It's a tidy property, the staff are friendly the wine list is smallish but ok, and the food was fine but not exciting.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
