These are made-from-scratch dishes that are dressed to impress: think so homemade, the sauces are crafted to perfection and to order.For over two decades, Aldo's Italian has been wining and dining northern Atlantans with rustic Italian fare, customer service warmer than an Italian grandmother and downright addictive garlic rolls. These are made-from-scratch dishes that are dressed to impress: think so homemade, the sauces are crafted to perfection and to order. (Sans the marinara—the chefs aren’t miracle workers here. Everybody knows that stuff’s gotta simmer.)
One of those homemade sauces in particular, a creamy, slightly spicy amaretto sauce gracing the Disaronno plate, still has us licking our chops. Also worth drooling over: popular classics like chicken Romano with delectable mushroom Marsala sauce, the posillipo — a generous bowl of fresh clams, mussels and shrimp slow-simmered in a white wine sauce — and tender, rich veal scaloppini in buttery white wine piccata sauce. And for quality accompaniment? Aldo's has a full bar and a solid wine list longer than our right arm. Combine that roster of fine Italian vino with the rustic Old World fare (and the creamy, cinnamon-y Bananas Foster dessert flambéed right before your very table), and you have the formula for 22 years of Buon Appetito!, Aldo's-style.
