Always, always, a great meal.

We love Acqua. It has always been very good, and it seems to have gotten better! Either of the two chicken dishes are my favorites. Halibut and Branzino also very tasty. Always great service and a cool atmosphere.

We had Mother's Day Brunch at Acqua! The meal started with a delicious ciabatta bread that was baked that morning. Appetizers included scrumptious mussels and refreshing salad. Their pancakes were the fluffiest I have ever had in my life, and the eggs benedict was off the charts! Other entrees included Faroe Island Salmon and filet mignon, which were also cooked... More

I came here for a birthday and promotion celebratory dinner and was pleasantly surprised. My date and I sat at a nice circular table in the second dining room upstairs. It gave us a nice perspective over the restaurant and had a balcony behind us which was a cool feature. The staff here is really great, everyone was super nice... More

We had the mediterranean sampler and the salmon...excellent dishes and excellent presentation!!! Congratulations to the Executive Chef and Management and Staff. Bit noisy place but that's ok. If you want to quiet area one could eat downstairs... will definitely be back.

Great for lunch or dinner - food and service is great - you can sit outside in the warmer weather or downstairs by the bar which is a little more informal than upstairs - they do have a "scary" elevator should you need to use one!

Acqua continues to present good food in a nice atmosphere and a reasonable price compared to others in this class. From the wood burning oven that produces pizza and a 'fan' favorite chicken to their fish and pasta and other dishes, this Mediterranean style restaurant should please most.

Post Thanksgiving dinner with all the family. Food was light and fresh. The room was quiet enough for soft conversation. Service was attentive but not over-bearing. A delightful evening that didn't break the bank.
