Dear customers.First i thought this review was a fake.Is too general,is like an abridgment of the previous bad review i had,it doesn t say anything about what you eat and how much you paid.
Then i understood who you are and when you came at my place.
It was the first crowdy night in this difficoult season,i hadn t yet all of my personel,so i ve to admit that the service wasn t good as it is usual,and i m really sorry for this.I know that a good service many time is more important then a good kitchen,but we are living hard times and i m doing everything i can to keep my business alive.
You ve eaten fresh fish with a good bottle of wine.For 6 persons you paid 123 euros.24 is the price for the bottle.so you paid 16 euro each for the food.Portion of pasta is 150 grams,fish without bones is 230 grams.portions are huge,as photos of othes customers can confirm.prices are ridicoulous for the quality and the quantity.
My chef worked for 15 years in reasturants with one or two michelein stars,so i m sure of the good job he did.
I m not asking to be comprehensive,it s clear that you re not,
Instead i thank you beacause probably customers like you would think twice before coming at my place.
Best regards,Francesco.

“Nice restaurant, but expensive choice and poor pasta”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

What would you expect from an italian restaurant after 10 days of greek food?? Excellent pasta, don't you?
Well then Acquasanta may be a disapointing choice.
We went there for diner, had 7 pasta dishes and 3 starters. No need to describe them: half of them were average and the other were poor: too dry, with simple but not nicely cooked sauces...
The only thing at expectations: the suggested bottle of italian red wine which was outstanding.
The bill was the most expensive we paid in Greece: 117€. Would be fairly valued only if food would have been as good as the atmosphere and the staff suggested...

“Italian quality in the paradisiac Alonissos”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

We spent 2 evening of our 3 days in Alonissos dining at Acquasanta Restaurant.
After 2 weeks in Greece we were a little bit tired with the Greek cuisine you can find in the touristic restaurants that is very good but - this is my advice - a little bit repetitive.
When we discovered Acquasanta we finally could taste our Italian flavours with Greek ingredients. We were travelling as a group of 6 italians (3 couples) and we all appreciated a lot Acquasanta restaurant and its italian specialities.
The owner is an Italian boy very professional in describing the dishes, very kind and with a passion for his job. He informed us that all dishes were cooked with Greek ingredients because he tried to mix the elements of which Greece is rich with Italian cooking style-culture.
The idea is wonderful and the result is very good.
You can spend a pleasant evening in Acquasant eating good italian foods (pasta, fish, meat, everything cooked in a particular way and also with daily adds to the menu depending on the fresh "pescado" of the day) and drinking good wine (wine is not the best thing you can find in Greek restaurant, here you have a selection of good Italian and Greek wines).
Finally, the view from the terrace is wonderful. Athmosphere is romantic and elegant.
Prices are just a little bit higher than Greek standards (30-35 euros at person for a complete meal with starters, pasta or fish/meat and dessert, wine included) but correct for the quality.
Highly recommended.
