Fantastic food and service
Over the summer I was studying in Firenze and Acqua al 2 was my favorite restaurant there! I was so happy to hear about this sister restaurant in the States. My boyfriend and I made the trip down to D.C and although the monuments are cool, eating here was what I was looking forward to the most. I was skeptical because I didn't know if a restaurant in the U.S could match my experience in Italy, but the D.C location did not disappoint! The food was delicious and the staff was so friendly. I really felt like I traveled back to Italy. We were in D.C for two nights and ended up coming again the second night because we just didn't think any place could top this one!
I wasn’t prepared for the type of menu offered to us. In retrospect, we should have ordered differently (family style instead of individually).
Service was great! Before coming to the restaurant, I made the mistake of cancelling my reservation and called the restaurant as soon as they opened. The hostess wasn't able to pull back my opentable reservation at first but was able to get me in the system.
Our waitress was spot-on! She was personable and made sure that we enjoyed our food and let us know that she is there to accommodate our needs. The food was also fantastic. The ricotta/spinach balls with tomato sauce and cheese was the best thing I ate there and I recommend sharing the appetizer with someone else, as it filled me pretty quickly.
My family enjoyed their entrees very much. My father had the Artic Char and said it was delicious and my aunt had the fusilli with spicy sauce and it was definitely spicy! I had rigatoni with mozzarella and eggplant. I wasn't used to the eggplant being mushed up but it was still tasty. The pasta was cooked to perfection, just al dente!
My father and I each had tiramisu for dessert and it was really good! If I lived anywhere near D.C. I would love to go more often.
Delicious food, excellent service. Friendly, accommodating staff. Definitely recommend.
SPECTACULAR! Had dinner once before so came for lunch/brunch. Simply divine
Absolutely delicious pasta, served by a wait staff that obviously know the menu and enjoy the restaurant. Great experience!
My wife and I went to Acqua Al 2 for Valentine's Day, and it did not disappoint! The food was great, the service was spectacular, and the ambience was impeccable. It was intimate and cozy.
Food was amazing, but very frustrated to find that there was an $85 fixed price menu with no heads up from Open Table.
This is a very nice neighborhood restaurant with simple, good Italian food. The place is very lively and would not recommend for a romantic dinner.
