If you want to eat real Venetian dishes, this is THE place; a family-owned restaurant. This was our second visit and, lIke the first time, we enjoyed every mouthful. Venetian pizzas are wonderful here, too. So happy that we have discovered Acqua Alta.

Description
Established in 2016. Owners Paolo Polo and Patrizia, recent immigrants from Venice, Italy, have debuted their authentic Venetian restaurant. Paolo and Patty want to whisk you 5,000 miles away and transport their patrons to the northeastern city -- all by taste. Paolo and Patty decided to open a restaurant using Italian cooking techniques to provide a new foodie experience with the commitment to outsource as much local produce as possible to serve healthy and tasty food. Our Mantra is "Sano, buono e km 0" that in English means healthy, tasty, and ZERO MILES! At Acqua Alta you will be food transported to Venezia by tasting the famous Cicchetti (Venetian style Finger food), Tramezzini (small delicious sandwiches) and Classic and historical Venetian recipes such as Baccala ( Cod ) Mantecato or Shrimp in Saor, main courses like Homemade Pasta, Lasagne, Risotti and Fried Shrimp & Calamari...
