You have decided to take your vacation in beautiful Harbour Island, which is famous for its Caribbean influenced cuisine. However, as soon as you get there you find that you have an immediate craving for Italian food. Fortunately, there is Acquapazza Harbor Island, an Italian eatery located in the Romora Bay Resort and Marina. The name is the Italian word for pouched fish, and the restaurant serves more pouched grouper than anything else. No matter what your dietary preferences, you are sure to find the perfect three or four course meal in the elegant dining room.
Antipasti at Acquapazza Harbor Island
You can’t go wrong with any appetizer, soup or salad at this place, but there are a few stand out dishes. The garlic bread is baked to faultlessness and has the perfect garlic to butter ratio. If you are looking for something to spread on the bread, you won’t want to miss the rich and flavorful eggplant amalfitano, which combines eggplant, peppers, basil and feta. The blue cheese salad pairs the pungent and powerful cheese with mixed greens and a taming lemon vinaigrette.
In addition to the signature poached grouper in herbs and tomato sauce, the restaurant offers several traditional Italian entrees. Acquapazza Harbor Island serves some great pasta dishes like a decadent melanzane parmigiana, which is baked in perfectly spiced breading and covered in mozzarella and a rich and tangy marinara sauce. The Fettucine alla Norcina is a rich and creamy pasta made with mushrooms, parmigiana and a white truffle oil. If you are not looking to pack on the pounds, you may want to try the spaghetti aglio olio, which is a light dish of garlic, olive oil and basil.
The deserts at Acquapazza Bahamas include the usual selections of tiramisu, crème brulee and ice cream. But, if you are in the mood for something a bit more indulgent, try the gianduja cake which is a chocolate and hazelnut cake that comes with vanilla ice cream and strawberry coulis.
Acquapazza Bahamas also has an excellent wine list and a prime selection of Italian coffee drinks.
