Delicious food and even better wine list! I came with a small group for my birthday and each of us were thoroughly satisfied with our meal choices- from the truffle pizza to the lasagna, there was something for everyone. Our server was particularly attentive and had great wine recommendations for us as well.

To say that we love Acqua is an understatement. Chef Giuseppe Marrone is the ultimate host, Chef and owner. The fresh, homemade pastas and pizzas are TO DIE FOR and the limoncello that follows our meal is the perfect ending. Thank you to all at a Acqua for making our anniversary spectacular. We will be back!

Generous portions. One of the best salads I've eaten in years. The tomatoes were delicious; every ingredient was fresh and crisp. We both had spaghetti vongele with a ton of clams in the shell. More clams than I've ever been served at twice the price. Nice selection of wines by the glass. The restaurant is bright and welcoming.

I always come to Acqua! I love this restaurant. It’s our neighborhood go to. The staff are amazing and treat you like family it’s wonderful! They’ll also give you free limoncello shots sometimes with dessert. All the food there is fabulous. They have classics with a modern twist. The wine is good too! Love the Paisans!

Nice food and lovely service. sitting outside is great as you can see the seaport area but its not too noisy. Good food choices. Our only complaint about the food was the Tuna entree we had , which was over cooked. everything else was cooked well.

WHAT A FIND! Super friendly staff and fabulous food! They comped a dish when they misunderstood our order and it was superb - barata rather than bruschetta! Both were excellent! I would go again and I told other conference attendees about our find!

Whether family is in town or it’s date night or I just want some quality Italian food, I come to Aqua. I have never had one bad meal here! The staff are so friendly and treat you like family and love to give free limoncello shots with your dessert!

The food is so good and I envy my husband who comes here for lunch all the time. We took our friends and they are crazy about this restaurant now! It is good to come with several people so we can try many appetizers to share before the main dishes. Even though I was so full, I ate whole Tiramisu, too.

I live in Chelsea and travel down to South Street Seaport for dinner at Acqua. The pasta is hand made and the fish is fresh everyday. I have had the same dishes over and over and they are always consistent. Linguini Vongole is my favorite dish on the menu. However, I will order an item off the "specials of the day" as they are always excellent!

The food is fantastic, the wine incredible and the staff outstanding. I can't say enough good things about this place. The owner (who is also the chef) comes out of the kitchen, introduces himself to everyone and makes sure nothing is lacking.
Truly a great experience from start to finish. I will definitely be back!!

We booked a table outside and it was peaceful and quiet because there are no cars passing by.
The food was not "real Italian" but quality was good.
I will go back very soon to taste the spaghetti with astice!.
