Excellent food & excellent service, a little pricey & a little cramped, but totally worth it.

Really lovely setting and ambience. Great choices on the menu — the orata was delicious and we all enjoyed the cacio e pepe arancini. First time dining at Aqua Pazza and it will not be the last.

The food was great and service pretty good but so loud and tight. I supposed that's fairly typical for the North End though.

We had a fantastic dinner last evening ... started with oysters and a delicious eggplant appetizer... we shared a nice bottle of red, the short ribs and cacio e pepe pasta dish.. finished with an unconstructed tiramisu. I would highly recommend this restaurant...usually busy so make reservations!

Was seated at table right in front of the raw bar so e had servers coming up to both sides of us picking up their orders, I didn't think with a reservation we'd get such a horrible table! I asked if we could move to the bar as there was only 1 couple sitting their and it was more private. We ordered bottle of prosecco as celebrating our anniversary. My husband got the fish which was good, but dry. I got ceasar salad & brussel sprouts which were delicious. I love this place even if we did get crappy table,

My teenage son ordered spaghetti and meatballs, smallest portion I have ever seen for a dinner meal. He was not even close to full after he was done eating. Home made pasta was really tasty, but overall food was a bit pricy for the portions. Quality was very good.

The food is the same good quality that I’ve experienced at other restaurants in this group. We had the aqua pazza and the veal chop. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious but pricey. The entrance to this place is a little awkward and tight with customers and servers squeezing to get through.

I really love everything about Aqua Pazza; the neighborhood location, excellent service, and the food is fantastic. Members of our party are gluten and dairy sensitive, and the restaurant is always able to accommodate. The GF pasta is delicious. We will definitely keep coming back.

The manicotti was really just cheese, fresh pasta, tomato sauce, and basil - but my goodness, it was the best "classic" pasta I've ever had. The risotto of the day was deeply flavorful - the burrata was flavorful. The wine selection was on-point.

This was our second time at Aquapazza in 2 weeks, it was that good! The staff was accomodating and creative when it came to our dietary restrictions and we were seated quickly. We would have loved to sit inside, but it was a busy weekend. We will probably visit again, but try during the week.

I made a reservation for 3 thru open table and received a confirmation email stating such. When we arrived. the reservation was only for 2. The manager made arrangements for a table, unfortuantly it was next to the open raw bar and an allergy issue caused problems. There were no other tables and we were moved outside. We froze, the food was served cold, and the service was not the best. They have massive seating outside and clearly the expanded capacity and the staff/kitchen is no suited to handle 2X the business. The tried hard, but it was not a good experience

Friendly staff and beautiful restaurant! I felt like the food was good, but not delicious. At this price point I usually experience everything as amazing, and this was good, but not amazing. I might try again and see if maybe ordering something different would be better, as the ambiance was quite lovely and the staff were great.

Food and service were excellent. Tables were very close together inside so we felt more comfortable dining outside which the hostess quickly accommodated. The outdoor heater we were next to was broken. Open Table reminder about reservation said that I may also valet at Bricco on 241 Hanover Street. I drove to Bricco, saw no valet, and when I called Bricco the woman said they had no valet and had never had valet. We were 15 minutes late to our reservation after traffic, garage parking and the walk over. Ended up being fine but would have planned differently knowing this in advance. Zucchini blossom appetizer was particular excellent. I was surprised that the bar doesn't have Grey Goose.

Food was great, server was attentive, best espresso I’ve ever had. Shellfish tower was good but probably not worth the $$. Only thing that was frustrating was I had a reservation for 7 and wanted to sit inside, host said it was going to be a long wait even being on time with the reservation. Not enough heat lamps outside.

We really enjoyed our meal at Aqua Pazza, and we will definitely be returning next time we are in Boston! Our only complaint was the server spilled a decent amount of water on my husband, but hey, accidents happen and it definitely didn’t impact our great experience.
