The interior is immaculate and charming, and local rock-'n'-roll favorites "The Rebecca Scott Decision" and "Fat John & The Three Slims" jam here regularly. There is limited seating, and a small dance floor. Downstairs is J.T. Toad's, another live music venue.
Bella Aquila is a local favorite for exquisite Italian dishes. Gaze out from the windows at the pristine Boise river and the locals having a good time on its banks. The restaurant promises a wonderful time to diners with a pleasurable ambience, delicious food and excellent service.
