    We had a guy next to us who spoke at volume 10 the whole night. I heard about his recent IPO and a lot of other stuff I would have preferred to skip. Otherwise it was great.

    Amazing! The food was great and the service was even better! If you’re looking for that perfect spot, Acquerello is it! Just be prepared for a check comparable with the experience.
