What looks like an unassuming place on the ground floor opens up into quite a large restaurant on the fist floor. Very good Italian fare, with excellent service. The menu is eclectic and all our dishes were well presented and superbly cooked.

Acqua has become a classic restaurant in Westport, but they never grow stale. Food and service is good. Menu eclectic and very tasty. In the summer they have outdoor seating. Nice to sit at while the sun sets. Always a good experience.

Been many times. Lunch and dinner. Good drinks. Wines. Dover sole is wonderful when available. Halibut another favorite. The brick oven pizza also a good choice.

This is one of Westport's leading restaurants, and the food is generally a contemporary delight. I like the hummus spread and bread, the lobster dishes and the personal-size pizzas. Ask to sit by one of the windows that looks out at the Saugatuck River, which...More
