Aldo's has a comfortable atmosphere inside and a people watching patio outside. We enjoy their menu with the good Italian fare. Decor is charming and service is good.

The restaurant looks good in and out but it smells kind of like a greasy spoon inside. I suspect patio seating must be nice but it is getting cold lately. Our waitress was dragging her feet with zero personality and the good was sort of...More

The angle hair pomodoro was outstanding, probably the best I've had. I started with a cesar salad and it was excellent..so great food. Service was just so-so. Only one server and she was overworked.

Pretty patio, decent food and prices, friendly service. We added scallops to the purple kale salad and they were mini, like the size of chickpeas. For an extra $5, a few chickpea-sized scallops is not worth it.

This place is not great. If you're looking for a good tourist trap on State Street, then this is your place. Average food, not great service. If you're looking for Italian, go to Ca Dario, Arnoldi's, Trattoria Mollie, Tre Lune, or Via Maestra instead.

Great location, Restaurant just on state street in near santa barbara downtown. However, the menu at the entrance which you can check before you enter the place was showing lower pricing as the menu in the restaurant.
