Definitely make a reservation for this place, and be prepared your table might not be ready as soon as you arrive as it is very popular place. But the food is really amazing and worth the visit. This was honestly one of our favorite meals in Italy. Order the pasta sampler and the steak sampler (they might not be listed... More

The fact that people queue before evening opening ( at 7pm) and were still queuing when we left (at just before 9pm) is an indication of just how popular this place is. Many of the clients are American- attracted perhaps by the steak with blueberry sauce!- but there were locals and others too. The food is of very good quality,... More

Recommended by a college student, this proved to be even better. The blueberry steak is exceptional and something I could never replicate. My teen daughter had the chef's choice pasta sampler, which comes as courses. Delicious! We were able to try several things and they were all stellar!

We really liked the romantic atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was very good and tasty. They have very good sauces for your meat. The place is very good and there were a lot of foreigners.

While I'm not keen on going places that are full of Americans, there's a very good reason why they go. The food is fantastic. We'd heard that it was best to get the sampler plates, meaning a sampler plate of pasta would include five of the pastas from their list of about ten different ones and it would be the... More

Together with friends House wanted to taste good pasta we had dinner at this place. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant is well decorated. We chose a variety of pasta (fresh and dry) but the only outstanding pasta was the penne all ragu with porcini mushrooms. The artichoke pasta was disappointingly tasteless and the pasta sample was very... More

My husband and I visited acqua al 2 in February 2017. It was recommended to us by two different people. When we entered we were about confused by the menu, but the very convincing waitress practically ordered for us and we couldn't be more pleased! The samplers are the way to go in this restaurant because you get to try... More

Acqua Al 2 was recommended by a blogger I follow. It did not disappoint. I had the steak sampler. If the server tries to tell you one person can eat it, it's a lie. But I almost ate it all, and I don't regret it. It was one of the best things I've ever eaten. The wine was also lovely... More

Small Italian restaurant. We ordered the pasta sampler (5 different pastas of the day) and the steak sampler (3 kinds of steak - cooked in balsamic glazed, cooked with blueberries and grilled). It was fantastic! The menu is in Italian (which shows it's not a tourist trap.)

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
