Located on the top of a hill with a breathtaking view of the shore. The service is friendly, food is great and one of the best wine lists that I've seen. Very well chosen labels that perfectly match to type of food served by the restaurant.

We were in Acqua last evening and it was not our first visit but probably the last one!
We had booked a table but there was NO place available when we got there.
Luckily there was a couple leaving and we waited just some minutes. Anyway...careless I would say.
The whole experience was really upsetting. We had to call waiters many times to order either drinks or dessert and even the bill. We ended up standing up and paying it at the cashier!
We complained and the girl there said she could give us complimentary coffees. OMG!
We did not want compliment...we deserved to be well served at a place that charges 20% more than the ones of its kind!
The view is great but they cannot take it for granted!
It is a pricy location and they need to correspond. What a shame!

Worst bread Ive tried in my life, for $6 a person. Made in house.
Beautiful view and otherwise good food.

Seafood is incredible. Service great. View is amazing. Great place for a romantic dinner. This place is not cheap tough but worth it.

I've been to Acqua with my parents to celebrate my father's birthday.
Although the climate wasn't a wonderful one (it was cloudy and with some rain) the sea view is breathtaking!!! There are tales outside on the deck. We ordered couvert - the caramelizada onion with cream cheese pâté was incredible!!!! As main course we ordered fish covered with nuts and served with vatapá - delicious! - shrimps with palm heart risotto - outstandingly delicious!!
Don't rush... take your time and enjoy it at most.... Prices are a little salty, but for a great occasion it's worthwhile!!!
