Directions to Aqua e Vino
There's no shortage of Italian restaurants in Krakow; indeed, Italian cuisine is probably second only to Polish in terms of popularity. However, Aqua e Vino leads the pack in many ways, not least by being owned and run by Italians. Of course that in itself is no automatic guarantee of quality, but since its opening in 2005 Aqua e Vino has consistently garnered praise for its top quality food and its subtly sophisticated modern décor.
Located just a few metres off the Main Square in a cellar on Wislna Street, the understated entrance reveals little of the delights within. Once inside, however, it's as if you've been transported to downtown Milan - large black and white movie stills on the walls reinforcing the sense of Fellini's 'La Dolce Vita'.
Before dining, you can enjoy one of any number of expertly prepared classic cocktails in the lounge bar, but you'll want to waste no time getting stuck into a menu that is clearly a sizable step up from the generic Italian fare so often on offer elsewhere. From Thursday to Sunday a wide range of fresh fish and seafood is available and on weekdays there is a fixed price lunch menu until 4.30pm. The chef's daily recommendations are well worth paying attention to and the wine list is predominantly Italian and carefully compiled.
One further point needs to be emphasised: like all good Italian restaurants, it's not just the food and drink that are top quality; the warm welcome and hospitality from Aqua e Vino's owners and staff will ensure that your visit is memorable. This is one restaurant in Krakow you'll look for any excuse to revisit time and again.
