    Loved our meal (our two apps were very good, boarding on excellent and the entrees were good). The service was poor to be fair: slow and incorrect orders were originally brought by our server (she was new and somewhat out of her comfort zone). Senior staff at the restaurant corrected the issue and then check on us numerous times during our meal (nice recovery from my perspective). The location was idea as the restaurant is within walking distance to both Budweiser Stage and Queen Elisabeth Theatre (we were going to Budweiser Stage, long walk after dinner to get to the show). My wife and I are willing to give this restaurant a second chance, the redeeming feature was the quality of food and senior staffs reaction to our issues.

    We really enjoyed our dinner there before the Robert Plant and Sheryl Crow Concert. We will return next summer concert or event. Great relaxing and scenic spot with very authentic Italian food. Not a very wide choice with the menu but what they do offer, they do very well! :-)

    The restaurant was practically empty on a Thursday evening in June. Sitting by the window, we had a lovely view of the lake, the passing sailboats and the people biking along the Martin Goodman Trail ar strolling through the CNE grounds. The service was friendly, but rather than menus, we were given single sheets with the dishes listed on them. However, the listings were different on the two sheets. And when we asked for a wine list, we were told there was none, only a house red or white. Our waitress seemed surprised when we asked for a full bottle. We shared a calamari appetizer and a salad and both had the tenderloin for our main course. All the food was well prepared and presented and delicious. The sorbet and ice cream desserts were also very good. We weren't offered coffee with our dessert, perhaps because by 8:30 we were the last ones in the restaurant and they locked the door behind us as we left.

    We had the best birthday celebration ever. Chef Amelia and her Team made this a spectacular celebration for us. Acqua Dolce is a hidden gem. The food is incredible. The service level is fantastic. Couldn’t be happier!

    Thanks for the great night out! We had good meal and enjoyed an amazing lake view. The location could not be better. My image of Exhibition Place is a string of cheap and not always clean, overcrowded fast food places. What a nice surprise! This one was tastefully decorated inside and outside. The service was friendly. Timing was good too - we were not rushed but did not wait for our meals too long. My only suggestion is to add more wine selection as only two wines were available - red and white and they were overpriced ($45 for bottle of very basic house wine). I would also suggest nice folders for the menu.

    I didn't realize that the restaurant caters mainly to events and weddings so was surprised when my daughter and I arrived to am empty restaurant. However, we were welcomed graciously and the service was excellent. I had made a reservation and had previously purchased a Groupon voucher. The menu was very limited but everything was excellent.

    What a pleasant surprise. We were a bit concerned when we learned they only had the house red and white wine, but it was very tasty. I enjoyed the sea bass that melted in my mouth while my husband chose a pasta dish. At no time did we feel rushed. Combine this with excellent service and a delicious tiramisu and we would call this success. Such a hidden gem.

    Food is good, service very slow, about 10 minutes to get water, we had to remind the waitress to bring the wine list, she never came back to ask which wine we wanted, we had to flag the hostess to ask for the wine. food took over 1 hour. For desert we asked if the Strawberry Gelato had dairy and she said no 2 times, after we finished dessert the chef came to ask about the food and we asked what was in the gelato and she said condensed milk.

    Not good: restaurant opened a half and hour late; patio was not set up(despite being end of July); waitress offered us water, then charged $7.99 for it on the bill; we checked out the menu online to see if we were interested, but when we got there, were offered a 'reduced' menu, which did not have anything we were hoping for. We had a glass of wine each ( house wine is good) and shared the calamari appetiser (which was good) and left.

    The restaurant is in a beautiful setting. We arrived at 6pm, sat on the patio and were the only guests in the restaurant until 7pm. The service was very friendly, attentive and sweet, but not terribly knowledgeable or professional. The paper menu was soiled, and various beverage selections were crossed out sloppily with a pen. The menu is very limited, and the food mediocre. (The presentation, however, was lovely.). Even with the GroupOn I found the food very pricey for the quality. We were very grateful there was no loud music playing in the background! It was an experience, but we will not return.

    The beet salad was bland. The seasonal vegies where cold and tasted awful. The potatoes where lukewarm and tasteless. We where told it was Potatoe salad. Could have fooled me. They where just warm boiled potatoes, no seasoning or condiments on them. The only thing edible was the tenderloin.

    I never like to write a bad review as I know they are businesses trying to survive but they need to figure out their service if they are going to survive. We were sitting 15 before even getting a menu, 1/3 before a drink and 1 1/2 hours+ before our meal. With kids it was painful. Food ok but not worth the wait.

    Very disappointed when our ordered got mixed up. Two of the same entree was delivered in error and my girlfriend's was completely overlooked. By the time her meal came, simple one btw Caesar salad and veal, we had all finished our meals. The waitress said sorry and blamed the kitchen, the owner said sorry and blamed the waitress , the bar manager came over and said sorry and walked away. Everyone blaming and justifying the mix up but absolutely no offer of compensation .... not anything. Then they managed to add $75 to our bill for drinks and food we didn't order/have. Super nice fun spunky waitress but sadly the overall service was terrible. Oh and it was mentioned when we got there that there were no hand towels in the washroom ..., 2 hours later still none. Mistakes will be made that's a guarantee in life but it's how you make it right that matters! Acqua Dolce you failed !

    Absolutely awful experience. Terrible experience and no communication as they tried to. We sat down to no service, had to get our own water. After 45 minutes they took our order after ignoring us, which was common across the restaurant floor and sereral people waiting to be acknowledged or take a drink order. We ending up leaving before even getting out food due to the delay and bad attitude of the staff. If busy, that's fine, at least communicate with your patrons.

    We were looking for a place to have dinner before the John Legend concert close to the Budweiser Ampitheatre. We thought we arrived with plenty of time for a nice romantic dinner before the show - however we waited 20 minutes after we were seated for someone to get us a drink order. They didn't apologize they just laughed it off saying we looked like we were enjoying ourselves. That should have been our first clue. We asked to order right away some calamari to start, and then a pizza and a pasta dish - nothing very complicated. In fairness the calamari was great and came with the drinks in a timely fashion. However, we had to ask for water twice, while we waited well over an hour for our meals. Having to ask twice when our meals were coming and missing the opening act because of it was frustrating enough. Having the waitress tell us she didn't like to be yelled at and that we needed to be more sympathetic because they were having trouble in the kitchen was insulting. Ending up with a pizza with a totally burnt crust and a pasta that was tough on the edges because it had obviously been sitting on a heat rack for about half an hour was the last straw. It is such a tragedy when a restaurant with such a fabulous location and so much potential is mismanaged to this degree. Do not walk away from this restaurant, run!

    It's very beautiful and unique place. The location is great and view is gorgeous. However, the service is terrible. The menu is just dirty pease of paper. Our server didn't know a single thing about the menu and had to go to the owner every single time we had a question. It was only another couple who had meals and still we had to wait for not less than 30 mins for our 3 dinner plates to arrive. The food was just ok nothing special. They charged us $18 for my 2 year old daughter's simple pasta with tomato sauce. How ridiculous is that. I will never ever come back again.
