First time event to this restaurant. It was recommended by friends. Given we are still dealing with the pandemic it was a nice dinner.

Service and food is outstanding. Every meal we have had there is better than the last. The goal cheese brushetta is to die for. Best Italian around!

We love Aliano’s and wanted to share with our friends. While the food was good, it took a very long time to arrive and the service was just okay. My husband’s smoky old fashioned (which he orders every time we visit) took a long time to arrive and didn’t have the flavor for which he has become accustomed. While the bruschetta was good, the tongs it was served with were very hard to maneuver and I ended up with most of the topping on the table. Since there aren’t table cloths or paper, I couldn’t scoop it back up to put back on the bread.

While we will be back, we were disappointed that it wasn’t as impressive a visit for our friends.

We had a terrible experience at Alianos. Service was bad and they messed up on a couple orders that we had. Couple of the girls had to wait an extra 20 to 25 minutes to get there order while others had already received their order. Be careful there. If you bring your own dessert they do a $20 cutting fee which is absolutely ridiculous. The waitress originally told us it was five dollars and all of a sudden appears on our bill is $20. Finally the manager did take it off the bill but I doubt if we’ll be back to that restaurant

2nd visit here for birthday celebration. Service was very slow due to being understaffed. Food was bland. 1st experience was good that's why we came back. This visit ruined it for me. It's unfortunate, but will not go back.

Had a delicious dinner with friends. I enjoyed chicken Marcella and it was fabulous along with the mushroom risotto that comes with it. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert but they looked good too

We had a wonderful meal celebrating Mother’s Day early at Aliano’s Restaurant. The calamari and fried artichoke appetizers were excellent!! The spicy calamari sauce was a nice surprise. The sangria flight was fun. The Chicken Marsala, tetrazzini, tortellini and halibut special were all very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed the tiramisu, flourless chocolate cake and cannoli for dessert. The service was excellent!!

My husband and I always love a nice dinner at Aliano’s. The outdoor dining area is very nice and inviting, however, it is very loud. We weren’t expecting live music (which was excellent)but, it made conversation nearly impossible. Between the speaker volume and others shouting across tables it made for a frustrating evening.

Food was very good as usual, unfortunately our waitress seem to rush, and my wife’s order was wrong. She offered to change, but everyone else was eating so she kept the wrong dinner.

Pet peeve #1.......the food for 4 diners does not arrive at the same time! One person at our table did not receive his dinner until the rest of us were done. Our waitress gave us a lot of excuses....when she would stop by. She delivered the wrong drinks and then never came back to see if we wanted another. The service was awful. And, aren’t restaurants open now? Why on earth was everyone sitting in a tent??? We were all very disappointed in Alianos and don’t know if we will ever return. However the food was very good. For all our trouble, the one diner was offered a dessert! Really? That’s it? They should have comped his dinner that came late. He was rushing to eat cause the rest of us were finished.

Always love our meals at Aliano’s! It’s cozy and the food is wonderful, the staff is always amazing (thanks Mallory!), and their outdoor patio is second to none in the area.
Order the rigatoni, eggplant parm, salmon, or really anything on the menu. And be sure to grab a glass of Italian red wine while you’re at it!

We have been to Aliano's many times but this time there was music that was blasting so loud we couldn't have a conversation with our friends we brought there for the first time. They were short on servers so we should have left but thought we'd just order quickly and go for drinks elsewhere afterwards but we weren't served until 9:30pm. (We arrived at 7:45pm). We will not go back.
