    OMGosh! What a wonderful experience we had at Acqua di Luca! It was my husband and I, and our two children, 7 and 2. They were very accommodating. The food was wonderfully prepared. I had the filet, that was absolutely perfect at medium. The truffle potatoes are so, so good. The raviolis are perfection and the salmon was great. End the night with espresso. Enjoy your evening at Acqua di Luca.

    Acqua is a lively and energetic spot with great food, strong wine list and excellent service. Steven took great care of us over the course of the night including giving us a wine tasting opportunity to finalize our choices. Definitely recommend and will be back!

    We ate dinner here before Thursday night Browns game. The restaurant was loud and crowded as expected. Our server did a great job and the food came out quickly. The scallop appetizer was delicious. I had the crab leg and risotto dish which was excellent. My husband had the short ribs and really enjoyed it. Both portions were quite large.

    This is quickly becoming one of the finest dining establishments in the Cleveland Area. The question is which is better Luca (Original) or Aqua De Luca - tough question both are a foodie paradise with gourmet options that rival the best dining in Vegas or New York City. Aqua de Luca is a beautiful space, service was great, the wine list is perfect and my wife enjoyed the hand-crafted drinks. Appetizer: Hand-Made Crab Ravioli (Wow), Shrimp (Perfect), Pumpkin Lobster Gnocchi - (Trained Professionals)

    The food was fantastic. We had four appetizers - the mare, shrimp and the tuna which was a special. All were fantastic. We also had the crab meatballs which were also good, just not as good as the other three. Our meals were also all very good. I had the salmon which was cooked and seasoned perfectly and my husband had the lobster tail, which was also very good. The pasta that came with it was also great. Our only complaint was the service. Our waiter was not friendly or helpful and not at all what you expect in a restaurant as nice as this. If he had simply been that way once the restaurant got busy, i would probably have excused the behavior but he wasnt helpful from the moment we got there when there were very few people jn the restaurant. Overall I would go back because the food was that good. Hopefully the service gets better.

    Great spot in the city. Food is beyond good. I went down to celebrate my birthday and they surprised me with Tiramisu and a candle. Also, they took a picture of my table and gave it to me in a very cute envelope wishing me Happy Birthday. Ambience is good and very casual. I highly recommend this place.

    Food is very very good. Can not say it is a "good value" as that would mean is was lowly priced. It isn't, but the quality is there, so it is a "fair value".

    The service was great, and the food was even better. This was a business meal (for two) on a Friday evening following an afternoon meeting, and I requested a table outside. We shared the crab balls and the scallops for appetizers and the Halibut and the Salmon for main courses - along with some beer. Our waiter was always there, but inobtrusive, and the food was stellar. A great way to end the day. Yes, there was some street noise, but hey it's the city. Will go back for sure, this time with my wife!

    We were so excited to try this restaurant, it came highly recommended. The wine list is amazing, we love Italian wine so... but were very disappointed when the wine was brought to the table and offered to my husband, not me, the person who ordered it. he steered the server to me. Beet salad was delicious, wish there were a couple more slices of beet (4 slices) Dinner was delicious and very well prepared, I had the halibut, cooked wonderfully. My husband had the Wagyu Osso Buco, he raved about it, the shrimp with it was a bit rubbery. We had this delectable dessert.(cannot remember name) food was top notch all in all. Then our server brought the check, looked right at my husband and said I'll take this at your convenience, no rush. Dinner was my treat that night. In this day and age, why would you assume the man at the table is paying? As we were leaving, he wished my husband a great night and thanked him for coming. I was quite a few steps ahead to grab our Lyft. I hope this is not how you treat the female members of your staff but I fear this behavior is probably not just a one-time situation. Much to my chagrin I left a generous tip but I will certainly be telling this tale to friends and family. I, for one, have had enough misogyny in my lifetime. Please let this be a teaching moment.

    Lovely experience. Wanted to try everything on the menu. The only negative was the $50 for valet parking. Went on Google and it said $10. Normal is actually $12, but the Browns were playing. What a rip off! The restaurant does not control the valet, but they gave us a gift certificate to apply to dinner. Helped. Next time I will make sure there are no major events!

    Seafood and steak were both way over cooked and dry. The General Manager came to the table and said he would bring out replacements which took an hour. Had to order another bottle of wine just to sit there for a total of 2 hours waiting for edible food. The General Manager was rude and had an attitude when we barely touched the replacement food because it was over cooked AND cold like it was sitting out the whole time waiting to be brought to the table. All-in-all, the bill was $350 for food that was eventually just fed to my dogs at home. I will never return to this place and will advise anyone and everyone to steer clear of this terribly managed place

    We came for our 10 year wedding anniversary. The service was great, staff was very accommodating when we got cold and wanted to move inside. The server was really helpful and kind but the kitchen took a pretty long time to get our food out. It was worth the wait however!

    Meals are overpriced. Order a veal chop medium rare...it came medium/welldone. Service was VERY slow. Cocktails were meager and poorly prepared. Impossible to have much of a conversation due to the noise level.
