Diner Reviews
  • "We love this restaurant. Right in our neighborhood. We have been there for romantic dinners, family gatherings, a quick bite at the bar. The menu is simple and lovely with nice daily specials and consistently excellent favorites. It is a classic Italian restaurant like you find in small neighborhoods in Rome or Florence. Pastas. Always a nice steak or fish. A small but well balanced wine list and a big open bar."

  • "WE enjoyed our food. Everything was delicious. However, I would never bring anyone to this restaurant for a serious conversation. Way too noisy! Again, the food and the service was excellent. What else can I say?"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Loved it, but I was in a party of 6 and the table we were seated at made it hard for all 6 of us to carry on a conversation without yelling at each other. It was hard to hear each other. Otherwise, we love the restaurant, but it needs more seating for a few larger parties where everyone can sit fairly close together."

  • "Always has been great, must have caught them on an "off" night. Short staffed! We will be back to what is usually a great evening/meal!"

  • "We had a great experience here both with accommodations and food. The service was wonderful, and the menu was flexible for the one in our party who is lactose intolerant and a vegetarian. The flavors of each dish were spectacular. We will make Bria Bistro a part of our regular dining out experiences."

  • "On Friday night my wife and I had a great meal which was well served by a patient and friendly waitress. We have been eating at Brias for a few years and always pleased with food, environment, and service. This night was different because we were rushed away. There were many empty tables and no one waiting. The Manager himself rushed our plates away and rushed payment. I was not yet finished with my wine!! Uncalled for and very much unappreciated! "

  • "So glad Bellevue has a great restaurant - it's always good but continues to get better over the years. Now they've added a darling patio for those of us who prefer outside dining. Chef Barry makes the best soups - always unique and tasty. Four of us dined here this week and we loved it. Shared half price bottles of wine (Wednesday night special),soup, great beet salad and then for entrees we had flat breads and lasagna. This is truly a neighborhood gem!!!"

  • "My wife and I enjoyed spaghetti and meat balls and paella, which were very good and large portions. We sat outside on the terrace on a perfect early summer evening. It was quiet with a slight breeze and a couple of other tables were also occupied. We dressed informally and felt at home. Service was good and not intrusive. It was a splendid occasion. "

  • "My wife, niece and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. Josh (I think) was our waiter. We took our time getting all of our drink, appetizer and food orders done and Josh was good to give us time to make decisions without being overbearing or forgetting us. The food and wine was great and we had a good time. We had the fried mozzarella app along with the caprese app. Both were delicious. I had the flatbread sausage pizza, which was very good and was plenty of food for an entrée. The ladies had lasagna and fettuccini alfredo, which they both like pretty well. All in all, we had a good time with good food. No complaints at all."

  • "Went to Bria this past Saturday night. The service was excellent, and the restaurant itself is as nice as it can be in a strip center. The food was mixed - love the bread dipping sauce but the Caprese salad tomatoes were not as flavorful as I was hoping (but then again they are not in season yet). The Osso Bucco was VERY delicious, but the Veal Rollatini was undercooked and tough. All in all, we will return but will not order the veal again..."

  • "Loved this when we first discovered it. But last two times have been a disappointment. As someone told us, it's hit or miss with. 2 times ago, we started with Italian sausage foccace, but it covered with broccolini stems...and I mean covered. If I want vegetarian, I'll order it. Service was weak and, after paying, pointed out the lack of sausage and excess tree limbs on the remainder of the focacce. The server acknowledged, but the night manager came over and looked, but all he would say was 'I'll let the chef know'. Giving it one more (and final) try, the service was even weaker. Even with a reservation, we were seated next to the reception table. And the service was so poor that most of the meal was comp'd (their suggestion, not mine)"

  • "Had wonderful service at Bria. Server was very knowledgeable about food and wines that were offered. Osso Bucco was outstanding! Half Price wines on Wednesday is a nice touch too!"

  • "We have dined at Bria on several occassions and we are never disappointed. The menu is eclectic and the wine selection is very nice and well rounded. As usual, there was plenty of food and nicely presented. The service was great as usual (thanks Nathan). The mood of the help is always up beat and ready to joke and have a good time along with us. A great way to celebrate my wife's birthday with my daughter there as well... and it didn't hurt a bit that it was 1/2 off wine (Wednesdays). Thanks Bria!"

  • "We arrived late for our reservation on a Wed night due to traffic. They had already seated our friend and let her know we would be late. Wednesday night is half price on wines so we had two bottles at a great deal. We shared the antipasto for an appetizer. It was very good. Our entrees arrived on time and they were delicious. Service was attentive and efficient. We will definitely return. "

  • "We dine at Bria 2-3 times a month as it is in close proximity to home. The food is consistently wonderful, the nightly specials are generally worth trying and the general menu items are always a good choice. "

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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."
