These Italian dishes are fresh, and dressed to impress: think so homemade, the sauces are crafted to perfection, and to order. (Sans the marinara—the chef's aren’t miracle workers, here. Plus, everyone knows that stuff’s gotta simmer.)Aldo's Italian Restaurant, beckoning from a corner in Sandy Springs, has neither checkered tablecloths nor accordion serenade, and we're A-OK with that. It does boast, however, stellar spaghetti and oodles of other fresh Italian dishes that are dressed to impress: think so homemade, the sauces are crafted to perfection and to order. (Sans the marinara—the chefs aren’t miracle workers, here. Plus, everybody knows, that stuff’s gotta simmer.) Salivate over (not literally, please) popular classics like Chicken Romano with delectable mushroom Marsala sauce, or the creamy, cinnamon-y Bananas Foster, flambéed right before your very table. And for quality accompaniment? Aldo's has a full bar and a solid wine list, longer than our right arm. For two decades, this joint has been wining and dining northern Atlantans, buon-appetito style. And now that the ATL clime has graced us with tolerable temps, you can try out the sleek patio.
Aldo’s Restaurant owner, Masoud, will learn your name, joke with/at you and check in every so often to make sure you're still laughing your manicotti off. And you will. This spiffy place is family-away-from-family friendly. Aldo’s is equipped with ample seating and private rooms for your round-table discussions. Yep. This is the place for you and your fellow groupies to gather, plan and dig into some excellent Italian comfort food. What’s that? Why, of course, you can have the last meatball. No, we won’t push it toward you with our nose—we'll be too busy wine-sipping and tucking into a pile of Penne ala Casoli.
