The food is full of flavor as is the atmosphere loaded with friendship. Their menu has plenty of variety and tons of value. If you enjoy dining at a bar there is none better.

This review is for the banquet services. I threw a 50 person party and Trish/Aqua Vino were wonderful. The room looked great and the food was excellent. Everyone was very pleased as sometimes it's a roll of the die with buffets but every single dish we had was delicious. Incredibly kind people and didn't bat an eye when we stayed... More

We ate here on a Friday for the first time. The service, food and atmosphere were excellent. I had the chicken saltimbocca which included a salad and one side for $22. It was a large portion and so flavorful for a chicken dish. My wife had the sea bass which she said was fresh and delicious. Great food at great... More

We have eaten there on several occasions and really love eating outside in appropriate weather. Quite a nice upscale atmosphere. We have not observed or smelled any raw sewage floating along. A dependable good meal, slightly above average for the region, especially if you eat outside. Inside is a bit crowded on a weekend evening. Food very reliable, average value.

If you like the smell of raw decomposing sewage try it! Worst in the region! We went and there was raw sewage floating by in their "canal". Overpriced for mediocre food and the SMELL sealed the deal we will never go back!

Had to walk thru a bridal shower to get to elevator to restaurant, feeling a little awkward.food was delicious, no children's menu but waiter was very accomodating to get a small meal... More

Wonderful lunch meal with my wife at Aqua Vino. It was a beautiful day so we ate on their patio outside right on the erie Canal. Lovely Floral hanging plants all around. Italian food (Riggies) was Deelish! We each had a glass of wine and a lovely meal with attentive and friendly service. We were pleased when we received our... More

This was our second time at this treasure in Utica. Seated outside looking over a picturesque river, the food is very good and the service very attentive. If you are in the area, this is well worth stopping over for.

This is one of the best restaurants in the Utica area. As someone with celiac, it is often a challenge to find restaurants that understand gluten free cooking. I am told that the chef's wife has celiac so he understands the chalenges of cooking gluten free. They also carry Bard's beer, which is gluten free. None of the GF beers... More
