Our first time to this restaurant.
The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and accommodating. It was not a busy evening which made it great to visit with those with you. Great dinner and we will return."

We have been here three times now
for special occasions and have never been disappointed with the quality and taste of the food as well as the impeccable but friendly service. My favourite is the San Marzano tomato gnocchi, and if I had but one complaint it would be that I was never given enough, not because I am left hungry but because it tastes so good. My husband loves the Cast Iron Rib Eye which is done perfectly to his liking. We enjoy taking people here and introducing them to a terrific restaurant. Wonderful location to walk around Toronto's flatiron and St Lawrence Market area."

Arrived on a mid week night about
7.30. Not too many diners. The starters were great. The mains were slightly over - cooked. Wine was good. Overall- not bad. But it's not super cheap - so perhaps we were expecting a slightly better experience."

If you want a place that takes
care of your dinning needs from start to finish, and looks after every detail. This is place. The servers are "there, when you need them". A special place that I have frequented for years. The only thing that has changed , is the food gets better. A great place for pretty much any occasion."

We were a group of 6 adults two of
whom were celebrating their wedding anniversary. All of us greatly enjoyed the cozy ambience that reminded us of Tuscany. The service was attentive without being overbearing or pushy. The quality of food was excellent and we were impressed when we asked to share an Entree-portion of Gnocchi as an appetizer that they divided it into three plates; one for each couple. We all especially enjoyed the Chianti Classico wine which seemed only appropriate for a place like this. None of us had heard of this restaurant before but all of us will be going back."

Had business dinner here and the
food was truly outstanding. Our group managed to order a selection of pasta dishes as well as meat and everyone was very happy. The wine list was also extensive with a healthy selection from Italy, which helps immensely. We wondered why the place was so quiet for such a great place but maybe that helped us get a table at late notice so no real complaints! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the city and wanting high quality food experience."

You easily slip into the setting.
The dining room is not crowded as the tables are largely and fairly spaced. There are a number of nooks and crannies for a more private dining feel. The menu is sophisticated, taking simple food items to new heights. The freshness of the ingredients and the perfect cooking make this a feast each time we come here. The service is as a good as the food. Kudos to David and the team."

Excellent Italian food, quaint

Our small group had a great
dinner, chairs are very comfortable!"
Dined on 5/1/2014
The surrounding neighbourhood is
very cute; however, the restaurant itself was disappointing. We felt rushed to order (we were told the kitchen was closing soon - around 9pm on a Thursday - yet they accepted our 8pm reso), then found the service to be very unattentive once we had ordered. We ordered the beef carpaccio (The caesar type of dressing they drizzled on top overpowered all other flavours), the calamari (tasty) and the scallop risotto. There was one scallop in the risotto. The wine was good though! Further to that their bathrooms need an upgrade/cleaning. Of all the Italian choices around the city, I would choose elsewhere."

$110 for 2 for lunch for a salad,
pasta and coffee with nothing but water to drink. this place needs a menu price reduction"

We went to Bravi Ristorante as the
first stop to our girls night out! Great service followed by delicious appetizers and entrees! All 3 of us were raving how great OUR food was! I would definitely go back! In fact, I will make sure it's sooner rather than later..."

We found the food, service and
ambience of this restaurant to be outstanding. We have many compliments on the choice of venue and they exceeded our expectations. Bravo, Bravi!"

We were catered to from the moment
we walked in. We had a group of 8 celebrating o special occasion. The wine was wonderful, the food was delicious with a great selection for varied palettes. Jim our server went over and about to make our experience a very special one! This is definitely a restaurant to try if you love great food and a fun evening out. Pravda, a vodka bar is next door and a lot of fun for dancing your calories away!"

The restaurant was not very
crowded, but it was also very cold. My wife and I met a friend for dinner and picked Bravi based on the reviews. The service, food and atmosphere were great. Our friend had the Chilean Sea Bass and raved about. My calamari appetizer was excellent, beautifully presented and very tasty. My wife had the risotto and unusually for her, she finished it all. The wine list is limited at the mid-price range. Although out of our first two selections (one white and one red), the substitutes in the same price range were quite nice. Worth a visit!"

I have no issue other than we
booked on a night when an office party was also happening.in.hindsight would have been wise for staff to have suggested an alternate adate.."

Bravi is a great Italian
restaurant. Consistently great food and service with an excellent wine list and is easily accessible from anywhere downtown at its location on 40 Wellington E. I happened to be in town from Calgary and was so glad to be able to stop in !"
Dined on 12/3/2013
Not sure what the problem was but
we waited twice for over 20 minutes without a visit from our server. Other staff walked by but no one could be bothered to stop and take our order or bring us our bill. this service level would have been more understandable if the restaurant had been busy but it was pre-theatre and only about half full. we'd been to Bravi once before and quite enjoyed the experience but likely won't be going back."

