“Cooked with love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Different cuisine, not your typical pasta vongole and scampi, but another side of Italy that I have never tasted! It was a lovely dinning experience, we ordered the tasters menu, and they changed my main to a different one I wanted. My daughter wanted grilled gambas ( which was not on the menu) and they were more than happy to make it. After her meal she was having some of there lovely homemade focaccia type of bread with the sauce from the gambas, and the owner rushed and served her some olive oil. Extremely wonderful hosts, we really felt welcome, a lot of food, we ate well, and tasted something very unique! Please please please go there, you can taste their passion. Their chocolate dessert was superb too!

“An Itimate Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

A real little gem! Tiny little place that is clearly the domain of the chef/owner. He greeted us, took our orders, suggested the wine and delivered most of the food. The food was first rate and we were made to feel welcome amongst the mostly local clientele. Well worth the visit!

“Expensive and small portions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Was recommended by the concierge. It was going for high-end/gourmet but the food was ok with small portions and extremely pricey. Not a good experience.

“Formal nice but average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We went based on the reviews but were disappointed with the food considering the reviews and the price. It is ok but not the best we had in Italy. All dishes are seafood base. I thought there could be one steak dish as my partner is not a seafood person. We had one starter dish to share. One main each 1/2 bottle of wine and the bill came to 90 Eur. We were the only people in the restaurant and it was passed 8pm. I have to wonder about some of the great reviews here.

“Blacker then black...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Yust 100 meters away from the classical tourist trap street restaurants, Acqua Pazza offers a modern, clean, interior and a good though limited choice of surprises. A local fish envelopped in breadcrums tainted black with octopusinkt. Surprising but quite good if you like a dark black something ariving on your plate. Try the homemade gnochi, more suntle then their commegeus in other local restaurants. Nice winelist, yet relatively young wines.
