Ate there last night. Perfect meal and wonderful service. Would recommend this fish restaurant to anybody. The food was beautifully presented with modern cooking and presentation and delicious flavours.

I would definitely recommend this place if you're in the mood to step away from the tourist areas and enjoy a quiet local meal. I loved my fettuccine with lobster and salad. Our waitress was very attentive and the chef was willing to make me a salad that wasn't even on the menu. Overall great place!!!! :)

While this restaurant might please higher end foodies (though I am not really sure about that), we found the restaurant to be uncomfortable and overpriced. The pasta selections were quite limited, and... More

Asked the server, to recommend an entree, she strongly suggested tuna as being very fresh. When brought out, the tuna looked old and tasted fishy. When the 4 of us told the server, she argued, it was very fresh and removed the 4 plates of essentially untouched fish. The bill included the 4 tuna dishes. We were in Florence for... More

Dear customer,honestly we didn't understand your complain about your dinner here in our restaurant and the rewiew wrote below don't describe completely the truth!The tuna was reccomended because it was a precious and expensive fish caught in Tuscany sea,certified and healthy,dark in colour because rich of blood,amazing taste and good smell.I apologize but we don't sell Pacific or Atlantic Tuna...

This restaurant was lovely, the service was outstanding and the food was just divine. Our waiter was genuinely nice and accommodating, can't fault him at all. The menu had lots of choice, everything was amazing quality and cooked beautifully. It was very quiet at the time of our reservation (7.30pm) and we got our food very quickly. It did get... More

Fresh, I mean really fresh, fish of your choice served efficiently with an extensive wine list. Visit here if you are after fine dining in Florence.

I have been acquapazza twice and I honestly it was an incredibile experience. The restaurant is small, very silent. Service is extremely nice, full of suggestions and tips, Wines just great and then the fish food. I think Acquapazza is over my the top list! Every single dish is a trip, something you can be happy with. I love this... More

By sharinWe dined at Acquapazza on the recommendation of the staff at Hotel Rapallo. It was just a short walk from the hotel, which was a plus. This is an excellent restaurant and we had a wonderful dining experience. Our bottle of Chardonnay (Collio Veni) was very good. Our meal started with complimentary appetizer of TarTara di Ricoila (tuna) and... More
