The set up is odd or maybe we just did it wrong, but had to got through a wedding type venue (they were setting up it wasn't in progress) to get downstairs to the restaurant.

During a visit to family in Utica, we had lunch at Aqua Vino. The restaurant has a pretty outdoor dining area along the canal, but it was too hot and humid the day we were there.

There is a patio dining area with propane heaters so you can enjoy no matter what the weather. The food was perfection. They offer a nicely varied menu so it's hard to make a choice. Everyone at...

We had good service and good food, wanted to sit outside but the weather didn't play ball. My steak was over cooked but still seasoned well! The atmosphere was pleasant and enjoyable. We will try it again this summer!
