Discover authentic Italian food at its finest at Acqua Alta! We went there on a date night and had a wonderful time. We started with the antipasto Italiano, which included homemade and imported (from Italy) meats and cheeses. My wife had a delicious pasta dish...featuring their handmade ravioli, and I had shaved pork with Burrata cheese over greens that melted in the mouth. We enjoyed a bottle of Ripasso Superiore from the Valpolicella region, near Chef Paulo's home city. For dessert we had Tiramisu’ al Pistacchio and Affogato al Caffe (ice cream in espresso - ask for the whiskey-flavored version!). Throughout the evening, we were served with warmth and hospitality by Paulo and Patty. This Ristorante is not just a nice place - it's the real deal! We look forward to many more visits.More

Love this restaurant. Fresh homemade pasta and veal is to die for! Everything is so fresh and tasty. Curbside service during Covid so you don't even have to get out of the car. Owners are very sweet and very good at what they do.

The 2 owners are always present and their food is some of the best!! We go there at least 2 times a month and have never had a meal we did not like. If you like Italian food you must try it soon.

My husband and I have dined at this restaurant several times and it's always a winner. All their food is fresh, cooked to order, authentic northern Italian cuisine. I especially love the pizza, pasta and desserts. They offer an extensive wine selection as well. The...restaurant is especially enjoyable on Saturday evenings with live smooth jazz and American standard musical selections. Perfect for date night. .More

If you ever want a true Italian dining experience, visit Acqua Alta at the corner of McMullen Booth Road and enterprise in Clearwater. Owners, Paolo and Patricia, were native to Venice Italy and operate the restaurant. They could not be more kind and gracious or...go out of their way to make your experience memorable. They are so hospitable it feels like family.More

My husband and I attended the cheese tasting event on Sunday. Wonderful experience- from the wines and cheeses to the delicious lunch- it was very special and top notch. Also, the music duo was excellent- singer was from Italy who sang Italian folk songs beautifully!...We hope they have another event like this in the near future!!More

We went here as a group of 8 and were treated to some great food. We started with homemade ravioli. They make there own pasta on the premises so all the pasta dishes were really good. Then we had some meatballs in a tomato sauce....Nonnas recipe well hats of to nonna and the chef superbly cooked and amazingly light. Then another pasta dish with a tomato sauce. Again great pasta and sauce. Then we had prawns and calamari in the lightest of batter. The prawns were really juicy and perfectly cooked. This was followed with one of the best tiramisus I have ever had. Many thanks to the staff for a great night And my brother Terry for taking us here.More
