Closed for Easter Break

As I’ve been saying for weeks now, the curbside model isn’t profitable for every restaurant. In fact, at Aldo’s, we’ve lost money most days that we’ve operated under the curbside-only model, particularly in the last week.

We had already planned to close for a few days around the Memorial Day holiday. After reviewing our recent sales, we’ve made the decision to extend that closure until June 5, 2020 to allow ourselves some time to think creatively with our team, customers, and city and state leadership about ways to improve profitability and create a sustainable and durable business model that works for all of us.

You may recall we took a two week Easter break in April (reopening on April 20). Once again, we look forward to reopening after this short furlough, stronger and better than ever.

Aldo’s has been a mainstay in Baltimore’s Little Italy for over 20 years, since 1998. We will be back on June 5, 2020 at 5pm to serve you once again. We’re very much looking forward to it!

Thank you!
Sergio Vitale

Italian Cuisine dish in BaltimoreItalian Cuisine Menu


Concerned with an authentic and faithful interpretation of regional Italian cuisine and influenced by his native Southern Italian experience, Chef / Owner Aldo Vitale’s culinary philosophy centers chiefly on the premise of simplicity.

Using only fresh, seasonal ingredients, his subtle and delicately-balanced style of cuisine is influenced greatly by Chef Aldo’s belief that the inherent virtues of a dish’s dominant flavors should be forthright and clear on the palate, while at the same time in harmony with the few, carefully-selected ingredients that compliment the dish.

Chef Aldo’s honest approach to food and its preparation allows Guests to enjoy a dining experience that leaves them feeling satisfied rather than overindulged due to the excessive use of heavy ingredients such as cream and butter — ingredients that mask the true essence of a carefully-balanced meal.

His preference for natural and organic ingredients leads to close working relationships with local farmers and purveyors to ensure each ingredient meets Chef Aldo’s exacting standards. A menu that changes regularly to take full advantage of seasonal ingredients such as Italian white truffles from Alba also allows Chef Aldo the opportunity to use a variety of house-made products such as house-cured pancetta and soppressata, house-pickled vegetables, and herbs that are grown on premises, at his residence, or by farmers that Chef Aldo has personally selected and with whom he has a close rapport.
