I visited Aqua Ristorante yesterday and I had to write a review straight away. The food was amazing, authentic Italian dishes, well priced and the portions were considerably larger than I expected. We had complimentary bread and oil on arrival and the service was outstanding. All of the staff were very pleasant, and it had a friendly atmosphere. I highly... More

Really good menu and obviously an excellent chef. The food was delivered promptly and is delicious and well-presented. The restaurant is let down by relatively small things that could so easily be improved. There is a small cloakroom there - but no one offered to take our coats (come on, it's a restaurant, not a cafe!). The service is, putting... More

This restaurant has been transformed into a lovely independent Italian restaurant . Great food at a reasonable price. Not a huge menu but certainly enough to choose from. Weekends are manic for the waiting staff , but that is testimony to the good reputation of the restaurant. The only negative are that the tables are a little close together so... More

Overall ok entertainment was great on the night which made up for the average food I would expect an Italian restaurant to have at least one or two options of pasta that are home made, none of many options were. Scallops were good and pasta with chilli and prawns was also good, my pasta was in a tomato sauce or... More

When asked where the veal came from that was on the menu the staff admitted that they had no idea. All that they could tell us was that the veal came sliced up in plastic bags. Staff training needs to be improved. Food average.

Being a regular customer of Aqua at Welwyn, we thought we would try the Hertford Aqua. Maybe we hit on a bad night as during the evening only two other tables were occupied. Strangely my wife and I were taken through by a waiter in tatty jeans and a hooded sweatshirt to a table in the back corner of the... More

Hertford has it's fair share of good places to eat and Aqua has to be one of them. Only been there the once but found it to be very pleasant with good quality if not spectacular food and a good atmosphere helped I think by being jammed solid when we went. Only bad thing, and I hoped this was an... More
