About Acqua Restaurant

With a waterfront view for the eyes and locally-sourced Italian food for the palette, Acqua hits all the right notes for a memorable dining experience. Executive Chef Elijah Allen an industry veteran, combines his upscale culinary sensibilities with classic recipes, creating something at once fresh and familiar. Take the Beeler's Farm pork shank, for instance, which arrives braised with organic white sweet potato puree. The dinner menu also includes the likes of Ragu alla Bolognese, Tiger Shrimp Scampi. No matter what innovative twist winds up on the plate, though, the amazing view of the marina from the restaurant's two covered decks is sure to impress. The only way this picturesque scene could be any more social-media-worthy is if it included the chef's chocolate souffle cake on the table, a top sidecar cocktail in your hand, and a photo-bombing cat wearing sunglasses.
