Enjoy the finest contemporary and traditional Italian cuisine in a stylish yet comfortable setting, perched on the edge of the pretty River Mimram - Aqua brings Italian eating into the 21st Century. Situated in the picturesque village of Welwyn, diners can enjoy an attractive vista while delighting in a menu that fuses classic Italian dishes with modern flair, utilising the best produce that Italy has to offer.

On entering Aqua you'll be instantly struck by the sense of light and space. Sleek wooden surfaces and cool leather seats are complemented by spicy Mediterranean reds and breezy blues. French windows open right onto the water, creating a freshness on warm summer days.

The food, like the setting, is all about style created through simplicity. Quality ingredients are transformed into a myriad of mouth-watering Mediterranean meals, with especially high quality for such an extensive menu. To start, choose from an array of hot, cold and seafood antipasti ranging from the traditional - calamari, bruschetta, Caprese salad - to the more contemporary sapore d'Aqua, which sees a potato rosti topped with sirloin strips marinated in fennel seeds and balsamic syrup, to tantalise diners.

Perfectly-executed pastas and pizzas draw in fans of the traditional Italian eating experience, especially when the likes of linguine di granchio (pasta with crab) and pizza la Toscana (spinach, Parmesan, olives and egg) are on the menu; however the further array of mains sees stunning meat and fish dishes on offer, which cannot be ignored. Pollo impanato sees tender chicken coated in a blend of Parmesan breadcrumbs, lemon and parsley, served with mushroom risotto. Fillet steak is given the same precise treatment, when it's topped with wild mushrooms and a simple mustard sauce; whereas delicate cod is baked with a pesto, spinach and rocket crust.

Pop in during the day and sample the new lunchtime menu, where you can eat any pasta, pizza or salad, or choose a panino - an Italian-style burger filled with chargrilled steak or chicken breast and topped with the likes of Dolcelatte, cherry plum tomato and balsamic drizzle for the excellent price of £8.50, which includes coffee and a glass of wine. For the ultimate experience of eating the Italian way, head to Aqua and enjoy the best that the Mediterranean has to offer.
