We were looking for another recommended restaurant when we came across this gem. Lovely fresh, authentic Italian food, not drenched with over-seasoned, over-sweet dressing or 'stuff' like so many local restaurants. Of all the dozen or so restaurants we tried in the city, this is...More

Located in one of the oldest New York City spots, on the corner of Peck Slip and Water Street, Acqua at Peck Slip is an authentic Italian restaurant specializing on Southern Italian cuisine and seafood. It is a very cozy place with a large diversity of dishes based on the best traditional recipes. The restaurant is close to the Brooklyn Bridge, in a Historic district called South Street Seaport, where the first Dutch pilgrims arrived in the beginning of the 17th century, this neighborhood still keeps the unique atmosphere of those ages. Cobblestone streets, old fashion sailing ships which moored right to the 17 Pier, make you feel like you are in Sicily. This area contains a high concentration of old buildings, and Acqua is located in one of the oldest landmark buildings in the neighborhood. A bright, open, warm atmosphere takes you in Naples. With big windows, old wood floors, simply furnished, Acqua is a great place for enjoying Italian food and wine.
