We stopped here for lunch on our way to Cooperstown and had an amazing lunch. Excellent pizza and wings, and the service was outstanding. We will be back soon for dinner!

Amazing Italian food! All of their food is absolutely heavenly, and the wonderful people there are so attentive and kind! Their pizzas are to die for...fresh and high quality ingredients and toppings, and I've honestly never had eggplant cooked to such delicious perfection. The menu has a fantastic variety of dishes! If you're traveling on Rt 81 in NY it's... More

We live in New Jersey and a definite must stop is Aiello's Ristorante. They have the best chicken parm dinner we have had, and the bread is so good. We top it off with to-go cannolis because we are so stuffed from the dinner, but can't miss out on a cannoli. Also enjoyed panini, and the many other specialties Aiello's... More

I don't know where to begin. We came to find this place because Aiello is a family friend and our intention was to have lunch and text my friend a picture of a menu. That all stopped as soon as we walked into Aiello's and heard people speaking in the Sicilian dialect very similar to mine. Let's get to the... More

My family gets here occasionally as a treat, because it is always excellent. Classic Italian food, done exceptionally well. Family owned and it shows. Gracious and attentive staff and owners. If you want an Italian experience with freshly prepared food. Do yourself a favor and stop here.

Service was good. However my husband ordered the Alfredo with shrimp which was $5.00 extra. The shrimp in the Alfredo sauce still had the tails on. He had messy fingers in order to get the tails off. My husband said something to the waitress who immediately responded that leaving the tails on and getting messy hands was the fun of... More

In 35 years that's the only way I have served shrimp and I believe I'm not the only restaurant that does that, we use a good sized shrimp and the Alfredo sauce is made with parmigiano reggiano which is not inexpensive I don't thing we deserve the 2 star review for this situation. I do have one customer that he... More

AIello's stands in the small town of Whitney Point as a better restaurant than you would expect to find there. The Southern Italian fare is very good. The portion sizes are sufficient to allow you to bring home enough for another meal. Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly, meat balls were very good, eggplant prepared expertly, and the decor was... More

The Aiello Family moved to America from Sicily, Italy. Calogero (Charlie) was born in the village of Partannaand Vincenzo (Vinnie) was born in Alba, in the Piedmont area of northern Italy.Having grown up in and around restaurants and in Mama’s always busy kitchen, the family moved to Whitney Point where Vito (Papa) opened Aiello’s Ristorante in May of 1982 for his two sons to operate.The friendliness of Whitney Point has allowed Aiello’s to grow from a small pizzeria to the comfortable full service restaurant you enjoy today.It is important to us that you know we use fresh herbs, spices, cheeses and imported 100% olive oil in our kitchen. The finest raw ingredients we can find assure you of the highest quality experience.We enjoy getting to know our guests. Thank you for visiting with our family and we hope to see you again soon.
