 (Toronto)·Dined 6 days ago

I have been looking for a neighbourhood Italian restaurant so I went with high hopes. The ambiance is lovely and warm. Our appetizer of calamari was very tasty. My husband orderedthe gnocchi as his main course. When they brought it out, I laughed because it didn’t even look large enough to be an appetizer portion, which it was not. The portion hardly covered the bottom of the bowl. The server, seeing my astonishment, said it was very filling. Perhaps for a child, not my husband. Luckily my order of cornish hen which was good was large enough to share. But had I ordered differently, we would have left hungry. How much is it to add more gnocchi which themselves are not expensive? They didn’t even need to add more sauce! So we won’t be back. They lost customers over a few gnocchi.

The entire experience was quite lovely. The staff were alert and attentive, our drinks and meal were served in a timely manner and the food (Leek Soup and Halibut on a Kale bed) was the right temperature and delicious. Little things mean so much: the mineral water was chilled, my (classic) Martini was put together perfectly and chilled just the way I asked for it and, after dinner, my guest and I were left to ourselves to chat after dinner without any push to pay the bill.

I also ordered a glass of Prosecco. As it happens, there was only enough to fill about 3/4 of my stem glass. Know what? On the house! Classy and elegant.

I really cannot find anything to complain about and I would re-visit the restaurant anytime. Everyone did his / her job professionally, discretely and with good taste and judgment. We both had a great meal, excellent service and a thoroughly memorable dining experience.

WE arrived at 12:15 pm for a business lunch. Although we ordered within 30 minutes of arrival our meal was not served until 2:07 pm. This was a problem as both myself and my party had to be at a meeting by 2:30 pm. So we had to gobble our food. I ordered the soup of the day and the special of day which was Halibut. Soup was fine. Fish was very dried out but ate some of it since we were rushed. No time for dessert or coffee. To me this is inexcusable and certainly my client was not impressed.

I’ve eaten here often but I was disappointed on this visit. The service was not up to the usual standard. I arrived earlier than my dining partner and was not offered a drink other than water. It was a cold evening and our table was in line with the front door making it very cold each time the front door opened. A few time the door did not close on its own. I had to eat with my coat on and so did my date. An unpleasant experience and embarrassing since I’d chosen the restaurant. I found the pasta portions very small for the price and we were not offered a dessert menu and not coffee until we rose to leave. All in all, while usually a favourite restaurant I would be cautious recommending to friends in winter.

We had amazing service and the food was excellent. The portion sizes are perfect, not too big and not too small. We had appetizers, entrees and dessert. I highly recommend the butternut squash ravioli and the tirimisu. Amazing food!

We had the perfect dining experience at Bravi. The decor is tasteful, cozy and warm. The atmosphere is intimate yet each table had privacy. The food was spectacular. I started with the appetizer special: a cream of mushroom soup. The texture was perfect and the flavour and aroma was woodsy with a delicious added touch of truffle oil. My husband had the Caprese salad which he said was very good; the tomatoes were ripe and meaty, the Buffala Mozarella was firm and sweetly fresh, finished off with a lovely Balsamic dressing. We both had the Papparadelle with Bolognese Ragu. The sauce was perfection, the pasta was tender. The portion sizes were exact and the food was hot and fresh. We had the dessert special; Lemon Meringue Tart which had a tender flaky crust with a tart lemon filling topped by toasted meringue. The service was excellent, attentive and pleasant. Our water glasses were filled without our having to ask. This was one of the best restaurant experiences we have ever had. We highly recommend Bravi for any occasion and we will no doubt return whenever we are in Toronto.

Went with my partner for our first anniversary. The server was warm and welcoming, the service was prompt and delightful. We were especially impressed when our starters arrived - we were splitting two of them, and rather than sharing off each other's plates, the kitchen crafted custom plates for both of us with a portion of each starter on each plate.

You can also never go wrong with a glass of Prosecco.

Made a reservation on December 24th as it was listed as open. We arrived with our cab to a closed restaurant and had to make last minute arrangements elsewhere. Very, very poor service to customers. Will not recommend and will not try and book again. Have the decency to update when you will be closed please !

Great restaurant, love their aged Balsamic vinegar. Don't like the fact that they charge for still water. You have to explicitly tell tap water, which I found out after receding the bill.

Our waitress was very helpful, observant and efficient. Food definitely top notch and wine selection great. I had the grilled calamari which was tender, butternut squash ravioli was even better then on my last visit a few years ago. Companions had Pasta Bolonese and beef tenderloin which they both said was fantastic. Definitely a place I will return to and recommend to visitors.

We had dinner with close friends and were able to have a good meal and conversation - they let us stay and continue talking well past the point where we were finished our meals.

Thank you Bravi!
