    Great food, okay service

    We visited Acqua on a Sunday evening at the end of May. The restaurant is a little crowded with tables, but that seems to be fairly typical with the restaurants along Amsterdam on the Upper West Side. The wait staff were quick but sort of abrupt, not the most polite staff in the world. We ordered two appetizers between four people and they brought them out 10 minutes apart! I did not like that, especially as the doors were open to the patio and food became chilled quite quickly so we couldn't wait around to enjoy the first appetizer while the other two people went hungry waiting for theirs. At the end of the meal it seemed like the staff were really rushing us by clearing plates almost as soon as the last bite was put in our mouths - but then they took forever to bring the bill! However - all of that was made okay when the food did come! Two of us had the spinach and ricotta ravioli, which was incredible. The fried artichoke hearts were very good as well. The others in the party had the Sardinian pasta and the veal scallopini - both were deemed excellent. Dessert was even better - I HIGHLY recommend the banana and nutella crepes. Delicious, and my Dad actually considered ordering another piece of mascarpone cheesecake to bring home with him, he liked it that much. All in all, if all you care about is the food, you will love this place.

    Not really good

    I live very close and was excited to like this place. I have found the staff to be less than friendly and the food fair at best.

    Great neighborhood place

    We just moved into the neighborhood and decided to try this place with our family. Everything was great - the service, the atmosphere, the timing of the food, the flavors, and the portions. The warm spinach salad is wonderful, and you'll think the same if you think of it more as a side than a salad (I think of salads as cold). The lasagna was perfect for me (hot out of the brick oven), my cousin said that the appetizer shrimp salad was great, and two people who got fish dishes really enjoyed them. Everyone really enjoyed the Bianca pizza (I didn't try it). We didn't have dessert. Overall it's a quaint, delicious, and reasonable Italian place. I'm glad we found it.

    nice thin pizza

    Wish I had tried this place earlier. A friend told us it wasn't good so we skipped it until now, 2 years later! Everything I tried was quite good, though the tiramisu was not quite my style (I like more amarreto flavor & fluffiness than cakiness). Pizza was even thinner than what I expected in a thin crust, but a bit bigger as well. Braciola Di Pollo was great, and the spinach side was also tasty. Prices very reasonable, and not as loud & cramped as some of the nearby Italian restaurants. Service was friendly and prompt.

    Consistent and Delicious Neighborhood Find

    We live about 200 feet from Acqua and we feel very lucky to have such a great neighborhood restaurant. The service is great, you can always get a table but yet its in high demand. Its great for a quick bite or a place to meet friends. There is always a good special or the regular dishes such as the veal vitello and the polenta that are great. For a real treat the lasagna. Service is always friendly and neighborly.

    Crowded cardboard

    The pizza is like cardboard, the atmosphere crowded and noisy. Avoid

    Really recommend

    Have been coming here for the past year and really like it. The pasta is consistently very fresh and the wood burning pizza is great. Atmosphere is nice and have always had a great experience here!
