Tonight was my second visit, lunch the first time, dinner tonight. Both very nice meals. Consistent. Service was very good both times. Nothing fancy tonight, but the Mozzarella en carozza was fresh and a nice sized appetizer. A caesar salad for me with fresh (nice and warm) grilled chicken and also prosciutto, a nicely presented dish and very tasty, good... More

I have been to Aquista a few times. The food is very good but a little pricey. They have lunch specials that are great and very reasonable, but cash only. Worth carrying the cash!!!!

I have been at this place twice before and found it unpretentious but the good was good. Since then the place was enlarged but we did not enjoy the food. I had veal Marsala, my wife had Branzino, neither was good.The wine selection was decent.

When my daughter lived close by, we used to go there at least twice a week. We never had a bad meal.

Pretty extensive menu with pizzas, salads, hot heroes, pastas, meat/fish/chicken dishes. we shared a nice appetizer of grilled vegetables and mozzarella. I had salmon with risotto, others had lasagna, chicken marsala and pasta with... More

The food is tasty, priced well and the service is always friendly. I would recommend the gnocchi, it's homemade and you can taste the difference ! (A rare find !) But ....... More

My daughter took me to this quaint place twice during my visit in NYC. It was one of her favorites while she attended St. John's Uni. She says they have remodeled since she was last there and I think they did a terrific job. The new decor gives the restaurant an upscale yet comfortable feel that matches the quality yet... More

Acquista has been our go-to neibourhood restaurant for about 13 years, that fact alone should tell you enough to want to go there. The food and service are always good, the staff is friendly, polite, and attentive. The specials are always well planned and well executed. The wine list is good, the pizza is super!! Check out their Valentine's Day... More

Was just here last night and quite a few other times and it hasn't disappointed. Ordered the seafood pasta special for only $22 which included a lobster tail, shrimps and mussels. Hubby usually orders the chicken marsala. Must try if you're in the area.
