Old World Italy is Alive and Well at Aldo’s Italian Kitchen

House-made pasta. Freshly caught seafood. Traditional lasagna. There's something new every night at Aldo's Italian Kitchen in Alexandria. These daily-changing specials are in addition to the everyday lineup of classic Italian dishes served all day long.

At 4 p.m., Aldo's begins to dish out dinner apps and entrees, such as the mozzarella fritta. This crispy eat features fresh Italian mozzarella cheese coated in panko and thyme and deep-fried, accompanied by tomato sauce for dipping. Nibble on the mozzarella fritta as you decide between the daily special, a pasta dish, and a meat or seafood entree. The classic chicken parmigiana is a popular option, but you can also take a fork to shrimp scampi, spaghetti and meatballs, or linguine with clams. In the near future, Aldo's Italian Kitchen will also begin to serve thin-crust pizzas with toppings like chicken and pesto or fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella.
