Diner Reviews
  • "We always get a good meal, good value, large portions, fresh ingrediants and an interesting wine list."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food was very good, and the family portions were great. We ordered 2 family portion dishes for 3 people, and took some food home. The service was also very good. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the Weston area."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Acquolina consistently delivers outstanding Italian food and prime steaks in a great setting with attentive service. The Calimari Arbiota is an appetizer we look forward to every time we eat here. My wife, who is not a big steak eater, orders the filet mignon with Gorgonzola sauce. It is cooked to perfection and comes with a twice baked potato. My lasagna is is some of the best I have ever had and there is always enough to take home for lunch the next day."

  • "one of the very best restaurants in broward. every dish we had was excellent."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This restaurant used to be great, but the service definitely went south. You can no longer put in an appetizer order without putting in your entire dinner order. I've never heard of that in my life. The place is super disorganized and takes forever to get your food. Spent $124 our dinner and felt ripped off after. Won't go back again."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Exceptional all round. Thank you for the friendly and professional service. Food was amazing also! We will definitely return!!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We have dined at Acquolina at least 8 times before and this time was the first real disappointment. The service was very slow although the waiter was friendly. The noise level was high even seated outside. The food seemed subpar compared to previous times. My veal parm was just ok. My daughter has some strict dietary issues and she was very explicit with the waiter. The waiter acknowledged her concerns and said "no problem, this is easy". Unfortunately, either he did not convey this properly to the chef or the chef did not follow instructions but the food was prepared improperly. An apology came from the waiter but nothing else and we were still charged for her dinner. It may be a while until I try Acquolina's again."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "We have been vacationing in Weston every year for the past 6 years. In our opinion, Acqolina is the best.restaurant in town. The food and service is always great. They offer both.half size and family size portions. We find a half size portion is enough for two. There is a lovely outside dining area overlooking a lake."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Food is consistantly good. Service is as good as it gets. Very people oriented."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I was very disappointed with this restaurant. We were denied the opportunity to sit outside because of a large party booking, but other small and large groups were offered the seating option. We arrived when the restaurant opened and yet our waiter was immediately called into a meeting, leaving us to wait. Also, there seemed to be too many waiters on hand and they were bored, so the loitered by our table and carried on. Perhaps they could have found something better to do. The restaurant was a little stuffy and they seemed to have forced maximum tables into the limited space, leaving guests sitting on top of one another. The food was good, but this restaurant has a lot to learn about customer service. Go elsewhere if you gave a choice."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Great place for a nice dinner in Weston. Service and food are always good. The outdoor seating feels like intracoastal dining. The lunch buffet is excellent and a great value. Same items on dinner menu at a considerably lower price."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Nice ambiance and perfectly cooked food. The service struck me as extremely professional and friendly. Excellent, affordable wines. In short, the perfect dining experience. We will be back with other friends for sure."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "not quite sure on the food, opening the door to the patio brought in strong cigarette smells which made the inside uncomfortable. service excellent."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Tired of the usual Southern Italian cookery? Unless you specifically order pasta, the dishes are notable for the absence of those carbs. Most foods come a cappella so don't expect any complete dinners all tied up in a bow at bargain prices. With Italian food the sauce is the thing, and it is here that the restaurant shines. Highest quality ingredients and sublime flavors make for a special dining experience. Couple this with attentive service and full knowledge of the menu and you actually have a staff that seems to be enjoying their job, thus transmitting this joy to the customer as well. Portions come in two sizes regular, and family size--obviously to be shared among a group."

  • "We had a birthday dinner at Acquolina on a Sunday night. Everyone loved it including my 23 month old son who was particularly fond of the Pasta Fagoli soup and the Tiramisu."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Located in a shopping mall but backing on an artificial lake. Pleasant, nice service and good food. As usual in Florida, portions are too large but no problem with the leftover take home. We had two very good entrees : jumbo shrimp arabiata on linguine which seemed home made and veal Marsala. We ordered a side of spaghetti with the same mushroom, red wine sauce. Enjoyed wine by the glass but had no room for dessert which as it passed by, looked delicious."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "All courses were very large for one person but excellent. Had spinach salad, calamari, and sole. Was never hurried and had a great dinner. Would definitely recommend, but will approach dinner differently next time."

  • "Greatly prepared northern Italian entrees! Nice wine list. Very good and attentive service."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Tables positioned too close. Our waiter was always busy with something else. Food took very long to arrive and when it did orders were wrong. We were party of six. 2 orders wrong and one Old World Pasta totally tasteless . Left over dishes were swapped by waiters and given to wrong party. We will not go back"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The food was good with very large salads . The bread was exceptional. Very noisy but good for 2 people to still carry on a conversation."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Service - Danny, Alonso, Pedro and others cater to all of your needs. Food - over the past couple of years has been better and better. I visit Florida monthly and make it my business to eat at least once at Acquolina."

