Marissa the server and "Richard the Bread Man" were fantastically attentive. Food was impeccable.
Our first dining experience at Aqua Pazza won’t be the last. The maitre d and wait staff were so accommodating, professional and downright pleasant and friendly. Great and varied menu. Each one of our many appetizer and main meal selections was fresh and delicious. Although it was a beautiful and bustling Saturday night in the North End, we never felt rushed or crowded. Thank you to everyone at Aqua Pazza for an all-around great experience. We look forward to seeing you again real soon.
The outdoor seating was a little noisy but when it is on the street you can't expect it any different. Very good service and very well done classic such as spaghetti and clams and chicken parmigiana. Definitely would go back again.
So delicious! Such a fun experience! We will definitely be back again.
The food was excellent. Service was friendly, accurate, quicker than expected. Will definitely be back to try more.
Good eggplant parmigiana and wild boar pappardelle, but the octopus was really terrible. Wonderful service, very friendly waitress and overall ambience.
My wife and I had Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail and Oysters for appetizers. They were good. For main course, we had the Gnocchi and the Risotto of the Day (seafood risotto). My wife loved her Gnocchi. The seafood risotto was okay. Nothing stunning. I also tried the margarita di palma. Not my cup of tea to have OJ in it.
Amazing good. Great service. Authentic Italian cuisine. Will go back and recommend to all!
I've eaten at other DePasquale restaurants and they're all good too. This was amazing. Would recommend to anyone and would go back again.

Wonderful experience. Excellent food, great service and pleasant ambiance in always fun Northend.
Excellent service and amazing food. Staff was lovely and smart. Lively Boston North End. What a fun Sunday evening.
Delicious! The wait staff was very professional and the ambiance is fantastic.
Horrible service and unfriendly staff that rushed our group out of their restaurant. Food was mediocre at best. Wouldn’t recommend or return, as there are other restaurants nearby with much better food and service.
Absolutely delicious. All of the seafood was incredible.
We had a fantastic meal. This property is gorgeous--modern without being industrial or impersonal. What really set the night apart was the outstanding service we received from Antonio--a true professional. Will certainly be back.
Service was quite poor and menu was way overpriced compared to other restaurants in the North End. The food was good but nothing spectacular.
Wonderful food and lovely ambience. The waiter Gio is fantastic. Eating outside is especially nice.
Love this place. Want to be a regular
A lovely evening!! We sat at a great table by the windows and had a fun view of the North End. Our waiter Antonio was the best!! He steered us not to order too much. And our fish was excellently prepared and filleted. Definitely the waiter makes for a super dining experience. Loved it!!
Love the North End!
They clearly could not handle the number of guests they tried to serve. It was a disorganized chaotic mess. We were not seated until 45 past our arrival (35 minutes past our reservation time), which felt even longer with no comfortable place to wait. Our server himself was great, and he was clearly trying, but so much was out of his control. The food was very good, though it took a long time.
That night was major fail by management.
Exceptional fresh oysters and pasta. The best we had in Boston. Ambiance was frenetic and loud; not someplace to have any kind of conversation unless you don't mind yelling across the table. The service was rough. That is not to say the staff didn't do a good job because once they got to you, they did. The night we were there, it was very short staffed with everyone's hair on fire. Rough.
Wonderful dinner! I had the spaghetti and clams--always a classic! The other folks in the group had lobster pillows, spaghetti and meatballs, and zucchini pasta. There was not a crumb left at the end of the meal--always a good sign!
First night out with friends after a long year! Hostess and manager both so friendly. Reservations were at 6:30, table wasn’t quite ready, no big deal, went and had drinks at the bar. Great vibe including staff and patrons. Table in the corner in front of the window, even though it was pouring, still a great view. Had oysters recommended by our fabulous waiter, spaghetti and clams, wild boar ragu, chicken parm -everything delicious and perfectly portioned. Can’t wait to go back!
The staff was very friendly, the restaurant had an inviting feel. It’s very small, but nice and modern.
The lobster pillows were delicious, served with a tasty sauce that also contained pieces of lobster meat.
The staff were awesome. Super nice!!
Excellent all around. Highly recommend. We’ll be back
menu contains a wide selection of classic Italian dishes beautifully prepared. The service is exceptional.
Outstanding. Definitely found its formula since its earliest days as the original Mare. Highly recommend
We returned to Aqua Pazza for our first dinner out in Boston for more than a year on a lovely June Friday evening. Other diners were having a great time being out and enjoying splendid food and drink, as we were. The restaurant was packed and the vibe energetic, but service was up to the usual quality. The food was excellent. It's hard to top spaghetti vongole at Aqua Pazza -- lovely presentation, perfectly toothsome pasta, and tender clams. The tuna crudo was fresh and excellent -- and the squash blossoms crisp on the outside and their goat cheese filling deliciously creamy. There's a nice selection of wines by the glass -- we particularly enjoyed a pinot noir from the North of Italy, medium-bodied and nicely acidic. The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor tables and about 6-8 seats at the bar, so there's something for everyone.
So so good! I got the manicotti and it was amazing! The oysters were also very good. The staff made sure we were never low on drinks and bread. What a great experience!
excellent food and great service. very pleased!!!
1. No need for reservation because you will be waiting either way.
2. Even tho you reserve to be seated outside(they don’t acknowledge such thing) you will be seated wherever there’s an open table after waiting for a while.
3. Waited for about 30-40 min for the main course (we’re no longer hungry)
Fabulous food! Bread and pesto were delicious. The Lobster Pillows were excellent and the Chicken Parm was cooked to perfection!
the services was excellent even on a very busy Friday night! The pasta was excellent, great wine choices.
One small thing (minor) the burrata was very cold so not creamy and tasty because wasn't out of fridge for long enough to make it tasty. But that was very minor.
Great overall experience.
Our go- to place. Always impeccable. And there is a great Barolo (Mauro Molino) on the wine list for a very reasonable price .
This place is top shelf all around! I will definitely be back.
Had to wait a bit for our reserved table but the staff and food completely made up for it.
We had such a wonderful dining experience! Unfortunately it’s about a week out from our dinner so I forget our server’s name but he was so pleasant, professional, informative, and accommodating.
Best spot in the North End for Italian fine dining...no question! Food, ambience and especially the service is top notch! Thank you to Giovanni for a wonderful evening and we will be recommending this place to everyone.
