Several areas to dine outdoors, enclosed porch or indoor dining. Service was great, lunch food was average though wine was outstanding. Comfortable ambiance.
Sat outside even though inside was open. Just felt better distance outside to be safe with covid-19 out there. Good service and food. Will go back when they have music outside.
Overall it was a pleasant experience and great food and service.
The food and service were great. Tina was really great as our server. The only issue we had was the outdoor music was WAY too loud. It was a guitar player/singer, who was very good, but we literally had to yell across our table to converse. We mentioned it to the staff several times, and nothing was done about it.
Our night was cut short to go elsewhere so we could actually hear our conversation, while we would really have rather stayed and enjoyed our time at Aqua Viva.
Sat outside for lunch. Great service . Really good food. Try the salmon salad! The salmon is served separately and the salad had fresh cucumber and avocado. Very light for a summer day! Delicious! Nice selection of beer and of course, wine!
We started with a glass of wine and a glass of beer. Ordered a steak pasta, and the thin crust Margherita pizza - both were excellent. Service was fine. We would come back again.
The food and service were great and the ambience was charming. They have a lit "outside" area that was really inside, but very cozy. The parking is a bit of a challenge -- across the street and no handicapped spaces. They did not know how to use the Open Table gift card, so that was disappointing.
First time here and we will definitely be back. Food was very good, as was service. No complaints at all.
Delightful traditional Italian food! Lovely environment and loved our waitress. Illinois wines were ... um ... just ok. Food was great!!!
My husband and I absolutely love this restaurant! Chef prepares amazing dishes, and staff is both friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks especially to Shaye for making our visits so pleasant.
Great place.... great service as always.
Really enjoyed dinner. Food was outstanding! Service was very good and they were super busy but we never waited too long for anything. Kinda cramped seating but it was Valerine's weekend. Had reservations, no waiting, table was ready at 7:00. Would highly recommend.
Great food and service
The atmosphere was excellent as could easily hold conversation and never felt rush
We had to be in the screened in patio area since there was an event going on in the main dining area. It was warm though so that was fine. Food was great!!
Excellent food and wine, but expect high end prices. My wife and I ran up $145 bill, but we went all in with appetizers, entrees, dessert, wine, and tip. This price point isn’t for everyone. My wife and I have two smaller children and don’t get out much so we didn’t mind the splurge otherwise this place might be reserved for special occasions on our normal budget. I guess you could just go with pizza and a couple of cocktails for a more reasonable bill. Everything was great, service was a bit slow in the beginning, but that improved as the night continued. I don’t think it was the norm since everything improved. Overall it was a quality evening with great food, and we will visit again. Looking forward to the outside space this summer.
Food was excellent but needs restaurant needs improvement on ambience. Lighting was way too bright and TVs should not have been present and turned on in a fine dining establishment. Would recommend trying out this new restaurant in Batavia.
Food was great. Kind of cold where we are sitting. Service was very good.
We were there for New Years Eve and had a wonderful dinner. Our server, Shay was fabulous! She was so very nice and personable, they are very lucky to have her as part of their team!
The food was excellent, but the service wasn’t very good. It was slow and took a lot of time to get drinks. Since my son never got a glass of wine he asked for, he ended up going to the bar and getting it himself.
I had reservations for my two kids and I on Christmas Eve. We were sat in the bar at a high top which was very disappointing because I had reservations and two kids who shouldn’t have been in the bar. It took 20 minutes to have our waitress come to the table and then didn’t see her again the entire meal. The food was amazing and I understand that it was Christmas Eve, however, still disappointed.
We've been going to AcquaViva in Maple Park for years so we thought we'd try the location in Batavia.
Not impressed. The website indicates "business casual" -- it's definitely not business casual - jeans & t-shirt is fine. Service was a bit slow, especially since it wasn't that busy. We asked for addl salad dressing for our Cesar salad and never did get it. The food & wine are fabulous, as always, but the ambiance was lacking. This was our first and will be our last visit to the Batavia location - we'll stick with the more upscale Maple Park location that has fantastic ambiance and just as good of food. Oh - and once inside the ladies bathroom, the door knob is literally hanging on by a thread. Can't believe that wasn't immediately addressed.
