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!
Editor & Krakow Local
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!!!
simply the best
Best Italian food in Cracow. Italian owners are always in restaurant, so quality of food and service is very high.
Da raccamondare in Goni senso
Still the best Italian in Krakow!
It was amazing we want in April 2013 for my birthday when we were in krakow anit is possibly the best meal iv ever been for definitely worth a try
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!!!!!
Exceptional (and genuine) Italian food. Thank you!
Best restaurant in Krakow! Simple.
Always excellent meals and service here. Bravo!
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...
My favorite place in Krakow!
Visited Aqua e Vino on two consecutive nights last January, all four of us found excellent food which was beautifully presented,friendly staff and excellent service.It will be hard to find a better Italian restaurant in Cracow.
Perfect setting, outstanding food, fantastic wine selection and the professional staff made our experience one we won't forget. In fact, our first meal was so good, we returned for a second despite only 3 days in Krakow. We'll be back
Always a great place for a memorable meal.
Amazing food! My best Italian meal ever.
DON'T LOSE TO VISIT THIS GEM BEFORE LEAVING KRAKOW! THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN POLAND, BRAVI RAGAZZI!!!
Excellent, as always!
10!!! smaczne jedzenie, przyjemna obsługa, rewelacja !!!
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!
I visited this place with my good friend who lives in Krakow! It is a great Italian restaurant with really good food. It is not a typical old fashioned place and has a nice fresh atmosphere even though it is in a basement. Very nice!
Perfect food and great value
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.
LOVE, LOVE AND LOVE. Oggi e' S.Valentino!!!!!!!!!
SONO STATO IN AQUA E VINO LA PRIMA VOLTA NEL 2006 E PER ME RAPPRESENTAVA L'UNICO VERO RISTORANTE ITALIANO A CRACOVIA. A DISTANZA DI 5 ANNI, NULLA E' CAMBIATO, SE NON LA QUALITA' DEL CIBO, ANCORA PIU' ALTA DI ALLORA. COMPLIMENTI DAVVERO, CONTINUATE CON LA MODESTIA E LA PROFESSIONALITA' DI SEMPRE. GIORGIO.
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...
Thank you Marta ;-)))
no doubts, best restaurant in Krakow. Autentico italiano, reasonably priced, would be successful in Italy too. I recommend the fresh seafood selection on Thursday night.
And, hardly the case in Poland, professional and friendly service.
Thanks Roberto, Francesco and all the staff to make me feel always at home!
Still the best Italian restaurant in Krakow.
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.
They offer a set price lunchtime menu which is of excellent price and quality. Very pleasant cellar surroundings and excellent service. Top Italian food at Polish prices!
DAVVERO IL MIGLIOR RISTORANTE ITALIANO ALL'ESTERO! GRAZIE A FRANCESCO ABBIAMO TRASCORSO UNA BELLISSIMA SERATA, CUCINA DEGNA DI UN GRANDE CHEF E AMBIENTE ELEGANTE MA NON TROPPO FORMALE. PROSECCO A GO GO E GRAPPA SUL TAVOLO...GRAZIE E ALLA PROSSIMA!!!
excellent food, really perfect! service was good. the -2 are because of the housewine that didn´t have a nice taste to it and that the ambient could be better (in order to be spotless).
Smaczne jedzenie w miłej atmosferze. Obsługa sympatyczna. Ceny adekwatne do jakości. Polecam wszystkim, którzy tęsknią za prawdziwie włoskim jedzeniem. Brawo!
Bardzo dobre jedzenie. Spróbowałam świeżych czarnych ravioli z łososiem i ricottą i jestem pod wrażeniem. Miła obsługa i fantastyczna atmosfera tego miejsca.
Dziękuje Marcie za sympatyczny serwis.
Dla mnie najlepsza restauracja Włoska w Krakowie.
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.
Very good choice also for a perfect lunch! Two courses for just 35 złoty with water and coffee included. Probably the best Italian Restaurant in Krakow!
We found Aqua e Vino recommended in a local guidebook and went there for our last evening in Krakow. The restaurant is in a cellar just off the Market Square and was obviously very popular with locals.The food is authentically Italian and is excellent.
Just the best restaurant in town. Baci allo staff
Still a great restaurant to visit. Friendly service and genuine Italian food. It's a bit hidden away down in a cellar, but well worth discovering!
Superb food here...try the draught prosecco...service though not quite so good of late so docked 2 points for that
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.
Thanks Robert for the perfect dinner
un ristorante che e' un vanto per l'italia...
da provare assolutamente... ne vale veramente la pena...
gli spaghetti con le vongole e quelli con i fegatelli sono il top... ottimi anche gli altri piatti e i dolci...
franco e stefano
santa marinella (roma)
Il cuoco e' proprio bravo ;-)))))
A superb restaurant, it has a subdued and very sophisticated ambience, excellent service, delicious food, and best of all, it's price is so much lower than you'd expect. You could give double the amount for a meal in tips and still save money compared to London or Parisian restaurants!
Really good food Roberto, thank you very much
Roberto, thank you very much for the winter wheather, really good. Now is perfect sexallllallyttyyyy restaurant
The best Italian restaurant in town.
Very good food and perfect value for the money. See you soon!
lovely restaurant.lovely food,wine and staff.great value.xxxx's to Francessco
Me and a few friends had a really good evening 2 days ago. Staff helpful, fast and nice ;) Great food. Perfect
Nemmeno in Italia ho mangiato cosi' bene! Pasta e pesce da copogiro. Complimenti pure alle cameriere sexy
no doubt, one of the best Italian restaurant out of Italy.
delicious dishes! great service! amazing location!
