Rustic Italian at its best

Once in a while you are lucky to find a restaurant with great food, & a wonderfully friendly staff that makes you want to hurry back. We always look forward to dining in this cozy atmosphere.

This is our go-to place for a sumptuous dinner. The raviolo is a favorite, as are many of the small plates. Relaxing, inventive, great service, good advice.

I would have given "excellent" rating except for some timing issues. We went here at 6:00 before an 8:00 theatre curtain 10 minutes away. While the waiter was attentive when he was with us, even though he acknowledged at the outset our time parameters, he did not come back to take our orders until after 6:30. While the kitchen was...

Acero fits and advances the neighborhood vibe, being borderline trendy with sincere attention devoted to the quality and craft of the food. Our party enjoyed a range of dishes from traditional, hand-made pastas (mine was enriched with a boar ragu! That's not an every-day dish!), black cod, and chicken entrees. The four course prix fixe is a great way to... More

My wife and I made our first trip to Acero for Valentine's Day 2015-- and it didn't disappoint. The menu was a little out of our comfort range (we're pizza and burgers type of people), but we decided to give it a whirl...and everything was delicious. The ambiance was great, the service was awesome as well. Also-- there aren't a... More

Want to treat your partner to a five star meal that will not break the bank? I would recommend Acero. The tasting menu does just this and you can try much of the menu and share the flavors with each other. I will be back.

We have eaten there several times in the past and found the food and service good. Our last experience found the menu, service and food excellent. We think that the food was "foodie" acceptable with plenty of nuance in the preparation. We will make sure that we go more often.

I don't think we have ever had anything but a perfect experience at Acero. The food is great, the service is top notch. And the mushroom tagliolini was great!! We did not have Mandy as our server this time but she is the best. Even without Mandy, service was excellent.

Visiting from out of town, locals took us to this restaurant on a Saturday night. It was busy and high energy. The bartender was outstanding and knew how to mix a Manhattan. We sat in the back room,Munich was less noisy. Marco took great care of us. Each of us ordered the pick four option from the menu. The choices... More

My friend and I have been going to Acero for years and each of us has our favorites. Sad to say; in the latest menu change, the "Gnudi"-my favorite food at Acero-has been taken off the menu. We can always get seats at the bar without reservations. If you are of a certain age and your hearing is starting to... More
