You know a restaurant is definitely worth checking out when it's featured on Guy Fieri's hit show on Food Network,…More "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." The loyal clientele has always been fond of Aldo's calamari and cioppino dishes. And since Fieri indulged in the very same seafood delicacies, the word is out on this local treasure. </p>
<p>In 1962, the Olivieri family began to write a chapter in Santa Cruz history. The business actually started as a bait shop on the harbor, but transformed into the kind of Santa Cruz institution that could fill a book with rich and colorful family stories. For a real treat, be sure to take a look at the back of an Aldo's menu for a slice of Americana. Even the pasta, sauces and bread are made fresh daily from Aldo's Bakery in Soquel. </p>
<p>Accentuated by an ideal location at the Santa Cruz Harbor, Aldo's embodies the taste and feel of Santa Cruz. This picturesque location offers a view of the ocean that stretches from the harbor to the horizon, with sunlight shimmering on the peaceful waters, rows of boats bobbing gently and a lighthouse in the distance. Ample patio dining accommodates up to 130 people. But Aldo's is more than just a famous seafood restaurant with a great view (don't be surprised if you find yourself sitting out on the deck for hours). Outdoor patio dining makes Aldo's the premier dog-friendly restaurant in town (for well-behaved dogs on a leash). The patio deck could also be your next destination for a catered event. </p>
