Went there for a Birthday Dinner - were treated with great service by Gino, our Waiter. The Veal Saltimbocca was excellent. I recommend it, it you like veal dishes. For dessert we had the Lava Cake - WOW. I think I will go there another time and have that as a separate meal. Aqua Vino is a great restaurant with... More

I am so happy you had a great birthday dinner! Our chef does a wonderful job on preparing the veal dishes. It just so happens that your waiter, Mike Geno, Jr. is the chefs son! We are very blessed to have a great staff. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review. More

The food was OK. After we left (party of two) we realized that a tip had automatically been added on without us being told. So we mistakenly double tipped.

Hi John, I read your review concerning the tipping. It is not our policy to add a tip for a party of 2. Please send me the day you visited and the amount of the check, and the last 4 digits of the credit card used. I can research this matter on my end if you send me the info.... More

We located this hidden restaurant with excellent food and we are more than pleased. I had a salmon dish with a lot of character. My husband had broiled haddock and was very happy. Our waitress, Amanda, was caring and pleasant. It is a very clean and cozy restaurant with affordable pricing.

A great find on our way to the adirondacks. We both had the lamb chops. They were excellent, perfectly prepared and paired with a good California pinot noir. The lemoncello cake desert was a perfect capper. Our waiter, dan, was pleasant and accommodating. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

We found this restaurant on our way home from a relaxing Adirondack weekend, and we were not disappointed. It was a warm night so we chose to be seated outside with a canal view. The tiki torches were a nice touch and made for a relaxing atmosphere on a busy night. I chose the Penne Santorini, which was full of... More

We went to Aqua Vino last night; I had the Chicken Riggies and my girlfriend had the Chicken parmigiana. Both were excellent!!! I asked for just a little "hot" for my Riggies (GERD) and that's exactly the way they came - favorful, but not too hot for me. The service was extremely good. Our Waiter, Michael Gino, takes great pride... More

We enjoyed the great service of Kayla. She recommended the meal and we were enchanted. The wedding soup, pork chops and the vegetables were delicious. We could not finish our high quality meal as the portions were generous. We took back the remaining of our supper in a styrofoam container wrapped by plastic wrap to prevent leakage. Thank you, Kayla... More

Went here for a Christmas dinner and it was fantastic. Everyone loves the meal and we had a 14 person meal and staff was on top of everything. The food was fabulous and they have the best greens.
