We have been dining at Acqua Pazza for years, really enjoying the food, great location at the River in Rancho Mirage, friendly staff and ambiance. And we have enjoyed either ordering off the menu, or the special three course menu (which has huge value) – they incidentally have a very large vegetarian and gluten free menu. Whether it is the steak or seafood, we’ve not gone wrong at Acqua Pazza, but last night, I strayed to something I’ve not yet tried, the Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash.
Although it is on the appetizer menu, I am not sure that I would have enjoyed eating a full course after this appetizer as it is not only a very generous portion, but very filling. The squash is nicely roasted and filled with filled with quinoa,, roasted peppers,corn, figs, almonds and has an orange fig sauce on the side.
Really tasty, but more of a main course.
