This is a gem of a place in Fresh Meadows. Near St. John's University and Queens College, it's the perfect place for a quick meal with colleagues or friends. The food is absolutely delicious, although I think it's a little on the pricey side. Nonetheless,...More

I have been to Aquista a few times. The food is very good but a little pricey. They have lunch specials that are great and very reasonable, but cash only. Worth carrying the cash!!!!

I have been at this place twice before and found it unpretentious but the good was good. Since then the place was enlarged but we did not enjoy the food. I had veal Marsala, my wife had Branzino, neither was good.The wine selection was decent.