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner with
friends last Friday and it was delicious! In fact I continue to think of the veal with the side of lasagna like pasta to this day. Cozy atmosphere and friendly manager..a real treat before our ACC show,. We will be back!"

The food was very tasty and
sophisticated. It was clearly above the level of your average Italian restaurant. We did find that the sauces and foams were a bit rich, though. The dishes tasted fresh and the specials were interesting. We did not feel rushed and enjoyed the service."
Dined on 10/19/2013
Menu is some what limited in terms
of choices. Service was good until it came time to get the bill! Food was good and atmosphere pleasant"
Dined on 10/8/2013
Food was ok, should mention hot
peppers are part of their tomato sauce, completely ignored by server all evening, and the light kept changing brightness throughout the whole dinner very frustrating."
Dined on 9/25/2013
Where Bravi's falls down is the
obvious inexperience of its staff and what it's kitchen can and cannot do in terms of dealing with food allergies etc(lactose intolerant )-you pay top price and the service should be flawless."
Dined on 9/21/2013
I have had the good fortune to be
a Bravi user for a number of years. It has never let me down and it is definitely one of my favourite haunts in Toronto. Menu is not too long but always interesting. Specials are worth a listen. Wine selection is more than adequate. Service is attentive without be intrusive. Two special tables - the wine alcove and the elevator - are among the best around if you want to avoid other diners."
Dined on 8/13/2013
The kitchen is quite adept at
infusing interesting spice hints throughout it's menu. A bit pricey but they deliver in choice, service, preparation and most importantly, an outstanding pull of espresso to complete a very pleasant dining experience."
Dined on 8/12/2013
Bravi's strong point is the
consistency of its food and service. The food is hearty, straight-forward and perfectly executed, full of rustic flavour. Service is exceedingly attentive and professional, without any of the casualness and false-familiarity that plague many places. The comfortable ambience of Bravi's brick and beam décor makes it a perfect choice for any occasion, day or night, whether family, work or romantic. Dining at Bravi is always a satisfying experience - a fantastic combination of food, service and ambience!"
Dined on 7/4/2013
The service was very good. We all
had the corn soup -- it was outstanding. Two of us had the special sirloin with parsnip mash -- it was beautifully cooked and very tasty. One had the gorgonzola pasta (the server was kind enough to ask if the diner knew what gorgonzola tasted like) the other fish. We haven't been to Bravi for a while -- we will be sure to return before too long."
Dined on 6/7/2013
Delicious food. Had a beef
tenderloin that was cooked to perfection. My wife had the Chestnut Gnocchi at the waitresses' suggestion. Definitely a great way to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Service could have been speedier, but the wait staff also doubled as bartenders. But she was really nice and attentive when she was with us. Would definitely return."
Dined on 4/20/2013
Restaurant was very accommodating;
chef made a special pasta dish on request. Pasta was aldente and all the entres were well prepared. Not a foodie place but consistant, nice ambiance and good service. We chose it for it's location a few doors from the Reservoir Lounge for dancing after dinner. First time but would definitely go back."
Dined on 4/20/2013
The food was excellent , and our
server recommended the dessert wine which is very good too."

My husband and I had dinner at
Bravi Ristorante for our 5th aniversary, and we had a lovely evening. The staff was very attentive and friendly, and the food was excellent. The beef carpaccio was so good, I wished it was my main course! My husband also had a couple of nice options for vegetarian courses, which was the reason I chose Bravi when looking for a restaurant. We will come back for sure."

My wife and I enjoyed a relaxed
meal in the alcove with an excellent meal and wine"

My daughter and I thoroughly
enjoyed the restaurant. When we informed the waiter that we had to leave at a certain time to go to the theatre he made sure each course was served promptly. I would definitely go there again."
Dined on 3/20/2013
This is our first time at Bravi.
The food was excellent with many choices. Wife had gorgonzola gnocchi, while I had braised lamb shank. Wine list was very nice and reasonable. The service was excellent. We will go back."

Bravi is a great resturant for
bisiness lunches as the food is good, the service attentive and the tables not crammed together so private conversations are possible."
Dined on 3/7/2013
My second time here (first was for
lunch). This time I was with a group of 4...all of us who have a lot of experience dining in fine restaurants of varying degrees. Bravi is excellent...and by far the best carbonarra pasta I have had in Toronto! I willd definitely put this on my 'must do' list again."
Dined on 3/2/2013
Try the Risotto Calabrese, it is
pure heaven! All food served was outstanding, service excellent and good vibe at the restaurant. Highly recommended. Nice little bar area if you just want to stop by for a glass or two."
