Acquerello, named for its original watercolors, envelops guests in a warm and gracious atmosphere the moment they arrive. A recent renovation of the 22-year old restaurant, led by designer John Wheatman, highlights the former chapel, graced with arches and a
rustic wood-beamed vaulted ceiling, with warm Mediterranean colors of gold and terracotta.
The 50 seat dining room is softly illuminated with light from polished brass lamps which dances off an extensive collection of crystal decanters and a large floral bouquet greeting guests as they enter.
Co-owners Giancarlo Paterlini and Suzette Gresham-Tognetti work together to provide an unparalleled Italian dining experience. Acquerello has received countless awards, including a Michelin star in the first-ever 2007 Bay Area guide.
