    We had been regulars for some time. Being weight conscious, we especially enjoyed having a drink or two at the bar and dining on their delectable appetizers. [The shrimp cocktail was a meal in itself.] The crowd at the bar was friendly and welcoming; and everyone warmed up to Peter, the bartender. When the place grew so popular that we couldn't find a seat at the bar, we decided to try other places for a while; but came back recently for old times' sake. To our pleasant surprise, they had doubled the size of the bar. Peter still works there on Fridays. And we ate outside, on the water. The food was as good as ever. [The skirt steak dinner was my favorite and still is.] And the experience made us vow to come back much more frequently.

    My date and i were celebrating six years of matrimonial bliss. Started with the Florida arugula salad - terrific. Unfortunately, our request for the sea bass was denied. They has just run out! Second choice of shrimp scampi with pasta was delicious. I ordered the pounded veal chop with mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic, and asparagus. It was very good! However, tonight the waiter was not very attentive. Don't bother with the latte... it's very weak. Overall, we can always count on a delicious meal.

Most recently, my parents moved down here and it's our place for family occasions when siblings come in. Thank you for such stellar food and service.

    While foood was excellent, they have the worlds worst bartender. Theydo not know how to make a mixed drink. Ordered a vodka martine and got a glass full of vermouth. My wife ordered a maquerita and recieved a water glass , half filled with the salt so thick she had to wipe it off to drink from the glass. We go there for the food as this has happened every timewego there. m

    I first have to say that it does not matter how good the food is, if the service is not good I won't go back. This place had both. Our waiter was amazing as well as the rest of the staff. The good was great. I had the seafood linguine which was delicious. My parents had the chicken Milanese and the sole which were both extremely good. I would definitely be back.

    Dined on 5/27/2014
    Dinner was good, server forgot one of our salads, the wait time between courses was long. It was a Tuesday night after 8pm in Weston. the flow time could be improved. The assistant(busboy) could have done a better job checking if we needed more bread and drinks.(Had to ask). The experience was good and we would go back but would like to see some more attention to detail. Don't want to blame the kitchen but the communication between wait staff and kitchen expeditor needs to improve. The food had good flavor and was prepared to the correct temperature. We have been there before and felt things were a bit more polished could have been an off night but for customer retention you need to do better than good.

    I am a New Yorker and a connoisseur of fine dining. I celebrated my birthday here with my family. What a treat! The ambiance was elegant and sophisticated. The waiter was attentive and made excellent suggestions. We each had something different on the menu ranging from veal to seafood, and it was all good. We were pleasantly surprised when we got the bill. Our 4 course meal was much less than expected. We would have gladly paid more. We go to Weston twice a year. This little gem would rival any South Beach establishment. We will make it a point to go back. All in all, a memorable experience!

    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.
