    We have been here a few time over the years, but after this experience I don't think we will be back. Our service was the worst I have experienced in quite awhile. My wife ordered a beer, and after 10 min had to flag down another server to get it, and it came out very warm. Same thing happened with water refills. They did end up comping 50% of our entrees, but I am not sure what happened all our other trips were great.

    Took nearly two hours to complete dinner. We were there 25 minutes before asked if we wanted appetizers. Our sever maybe had one other table. The restaurant was dead, she was just no where to be found. Received food after an hour then the server forgot to bring silverware. Our dinner was cold before we saw our server again and had to Get up to go ask her for silverware. I love the authentic food but can’t dedicate 2 hours for dinner and the horrible service.

    My husband and I chose to dine at Bella Aguila in celebration of our 32nd Wedding Anniversary. We were seated by a large picture window overlooking the outside patio with beautiful trees along side the river which was lovely. I had the Angel Hair Pasta with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce with Grilled Prawns. My husband had Blackened Salmon and he really enjoyed it. They have a nice selection of wine which complemented our entrees perfectly. We shared Tiramisu for dessert. It was a beautiful setting and our food and service was wonderful! We would highly recommend Bella Aguila and I can't wait to go back!

    We quite enjoy BA and have been several times. It’s good, even really good with many things. It’s a solid 4. Little slow last night but it’s probably staffing so we’ll give it a pass. Cocktails aren’t good. Our only real consistent complaint.

    Whether dinning inside or on the Patio, atmosphere is quite pleasant. Service deserves multiple stars. Certain menu items are either a real hit or fall only near the mark. The Funghi and Grilled Polenta make for an excellent start with such a nice Sherry Mushroom Cream sauce. But the Cioppino is misleading. A better name for this dish might be Seafood Marinara over Bucatini. It is fine if you're wanting a Pasta dish. But this is not Cioppino. Over all, my guest and I were satisfied. We'll visit Bela Aquila again.

    2 in our party came for scallops, but Bella Aquila was out of them, so two thirds of our party was disappointed. They are usually good and the service was excellent. Been coming for years; will come back when in town again (hopefully they‘ll have scallops)

    Bella AquilaResponded on September 15, 2021Hello Scott, Thank you so much for dining with us. Unfortunately, the supply chain for fresh seafood, among a great many other products, has been greatly impacted lately. We do our best to continue to source out high quality products but are sometimes forced to remove them from menu availability rather than offer a lesser quality item. I hope we have them back in stock during your next visit, we certainly do love the scallop dish and hope to be able to continue to serve it on a regular basis.
