Editor's review

Aqua e Wino could well steal the show amongst Krakow's Italian restaurants. Around since the summer of 2005, this stylish restaurant is in fact run by Italians, a rare but crucial factor when it comes to delivering the goods. The owners Roberto and Francesco have created an elegant, contemporary vibe, at the same time taking care to bring out the charm of this classic medieval cellar. The menu is wide-ranging, and chef Francesco promises to take you on a memorable adventure through the delights of Italian cuisine. The wines have been carefully selected from the vineyards of the motherland, and Roberto has one more trick up his sleeve - the wine of eternal life - make sure you give it a try in their smooth lounge bar!

Abbiamo cenato in quattro in questo piacevolissimo ristorante. Ottima cucina, vera italiana: moscardini e capesante come antipasto, poi spaghetti alle vongole e fettuccine con gamberoni. Per finire il gelato al forno della casa. Vino prosecco della casa. Tutto era davvero squisito e ben presentato, accompagnato da un ottimo servizio. Prezzi nella media di Cracovia, quindi assolutamente onesti. Consigliatissimo!!!

Solitamente non scriviamo recensioni su ristoranti ma Aqua e vino ci ha veramente impressionati. Il locale e' curato e pulito, le cameriere disponibile e molto carine, la cucina e' un piccolo paradiso nel cuore della citta'. Abbiamo preso un piccolo antipastino consigliatoci dalla cameriera ma la cosa che ci ha impressionato sono stati gli spaghetti alle vongole... MIGLIORI DI QUELLI CHE ABBIAMO MANGIATO IN ITALIA E NON STIAMO SCHERZANDO!!!! I prezzi sono modici e udite udite, il caffe' espresso e' buono buono.... CONSIGLIATISSIMO!!!!!

A pochi metri dalla piazza del mercato si trova questo bellissimo ristorante. Gestito da due simpatici veneziani, offre davvero un'ottima cucina italiana con una buona carta dei vini (hanno addirittura il Tignanello!), il tutto accompagnato da un servizio gentile e professionale. Moscardini e spaghetti alle vongole possono competere con i migliori ristoranti di pesce in Italia! Ne vale la pena...

Aqua i Vino has been running its business on a consistent level for the last couple of years. One of the limited selection of restaurants in Krakow who maintain their original high standards. The staff can and will, upon request, provide you with some excellent recommendations and the food remains just a tasty and full of quality as it was when I came there the first time 5 years ago! Most def a place to go too!

Just back from bringing a group to Krakow. 30 of us ate in Aqua e Vino and had a fantastic expereince. The staff were exceptional; friendly and efficient. The food was fantastic. It cost about 25 Euro per person for a 4 course meal. (Drinks not incl in that price but plenty consumed) I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

A tutti gli italiani di passaggio a Cracovia: se potete, non mancate di visitare questa perla d'Italia all'estero. Un ristorante che vi fara' davvero sentire "come a casa", forse meglio: piatti eseguiti con cura e serieta', servizio impeccabile, prezzi polacchi e finalmente QUI SI PARLA ITALIANO, in tutti i sensi! Grazie a Francesco e Roberto per averci fatto trascorrere una serata divertente all'insegna della simpatia e della buona cucina. Alla prossima...

Aqua and Vino was the other restaurant recommended by our hotel. It is a small, tastefully decorated and the food is very good. We especially liked the pasta with shrimp and wild mushrooms. Also the special octopus was perfect. Our waitress spoke English and the service was excellent.

Just finished dinner at Aqua and Vino and feel obliged to compliment the staff and kitchen. Kudos! This was one of the best Italian meals that I have ever eaten. I began with a glass of their house Prosecco and Vitello Tonnato - the Prosecco was bright and fruity; the veal was tender with a perfect sauce. I followed with the fresh pappardelle pasta with prawns and wild mushrooms. This pasta dish is a tour de force - amazing! I will be back if only for this wonderful creation. For a main dish I ordered the lamb chops coated with pistachio nuts. The combination of lamb with nuts was outstanding. My friends and I ordered a bottle of recommended by the manager - 2007 Azienda Patrizi. It was delicious and the perfect accompaniment to our meal. For dessert, my friends had the "baked" ice cream - I could not eat any more. The creamy ice cream was studded with pralines and topped with a thin layer of crispy hot burnt caramel -- like creme brulee but better. The meal was Incredible and we already have reservation for tomorrow evening.

My first night in aqua e vino was sensational! Everything a world class restaurant should be. The food and service was top class and the staff friendly, polite and helpful. However I returned a second night and it was like walking into a completely different restaurant. There were different staff on duty who clearly didn't care about their customers. They never informed me about specials or gave me any information about the menu. Service was slow and I had to request the bill 3 times. Food was poor and the portions were very small comparing to the first night. I left there very dissapointed and will not be returning. I would be embarressed if I recommended this restaurant to friends and they recieved this kind of service. Consistency is crucial when it comes to the food service industry and it would have helped a little bit if the staff even seemed the slightest bit interested.

Bylem w ten czwartek w Aqua i muszę przyznać ze zakochałem się we włoskim jedzeniu a tym bardziej w owocach morza. Zamówiłem spaghetti vongole i był to strzał w dziesiątkę, najlepszy makaron jaki do tej pory miałem okazje zjeść, a na przystawkę zamówiłem moscardini - niebo w gębie. Bardzo przytulne miejsce z miłą i zawsze uśmiechnięta obsługą. Byłem tam pierwszy raz ale na pewno nie ostatni.

I dropped in here last night at the suggestion of the staff at my hotel. The food was excellent, the prices were very reasonable, and the wait-staff was very friendly! It was everything I needed after a long miserable day of travel, and it was some of the best Italian food I've had anywhere, including Italy. Ignore the few negative reviews and check this place out. You will not be disappointed.

We spent 5 nights in Krakow with our friends from Malaga who are living in the area and we dined in Aqua e Vino on their recommendation. The first time was last week and the food, wine and service was fantastic. It was so good we also spent our last evening back in the restaurant. We have some good Italian Restaurants in Malaga but Aqua e Vino by far outshines them. Special mention to Roberto who is a superb host. We will definitely be back in the Summer.
