted one bag. Normally I don't write reviews, but I was astounded that he would say that. My husband and I are never asked in advance, before boxes are brought, if we want one bag.

About the food: The menu is very short and limited. The bread served before dinner was too hard and coarse to enjoy. My simple pasta dish was very good, but that can be had anywhere. I will not go to Aldo's again.

spend you dinner money elsewhere!! well, we tried aldos for the second time, and, the wait staff was rude to us, again! we are both in our 40's and dress appropriately for dinner out, so i am not sure why we had two different waiters that were smart-mouthed and almost rude, first of all we ordered chilled wine; the bottle was brought to us and wine was poured..and the cold bottle sat on our table for almost 15 minutes, we finally asked for a ice bucket and one was brought. when we ordered our meal the waiter stuck(yes, stuck) the menus right up into my husbands face my husband said i know what i want to order, you really don't need to do that. at the salad course, the waiter came to my left and cracked black pepper on the salad, then asked my husband(who was on my right) if he wanted some, he said yes, then this waiter reached right across my face with his arm to grind my husbands pepper and i said , please don't do that!! and i pushed his arm away, he should have gone around the table ,not reached right in front of me. good waitstaff knows better than to do these things! i suspect that if you come in there with a large party, or are VERY well dressed, and a regular, the service would be better,and i find it very interesting that at the very end of the meal, all of a sudden the waiters (on both occasions) got much more friendly ...can you spell tip-time??. needless to say, we do not plan to return, there are much better italian places to dine in san antonio

Pros: good foot

Cons: bad service

Food was good but our server was not very helpful or prompt. He took too long to take our order. We asked for a wine menu and he only told us two wines they offerred and did not bring us a wine menu. The food was good we just had a terrible server. I also did not appreciate how disrespectful they were when I walked in and one of the wait staff looked at me up and down never even greeted me--you figure that one out.

The staff at Aldo's has always gone above and beyond in making the dining experience wonderful. For my graduation dinner, I made reservations for 16 people. At no extra charge, and without me having to ask, the staff at Aldo's cordoned off a part of the restaurant for my special party. To top it off, the piano player serenaded us with all of our favorite requests. The food is to die for and the ambience is so soft and magical that you forget where you are. Everyone is treated like royalty when they arrive and they feel like family when they leave. Do everything possible to visit Aldo's!

I eat at this restaurant every time I'm in San Antonio. They have a very elegant atmosphere, yet a relaxed environment. Waitstaff are prompt, courteous, and non-intrusive. As a business woman travelling by myself, I appreciate excellent restaurants that do not take it amiss when a woman is dining independently. I have yet to order a dish I was not happy with. Definitely a 10 on all counts.

I have been dining at Aldo's for nearly 20 years and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious, waiters are prompt and courteous and atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. A good romantic restaurant as well.

It may seem an anomaly, but some of the best Italian restaurants in San Antonio aren't run by Italians at all. Over the years, Aldo Ghaffari and various family members have established an improbable Italian restaurant dynasty in the city,…
