We ordered pizza to go and fried calamari to go. We were very disappointed. What do you do when you have it home and it is barely edible with minuscule amounts of topping. Aldo's was always our number one choice for pizza but no more....More

Great family restaurant! Kids loved the pizza and adults loved the fish. Even offer Gluten Free options.

Good Italian food even better atmosphere when they have live music. When the music was playing people were dancing and having a great time. You ca get pizza all the way to a full Italian meal. After dinner go next door for gelato

One if not only Italian restaurants we could find on Block Island. Most other restaurants have similar items. Food was average. We enjoyed a very pleasant evening here when they had a musician performing music from the 60ies!

Good old school Italian food. I don't often feel like hot pasta and heavy food when I'm on the Block but when its a rainy miserable day it feels good and homey here. The food is good and old fashion Italian.

Casual, fun, Italian restaurant. Nice outdoor seating. New Haven pizza is better, but no pizza us ever as good!

Went here for dinner our second night on the Island. The shrimp scampi was delicious and our waiter was wonderful, very attentive and helpful. Would definitely recommend eating here.
