The best way to capture a wild, rampaging meal is to hook it with a gigantic pasta lasso. Test your throwin' arm with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine at Acqua at Peck Slip, located in the Seaport Historic District.
A Mediterranean-meets-modern approach, extra-virgin olive oil imported from Liguria, and seasonal produce from organic markets distinguish dishes on Acqua’s menu from those of an ordinary Italian restaurant or covered wagon filled with marinara. Organic flour is used to bake Acqua’s fresh pasta (such as the linguine with clams and white-wine sauce, $19), pizza (such as pizza bianca with imported prosciutto di parma, homemade mozzarella, and baby arugula, $18), and desserts (such as tiramisu, $8). Every morning, between baking hearty loaves of bread and apple tarts ($8), Acqua’s chefs assemble fresh pillows of spinach ravioli (which is served with walnut sauce and radicchio, $18) and strands of fettuccini (served with Sicilian cherry tomatoes and homemade mozzarella, $16). All dishes are made with a philosophy of love, simplicity, and honesty.
Let the breeze fan a romantic flame until it catches the tablecloth on fire on the outdoor patio. Or, post up at the bar amid buzzy conversation with a glass of grapen goodness from an Italian boutique winery ($11–$12). With high ceilings, glitzy accents, bare brick walls, and a bustling atmosphere, Acqua at Peck Slip oozes a smart Mediterranean vibe that makes it an ideal spot for soaking up the residue of a late night out or as a prelude to a hammock nap.

Acqua at Peck Slip
Chefs knead pasta dough and form slick spheres of mozzarella for melting onto pizzas or bowling toward zucchini pins at Acqua at Peck Slip, a Zagat-rated Italian restaurant that was recently featured at the Italian Wine & Food Institute's exclusive Gala Italia event. Executive chef Ivan Beacco fills ravioli with walnuts and radicchio, sears swordfish fillets to pair with fennel salad, and braises short ribs for plating with potatoes and root vegetables. Because it wouldn’t be classic Italian without wine, an onsite sommelier keeps the wine list flush with varietals from the country’s famed vineyards. The bottle collection lines a wall adjacent to tall arched windows that appeared in a restaurant scene from The Adjustment Bureau.
