THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Aquaterra Ristorante Restaurant Review:


THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Chef Anthony Acinapura appeared with Rocco Dispirito on the TV show The Restaurant and is now serving Italian-American favorites at Aquaterra. Marinated beets with goat cheese, calamari fritto with marinara sauce, and a chef’s selections of cured meats establish that the food, like the décor, is rustic and elegant. The creamy risotto Milanese provides the bed for giant shrimps and crunchy asparagus with shellfish broth. The diver scallops are served in an avocado purée and drizzled with prosecco vinaigrette, offering some relief from tradition. Chicken scarpiello with fennel sausage, yellow peppers and a citrus sauce is generous in aroma and portion. The trio of chocolate includes a mousse, a soufflé and crème brûlée. Acinapura stays close to the “water and soil” theme he has chosen for his restaurant---Aquaterra---which offers no surprises, except to deliver food harvested in the morning to the table in the evening.
