We have gone to Bella Aquila
We have gone to Bella Aquila several times and have never been disappointed. The service, food and atmosphere are excellent! A great place to go for a special occasion. A little spendy, so save up for it!

In a quite nook by the river.
In a quite nook by the river. Loved the food and the portions. Not too much and not too little. The fried spinach was great and the salmon some of the best.

Lives up to its reputation!
This restaurant lives up to its reputation and has a extensive Italian fine dining menu. We can't wait to return and try something else.

The service was very timely
The service was very timely and not over done. Witin the context of a dinner for middle aged and older diners this was a real gem. Not overly loud or rushed in the presentation of the menus and specials.

Great setting along the river
Solid food choices with an Italian focus but the real draw is the patio dining along the river corridor. Pick a day with great weather and enjoy a lunch or dinner while watching people enjoy the river front pathway system. the park like setting of the patio has views of the river. Very relaxing

Delightful Dining Experience
Bella Aquila is a wonderful dining experience. You can dress up or down, and still enjoy the ambience and excellent service. We are regular customers, who find your service fast and friendly and the food well prepared. Excellent overall experience.

Oasis in a Desert
In an area where fine dining is hard to find, Bella Aquila is a real gem. Menu offers a good range of choices and the chef is competent in all areas. Location near the Boise River is another plus and the outdoor dining, in season, is comfortable. Wait staff is professional and the owners are on premise and attentive without being intrusive.

We ate lunch on the patio. Relaxing and beautiful. Our lunch was just the right size portion of cheese tortellini and salad for $12. Our waitperson was friendly and prompt. We will return!

Special Occasion Must
Special Occasion location is just that. Not expensive, great outdoor dining and super service toped with a first class menu.

So this is the place we go for special occasions. I just realized we should go on more occasions. Great restaurant nestled in Eagle Idaho by the Boise River. Good food good prices come early to walk down the river pathway.

Sat outside close to the water
Sat outside close to the water fall and enjoyed a wonderful dinner. I had the seafood salad which was very enjoyable and a sweet white wine(thak you waitress for recommending) that made me appreciate even more the warm weather and being able to relax outside with the birds chirping and the sun shining! Thanks again BA never a disappointment.
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Experience - Again!
Bella Aquila never disappoints. I had the Filet Mignon and it was excellent. Always a relaxing dining experience with a beautiful view and wonderful service. I look forward to going here every time I'm in Boise. Consistently a great time!

Birthday Lunch For My Wife
I requested an outdoor table next to the waterfall, when I made my reservation online with Open Table, and the friendly hostess seated us exactly where I requested without me saying a word. I also requested a surprise birthday cake online and the server brought it at the end of our meal, which was a big hit with my wife. We were very impressed that our two requests were honored without having to say anything, as the hostess and server were very professional and their attention to detail was great.

Very Good Italian
We had a very good meal at the restaurant. The restaurant has outdoor seating for those warm summer evenings with a nice view of the Boise river. The food was very good and the help was excellent. Our order got behind a large group so it took longer to get our meal but that made it seem more authentic, in Italy you have the table for the entire evening. I would recommend this restaurant. The Open Table reservation system worked great. The table was ready when we arrived.

Service and food were very good. Dined on the patio and was outstanding.

Great atmosphere! I ordered Salmon Ravioli, which was ok, I wont order it again. My husband got the Black and Bleu steak which was a $27 plate, but said it was the best steak he'd ever had. After our appetizer and while waiting on our food a man came by and said "Oh....can I get you some bread??" Like we should have already had it. A girl walked around and lit candles at each table, and managed to miss us. We also ordered some drinks and dessert (My hubby said the bread pudding was amazing). The drinks were a sparkling champagne with strawberry puree in it. It was a 3/4 of the way filled wine flute for $7 and we were a little disappointed at the price for size. We walked out of there $100 lighter. Would go again but order differently.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
When I'm in town, there are many places I tend to default to, but I really enjoy Italian food and wanted to try something new. You won't be disappointed. Plenty of options for appetizer and meal. Pretty grounds, had it not been raining I would have definitely sat outside.