This restaurant is really very good and the reviews, except the last one reflect that. Inaccurate or negative reviews can be damaging but in this case, I suggest, should be completely ignored. We have eated at this restaurant many times and have always had excellent food and service and would highly recommend it. I am not connected to this restaurant in any way other than by being a very happy and satisfied customer!
Who writes the reviews for this they are telling lies!
Restaurant ok, but food super
Una simpatica esperienza culinaria
AMAZING RESTAURANT. VERY GOOD
este cel mai bun restaurant in care am mancat,totul este foarte bun,nu mai vorbesc de personal care este amabil.Il mio piato preferito è tagliata di manzo :-). Grazie a tutti per la vostra amabilità. BRAVISSIMI !
Difficile trovare fuori dall'Italia un ristorante cosi' efficente e camerieri preparati. Complimenti. Federica 82
""Great food, great service, great place as always! The owners of this place are always around to make sure you're everything is ok! They've got a new menu too, which is very good! Probably the best Italian Restaurant in Krakow!""

Best Italian restaurant in Krakow ever. Brawisimi
Questo ristorante mi e' stato raccomandato da amici. Devo dire che sono stato colpito dal cibo e dal servizio di giovani cameriere molto carine e disinibite. Raccomando il ristorante a tutti i viaggiatori
Excellent Italian restaurant. Superb food in an unformal atmosphere, so closed to the main square... so far from the caos! Good Italian wine by the glass for 9 zloty. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Uno dei migliori ristoranti italiani all'estero. Bravi.
Very good food, j like also the small restaurant ah ah ah ;)
Best Italian food--from starter to dessert--we have ever found in our travels throughout the US and Europe. The insalada caprese was exquisite. The pasta was perfect. The fish excellent. The tiramisu fantastic. Attractive ambiance. Good service. Our best dining experience in Cracow--by far.
An excellent, well run accomodating restaurant near the Main Square. I booked my table thru the internet before our Krakow vacation. Excellent response, food and impeccable service. They even had a surprise Buon Compleanno cake for my wife. Got her good with that one (a few tears). Very good for value. Try the dorada and lamb dishes. Too die for.
Nice restaurant, food is very good and service ok. Very good night. Take a look!
Great food, great service, great place as always! The owners of this place are always around to make sure you're everything is ok! They've got a new menu too, which is very good! Probably the best Italian Restaurant in Krakow!
Really excellent restaurant. Superb food, superb wine, central location but away from the noise, anyone having difficulty finding the restaurant should possibly not be allowed out on their own. "
Happy New Year to Roberto, Francesco and all the staff! Thanks for a wonderful send-off - we enjoyed your great food, wine and hospitality during our 15 months in Krakow and looking forward to our next trip back.
This is one of the best Italian restaurant we've ever been (Italy included!!). Superb food in a casual location but elegant at the same time, with excellent service and with probably the best wine list in Cracow. We also spent here New Year's Eve and even if the local was completely full we have to say that Francesco and Roberto made us feel as we was in Italy, even better! Many thanks again to all the staff and happy new year! Highly recommended from Italian gourmets...
Vorremmo augurare un Velice Natale agli amici di Aqua e Vino e a tutto il suo meraviglioso staff. Buone feste Amici da Matteo e Fabrizio
Superb Wine, Superb Staff. Perfect Restaurant for a romantic S.Valentine!
Great restaurant. Brilliant food, Brilliant staff. Brilliant experience. Will definitely go back when next in Krakow
NO WAY!!!! THE BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN THIS BEAUTIFUL TOWN! BRAVO!!
Bardzo dobre jedzenie. Nie ma lepszej w³oskiej restauracji w Krakowie. Szkoda, ¿e jest tylko jedna.
Il miglior ristorante italiano di Cracovia. Originale Italiano. Consigliato a tutti i turisti italiani e non solo, per qualita' e sapori veri.
Ragazzi siete bravisssssssssssimi !!!
Roberto mi piaci tanto. A presto... ciao!!!
Every time J come to Krakow for my job, j eat in this place. My favourite place in Town. Best meal, best servise&food in Old-Town!!!!!!!!!!
Superb, as always! try the 'Fiorentina' steak which is unbelievable. Simply, this is my favourite restaurant in Krakow.
is a good restuarant, but twice they have tried to charge extra for wine......
This place has to be one of my favourite restaurants in Krakow. Certainly my favourite Italian restaurant in Krakow! The staff are always friendly, helpful and professional. The food is superb! I highly recommend you get down to Aqua e vino ASAP as these guys know how to run an Italian restaurant!
Starter was ok, but lamb really incredible. Not expensive here, sometime the people waiting a little but waiters are smaling and professional. Good place for KraKow.
8 months on after writing our first review of this wonderful restaurant we find ourselves still living in Krakow and have experienced the deliciously fresh food and wonderful friendly service on a weekly basis during this time. We still haven't found a better place to dine in Krakow so will continue to enjoy the Aqua e Vino team's traditional Italian food and hospitality for the remainder of our stay here. Well done to all!
A MIO GIUDIZIO,QUESTO E' INDUBBIAMENTE IL MIGLIOR RISTORANTE DELLA CITTA'. E SONO SICURA DI QUELLO CHE DICO, POICHE' VIVO A CRACOVIA DA BEN 14 MESI, E DA ROMAGNOLA DOC AMO MANGIARE BENE E FREQUENTARE RISTORANTI. COMPLIMENTI E CONTINUATE CON LA STESSA PASSIONE E AMORE. KISSESSSS
