Patrons beware. As a former employee I can say most if not all accounts made so far are true. First, salads after made by a server is scrutinized by the manager, after which time he picks over it till he's satisfied the customer didn't

My husband and I have eaten at Aldo's on several occasions because it is close by. The food can be great sometimes and at other times not so great, which is too bad. However, the garlic rolls in butter are awesome. The restaurant has nice decor and the customer service is great.

It's nice to find a quiet restaurant these days, especially if it has great food. Lunch is reasonable; dinner a little pricey. Have had several functions in their private rooms - always well done!

Aldo's offers a good menu - seafood, pasta, veal, chicken and steaks. They have a decent wine list and full bar. Also, private dining rooms are available for parties. They also have good promotional dinners- Five course meal for two with wine.

I visited Aldo's on Saturday night as a "date night" with my wife. I have to say that I had one of the worst dining experiences that I've ever had. The food was incredibly deficient in every aspect. There was not a single part of my meal that was enjoyable in the least.

To start with, we had "crab" stuffed mushrooms. As I'm eating one of the 4 tiny mushrooms, I notice a piece of imitation crab. I point it out to my wife & she says that she hadn't noticed any imitation crab. 2 bites later she turns to me & says, "I think I just got a piece too." These 4 tiny mushrooms were accompanied by a bowl of rock hard stale garlic rolls.

After the mushrooms, we were brought a salad which literally had a puddle of salad dressing in the bowl. There was enough dressing for 10 salads in our salad bowl.

I ordered the "chef's special" which I was told was grouper with lobster sauce. Since we both really wanted seafood that night I ordered it instead of the chicken parm I had planned on. After about an hour my entree shows up & it is small fish with no seasoning (except for a few pepper flakes) and a sauce served on the side which was more of a paste than a sauce. The sauce was terrible and I could see why they didn't put it on my fish. What really got me though was the fish was NOT grouper at all but rather tilapia.

Upon calling the owner over, he proceeded to yell & point at my wife. His response was that "I wouldn't cheat you" & "I've been in business for 27 years". When I mentioned that the crab was imitation he responded with, "if I served real crab I'd have to charge twice as much." I then pointed out on the menu where it said "crab meat stuffed" and no where was the word imitation. He offered no apology just kept insisting that he was justified in serving us food that was not what he claimed it to be and then charge as if it were grouper/crab. I had a $125 tab for "fake" food and a bottle of wine.

DON'T EAT HERE, YOU & YOUR WALLET WILL REGERT IT.

Aldo's is an institution in Tucker. We and members of our family have dined there occasionally through the years... always finding it enjoyable. But it did not live up to its reputation when we dined there Saturday night. The restaurant was not crowded, and the reasons soon became evident. The inexperienced and poorly-trained server was sincere but inept. He told us Aldo's had advised him not to quit his day job (musician). Aldo's has a full bar, but the man was clueless about beverages and got the order wrong in spite of our meticulous instructions. When we ordered appetizers he said "That will take a long time." It did and was not worth it. The three little stuffed mushrooms and four little mozzarella sticks ($5.95 each) looked lonely on their plates. The server came to our table about 20 minutes later and said he could not remember whether he had served our salads. He had not and brought the salads with the entrees... telling us the food would get cold if he held it up. The spaghetti and meatballs ($10.95) was the best food of the evening. The veal picatta ($14.95) was also judged excellent. However, the veal romano ($15.95) described as "veal cutlets wrapped with Italian ham and mozzarella cheese, baked then topped with our marsala wine sauce with fresh mushrooms" was a disaster. It was a single blackened cutlet topped with a slice of mozzarella cheese. The whole thing was covered up with a mountain of sauteed mushrooms. The Italian ham and marsala wine sauce were not evident, and what was there was too salty and blackened to eat. But, the server did not remove the entree from our bill. Many restaurants would have comped the dessert at least, but that did not happen. When Atlanta has as many fine Italian restaurants as it does, there is no reason to subject yourself and your palate to the unpredictable service and food at Aldo's.

Pros: Parking

Cons: Unpredictable food and service

Aldo's has been serving Italian dishes in the Tucker area for years, but is a nondescript restaurant tucked into a strip mall. The seafood/pasta combinations are especially good; be sure to try the crab puff pastry, which is a flaky pastry filled with crab and cream sauce.

PROS: Good food, especially seafood
CONS: a bit pricy for what you get
