Best Southern Italian Dining in South Jersey

I have been coming here for 24 years and have never been disappointed. The menu has a lot of variety and is reasonably priced – you get a LOT of food for your money.

The staff is attentive and polite, and the owners are usually on hand and very welcoming. It’s no wonder they have so many repeat customers!

I personally love the seafood items, and my friends all agree that they have some of the best mussels we’ve ever had.

It can get pretty crowded on holidays and they don’t take reservations (except for very large parties).

All meals are served with garlic bread, soup and salad, and the meat dishes come with a side of pasta, too.

Salmon Rosata

I am not a big salmon fan in general, but I keep ordering it because the rosata sauce is so ridiculously good.

Cappellini Ariana

Cappellini with shrimp and scallops in the “della casa” sauce, which is a kind of creamy marinara. It’s just delicious.

Aldo's Juicy Garlic Bread

So addictive it’s dangerous.


Hard chocolate shell surrounding neopolitan ice cream, with a cherry in the center.

Calamari Fritti

Your typical fried calamari served with marinara sauce. Always hot and crispy.

Black Ravioli

You can get an appetizer portion or a dinner portion (served with soup and salad), both come with the delicious creamy marinara sauce.

Mussels Red

Large portion of big, tender, beautiful black mussels. The sauce is so good you will be soaking it up with garlic bread when all the mussels are gone.

The white sauce is pretty good too, but the red is just out of this world.

Aldo's Calamari

I had never had calamari that wasn’t fried before – this has completely changed my attitude toward squid!

The appetizer is just the calamari in the delicious sauce, with spinach and mozzarella cheese. It’s good with a bit of bread.

The dinner portion is served over linguine and comes with a soup and salad. The last time I had it, the portion was so big I ate it for lunch and dinner for the next two days!

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Simply delicious. It is not as spicy as other restaurants usually make it, so you may want to add some red pepper – I never do though.


I only ordered this once – the portion was so big I was almost intimidated when I saw it. Everything was delicious but I had to enlist the help of everyone at the table to even put a dent in it.

Been eating here for 20+ years

Cotardo's is one of our favorite restaurants and I've been eating there for 20+ years now. With each dinner entree you get Soup AND Salad plus a tasty garlic bread (free refils). That's usually enough to fill you up and make you happy…

This is a very cozy warm restaurant that really caters to your comfort! One of my husband's favorites from this place is the chicken parmigiana! The staff is friendly and the service is fast!

    While Italian cuisine involves many meats, cheeses, seafood, and vegetables, most of us associate Italian cuisine first and foremost with pasta. Pasta comes in many shapes and sizes, and each shape... read more
