  • "Alfredo sauce !!! Literally unlike any other Alfredo sauce I have ever tasted . Simply a taste bud life changer ! Also, the Mediterranean flatbread ... Beyond better than I anticipated . It truly is a neighborhood gem and while further away from the epicenter of most Nashville restaurants , I certainly suggest making the extra 10 min trip to try this pasta heaven out ! The staff did a superb job at taking care of us as well!"

  • "It was okay, nothing really stood out food wise. This is a great neighborhood restaurant which is really needed. The menu is simple and safe covering all the Italian basics."

  • "Focacce (fancy name for pizza) was filling and appropriately over-priced. They did not have a table ready for us at our reservation time. Ended up seated, literally, next to the reception stand. That aside, it is an upscale watering hole with tasty Italian food for the empty-nest set."

  • "My husband and I dined at Bria Friday night. The food, wait staff, ambiance, all were perfect! We will definitely be back...SOON!"

  • "First time eating here and I was looking for something special, not expensive, and off the beaten path for Valentine's Day. Success for all the above points. In short, it was great. We were impressed and the special holiday menu was EXCELLENT. I don't know if it was the holiday/weekend, but it was a full house so it was a bit noisy in there but i guess that was a good sign. Our server, while great, did seem a bit busy probably due to the hectic night. We hope to return!"

  • "We absolutely love this restaurant. This is where we had our first date and frequent this place at least 3 times per month. The atmosphere is perfect for a romantic dinner or for meeting friends after work. The bar always has a great vibe. The food is consistently well prepared and very tasty. All the staff, from hostess to bartenders to the owners, are always friendly and go above and beyond to make your dining experience the best it can be. I hope this restaurant hangs around for a long time."

  • "We have absolutely loved having this place so close to wear we live. Working downtown,we don't always want to head back downtown for a very nice dinner. I would easily put Bria up against a lot of restaurants downtown."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Suggestion for seniors or anyone else not famished. Due to the generous portions one entree is sufficient for two. Next time we'll each order soup or appetizers and one entree to share. For those that are hungry, you will want to ignore this suggestion."

  • "Great atmosphere and the food was excellent and simply amazing for this part of Bellevue. It was our wedding anniversary and we asked our waiter to give us plenty of time and not to rush us through our meal. He was there when we needed him and knew when to give us space. We will definitely return!"

  • "We moved to Nashville from the Washington DC area where excellent restaurants abound. I have been disappointed in the Nashville dining scene to say the least. Part of the problem is that we are vegetarians and most places do not have many options for us. Bria had lots of options because the pastas are served vegetarian and you can add the meat of your choice to them. The real point of this review is that the food was outstanding. We were thrilled to find such amazing food at this out of the way restaurant. Everything was fabulous. It was easily the best dining experience we have had since moving here almost 8 years ago! The service (Ryan was our waiter) was great too. We have already made plans to return for our daughter's birthday dinner."

  • "Every visit has offered wonderful food, a varies and interesting menu, terrific specials and impeccable service. They only take reservations for 6, which we made, but an hour before we called with our party of 9 and they quickly found a way to accommodate us very nicely. It is a hidden jewel and our party, from all over the country, all left very impressed. Remains one of my favorites."

  • "Really wanted to love this place- small, inviting, cozy w/ a limited gourmet selection. The best part of the experience was our waiter Jason who was so accommodating, personable & attentive. With the amount of wait staff & very few customers when we were seated, was disappointed the food was not hot & the one dish- lasagna was not very good at all. From a culinary standpoint, fair food, limited selection & extremely over priced desserts. It was also a member of the parties b'day & not even a complimentary anything was offered. For a small town Italian restaurant in an upscale area- good will, customer service & good food makes the grade. Waiter five stars- food & some pricing -two:("

  • "Another great experience at Bria. Without question, this is the best restaurant in the Bellevue area. Always give serious consideration to the specials - they are creative, well-executed and delicious."

  • "We were immediately greeted by friendly personnel and taken to our seats. The waiter was very prompt and friendly, bringing us warm bread and the oil mixture. I did not care for the fennel in the oil mixture, but the bread was light and tasty and warm. Our order came quite quickly and it was a very enjoyable dinner."

  • "I read the reviews on Open Table and this place hit the mark. All 5 of us enjoyed our meals immensely."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Food overall all good. Cooked right and presentation was good. Way too many spices. Too much basil and lemon in the Chicken Piccata. The Spaghetti was good and so were the meatballs. The bread was good but the oil with spices had too many different combinations of spices."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "A disappointing experience. We had the Antipasto for a starter and that was good- no complaints - but it was downhill from there. The menu looked terrific, but both mine and my companion's dishes were swimming in oil/butter and were way over seasoned. My pasta dish had so many flavors I couldn't tell what I was eating - the Pappardelle. We ordered the cheesecake for desert and it came straight out of the Cisco box, drenched in some overly sweet jam with a stale funnel-cake monstrosity on the side. Discussing! The meal cost $120 with a cocktail and a moderately priced glass of wine each. For that price, I can think of a lot of restaurants that would provide a superior dining experience."

  • "We have been to Bria several times and have never been disappointed! This is a neighborhood gem with great food, great service and a great atmosphere. Bria is perfect for that special occasion, a casual meal with the family or a group dinner. There are other good Italian restaurants in town but none of them have the same charm and why wait a long time for a table when Bria's is an option? We will keep going back!"

  • "Bria is our local restaurant of choice. They have a menu that stretches from simple Italian fare to delicious specialty items and outstanding daily specials. The staff is very friendly and always there to ensure that everything you need or want is supplied. Joe has got to be the best server in America."

  • "We had mussels as a starter and they were hands down the best ever in Nashville. There were three of us dining and everyone was very happy with their order. The wine was excellent and staff were friendly and very professional. Bria is without question my new favorite for Italian food in Nashville. I am glad that my wife finally convinced me to drive a few miles and try Bria. We were certainly not disappointed."
