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.

Love this place

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

I was here in 2012, the restaurant was packed, the food was good, the atmosphere was fine. A friend suggested we go there for dinner recently. It was a Thursday night. It was unusually empty for a Thursday night in Westport. The first thing I noticed was an odor that was trying to be masked. My guess is it may... More

Express lunch is wonderful. Quick service, nice menu, reasonably priced. Very convenient to Westport shopping. My "go to" restaurant for a quality lunch when I don't have a lot of time.

The food here was good, and the atmosphere was very nice. I would have appreciated a more extensive and thought-out cocktail menu, though.

This downtown Westport restaurant is a favorite of ours; it has several very pleasant areas to dine in: a cozy downstairs bar area that's not too noisy for conversation, a sidewalk terrace, an upstairs dining room with french windows, and, our favorite spot in chilly weather, an upstairs bar where you can watch some dishes cooking in the pizza oven....
