A word from Acqua - NYC
Acqua serves simple, fresh Italian food in a comfortable, neighborhood setting. Our menu includes classic antipasti, paste, and secondi, as well as light, thin-crust pizzas from our traditional wood-burning oven. We offer daily specials—many of them seafood, as our name suggests—and an intriguing selection of Italian wines by the glass and bottle. Our friendly staff welcomes parties of all sizes, from a romantic dinner for two to a casual family meal to a festive large gathering. We hope you will join us soon.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This has been my "Go To" Italian restaurant. I was very disappointed with the Branzino, which I've ordered 3 times in the past. Previously, a thick (about 1" high), moist piece of fish was served. Tonight it was barely 1/4" thick and very dry. Don't know what's happened there…."

  • "I have been eating at Acqua for at least 10 years and I have never been served a bad meal or even anything I thought was lazily prepared. The food is distinctly Southern Mediterranean and they do fish as well as anyone. There have been many times when I visited Acqua 4 times in a month because I found the food to be better (and cheaper) than any other place in the neighborhood. Go and see for yourself."

  • "We enjoyed a very nice meal with our family. They have a nice looking brick oven, although we didn't have pizza this night. We enjoyed our meal very much."

  • "Perfect place for lunch. Prix fix menu and perfectly acceptable house wine for $5 by the glass! Wood fire oven not only used for cooking but gives it great ambiance. I had delicious calamari, my partner had an interesting salad. Definitely plan to go back."

  • "Nice small neighborhood spot convenient to Symphony Space. Six of us ate there prior to a concert. The food was good, not great. The staff was welcoming and the service was prompt and friendly. I wouldn't call it a fine dining experience, but as a place to go with friends and have a good meal at reasonable prices without feeling rushed it was perfect."

  • "A simple Italian, neighborhood trattoria. The service was very slow. The menu is limited but there are enough choices for any taste. Stick to the simpler things. The pastas are good. The wine choices are fine with a moderate (not skimpy) pour and desserts are the usual. If you are in the Broadway and 95th street area, this place is certainly an option."

  • "Neighborhood gem. Food delicious and good value. Close to 1,2,3 subway. Nice spot to meet neighborhood friends."

  • "The food was good. Waitstaff was friendly but not terribly efficient. A couple of mistakes in the order were made but corrected. Unfortunately, the only table that was available for our group of 7 was underneath the air conditioning and heating vents and we were subjected to extreme heat and then cold during the entire meal. I don't know if we had been seated elsewhere would we have been subjected to the same conditions. I will ask next time I make a reservation. The restaurant is worth returning to as the food was good, reasonably priced and in a good location for parking."

  • "Nice antipasto, excellent mushroom pappardelle, undistinguished clam linguine. Service friendly but very slow. Pleasant place if you're in the neighborhood."

  • "Food was decent--nothing spectacular, but good enough. The service was very poor. Our muscled waiter was more interested in texting and flirting with female customers to pay attention to the couple in the corner. In fact, we had just ordered our entrees and wanted a glass of wine...tried to flag his attention for a good five minutes, before the busboy noticed. The waiter sauntered over phone in hand and asked, "check?". Um, why would we want the check after just ordering dinner? Pay attention."

  • "Nothing fancy, but so delicious. Really wonderful pizzas straight from the wood burning fire. Excellent fried artichokes and beautiful salads. The price is right and it's such good value."

  • "Lovely food, nice portions, but disorganized and with wait staff who NEVER look up. You can't get their attention when you need something. When asked to bring menus, the waiter brought one for 4 of us with no explanation. When asked for water he brought one glass, never asked to see who else wanted besides the person who actually asked....... basic stuff like that. Otherwise, everyone was nice, just not too swift on the service details..."
