Got a gal who was training. She kept asking me if I was done. I ate solo. Third time she asked I asked if she was trying to kick me out as they don’t close for another hour. She left after that.

The sausage they gave me was cold and the second set was too. May have been something wrong with burner as rest of meal was hot. Normally have wonderful meals there. May not go back for a while now.

We had appetizers, cocktails and entrees; the food was perfectly cooked and well spiced. We would recommend to anyone looking for a delicious Dinner if pasta and seafood or steaks.

Lovely garden breakfast this Sunday. Tables were separated and so nice to be able to be outside. Buffet menu is certainly adequate. We will be back.

Our evening was a birthday celebration. The food was terrific. The waterfall on the patio was pleasant and the trees just made the setting perfect. The wait staff was cheerful and took good care of us. We were given a dessert for our birthday girl. The evening was perfect.
Thank you!

Needed more servers. We were not greeted and had multiple people take our order. It made it confusing and they didn’t seem prepared

Thanks for the feed back, we are so glad you enjoyed your meals with us. Staffing has been quite the challenge with this pandemic. Although we have been lucky enough to be personally unaffected by positive cases, we do take necessary precautions. This means that we do not allow any staff members to come to work if they have any symptoms or have come in contact with any possible exposure. This does leave us short handed sometimes so we remain flexible as a team to get through some nights.

We came here for our 20th anniversary and it didn't disappoint. The food was excellent and the ambience was great. The only negative was my husband's mashed potatoes came out cold. They were without a doubt the gnocchi I've ever had and the sauce was amazing.

Food very good. Need to do a better job of keeping the patio area clean, lots of cobwebs on the railings and leaves etc.... on the patio. Blow the patio off once a day.

We have dined there before and enjoyed it so this time we took some family with us
and they loved it. We really enjoyed the pepperoni pizza appetizer and the drinks were
also good. Two people had salmon and said it was great; two enjoyed pasta and I had
chicken picatta which I ordered last time I went. The mashed potatoes are wonderful
as is the bread.

This was our first venture into dining out since the outbreak of Covid-19 but for a 15th anniversary, birthday, and Father's Day celebration we figured we had to try. It was our second time at Bella Aquila and, like the first time, it was wonderful. Their natural advantage is the ambiance of a shaded patio along the Boise greenbelt in Eagle. They don't rest on that, though, and offer a varied wine list covering most budgets and tastes. We tried the ribeye and the filet and both were prepared to our specifications, which means according to the chef's recommendation. Evan was very attentive throughout dinner and the owner was very personable and welcoming. It's a pretty special place where the dining experience lives up to the ambiance.

We love Bella Aquila, and we love Copper River Salmon, so you can imagine our disappointment when the entree arrived overcooked and dry, diminishing the expected tender, flavorful fish we wait to have once a year. This is not typical of a meal at Bella Aquila. However, the entree was expensive, as is usually the case with Copper River Salmon, but the quality was lacking, especially for the higher than normal entree price. The calamari was delicious as always and the salads were fresh and flavorful.

We will visit this restaurant again, but we won't be taking the chance on the salmon.

Neighborhood gem. Homemade pasta(Prepared daily), fresh seafood (sockeye salmon) ; snake river farms beef. Never disappoints. Riverfront outdoor dining, creative cocktails, extensive wine list, Seasonal dessert specials. Service is outstanding and going above and beyond with social distance and covid-19 protocols. Can’t say enough good things. Best fine dining in Eagle!
