Good Brunch on the best patio for dining in the area

They have the best patio dining in the greater Boise metro area. It overlooks the Boise River and is nicely shaded. We were there for a family brunch - there were 10 of us - with several true carnivores and several vegetarians. The menu accommodated all with lots of choices. The service was good... read more

We did not have reservations and the balcony above the river was not open. so they seated us next to the wine coolers. It was quiet and a great spot for two. I am a Cioppino snob and was impressed with their interpretation of this San Francisco classic dish. I prefer the large scallops and a spicy sauce. They delivered... More

The entire dining experience from cradle to grave was excellent. Our group was seated at the time of our reservation and the service continued to be outstanding throughout the entire meal. Even the owner came by a couple of time to make sure everything going okay. The pasta dishes were excellent and the black and blue ribeye was probably one... More

Inside is white tablecloth elegant while the outdoor dining is casual. The water features create a soothing white noise that reminds you that you are on the river in Eagle. Looking out to the river, you will see heron, geese and a variety of ducks while you are enjoying some of the best Italian faire around. With prices starting in... More

We had been meaning to go here for a while. Why did we wait so long? From the minute I walked in I knew we were in for a treat. Pretty decor with beautiful wooden wine coolers and orchids that the managers' wife, Amy, who has a flair for arranging them in unique glass containers, welcomed us. We had made... More

After years of hype, we decided to make a trip to Bella Aquila. The bartender was nice, as was the hostess. Our server, on the other hand, was clueless. We brought a very nice bottle of wine with us, as we always do for a celebration. 100% of the time, our server will make a comment about the vintage or... More

We frequent this restaurant often. They have a full well stocked bar and from time to time add a new cocktail to try. The proprietors Ellen and Bill are friendly with all the patrons and give them individual attention. It is like we are family. That makes dining a pleasure. That alone is enough but the food is delicious. The... More

Nice prices- $10 to $12 and a decent pour on the wines in an elegant white tablecloth setting. The food wasn't outstanding, but certainly good.

Service and Food are both good. I loved the baked scallop dish that had a nice creamy sauce over bed of risotto (If I recall correctly). It was heavenly! The Chicken Picata was nice as well. Definitely can recommend.
