“Wish we could have sat inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This restaurant is so popular that if you are lucky enough to get a last minute Sat. eve reservation , the table is outside. Despite fans, it was hot- which made it uncomfortable an detracted from a great meal.
Nice wine list, great appetizers - the fried zucchini was delicious. Great chopped salar. Our party of 5 shared Bronzini, shrimp oreganata, and penne a la vodka....after appetizers and salad it was plenty.
The waiters dished out the family style shared dishes, which was a great added touch.
We all shared one lovely to die for chocolate dessert.
Looking forward to going again in cooler weather or a reserved inside table.

“Food Poisoning”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Went to Aquolina in Weston for dinner last night for the first and last time. The service was great, the food tasted great, however, three hours the Shrimp Scampi that my husband ate came back up. He had diarrhea and vomiting all night. I called the restaurant the next day to inform them that my husband had food poisoning, the response I got from the Manager was, "we are sorry, but what do you want us to do?" I said that I wanted nothing, but for you to check out your kitchen in how the food is being prepared and to make sure nobody else gets sick. He asked if he went to the doctors, I told him no because he could not leave the bathroom. He did not even ask my name or take my number. Never again!

“Great food”

Although it is an upscale restaurant, the lunch menu is quite generous and affordable, and food is served fast.

“A MOST ENJOYABLE DINING EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

There was outside seating in comfortable wicker chairs under an overhang on the rear patio. And with a view of a small lake. But it was the wrong time of the year for sitting outdoors. Therefore, I opted for the cool AC indoors. The dining room was neat. White table cloths. Soft lighting over the bar and tables. Pleasant background music. A classy and relaxing atmosphere.

Though the luncheon buffet was being set up, I ordered from the menu. I went for the Lasagna Bolognese Al Forno: "oven baked pasta layered with authentic bolognese meat sauce, bechamel and mozzarella." While that entrée was being prepared a waitperson brought me a basket of fresh Italian bread. Right out of the oven. Actually hot to the touch initially. And very tasty.

The lasagna stack was brought to my table swimming in the meat sauce, just the way I like it. And this entrée was simply delicious. I couldn't put my fork down. There was plenty of food. Though I could have polished off all the lasagna, discretion was the better part of appetite. So I walked out with a doggie bag.

A most enjoyable dining experience.

“Nice Italian Fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Desperate for some comfort food, I sought out something Italian. I was pleased to find the restaurant able to accommodate me without reservations on Father's Day. While a little on the expensive side, the food was quality and right sized portions. The bread was amazing and I enjoyed dessert. Would visit again.
