  • Daily, 5:30 p.m.-midnight; late-night menu until "1:30 a.m. or empty"
All'Acqua (which means "Atwater" in Italian) is owned by Claudio Blotta and Adria Tennor Blotta, who also own Barbrix just over the river in Silver Lake, and Cooks County in Beverly Grove. Mr. Blotta, who is Argentine by birth, is one of the many restaurant professionals in Los Angeles to have come through the talent factory of Campanile in the late 1980s and early '90s. He was the maitre d' and general manager during the restaurant's heyday. The Blottas have completely overhauled the building, and the interior now is cavernous but sleek, with a large, open kitchen fronted by a wood-burning oven (check) and chef's counter (of course). There's a bar with plenty of amaros (wouldn't you know), and a glassed-in wall of bottles that hints at the same devotion to wine that makes Barbrix such a fun place to drink. The chef here is Don Dickman, who also runs the kitchen at Barbrix. --Besha Rodell Read our full review of All'Acqua.
