With stunning views of the Saugatuck River from two levels and a sleek, contemporary interior, guests of Acqua can experience the sophistication of Manhattan from the comfort of Main Street in the charming coastal town of Westport, Connecticut. Simple, rustic dishes lovingly prepared, decadent dessert souffles, and a superb wine list are the hallmarks of this premiere Mediterranean bistro.

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.

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.

Had dinner here and i have to say that this restaurant has legs! I haven't dined here in years since there are so many choices in town but i had to reserve last minute for a party of 4 on a Friday night and got a table online. Although they didn't seem to have it in the book when we... More

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.

I ate here twice in one month - once for lunch and once for dinner. Both experiences were very good. They have a super wine list, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was very yummy! We had a variety of appetizers, salads, and entrees and everyone was more than happy!

We’ve been there with our two kids after a long flight. Although the restaurant has a nice ambient and the staff was very friendly, due to jetlag, we could not stay that long. We had ordered different seafood, calamari and pasta, and it was just simply said, very good & tasty. All in all a nice restaurant with good food... More
