“Take Out”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Ordered pizza for take out. Enjoyed good selection of draft beer. Turn of the century decor was very pleasant. Pizza was good. More upscale topping selection. Nice bar. Dining room and outside seating available.

“Minimal service and average food”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We ventured to Jacksonville for a lunch at Bella Union for my mother's birthday celebration. We were seated promptly and asked what we'd like to drink. The attendant who brought out half of the drinks slammed them down and when I inquired about the other drinks she looked irked with the question. She then said: "Your server will bring them" and walked off. I assumed she was our server, but apparently she was busing tables.

Our server was pleasant and took our order, but we only saw her twice more; when she brought our food and when she brought our ticket and a free birthday dessert.

There was no refilling of water or drinks. No checking in to see if the food was OK; it was, but it's always nice to get an ask on that front. The food had arrived later than we'd have expected it to for sandwiches and although the room we were in was not busy, maybe other parts of the place were and we just didn't see it?

Prices are average ($13 for a sandwich) with soda ($2.75). Our bill for four lunches was $63 which I thought was pretty high considering the lack of service and waiting time.

This has always been a good place to eat in J-ville, but this experience wasn't our best. I'll give it another try one day, but maybe after the summer and Britt Festival seasons have passed. Maybe the servers are just worn out and tired of smiling this late in the season?

“Great Pizza - Excellent Customer Service - Fun Atmoshphere”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Met here for our friend's wedding rehearsal dinner. The pizza was amazing, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was very fun. The Rogue and Balzarini Pizzas were my two favorite. Great place for a get-together!!!

“overpriced,overrated, not so helpful”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Our friend reserved outside for 8 ladies, not knowing at the time it would be 104 this day. The
staff stated they were too full to move us inside to an air conditioned room. I discovered by accident that one dining room was only being used by 4 people, and there was a lot of room in there for more patrons. Not so helpful. The menu selections were overpriced, even for Jacksonville in summer, and the food mediocre at best. We are all local people, and I have lived in this area since 1973. Bella Union has never been one of my places to go and today clinched it

“Walked Out”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Had a great day shopping in Jacksonville yesterday afternoon then we got hungry for pizza. We were seated and decided what we wanted.....downhill from there. We waited several minutes for our waiter who kept passing our table even though our menus were off to the side and it obviously wasn't that busy if there's time to be wandering. We eventually order our pizza (menu says allow 30 minutes). Seemed like we were there a long time so my mom checked her phone and saw we'd been there about 45 minutes. We asked our waiter and he said it should be done anytime. We waited five more minutes and said we wanted our check to pay for the drinks. He disappeared afain and we went to the front where there was...you guessed it NO ONE there. The hostess appeared and couldn't charge us because our stuff wasn't charged yet. The manager finally showed and said he wasn't going to charge us for the drinks but the pizza is ready now (all of a sudden). My mom said we'd been there for almost an hour to which he said the pizzas take about 45 minutes to bake... even though the menu says 30. We then left.
