Great food and service
Very loud - couldn’t hear across the table
Perfectly cooked salmon!
A little noisy, but that also contributed to the liveliness of the place. Waiters, maitre d’ and other workers all attentive but not overly solicitous. Very enjoyable evening.
In a word: Divino!
Great service. The owner is on site! great food. Our favorite local place
Loved the food here. First place that took me back to Italy. Warm ambience, excellent service. Would definitely come back
Neighborhood gem. Delicious Italian food. Fairly easy to get a table. Nice selection of Italian wines. Owner Giuseppe is an energetic, fun guy. My girlfriend and I really enjoy this place.
Always a great experience eat at acquaa
Went for Valentine’s Day had a great pre fixed menu which was delicious. The welcome plate was a very nice touch and a delicious way to start the meal
Pre fix menu, great service
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!
Wonderful service, fantastic food and the location is gorgeous.
Seafoods stew was delicious and full of flavor. Hoped they could put more seafoods to fill my appetite.
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!!
Fabulous! Neighborhood gem!
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!
In the city for work and had dinner here with a co-worker. Bread service included bread sticks, small slices of Italian bread and lentils in olive oil. Delicious. I started with a very nicely balanced salad of arugula, avocado and tomato. My co-worker asked for a hybrid of two of the salads on the menu and our waiter (and the kitchen) was very obliging. I had linguini with clams for my entree. The pasta was perfectly cooked, and served over a bed of small clams in their shells. My co-worker enjoyed the trio of gelato for dessert. Service was friendly and unhurried. I would definitely return again to try some additional items on the menu.
The octopus was superb. The Primitivo was delicious. The atmosphere was elegant, rustic and perfect. The service was warm and refined. We will be back.
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.
It was easy to get a reservation ( not summer tourist season), good wine for a decent price, fresh fish and pasta were enjoyed by all. Service was excellent.
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.
It was great, good service,good food. Great neighborhood restaurant
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!!
Best Italian family restaurant in lower Manhattan. Bravo Giuseppe for your talent and hospitality. A superb place for lunch or a special dinner with homemade
Pizzas, pastas and gorgeous fresh seafood. Wow!
Absolutely delicious and authentic Italian food. The waiter and owner were wonderful. Looking forward to returning.
The staff was extremely attentive and courteous! The owner and manager were very friendly and welcoming and made us feel right at home! It was a true Italian experience and the meal was delicious! I would highly recommend to family and friends!
What a gem! The food was excellent, and the staff was very attentive. They made my birthday celebration very special. Great discovery, and we will be back when we next visit NYC!
Our Christmas Eve dinner was absolutely lovely. A superb meal, beautiful wine pairings, excellently served - what a fabulous way to celebrate.
Great friendly staff. Would try again - the food was average but maybe since it was a holiday pre fix menu it was general.
Loved this place! I came here for a quiet date night with my boyfriend, and it was perfect. Cozy, romantic vibe. Authentic Italian food. We will be back!
This restaurant was an excellent selection. The atmosphere was laidback while offering an upscale feeling as well. The service and food was spectacular! We will definitely be back!
Food was decent, though the bread served was cold and hard, and the Zuppa de Pesce was quite salty and skimped on the toasted bread. The biggest issue though was that they kept the restaurant quite cold, and on a snowy day that's an issue.
Amazing food and ambience
We have been coming to Acqua at Peck Slip for years to celebrate family birthdays. The neighborhood is great, with ample on-street parking, and a parking lot right across the street for convenience for out-of-town guests. The ambience is beautiful; warm and inviting, and the wait staff is friendly and accommodating. I've never had a hard time getting a table; it's pleasantly full, but not something you need to reserve a month in advance. And the pasta is amazing. All in all, one of my favorites in the city.
This is one of my favorite local restaurants in the financial district the food is always great the ambience is always friendly and warm you'll never have a bad meal at Acqua
The advent of jazz on Mondays is great and the musicians were very competent, however, it is a smallish space and it was very difficult to have a conversation with a sax playing in the background. The food and service as always were very good.
Service was wonderful...waiter, host, everyone, was very welcoming.
Such a lovely restaurant- Staff are very attentive and the food is fabulous. Really enjoyed our date night here and so nice to find a lovely spot in the local Seaport area!!
