    Waiter was extremely helpful and encouraged us to make several substitutions (eg goat cheese instead of gorgonzola on salad) that made the meal excellent. Very large portionss; good value and great tasting food. We're a little spoiled coming from NJ, but this was an excellent Italian restaurant.

    Great place to go with a big group of people who like to share and try different plates. The place always seems to be packed with an older crowd that likes to party. We felt out of place at first with out kids but they had good time listening to the music and watching the ladies get down on the dance floor.

    The food at Acquo 124 is always delicious; we are loyal customers. This visit we had 14 guests and the manager was so accommodating ( I had to change the reservation time 2x ). The food was amazing, portion sizes generous, staff attentive. A member of our party is a promanent restauranteur from Philadelphia who also sings. We loved the entertainment in fact, the musician allowed Sal to sing happy birthday to my daughter and a song in Italian. It was great! A wonderful memory for everyone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/22/2012
    I went here with my husband for his birthday. I expected a quiet, romantic evening with great food and I got 2 out of 3. It was loud as we sat right next to the piano player. We asked to be moved and the waiter said they were completely full. We sat for about 20 minutes until a waiter came over and asked, " has anyone been to your table yet?" We wanted to order a flat bread but the waiter said their oven went down and we couldn't order it. They have a full service bar with the exception of sangria. I ordered the lobster ravioli which was very good and he ordered the lasagna which he said was just OK. Overall the food was good but the service was not. I won't be returning for a romantic evening out but perhaps for a family dinner.

    I heard so many good things about Aqua 124 that I decided it was time to go. I am so glad I finally "discovered" such a fine Italian restaurant only minutes (if you don't count Christmas traffic) from my home. After being seated I ordered a half order of the strawberry salad. It was enough for two and very reasonably priced. My girlfriend ordered a salmon dish and I ordered something that was not even on the menu. I wanted fettucini alfredo with chicken, house made sausage, sun dried tomatoes and spinach. My request was gladly accepted and our waiter, Humberto, even jokingly named the dish for me. The dish arrived exactly as I ordered and was very colorful and delicious. It was enough to guarantee leftovers. Great meal. I'll be back!

    You can beleive all the good things you read from others about this restaurant. This place is totally awesome. Food, service, menu seletion, wine list, scotch list, everything is just excellent. Fried mussels are awesome along with burnt beans. Not kidding about the burnt green beans. I had veal with ragu and fresh tomato and herb sauce and it was very good. My friend had penne with marinara sauce that was also wonderful. While the food is great and the service equally good I enjoyed the many good wines available by the glass. If you are in the area you can't beat this restaurant for great food. If you like bread you will love what they serve here, made by the owner at his bakery. Totally awesome!

    Acquo 124 is the Hllandale branch of Weston's Acquolina and it's as good if not better. Service is attentive, the atmosphere is condusive to dining and conversation and the food is simply delicious. Try the calamari. It's lightly fried and served with a tasty tomato sauce. All pastas are well prepared Main course are excellent whether having lemon chicken or veal. Food is served family style for sharing but the servers personally divide and plate each person. We will return!!

    We enjoyed the food, which was excellent, and overall experience (lively atmosphere, with music) on three different occasions, twice in one week. This time, on our fourth visit (3/29), the food was not served hot, the Caesar salad was not as fresh and crisp as it should have been. In short,the food was ordinary, and not nearly as good as it had been on the other visits. I would give it another try, since hopefully, it was just an off night.

    Although we received very good service, we were disappointed in our meals. We had a decent chianti for $45, about 2,5x retail. The Caesar salad & bread were good. Both entrees were disappointing. I had linguine with seafood; it was dreadful. The mussels were huge & did not smell fresh; so, I didn't eat then. The calamari looked like it came from a giant squid; so, I didn't eat it either; and my whole bowl was just a bowl of this giant offensive looking calamari. My husband ordered spaghetti with bolognese sauce. His spaghetti was mushy & there wasn't any meat in the bolognese sauce. He did order a side order of very fine sausage. If this was our first trip to Acquo, we would never return. Hopefully, it was just an off night.
