According to their website: "Trattoria Acqua's gourmet Italian cooking has established the
La Jolla restaurant as one of San Diego's elite fine dining experiences. Nestled in the
quaint village of La Jolla, with breathtaking views of the La Jolla Coastline, you will

harkening back to the Italian Coastline. The award-winning Italian-Mediterranean fare
offered by Chef Damaso Lee and his staff is second to none among San Diego restaurants.
The delectable menu includes fresh, locally caught seafood, as well as some of the most
mouth-watering Italian regional cooking. Paired with their award-winning wine list, this
