Aqua Marina is a gem in Washington Heights…
a little bit of authentic Italy, uptown.
Soon to celebrate its 15th remarkable year, the restaurant recently expanded and underwent a complete renovation. The mainstay of the restaurant — the delicious Italian cuisine — is overseen by owner Omara Reyes, who turned her passion for food into a hit cooking show on a local NYC cable station.
From Angel Hair Pomodoro and Penne Melanzana to Veal Saltimbocca and Chicken Montebianco, Aqua Marina runs the gamut of enticing regional Italian food served in a relaxing ambiance by an attentive staff. Dominican-born Reyes spices up the menu by offering her loyal customers Spanish dishes as well, including the ever-popular Churrasco. The variety of seafood offerings is a welcome change to the usual fare at most Italian restaurants.
Aqua Marina boasts daily lunch specials as well as an Early Bird reduced priced menu.
Aqua Marina has culled a large, loyal clientele over the years for great food served at popular prices.
