“Simply the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

After reading some of the critical reviews, I felt compelled to set the record straight. I have been eating at Aqualina for over 3 years and have never been disappointed. The food, service, and wine are consistently top-notch and for my money there is not a better Italian restaurant in the Weston area. Il Toscano and Tarantella are good, but in opinion, Aqualina is the best!

“Authentic Italian food YUMMY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Aqualina is very clean,Great ambiance, food was DELICIOUS! The only thing they need to improve in is maybe be a little friendlier. They weren't rude or anything but kind of cold. But, hey I went there for the food! DELICIOUS!!!

“Never disappointing”

Food is always awesome!!! The meat balls and their chopped salad and carpaccio are a must!!! The waiter always remembers our drinks and the service and ambience are always inviting no matter what time.

“So-so food, very good service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Came with my fiance wanting to try a new Italian restaurant in our area and Acquolina came recommended by some family members. Our server Alfonzo was fantastic, he was very personable and kept referring to us as "familia" and called me "bella". He was very detail oriented and made sure we were well taken care of. The food on the other hand was just okay. I wasn't really wowed by anything. I had the shrimp oreganata in which the shrimp were on the small side and rather flavorless. My fiance has the shrimp parmigiana and he said the same thing. Neither dishes came with pasta and were on the higher priced side so we split a half order of penne ala vodka which again, we were not crazy about. I hate having to add salt to my food but in this case I did. The wine and dessert was good and we chased our tasteless dinner down with a shot of limoncello. I don't think my fiance and I will be returning anytime soon.

“Not what it used to be!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Service OK, food slipping--pasta overcooked, sauces taste the same. Wine not served at right temp. This place used to be tops in Weston--but I am convinced that Il Toscano has taken over the helm at this point. With Chef Angelo opening in Country Isles next month, this may be all she wrote...
