On the Boise River with Excellent Food in Romantic Atmosphere

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... read 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.

Went for Valentines and was not too impressed. We had been to this restaurant once before and I remeber how quiet it was. The place was not packed but definitely busy. I was surprised to see such an extensive wine list but selections were mostly "by the bottle" rather than by the glass. Cost of entrees were expensive, soup and... More

We had dinner on the Patio. The view of the Boise River nestled in the trees with the walking pathway was amazing to her. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu. Drinks, dinner were top notch along with the quality and outstanding flavors from the food items. Even the owner stopped by our table to introduce himself and inquire... More

The first time we ate here was in summer it was lovely outside and the food was okay. This time I was with friends and we ate inside. It was over a half hour before the waiter took our order. Beverage service was slow and we had to ask for sugar, creamer, and the like. Once ordered it took about... More

With a beauitiful view of the Boise River and great Italian food this is a great place for family or friends. The service is first class, the portions large and the pace perfect. I have eaten lunch and dinner here and enjoyed both.
