Not expecting Boise to be a Meca for great italian Cuisine. The menu was extensive and the selections were outstanding. The owner came out to our table and actually sat down with us and we had a nice chat. If I lived in Boise I would come here at least once per month. Probably still couldn't eat the same thing...

We went last night for a couples dinner and had I not been to a much better restaurant the night before maybe I would have accepted their failings better. There are much better places in Eagle, DaVinici's, The Stuffed Olive, and Gino's nearby. The bruschetta tasted like canned tomatoes with olive oil on it. The Hake special I had was... More

We showed up on a lark with no reservations and were warmly greeted and seated out on the lovely patio. All serves were genuine, nice, attentive and made good recommendations when asked. The champagne Cosmo was really good. The carpaccio was excellent! The mushroom risotto was very good, the pasta medetteraneo was excellent! The veal piccata was tough. Gluten free... More

I enjoyed a business dinner, drove out from Boise. A very pleasant setting, with outdoor seating (was 100 degrees so we passed!). The high desert margarita was quite good, served pink in a martini glass. The antipasti appetizer was on the skimpy side, wouldn't get that again. I had the spinach fettuccine which was very tasty indeed, with a mozzarella/tomato... More

Supper at Bella Aquila was one of the finer dining experiences I have had in the greater Boise area. Service was prompt, polite, and personable, and our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. The wine inventory was intimidating, but the wine steward guided us to a bottle that paired perfectly with or entrees. Everything from appetizers to desserts was... More

Sunday brunch, outside, with the sun and river close by, you cannot imagine a more peaceful way to spend the afternoon. Service is always attentive and food is consistently good. The mimosas are wonderful and the egg dishes are delivered warm and delicious. If you just want to sit in the shade of the trees and enjoy a cool drink,... More

Our family has enjoyed Bill and Ellen's hospitality at their Bella Aquila Restaurant many times for lunch and dinner. Whether a dinner for special occasions with friends and family, larger business gatherings, or an intimate couples lunch or dinner, this Eagle location restaurant is a "go to" for any reason. The food is fresh and prepared simply and wine pairings... More

We first visited Bella Aquila in its opening weeks and were hooked from the beginning! We've been 'regulars' ever since, and in addition we frequently chose Bella Aquila for special occasions and almost always as the first restaurant we share with visitors from out of town. The food is generally excellent, the service friendly and efficient, and the setting--both in... More

I passed by Bella Aquila on my last business trip to Eagle. Honestly, I had no idea what I was missing. This time I decided to drop in for dinner with a business associate. We had the Calamari Fritti appetizer which, without a doubt, was the best calamari either of us have ever had. For dinner I had the Fettuccine... More
