Acqua Al 2
Acqua Al 2 carries the legacy established across the Atlantic at its Florence flagship restaurant, importing the exact menu that has been delighting Italian patrons and travelers since 1978. Owner and executive chef Martin Gonzalez spent many years in the kitchen at the Florence location, mastering the menu firsthand to ensure the authenticity of his San Diego satellite. His dedication shines through in more than a dozen pastas as well as hand-cut steak, veal, and chicken entrees.
Imported mascarpone cheese flavors bowtie pasta sautéed with porcini mushrooms, and gnocchi bathes in a house tomato sauce with Italian red cabbage and parmesan. Cooks hand-carve filet mignon served in a blueberry sauce, and sauté chicken breast in a port-and-light-cream sauce. Dozens of Italian and Californian wines complement the cuisine, including a house-label Sangiovese, envied by the other wines because it gets to work from home.
