Fabulous food, great service from the moment we entered until we left. We were told the menu changes daily, which makes it a fun place for regulars. The Tuscan Vegetable soup, hit the spot!

It is spacious enough so that one can enjoy some privacy. The food is truly gourmet and some variety. The menu does change, but I have not had bad luck with any entree.

This is a nice restaurant that I definitely will recommend as well as visit again.

Pros: Appetizers are unusual and great (as are the entrees)

Cons: A bit slow on Service

This is a really great Italian place, with really authentic food and great flavors. Their menu is limited, but it changes everyday so you get a good variety everytime you eat there!

I'm really surprised about these reviews. I walked in with my family (group of 6) at 8:30 on a Friday and we waited for a table only for about fifteen minutes at the bar with some nice glasses of wine. There was another table of 6 right next to us, so I really don't know what LeeGee is talking about. Maybe they had already filled up when he was trying to get a table?

We had the fried rice b@lls (citysearch thinks "b@lls" is an "inappropriate word") and a salad with roasted grapes that I wasn't too fond of but my husband really loved. I tried a bite of my daughter's soup.Yum! but it was too much to have as an appetizer, at least for one person. We had a very interesting pasta dish with sausage that my husband was nuts over, a juicy roasted chicken and an amazing delicately spiced p0t (p0t is also a bad word) roast to finish up. We couldn't find any room to try a desert.

Our server was very friendly and we saw a lot of him, so again, I'm surprised by the other reviews on here. Go back! We need more places like this in Alameda and especially on Webster street. Alameda seems to be finally be catching up to the rest of the world in terms of a dining scene.

Acquacotta should have a sign on their door that says, "Do not enter if you have a party of 5 or more." My parents from out of town, my husband, my son, and I attempted to dine at this retaurant last night, which we had read about and heard from friends was good. When we told the hostess that we had five in our party, she looked confused and talked to the waiter. He came over and told us that they didn't have tables for five people. We looked at him incredulously and suggested that my 9-year-old son could sit on a corner, or, could we not put two tables together? He just smiled and told us that they couldn't do that. There was an empty table for 2 near us and we asked why we couldn't put that together with a table for 4, but he just kept his patronizing smile and told us that the tables were different sizes and they couldn't do that. We left in shock. They were not accomodating and didn't seem to want our business. In fact, we felt discriminated against for having too many in our party! We decided to go to Cera una Volta, another Italian restaurant in Alameda. They put 2 tables together, and we had a wonderful meal! I highly recommend the spinach canneloni and the gnocci with gorgonzola sauce. The customer service was excellent - five stars! Hopefully, Acquacotta will go out of business, and a place that wants customers will replace it!

Pros: none

Cons: Didn't even get to try the food, as they wouldn't seat us!

Had our first meal at this new Alameda restaurant tonight. Loved the bar - bartender was very friendly and cocktails were great! The appetizers we ordered were equally great - especially enjoyed the asparagus with ricotta salada and the risotto appetizer were as tasty as we had been told. When we finally were seated at our table the evening started to slip a bit. Service was extremely slow - took nearly half an hour to receive the soup and another half hour before our entrees arrived. This could have been easier to take had our waiter taken any notice at all! He showed up to take our orders - rushed in (interrupting conversation) to ask if we might like drinks - and never showed up again until our dinners were finally served! We all thoroughly enjoyed our entrees - very fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked , well-balanced flavors...unfortunately the poor service took away from this. Perhaps the friendly young woman who seated us could take a more personal interest in the tables...perhaps the kitchen could speed up a bit... perhaps they could interview for new wait staff........... We will return later in the summer for a comparison and hope to embrace this new addition to Alameda's limited gourmet establishments.
