Degustation menu was a showcase for the chef in acqua. Food was fresh and well balanced. However, it seemed like the chef was trying too hard. In retrospect, the a la carte menu would have been good enough. Dessert and petit fours at the end is a sweet surprise!

a safe bet when it comes to exquisite italian food in phuket. From fresh-made pasta to fresh oysters and a very broad wine selection rounds off a well operated restaurant. staff knows who is a regular and who is not, so it is better to have a reservation. the tables to the left are more quiet. the resto is on...

I was excited to come to Acqua, spruiked as the best in Phuket. Everything was as expected and the food is very good. Our waitresses were a lot of fun too but management made us feel like they were "doing us a favour" by being there. The ladies enjoyed the good quality wine. I will say I expected a bit... More

Service, ambience and superb cuisine. Lucky for me that this restaurant was at the end of driveway from the villa I stayed at. I ate dinner here almost exclusively after discovering it on my second day. The black truffle risotto was a wonder and the chocolate & gorgonzola mousse was a show-stopper. Book at table and let Joy and the... More

Yesterday we had the pleasure of eating in Phuket's Best restaurant. It's owner and chef Alessandro prepared for us a series of dishes to be able to share amongst friends that were out of this world. Service was top level and ready to answer any questions we posted, definitely I can see why so many of us trip advisors writers... More

So we came across the venue whilst hoping to try White Box, which unfortunately is still closed down one year on. Anyway, we turned up unannounced and were quickly seated, 7 of us, so well done for getting that sorted. It became quickly apparent that the venue is either owned by an Italian or heavily Italian themed which was unusual... More

We were a group of nine friends, all vegetarian. We planned to go to the restaurant, but decided against it, in favour of calling for the food. Calling for Italian food is not a good idea, but what a pleasant surprise. The taste was great, and when I ordered the food, Alex the chef suggested to add a salad, which... More
