    We've been here before and knew to expect good food. We were not disappointed! I think you can expect it to be fairly noisy unless you sit in a booth. It was very busy on Friday night! A great neighborhood spot.

    We were seated almost immediately upon arrival, and the center of attention as soon as we were seated. The service was very good. There were three of us in the party, and everyone had the same opinion of the food - very good. This was the first time in this restaurant, and it will not be the last.

    We searched out Carla from her days at Tropicana. She made our meal most memorable then. Her style of cooking set her apart from other Italian restaurant. Was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see her, as she was in Florida. A perfect meal for a birthday celebration. Thanks Carla.

    Just great food! Have ate here several times and find it always delicious. Our waiter was very nice and helpful as was another waiter who wanted to make sure we enjoyed everything about our experience. Now, the manager (who seemed like a manager, he did not introduce himself) was very impersonal and did not show much interest, simply pointed to a table in the distance where we could sit for this dinner. I would go back for the food, but this individuals attitude throughout the course of our meal was hard to swallow.

    This was our first visit to Bratalian and both the food and service were outstanding. I had the Salmon, but others had the Lasagna, chicken special with eggplant and a pasta dist with peppers, chicken and sausage. We all thought our meals were excellent. I like the way the whole staff worked together to make sure everything was great with our dining experience for the entire time we were there. We will definitely be returning.

    Way to much noise from the bar area which is wide open and full of regulars and the noise level permeates the entire restaurant. We sat at the extreme opposite side of the room. We had two main course dishes that tasted if the hot peppercorns were the main ingredient in the sauce. Definitely tell them next time to make them medium heat! The portion size was generous, but menu placemats are good for Red Robin not a good Italian eatery. Too much noise made conversation for the two of us not enjoyable.

    we dined here about a year ago and thought this was a wonderful neighborhood gem. Since then, it has obviously gone down hill. The menus are your placemats. That never used to be and quite frankly the descriptions didn't do much for you. And who wants to pick up their menu to read it at the prices they charge, TACKY. . The waiter was downright rude!

    This was my 3rd time here - each time just gets better. One special was mushroom & fontina cheese stuffed ravioli with a mushroom cream sauce. I wanted to order salmon so asked Walter if he could make an app. portion ravioli for me. He did and it was one of the best things i've ever eaten there. This should be a menu staple from now on. My friend and I ordered the crispy skinned salmon - an excellent choice for sure. Seared crisp outside, moist, tender and perfectly done on the inside. The other friend ordered Veal Saltimbocca which she loved and after tasting it so did I - prosciutto over veal scallops with a delicious sauce and a hint of sage. Service and the food is consistently excellent. Glad Bratalian is in our own neighborhood.

    I am not a huge fan of Italian food, but after eating at Carla's Meatball Spot, I had to try her other place. SO glad that I did! The salads have amazing flavor, are not over dressed, and can be shared. I only tried a few items but look forward to going back and trying more and even organizing some co-workers to go for a team dinner. I highly recommend this place. Good food and good service!

    Dined on 10/1/2013
    We made reservations for our anniversary. When we arrived, there was a reserved table for us (very nice). However, the experience went down from there. The waiter took our order and we basically didn't see him again. After our main course, we waited for someone to notice us. We weren't asked if we wanted coffee or dessert. We waited too long for the check and to have it processed. We left without a happy anniversary, good evening or any thank you for our business. In addition, the food was fair. The meatballs were dry. The calamari over breaded and very salty. The salmon was good. Also, they seemed to cater to "regulars". I would like to know how one becomes a regular with the lack of attention to new diners. We will not be back.

    Food was delicious. Pasta fagioli soup was hearty. Bread was good. We had chicken parm, lasagna and chicken with eggplant. Pasta was ok. The rosemary roasted potatoes were fabulous. We didn't leave a drop. For dessert we shared a ricotta cheesecake with a touch of lemon zest. Best cheesecake ever eaten. The service was spot on. I definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

    This was our first time visiting Bralalian even though we live in the neighborhood. We loved it. My melt-in-your-mouth Chicken Picatta was the best I've ever had, 3 chicken paillards in a silky smooth lemon/caper sauce. Outstanding!! My friend's Salmon Limone, which she suggested I try, was very moist and perfectly done with a crisp skin. She loved it. That will be my choice next time. My other friend had the Lasagna but even though the taste was superb, it had too much cheese for her taste. I agreed. Diner 4 had the Seafood Salad and it was huge. It was Restaurant Week so 2 of us had the 3 course meal for $30.00; a lot of food for the price. We will definitely be back.

    The food was excellent - all homemade and everything we had was delicious. The service was very spotty but, that being said, it was restaurant week and the place was packed so I think they were a bit overwhelmed. This isn't a huge restaurant and I think maybe they didn't anticipate the crowds that would come out for this event. We'll definitely be going back as everyone was so very friendly and all the food coming out across the restaurant looked great.

    We'd been wanting to eat here for a while, and it didn't disappoint. We went due to Restaurant Week. The food is delicious. We had the meatballs, ricotta and cheese ravioli, mussel/clam soup, and past and vodka sauce. The dessert was an apple pie type pastry which was OK. We brought our kids too, and although there is no kids menu. we are able to get a smaller size of the pasta dishes. The restaurant is small and kind of tight. And I think there was only 1 server handling the entire restaurant. However, there were a few bussers/runners and they were all very fast and helpful. I do feel like we waited more than normal for our food and then had to wait a while for the check. But the food was so good, it made it worth it.

    We had dinner reservations at 5:30 which is early so we were the only two in the restaurant. I got there first when I went to sit in the booth the vinyl was ripped and there were crumbs all over the seat. I told the gentleman who seated me and he fixed it right away. Other than that the service was good. I am not sure I saw the Brazilian influence on the menu though. bb