  • "My 16 year olds favorite place food always good Service always great. Food comes out super fat Singing of happy bday needs work Over all A good restaurant that never disappoints"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Im not a lasgne fan but a friend urged me to try Acquolina's. You will not be disappointed if you do. The pasta has a creamy texture thats unique and the sauce is incredible. I also tried the filet of sole, also amazing. The inside and outside atmosphere is great, service was also very good. You will not be disappointed."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Very good classic Italian food with excellent service. Great place for groups, for sharing dishes and having a fun. energetic and festive evening that is both 'local' and 'destination' in nature. We are there often and can always count on a great meal whether it's the chopped salad, chicken parm, or the sole. We have had Groups there many times and it is our local 'go to' place."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Found Aquolina on Open Table. What a find. We had the chopped salad, stuffed artichoke and one of the best veal parms I ever had. Our waiter Danny was super professional and made the experience that much better. We are staying in Weston for 2 weeks and we plan on going a few times."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The quick seating via Open Table reservation, even while others were at the bar waiting for any table, was impressive. We found the restaurant in our hotel magazine, planned our first night there and had planned to go to a nearby Argentinian steak house the next night. But the quality of both food and wait staff, as well as value, brought us back the next night..,influenced also by the chance for seating out on the lake side patio. A wonderful pair of evenings!"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "One of the better restaurants in Weston. Good Italian food at a reasonable price. Make a reservation if you plan on a Friday/Saturday night"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great Restaurant, Osso Bucco was delicious but my wife's Lobster tail was overcooked and rubbery. Otherwise excellent location for a romantic night out."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Ambience is great. Our server was excellent. Food is wonderful italian fare. Worth the trip from Miami."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Flavorful meals. Booked a late valentines day dinner and felt rushed to hurry up, eat and leave. Admittedly one the best tasting porterhouse steak I've had in awhile. Was not offered another beverage as my empty glass was removed."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was great and not very expensive. Service was great. Wine was a bit overpriced considering the taste. Ive tasted better wines for less. The sauteed calamari was great. The shades were closed at night during good weather preventing the view of the lake but overall it was worth the money."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was excellent. I hunt Italian all over Miami, this time I went to Weston and it was worth the trip. Pricing was good for the excellent portions. I had a meatball appetizer, and a Chicken Parmesan platter and both were everything I hoped for."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great night, from the moment we walked in until we left. The food,wine and service were good ! Everyone from the girl who seated us were very nice and helpful . Definitely will return. Thanks to all ."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We enjoyed our dinner immensely---everything is well-prepared, and make sure you're hungry, because the portions are enormous. The "half-size" of the chicken parm was more than enough for the two of us!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "My parents were in town and we decided to take them to Acquolina, a local family-style Italian spot we've enjoyed several times. They serve traditional Italian dishes - lots of pasta, veal and chicken options, all well-prepared and in large portions. We enjoy any of the parmagiana dishes, although personally I love the eggplant. The desserts are also standouts. The marinara is as good as any I've ever had. It tastes like homemade sauce, rich, perfectly seasoned and ever so slightly sweet. Many restaurants' marinara sauces have too much tomato "bite" for my taste. Acquolina's is delightful. Worth noting are the light, flavorful appetizer meatballs. I've even made them dinner with a chopped salad and bread. It's a lot of food!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Always consistent with there food. The food quality is outstanding and it's very rare that I have seen food being returned by customers."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We've been coming here for years. They have changed the menu a few times since we've started eating here, but mostly maintain a pretty good Italian fair (no Pizza here kids). Our last visit was good, but we were a little disappointed at the over $25 price plus tag on the Burratta appetizer. Most other Italian restaurants keep their Burratta well below $20, and unless their Burratta is gonna jump up and do a dance on the table, we aren't gonna order it. The Beef Carpaccio is always good, as is the Chopped Salad (make sure you ask to add salami and cheese as this makes it so much better). A lot of their food is just great, wine list is okay, and they have a full bar so you can't go wrong here. Sitting outside is always lovely. Very good!!!"

  • "OTHER THAN THE TABLE WHERE WE WERE SEATED AND I HAD A DIRECT VIEW OF THE KITCHEN THE EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT. FOOD AND SERVICE WERE BEYOND REPROACH, FRIENDLY AND ALL IN ALL A GREAT DINING EXPEREINECE. MY GUESTS REALLY ENJOYED THE EXPERIENCE AND WE WILL ALL DEFINETLY RETURN, BUT ASK FOR A DIFFERENT TABLE."
