So romantic it's almost corny, this tree-shaded house on a hill delivers spot-on service and flawless Italian classics. – The Scene
With lush landscaping outside and homey charm within, the restaurant draws wealthy retired folks as well as couples on special-occasion dates. Dressed neatly in ties and slacks, the waiters are mostly middle-aged men, true professionals who fuss about little details such as moving the sugar closer to your coffee cup.
Topped with arugula and shaved parmesan, the slices of beef tenderloin on the carpaccio di filetto appetizer are so razor-thin that it can be hard to scoop them up off the plate, but it's worth the effort. Snapper di Aldo, owner Aldo Ghaffari's signature dish, is a delicate fillet served with artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and tomatoes in a white wine sauce. Beef lovers can't go wrong with the scallopine caprusso, a tender cut of veal smothered in a pleasantly tangy marsala sauce and mushrooms on a bed of spinach. Remember to leave a little room for the light, fluffy tiramisu.
Aldo's – I eat at this restaurant every time I'm in San Antonio. They have a very elegant atmosphere, yet a relaxed environment. Waitstaff are prompt, courteous, and non-intrusive. As a business woman travelling by myself, I appreciate excellent restaurants that do not take it amiss when a woman is dining independently. I have yet to order a dish I was not happy with. Definitely a 10 on all counts.
Always Outstanding – I have been dining at Aldo's for nearly 20 years and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious, waiters are prompt and courteous and atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. A good romantic restaurant as well.
