Acqua Santa

0 Love It
A lovely patio, partly covered by grapevines that grow more lush as summer progresses, isn’t Acqua Santa’s only attraction. The friendly staff and hearty fare make for an enjoyable meal at any time of year. Start with the spiedino, a decadent slab of mozzarella that’s lightly battered and fried, then topped with a lemony caper-studded sauce. It’s the perfect size for sharing. Beet gnocchi, tossed with shrimp and asparagus, provide a rich yet surprisingly light main course. Let others line up all summer long; you can slip into this gem off-season and enjoy a wintertime treasure.

Acqua Santa is somehow an under-the-radar Italian place in Williamsburg, even though it’s right in the center of the main drag, off the Bedford L. I went with my parents, and I couldn't believe it was so empty on a Saturday night! Acqua Santa has a big back room that opens to the sidewalk in warm weather. We ordered a couple bottles of red wine and I ordered homemade beet gnocchi, which was perfectly chewy, and I had enough for leftovers. We also ordered a caprese salad to start. The entrees are decently priced, and I would definitely return when I'm craving Italian.


I used to live on the top floor many years ago when it was Sam's Hero Sandwich's, facing street front!


Everything was awesome, we predicted spedino of mozzarella, unique gnocchi and chicken wings, the food was very fresh and the lawn is AMAZING, very awesome employees, useful and always satisfied, broad variety of wines, Definitely i will come back.Absolutely loved this place! Romantic decor, delicious/fresh food and curtious staff. Definitely coming back here soon!


Good food great garden very sluggish service. Used to be my favorite brunch spot with an unbeatable pre-fix deal which has been completely removed simultaneously with an overall price increase which now makes it just another over priced venue. It's too long Acqua Santa.