We had a wonderful experience
We had a wonderful experience at your restaurant and are looking forward to our next visit.

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend. I was in need of an elegant night out and I couldn't have hoped for more. The inside was quiet, giving an intimate feel, and allowing me to focus on my date. The wait staff was all very polite and made sure we had everything we needed/wanted. The food was the best part. Not only did it taste delicious, it tasted fresh and kept me satisfied. And they have the best canollis I have had yet.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I were visiting friends in Boise and took them out for a nice dinner the evening before we left. We wanted an Italian restaurant and our first choice was closed on Mondays so we selected Bella Aquila. Our initial selection was based on our experience at the Boise Farmer's Market but after dining at Bella Aquila, we now have a favorite Italian restaurant in Boise. I think it was serendipitous that we were directed here because everything: meal, service, ambiance, etc. was first rate. Thank you Bella Aquila for a truly enjoyable experience.

The wait staff was very attentive
The wait staff was very attentive and also very helpful. I have various food allergies, and they were able to make accommodations for me. We sat inside where it was quieter than outside. There was noise from a water feature and live music, so it was nice to have both options.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I always love going to Bella Aquila. A very relaxing dining experience with great food. I only wish I weren't on a diet so I could have had the Suppli - that is just to die for! And the chicken parm with linguini with brown butter sage sauce - yum!
7/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
Just a perfect evening for our 8th Anniversary dinner. The service staff was wonderful and the ambiance was gorgeous.

Highly recommend as great choices for brunch. The outside setting is wonderful and enjoy listening to the water falls. Service was outstanding.

We shall return
This was not our first experience. The food was once again very, very good.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bella Aquila has become my go to place whenever we have something to celebrate. The setting and the always great food make the evening even more special. I've recommended to all my family and friends.

Great Food, Beautiful Setting
My wife and I chose Bella Aquila as the spot to celebrate our 41st anniversary and the food did not disappoint. The view out onto the greenbelt from the patio was excellent with a waterfall as part of the landscaping just next to us. We will go again.

The fried baby spinach was
The fried baby spinach was the most amazing new food experience I have had in quite awhile. It melts in your mouth! I anticipated having a nibble or two (it is, after all, SPINACH), but I ended up wishing I could order another serving. I topped mine with parmesan cheese presented by the waitress, and that was a perfect fit. The entire meal was delicious and the patio setting is superb.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group of five women hadn't seen each other for quite some time, we need more time to catch up at lunch.... It was getting hot on the patio, so we moved to the quiet bar to visit after our meal. The staff was so accommodating, our hour lunch became four! Thanks.
Oh, and the food was terrific.

We really liked everything
We really liked everything about Bella Aquilla!!!! We will return to this lovely restaurant!!

Outstanding dining experience.
On our first trip to the Boise area a woman on the plane highly recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The service was impeccable and the food was amazingly tasty and beautifully presented. There is a great view and outside dining available. They had live music playing which just added to this wonderful ambience of this enchanting dining experience.

I had dinner at Bella Aquila in August and was astounded at the eating pleasure I experienced with their fried baby spinach. It is not on the luncheon menu, but when my friends and I asked if we possibly could have it with our luncheon entrée, the waitress responded that they would be glad to accommodate us. It was as wonderful at mid-day as it was for dinner. We greatly appreciated their flexibility and of course thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

Opportunity for Unique Quality
We've enjoyed Bella Aquila on various occasions, all of which have provided us with exactly the experience we wanted. The chef's creations can meet exacting standards whether dealing with a known dish or something new and different. The creative and unique wine/beer tasting events are just one more little star to place on the list of an all-star restaurant.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best place to sit dine outdoors in Eagle. Food and service are always excellent and a great wine list.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful dinner, every dish was exceptional. Would definitely suggest anyone to give it a try. The dishes with the heat scales I would say make sure you love spicy food because they have an excellent kick!
