Do yourself a favor -- skip this one

If I could save one person from going to this place by giving my opinion-- then i'd be glad to.
First of all, the reason this place called Garden Dining is because at the back there's one that is used for events. i cannot make a comment on that except to say if there's a party going on at this place, you can forget about getting any kind of service! The owner's attention is always focused on the party (bec they are paying more money, of course!)
He ignored other guest requests and complaints. He's all bout the dough.
My girlfriend had the veal and it was served dry and cold! Went here becuase of a good review about the veal and didnt realize till too late that the review was from a year ago! Fast forward to present day, this place and the food sucks! Oh and went here also because opentable had bonus points. Beware, that is a trap. They can't get people in the door so they're luring you with points and deals . This is not a good Italian Resto in the Chelsea/Gramercy area. There are waaaay better ones.

Had a WONDERFUL TIME

I must admit, I have been to many neighbrhood places in the GRAMERCY / CHELSEA area, and ALEO is a sleeper. I used Opentable and got 1000pts. I was amazed at the freshness of the plates and the people were so sweet and kind to us. I ate a special VEAL CHOP that was off the hook good. My girlfriend had a plate of pasta that was amazing. The server was a terrific young man who was so sincere that he would not let us buy a more expensive bottle of wine , instead he directed us to a less expensive better wine, and then gave us complimentary cordials at the end. ALEO we will be back.

Very dirty,roaches all over the place!!!

We went there for lunch last week with 3 other people,the restaurant was empty at 1:30 pm(wonder why?),the waitress looked she just came out the bed,and the red hair waiter was having shots behind the bar!(i love his job,free food,free booze)The appetizers came 45 minutes late,the waiters were hanging around and having more shots,includind the waitress,never checked on us,and under the plate was a roach crawling,i almost threw up...
Next table to us,had at list 3 roaches crawling between the silverware,the floor was so sticky,i think the water never touched that floor,since the restaurant was open!
Stay away from this place,very very dirty,smelly,food ok,but i better go to pizzeria,not worth the money,but we got the roaches as a bonus!!

Nice Spot...Great Food

I had my daughter's birthday party here awhile ago, about 40 guests. They did a great job. I know a few of my guests can be difficult, but they were very professional and kept everyone happy. The food was so good, they kept the drinks filled and everyone enjoyed. I couldn't be happier. So glad I picked this place!

Great for special occassions

I was coming to the city to celebrate my 23rd birthday and was looking for something a little special and saw that Aleo had very good reviews. My experience lived up to all the great reviews! Not only was the food great, but our waiter, Fabio, was honestly the most accommodating and friendly waiter I've ever had! He made it a point to chat with us and make us feel comfortable, and we even got lemoncello shots on the house at the end of the meal! What a great experience, it surely made my birthday that much more special! I would highly recommend Aleo for some classic Italian fare in a casual yet sophisticated atmosphere! I will definitely return on my next visit to the city!

Great Food, Great Service

We just got back from celebrating my mothers 65th birthday and it was so enjoyable. The outdoor garden was beautiful and made for an even greater atmosphere. The food was delicious, from the stuffed clams, to all the entrees and finally that ""light as a feather"" strawberry cheesecake to top it off! The staff was very friendly and very attentive.

My relatives were asking for business cards as they left. You can't miss with choosing Aleo for a great evening for any occassion!

Super espresso martini, super bar, super food, super time.

Check out the bar at this place if you just want to have a few drinks without the crowds and amateurs. A few of us just intended to have a few drinks after work, but we ended up ordering some appetizers and sandwiches from the bar menu, a hearty platter of meats and cheeses, some grilled tuna and chicken sandwiches, and lamb pitas that were over stuffed with the best tender lamb I ever had, which is why I went directly to the baby lamb chops when we decided to stay for dinner. We worked up quite an appetite after several really super martinis. My buddies had different pasta, all great stuff. The beauty of it, after we ate, we had martinis for dessert because they make this super espresso martini. I know what was in it becasue I asked the bartender before we left -- vanilla vodka, frangelica, baileys, kaluha and espresso. We go to this place at least a couple times a month, sometimes for lunch. I would rate the service and food super excellent. I ain't one for atmosphere, so I really couldn't tell you if the atmosphere is good. But I'm gonna say it again. Food and service super excellent.

Great outdoor ambiance

Discovering Aleo was lucky for us. We were driving by and decided to park the car in the garage right on the same street. Glad we found this restaurant! We?ve been back twice since. And we always sit in the outdoor garden. Pasta is creative with great tasting sauces, and this coming from a traditionalist who usually eats pasta with basic marinara. A must-have is the pasta with pancetta, peas, mushrooms and onions in a cream sauce. I've had it twice out of the three times I've been there, that's how much I enjoy it. You know how in some restaurants the pasta is doused in sauce. Not here. It's just enough sauce to cling to the pasta and other ingredients, and enough left at the bottom of the bowl (huge portion) to dip a little bread. Definitely try the calamari, either the stuffed or the almond encrusted for an appetizer. We tried both! Seafood dishes are great as well. Can't go wrong with any of them. Not big on wine, but my boyfriend is, and he thought the wine list was actually above average. The outdoor seating, which was enclosed because still cold outside, was kind of romantic because they have this waterfall. And the soft Italian music that was playing when we were there made it feel like you could have been in a romantic cafe in Italy. If you want to sit in the garden, definitely call for reservations. We didn't, but got lucky due to a cancelation. No matter where you sit, meal will be great, always has been for us. By the way, reason we give four stars is because nothing is ever perfect, but Aleo is close to it every time we go!