A very pleasant surprise as this was our first visit and we definitely will be coming back. Food was excellent, drinks as well and reasonably priced and service was outstanding. Our waitress was very willing to work with our pace, set largely by drinks and conversation with friends. She checked now and then and responded to our queues. Overall, a really great dining experience.
The restaurant was very accommodating. The food was delicious and the wine wonderful.
Service was top notched and the staff was ready for us when we arrived on time.
It was a little hard to find and the entry was very dark. Christmas lights would have enhanced the stairs and surrounding uneven blacktop.
I like to see where I’m going and not fall.
Would rate zero starts if Open Table would let me. Wanted to dine at Veritas, but due to its unfortunate closing, we made a reservation at Acquaviva. WOW talk about second best! Showed up on time for our 6:15 reservation party of three - myself, my wife, and eight year old daughter. They were busy, so we waited patiently. Meanwhile, larger parties were seated ahead of us. It soon became obvious that no table was available for us. After twenty minutes of waiting (nothing offered for our trouble - no water, no appetizer, etc as often happens in other, better establishments, such as Veritas) we were finally shoved into the far corner of the bar, underneath a TV blaring obnoxious Holiday music. Unsatisfied, we left and had a nice dinner at El Taco Grande, 6 N. River Street, Batavia. I highly recommend El Taco Grande over Acquaviva! In fact, Acuaviva Batavia is going to have to work very hard to earn my business again. Stay away if you actually want to eat a meal.
Wonderful food, terrific service - you will love it.
Vickie was awesome once again!
Always good. A favorite restaurant for a really good meal. Fish, chicken, steak all great.
Great food, fresh seafood and pasta, great meatballs! Great wine pairing with specials!
Went on a Friday night for a first date, ambiance was great and had live music, still able to have a conversation though. Service was great and the food was perfect, actually portion size was more than I had expected, i Havel already recommended it to my friends
The stuffed artichoke appetizer is delicious! Our waitress was on top of things and provided great service.
It was an okay experience. But the restaurant was run like it just opened, rather than being open for a couple years. It took a while to get a server. Other things... 1) the specials were a handwritten copy - so unprofessional, 2) the place settings were set incorrect and we didn't even all have the proper silverware, 3) we had to ask for salt and pepper, it strangely wasn't on the table, 4) we were told there was no drink menu, though there is a whole list of great drinks on the website, we were finally given the "only" copy in the entire restaurant, 5) our drink orders were messed up and when we did get them the martinis were not that good - especially not for the price, 6) they ran out of certain types of pasta - how does this happen?... it overall was just a rough experience for our group. The food was tasty, but it was just over priced for the level of service and the lack of professional dining experience. It was unfortunate...
My food was a little overdone the alfredo sauce was pasty and the pasta looked like it has dried out waiting to be served. My husband enjoyed his grouper. Portions were just right. The room was cold...several people kept their coats on as we did. All in all we would try it again.
Place was vary cold and noisy
food was excellent and services was good
Drinks where way to expensive ($13.00 Cosmo ridicules )if I go back I will only drink water
Food & service were outstanding! Our only complaint was about the mostly non-heated side porch making us cold... Side note: owner said they were working on that issue.
Very pricey!!! The food was good but it was just a little too expensive. And the wine list was really small.
Food is fantastic, so is the wine and all the servers are friendly and accommodating! Hope this place stays put!!
We started with soup, tasted good and loaded with vegetables, but both bowls were cold. I got a glass of rose, which they produce themselves- it was fruity, sweet, and enjoyable and a pizza. The pizza was middle of the road. Next time, I will order off the regular menu. My wife enjoyed the whitefish, but they needed to do a better job in removing the skin (it was left on intermittently).
The restaurant is loud and drafty , be sure to dress warmly if it is cold outside.
We enjoy the flavor of the pizza, however, this is the second time we have ordered pizza and they did something wrong. First time, it was not on thin crust. This time they forgot the green peppers and the double crust was burnt on the bottom. Hopefully the third time it will all be perfect!
Great place to pick up Italian food in Batavia. The pizza at other tables looked great, and every item we had was great!
