Acqua Ristorante Mediterraneo is a two-story Italian and Mediterranean restaurant overlooking the Saugatuck River. The exterior of the building looks like it could be nestled in some small port town in Italy, and the inside is no different. Classic Mediterranean decor lines the walls and bright blues and soft tans perfectly reflect the coastal Italian aesthetic.
In keeping with its seaside theme, most of Acqua's menu revolves around seafood. Great appetizers on the menu include clams in a white wine garlic sauce and a deep-fried calamari in a robust and flavorful marinara. As for main courses, guests should try the seared sea bass, linguine del mar, or peppered yellowfin tuna with rhubarb sweet onion potasso. If diners aren't looking for seafood Acqua also does a tasty chicken Milanese, roasted veal tenderloin and Kobe beef ravioli. Be sure to pair your meal with one of Acqua's fine Italian wines as well.
Excellent restaurant! Food is always good. Service is great and the ambiance very pleasant. One of my favorites!
The staff devotes so much attention to the clients that you cannot help but have a good time. The food is excellent with a wide variety of excellent choices and the wines offer a well-rounded selection. The attention to detail is a big plus. Always made to feel welcomed even when the place is bustling with a large evening crowd. Get a drink at the bar and then sit for a fine dinner.
Went during restaurant week. Good food and portions for the price. Waiters were attentive. Steak I had was flavorful and tender.
We came for Restaurant Week and will definitely return. This treat in the heart of Westport surpassed our expectations. The service was friendly and fast, and the food was delicious--I loved my fish and my husband enjoyed his chicken. The salads were great, and good portions for both courses meant we left Acqua full. Next time we'll try some drinks!
Gets you half way up the mountain to learn the meaning of life...not to be missed
Perfectly cooked fish, delicious Cesar salads and very attentive and friendly service!
Terrible service and arrogant and ignorant attitude by waiter in not giving us our booked choice of upper level table and trying to ignore complaints. Told us we had a delicious meal. Asked if we wanted to pay for more wine.
First time here, so didn't know what to expect? Friday night, nice crowd. When we arrived the manager offered us options to where we would like to sit (upstairs, downstairs, or outside on the patio), and from his warm greeting until the last bite of our Suoflle everything was spot on delicious! Thank you Marc, and the great team at Acqua.....you guys made our first experience memorable!
Salad barely had any dressing. Food was bland. Wait staff was unprofessional and rude!!!!!
Have been here several times. This time the service was a nightmare for us and all others at the restaurant--we were actually joking with each other how bad things were.
