Acqua is top notch in quality, hospitality and homemade southern Italian fare. The staff makes you feel like family, and the food makes you sing. Many thanks to the generous staff and owner for always making us full in our stomach and hearts. Grazie mille!

Good restaurant, nothing special. Valentine’s Day menu was average mostly because of dessert: lamb chops were more boiled than grilled, dessert was awful - the cheapest possible version for the fixed price menu. The carpaccio, staffed rag plants and risotto were very good. Waiters were excellent!!

Seafoods stew was delicious and full of flavor. Hoped they could put more seafoods to fill my appetite.

Acqua's had a new wait staff, and a slightly revemped menu. I had the linguini with mussels in white wine/butter/garlic sauce. Fantastic!
This is still one of my fav NYC restaurants. I highly recommend it!

The chef did it again! Such a great food! Baby Octopus Stew was amazing! Great to have in winter and should be a regular menu. Pasta special is always good. As soon as I leave this restaurant, I'm looking forward to the next visit.

Good menu for lunch. Maybe a bit too much food. The cheese & meat platter was good and the pollo was great. The last time I ate there the cheese & meat was different (& better), so I would like to see a consistency there. BUT, Livia the server was amazing with a great personality. I watched her deal with a difficult table with grace. She had another table that was over the top and catered to them perfectly. She knows how to read her tables!

Food and service were phenomenal. My native Italian husband was blown away by the quality of the dishes. Thrilled to see a restaurant of this caliber in the Seaport!

1st time in NYC and our hotel staff recommended it for great Italian food. We were not disappointed: fantastic food, attentive staff and historic atmosphere! Would go back in a heartbeat. If we lived here, this would be our neighborhood spot. Don't forget the cannolis!

We had an excellent meal at Acqua. The location was wonderful in a very quiet section of the Lower East side near the Brooklyn Bridge which mad for some great pictures. We enjoyed the food very much and the owner/chef Guiseppe came out and visited with us and that was delightful. Our service was excellent they were very acommodating to all of our needs. Good wine list. I give them five stars!! Loved the ambience of the place.

We come to this restaurant all the time and I'm running out of words to praise. The food is so good since new chef took over and has never disapinted every time we dine. The chef is always creating different dishes so specials are highly recommended. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Just love this place!!
