Located in one of the oldest New York City spots, on the corner of Peck Slip and Water Street, Acqua at Peck Slip is an authentic Italian restaurant. It is a very cozy place with traditional Italian cuisine contained a large diversity of dishes based on the best recipes taken from all parts of Italy from North to South.
The restaurant is close to the Brooklyn Bridge, in Historic District named South Street Seaport, where the first Dutch pilgrims arrived in the beginning of the 17th century. This neighborhood still keeps the unique atmosphere of those ages. Cobblestone streets, old fashion sailing ships which moored right to the 17 Pier, make you feel like you are in 19th century Italy.
This area contains a high concentration of old buildings, and Acqua is located in one of the oldest landmark buildings in the neighborhood.
A bright, open, warm atmosphere takes you in Rome or Florence. With big windows, very old wood floors, simply furnished with wood vintage tables and chairs, Acqua is a great place for enjoying food and wine.
The most attractive thing about Acqua is the excellent food. Every dish here is delicious and traditional. The Executive Chef Ivan Beacco uses only good quality organic ingredients that are directly imported from Italy. Olive oil, Parmigiano cheese, Prosciutto Di Parma cured ham and other ingredients were born in Italy.
One of the main features that distinguish Acqua from the other many Italian restaurants in New York is the fresh, daily-made mozzarella cheese, fettuccine pasta, desserts and fresh baked bread.
