waitstaff ruins a well-prepared meal twice!!
spend you dinner money elsewhere!! well, we tried aldos for the second time, and, the wait staff was rude to us, again! we are both in our 40's and dress appropriately for dinner out, so i am not sure why we had two different waiters that were smart-mouthed and almost rude, first of all we ordered chilled wine; the bottle was brought to us and wine was poured..and the cold bottle sat on our table for almost 15 minutes, we finally asked for a ice bucket and one was brought. when we ordered our meal the waiter stuck(yes, stuck) the menus right up into my husbands face my husband said i know what i want to order, you really don't need to do that. at the salad course, the waiter came to my left and cracked black pepper on the salad, then asked my husband(who was on my right) if he wanted some, he said yes, then this waiter reached right across my face with his arm to grind my husbands pepper and i said , please don't do that!! and i pushed his arm away, he should have gone around the table ,not reached right in front of me. good waitstaff knows better than to do these things! i suspect that if you come in there with a large party, or are VERY well dressed, and a regular, the service would be better,and i find it very interesting that at the very end of the meal, all of a sudden the waiters (on both occasions) got much more friendly ...can you spell tip-time??. needless to say, we do not plan to return, there are much better italian places to dine in san antonio
