We are locals, we always love coming here. The atmosphere is wonderful, seating great, inside or out even in winter! I had the "famous steamer clams" and my husband had the shrimp linguini. His linguini was ok, the shrimp were a bit over cooked, but overall flavor was good. My steamer clams were fair at best. The clams were "tiny"... More

Excellent Pork tenderloins and Cajun catfish with Northwest clams. Generous salad and tasty smoked salmon soup. Great bread.

Bella's is a cool place and we had a drink and their bruschetta. Not all that great but the pizza looked good. And the building was built in 1970 for the film The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid, a good James Gang rendering.

A large and varied menu. Old west feel with modern touch. Great out door seating. Good food a bit over priced for type. But I eat here regularly. Great pizza too. Modern Italian menu plus burgers. All in all a friendly fun restaurant with good food

Lunch or dinner Bella usually puts out good food. Lunch can be a better value but dinner is also reasonable. One caution is about the garlic butter that comes with the bread, it will ward off vampires and anyone else that hasn't eaten it. Good local hangout but can be overly crowded during Brit festival and other events.

Homemade potato salad is amazing! Service is good - loved the saloon and back garden! Great food and local wines.

Bella Union has been a landmark in Jacksonville for many years and with good reason. I've never been disappointed yet. Most recently my friend and I stopped in for a bite to eat before a Britt show. We both opted for sandwiches; I chose the Rogue Pastrami Dip, which is grilled with white cheddar cheese, sauteed mushrooms, with au jus... More

It was "okay". The wait staff was nice, but it took them a long time to get around to me. Once they did, they were very attentive. Food was fine but unremarkable.

Our group of 7 had dinner here last Friday. The place was really busy, but they have lots of seating. We were given a separate little dining room (how did they know we'd be noisy? ha). The food was great, and even with the crowds our service was very good. We recommend it!

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Bella Union on a Sunday evening. We sat outside, our favorite place to eat when we dine here. I had Mediterranean prepared Alaska Salmon and my wife had Prime Rib. Both entrees were very well prepared. The salads were fresh, and my wife was able to enjoy some very tasty GF bread.

Thank Bill H
