Never disappoints. Staff are lovely, really friendly. Food is beautiful, something for everyone. Wide variety and all of a high quality. I'm not really a dessert person, but this place changes my mind! Choux buns are delicious! One of the best places go visit in Sunderland.

My wife and I have enjoyed the amazing food at D'Acqua on several occasions but this was our first visit for Sunday lunch. Once again the food and service was brilliant. The Crab Mayo and Soup starters were both delicious as was our Roast Brisket of Beef main course. The beef was cooked to perfection, the Yorkshire Puddings were huge... More
