Enjoyed a great dinner at Aqua Vino. We had Chilean Sea Bass and Haddock Florentine. The service was fantastic. Michael the server was attentive, made great recommendations, and a terrific server. The restaurant is small, quaint situated on the canal - we definitely would return.

Casual Dress (Jacket/NoTie) is more than enough. Many events there are even more casual. Enjoy this great place!
