    Haven't had a bad meal. Food is terrific. The seafood is fresh. It's a tad pricey. In our experience reservations work best. Place can get noisy and quite crowded. The wait staff can be slow, but they are friendly and the ambiance is not boring.

    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.

    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.

    Bartthediner
    Dined on 4/2/2014
    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.

    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 3/29/2014
    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.

  • Not Your Usual Italian Fare
    borodin
    Dined on 3/15/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
