CAFFE ALDO LAMBERTI MENTIONED IN THE BIG REVEAL
South Jersey Magazine writes:
Not everyone throwing a gender reveal party opts to disclose the sex of their baby via cake or frosting color. Some don't even want to know the news beforehand, preferring to experience the element of surprise with everyone else. Rob and Remy Maaddi, Mantua residents and reality TV stars whose gender reveal party was broadcast on WeTV during a special episode of the Marriage Boot Camp spinoff Remy & Rob, chose to reveal the gender of their twin girls by releasing pink balloons from a neutral colored box during a gathering at Caffe Aldo Lamberti in Cherry Hill. "It was my first pregnancy so I wanted to do something special," Remy says. "I knew it was a new trend, and since we were having twins and everyone was dying to know the gender, I thought it would be a great way to let our friends and families know."

A RECENT GUEST REVIEWS CAFFE ALDO LAMBERTI
"While it's categorized as an Italian restaurant, it really has a large selection of amazing fresh seafood. In fact, everyone in our party of five got non-Italian style seafood. Everything was amazing from grilled octopus to crab legs, lobster and many types of fresh fish. I saw fresh oysters on other tables that looked fantastic as well. Good Italian restaurants are hard to find, but it's hard to find a good seafood place these days, and Caffe Aldo Lamberti really shines. From what I saw on other tables, the Italian dishes also looked good, so I'm sure you wouldn't go wrong ordering pasta or some other traditional Italian specialty here either. The restaurant was beautiful, very light and open, the noise level was good and the service was impeccable. I'm not in this area very often, but I can't wait to come back so I can eat here again."

As written in South Jersey Magazine:
Caffe Aldo Lamberti
2011 Route 70 W., Cherry Hill
A Cherry Hill mainstay, this Italian restaurant from the Lamberti family has served Neapolitan cuisine in style for more than 20 years. But that's not to say they've gone stale: Caffe Aldo Lamberti's (or simply Aldo's to the locals) has brought consistency and creativity to its posh dining room and bar, earning awards for the extensive wine list, too.
Vibe: Upscale and chic
Don't Miss: The stylish indoor/outdoor bar and patio, with al fresco dining in season
Best Value: Sunday dinners include a family-style menu with classic dishes that feed two-three diners for only a few dollars more.
Best Table: Anything by the large picture windows in the main dining room.
Can't-Miss Dish: Caffe Aldo Lamberti is known for its fresh seafood, including the pan-seared Chilean sea bass, carefully fileted and served with caramelized leeks in a citrus-wine sauce.
Chef Recommends: Chef Michael Ferguson recommends any of the fresh fish specials-delivered daily-but particularly the whole fillets served tableside.
Regular's Choice: Savvy diners choose the zucchini crabcakes starter, where jumbo lumb crab meat is gently formed into cakes with barely any filler (just herbs and spices) and then crusted with zucchini.
Sweet Ending: Most sweets are made in house, but servers recommend the dense and indulgent chocolate-hazelnut Frangelico torte, drizzled in dark chocolate sauce.
Dynamic Drink: Take a sip of the Marchesi specialty cocktail, layered with organic cucumber vodka, a splash of French aperitif Lillet Blanc, St. Germain elderflower liqueur and lemon juice.
Pro Tip: The new wireless wine list allows diners to quickly identify the perfect bottle of vino.

FEATURED IN THE COURIER POST: FOR KIDS, LEARNING PROPER MANNERS INSTILLS CONFIDENCE
As featured in the Courier Post on March 16, 2010, excerpts from the article:
On a recent afternoon, in the wine cellar of Caffe Aldo Lamberti in Cherry Hill, a scene unfolded which would have given great delight to every adult who hopes to never have another meal torpedoed by unmannerly kids.
Seated around a table, dressed in what adults might call "business casual" were children who ranged in age from 7 to 13, all of them also decked out in hats, jewelry and other grown-up props supplied by a soft-spoken woman with the manner of a caring friend.
That woman, Hilary Brennan, has launched Socially Savvy, a company dedicated to civility not just for adults, but also for children. And on this afternoon, her mission was simple: She was hoping to show the children who were in her tutelage for two short hours that manners can actually be fun in a class called Dynamic Dining: Hip Etiquette for Boys and Girls.
