Update February 2023: Aqua e Vino is now permanently closed.
Aqua e Vino serves no-nonsense pasta dishes for (usually) a no-nonsense price in an intimate, basement setting.
Aqua e Vino is an intimate venue with exposed stonework and wall-sized portraits from Italian film. The menu is built around Mediterranean seafood dishes and pasta, which is actually very good. The staff can be a little impersonal and some customers report misunderstandings that ended up costing more than expected, but all in all, it’s possible to feel as if a meal here was money well spent, especially if you’re in the mood for Italian.
