Great little restaurant in an old house surrounded by the burgeoning San Antonio Medical Center. Tablecloth restaurant without the tablecloth price. Very good, though not exceptional, Italian food. I really enjoy their lighter fares, however, such as the De La Casa. This dish is light and airy with cold pasta as the centerpiece. The lasagne is good, though not exceptional.... More

This hidden gem with stunning grounds is worth getting away from downtown for! Obscured by trees, you immediately see the lush grounds once you pass beyond the perimeter. Porch dining is my recommendation, to enjoy the beauty of the gardens. Impeccable formal service and ambiance, with food to match! Enjoy wine with this dinner!

Today I decided to surprise my wife with a wonderful dinner at a seemingly “high end” Italian restaurant for her birthday. I placed the reservation via OpenTable a few days prior (The staff read the OpenTable notes about it being my wife’s birthday which was nice considering many restaurants using OpenTable do not read reservation notes.). We arrived about 40... More

I met a friend for lunch, and she ordered the daily special and I ordered spaghetti and meat sauce. The bread and garlic/oil dipping sauce was wonderful. Our salad was typical but good, and her meal was delicious. However, I was disappointed in my meat sauce. The meat sauce was runny and lacking in flavor. Mine beats theirs hands down.... More

Where do I start? The upscale wait staff and Aldo himself working to treat you like royalty? The trinkets of deliciousness such as the Salad which isn't a salad at all. It has a couple of triangles of wonderful mozzarella cheese, hearts of palm, angel hair pasta drizzled with garlic butter topped with a good helping of fresh crab meat... More

Not the easiest place to find ... Hidden by shrubs and trees we thought we were at a residence. Staff was attentive but poliely didn't hover. We were a group of former coworkers who had years of events to catch up on. Wine list was extensive and a smidge expensive. Food was exceptional and authentic, as the one Italian coworker... More

Impeccable ambiance, superb formal service! I sat out on the enclosed porch where I could admire the beautiful gardens. This is definitely the place for special occasions, with everything scratch made and very tasty.

We had the pollo parmigiana and pollo piccata, both the quantity and quality were great. The best part was the service by Ernesto who made our entire dinner enjoyable.

I had dinner with my mother and grandmother at Aldo's. I had never been before, though I had passed by this icon near the medical center for decades.

Service was slow and surly, wine pours were stingy, wine list was limited, food was salty and incredibly overpriced. The two stars are for the building, which is very cool.
