Our first day on BI, we stopped by for a quick, air conditioned lunch. Aldo's was just the ticket! Food was fresh & their red sauce was wonderful. I loved the eggplant parm! We ended up going back for dinner another evening.

We go to Aldo's when we are on island and have always had an enjoyable dining experience, until now. Seafood pasta was blah at best and thrown on the plate. Bread was like cardboard wonderbread, no taste. Eggplant also very bland. So many places to...More
