Unusual neighborhood location for this high end classic italian cuisine. Amazing white truffles in season, outstanding hand made pastas, meats, cheese cart for dessert. Mouth watering food at competitive prices\r

We have heard great reccomendations from friends about Acquerello Restaurant and we decided to try it out one day on my birthday. We found out that they hold the number two spot in the 10 best Italian restaurants in America. The place is warm and inviting with a dark beamed ceiling and multi-colored glass windows. I had their herb roasted veal and love it. Each bite was delicious. The service was excellent, the waiter was warm and friendly. Their prices are expensive though, the veal was $32 alone. Wish I could afford to go here more often.

Had dinner recently, enjoyed the chef tasting menu with paired wines, we thought it
was very good value as well. Understated elegance, great service and excellent wine list. We will return.

Pros: Tasting Menu

This place is just tired. It's in a run-down part of town and is shopworn. Put it out of its misery and shot the place. The food is just not that good and unless you're an old Lady with a lot of money you won;t like it.

While this place might be a bit too "old-world" to younger diners, the food and the service were simply first rate. A true gem in the city. Perhaps people who have been to Europe will appreciate this place a lot better. You have to try

The food at Acquerello reminds me of restaurants in Italy that look towards France for inspiration such as Osteria Saddler. While the food is very good, it is overly worked and too elaborate in presentation. The wine list however is

I have been going to Acquerello for several years. The restaurant has evolved and has been consistently excellent. Not your typical fare but more refined and sophisticated dining similar to one or two stars Michelin Italian restaurant.

Pros: Food, Extensive Wine List, Intimate

This was stiff and pretentious. Uncomfortable and overdone. Food was good, but atmosphere was ridiculous. Restaurant was virtually empty, but still wasn't private because of the bull pen where the tables don't offer individual privacy.

Editorial from

Named for the watercolors that line the walls, Acquerello's food is anything but delicate. Instead come here for rich representations of Italy's finest cuisine. The menu changes often, but if available, begin with a delicate Parmesan…
