Ever since we moved to the neighborhood we wondered about this little corner italian restaurant. Tonight we had the chance...and it ended up being the worst restaurant experience we've had so far in this city, and let me tell you, we are not very picky! My wife and I ordered the Rissotto with shrimp (daily special), mussels, and salad. Once you are seated it is easy to notice the extremely petite table size (even for two people) and even this didn't prevent them from serving food on gigantic plates... They first served us the salad and the mussels, we weren't impressed with the food but it was decent enough. However, the rissotto came after 45 minutes, and it was not until we reminded them twice, even then it was not that good. On top of that, we got only one glass of water each, yes no refills and they tried to make up for the rissotto incident by offering "ANYTHING" else on the house, we decided to order one drink each but after another 5 minute wait we were told that we were allowed only 1 beer! So to wrap up this review, we are certain that they won't get any visits from us again.

I've only been in once to order take-out as Aquamarina is down the street from my apt and I'm really glad I gave it a shot! On this particular day, the front end staff consisted of lots of young people who seemed more interested in gossiping and texting than working. So it took a while for me to be initially greeted and made for very slow service. But the girls were very nice once they got around to me. And the kitchen looked to be at the usual NYC pace to pump out food as quickly as they could. Please note that I have no basis for comparison yet during other hours/days at the restaurant. So take that comment about the front end staff with a grain of salt. I ordered the Seafood Lasagna. It took about 15 minutes to get my food because they made it to order. I was starting to get annoyed at that point but quickly changed my tune once I dug into this dish! I DEVOURED this rich, creamy, thick, decadent lasagna overflowing with a dense bechamel sauce mixed with cheeses and a generous amount of scallops, REAL crab meat, and shrimp. Just know that you have to like cheese/dairy to like this dish. And I recommend sharing unless you're looking to spend 1/2 a day's calories on this dish (which is WELL WORTH IT!). I'd like to go back and sit by the window when I have time to spare for a nice laid back dinner date. The rest of the menu looks very interesting, the place is cute and is located at a busy intersection which makes for good people watching, and it'd be a nice way to relax when you're not in a rush.

I could have easily pulled some instant noodles and canned sauce out and done an equally boring job. For the price and food you get, you're better off going to the supermarket and cooking on your own.

I've ordered several times with Aquamarina. They got the order wrong twice, and the last time I tried to order they kept me waiting on hold for 10 min. Called back, again the same thing. Called back, and when I complained she said she was too busy to get back to the phone. Ridiculous!

nice friendly neighborhood italian. try the tuna or swordfish. Perfect if you are going to the United Palace Theater which is 4 blocks away.

The food is definitely affordable, however for the same price or less you can make better at your house. i've tried this place several times and it has been disappointing every single time. like i said, there are some very affordable deals, but it isn't worth a dime more.
