Delicious food, wonderful friendly service! Absolutely would recommend to anyone who loves Italian food. 10/10 would come again!

This week, we visited Aldo's for the first time. We'll definitely be back. The chicken marsala was delicious, with just the right amount of gravy. Since it is Northern Italian, it is slightly more savoury than we are used to - different but fabulous. Everything...was cooked perfectly, the chicken was beaten thin like it should be, and the crumb was light and tasty. The salad was colourful and had a nice dressing, and the crumbed mushrooms were great. You could tell this was an experienced chef.More

My Dad and I came in for lunch and the service was great from the moment we walked in till the moment we walked out. Susan was very friendly, she sat down with me to find out about my eyelash business Lash L’Amour and even...took some business cards from me to hand out. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Aldo even came out to the table to make sure the food was to standards! Even though it was quite busy the staff still made time to have a chat and get to know us. Food was excellent, great portions along with an affordable price. Will definitely be back.More

Thankyou Dennis. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. I think the blackboard special on the day you came to our restaurant was pappardelle pasta with spinach, ricotta & chicken. Topped with new season asparagus. The dish was deliciously exciting. We have...More

Only 20 covers, but one of the best restaurants we've ever been to. You can't expect a full menu in a small restaurant, but what Aldo offers is done to perfection, from traditional spaghetti Bolognese to rib eye, not to mention the limoncello baba!! All...served with a fabulously friendly welcome. Can't recommend Aldo's too highly.More

We popped into Aldo’s with no reservation on the hope to get a nice meal to end our holiday . We had the best service from start to finish and the food was amazing !!! I definitely had food envy of my hubby and daughters...pasta with the penne and ravioli but my fettuccine was just as delicious 😋. A cosy clean restaurant and was so nice to have aldo come and check on how our meals were... when do you ever get that !!We would absolutely return and was a lovely way to end our holiday lots of thanks !!!

...and blissfully walked out with food comas! We stumbled upon this place and decided to give it a chance after seeing positive reviews online. Safe to say that we were not disappointed! Susan was super welcoming from the moment we stepped in. From there on,...the service was continually friendly - towards us and other patrons as well. It’s an adorable little place - well fitted, clean, bright, and you can tell they really care for the business. Aldo’s pasta dishes were exactly what we were hoping for on a chilly day - no unnecessary embellishments; just straight, good pasta. The bolognese was no frills with a generous helping of sauce and olive oil. The real star was the creamy mushroom (spaghetti, not penne - they gladly let us swap) though. Piping hot, lots of mushrooms, and not heavy and sickly like some cream sauces can be. The tiramisu at the end was the perfect finish - creamy and decadent (and slightly boozy, which was appreciated! 😆) Thank you both for a lovely end to our day trip. We live about 40 mins away in Auckland but can’t wait to bring family and friends in the future!More
