BRAVO Cucina Italiana - Buffalo - Walden
Excellent meal. Good wine choices. Our server, Alex wss most excellent
Very busy night but our server was nice and the food was filling.
We enjoyed our dinner, the servers recommendations were spot on, she clearly knew her menu. I wish they had a larger wine selection both by the bottle and by the glass. The only recommendation would be to get more comfortable seating, we’re average sized adults in excellent health. We all commented on how uncomfortable the chairs were. Other than that we’d definitely come back.
Food was hot and delicious. Our server was very engaging and helpful in describing the menu options
They were very busy so service was a tad on the slow side but the food was delicious as per the usual.
Given that it was Mother’s Day our server was attentive and efficient. Tables were very close together but on a regular evening it probably isn’t as big of a deal. Overall food was good, calamari appetizer and salads were excellent
The food was mediocre. The service wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t good. Perhaps they were just busy because it was Mother’s Day. The waiter attempted to overcharge me and when I pointed it out in comparison to another persons bill, he lied and balled up the receipt but corrected the problem as if I couldn’t read. I don’t think I’ll return.
Always hate going out on a holiday but the last 2 years we have gone to Bravo for brunch. Good is always good as well as the service! Thanks Bravo!!
It was my first time there. I had a dinner for my wife's 50th birthday. Her food and my daughter-in-law's food was good . The problem I had was the rigatoni was way under cooked and it was like chewing rubber. My sons chicken was slightly under cook. The manager and waiter were excellent to my concerns
I asked for my dish with no meat as I am vegetarian (you don’t have many listed on the menu)...my dish was delivered cooked with meat. The server took it and asked to have a new dish prepared correctly, but by the time it was ready the rest of our party was finished eating. I ended up taking it home. It was good, just disappointing as far as dinner being a social occasion.
It was a fine dinner. I thought maybe the menu was a little limited but they're good at what they did have.
Great, but for the portions. Small dish of pasta, everything else great.
Excellent food and service as well as very fair pricing!
We are regular diners at BRAVO Cucina in Buffalo on Walden. The food was outstanding. I have never as yet had anything that was not perfectly prepared and presented. The service is always outstanding and was no different Easter Sunday. The atmosphere at BRAVO is very conducive to fine dining. We hosted several dinners at BRAVO and as usual it is our go to restaurant. The GM, Brian, has always taken excellent care of us along with his assistants. Although we did not have one of our usual servers, Marie or Adrian, the server who took care of us was outstanding. This was however the first time I used the online reservation system and it worked perfectly. Kudos to BRAVO Cucina - Buffalo.
PS: Could you bring back the bread pudding? It has always been outstanding and we do miss it.
Love the food and the service...always a treat to eat at Bravo
Excellent meal and service!
Marie was our server and she was excellent!
Service was excellent. Mark has served us previously and is consistently attentive to details and special orders. All beef meatballs are delicious, as are the house and Caesar salads. One of us had the salmon and said it was cooked as ordered and was delicious. Italian wedding soup was very good. Noise was a bit louder but the restaurant was full. One of our favorites and never disappoints.
Portions were small for the price charged. Rigatoni’s were lukewarm. Meatball was tasty.
Waiter seldom came around and it was not busy. Didn’t offer to fill water or coffee until after the meal was over. Check given with no offer of dessert.
Excellent food and excellent service. Also have the convenience of shipping afterwards, there is also valet parking available.
Convenient location inside mall. Food is very average.
It was delicious!
We were greeted by the general manager, Brian when we walked in the door and he later stopped over at our table; he was very kind and sociable, congratulated us on our expecting baby and mentioned the private room they have to host showers and parties. Our server was Nick, who we will request on all future visits (this was our first time dining in their restaurant) was very attentive and helpful, we had conversation and joked with him; Nick made us feel like it was a friend taking care of us. For food we started with the calamari, which my wife loves but I usually don’t......to my surprise I loved theirs and ate more than my wife wanted to share. We also had the caprese salad which we loved and tried the Margherita pizza which was amazing and we will order every time we visit.
Thanks for the great service!
Our server was fantastic. Every one's food was great. We really enjoyed our dinner.
I have eaten at Bravo on numerous occasions with friends and family and I have always been quite happy and satisfied with my meal and service!
Unfortunately, Wednesday March 27th I was some what disappointed with a few things in regards to the service as the waitress never came to ask how our meal was until we were almost done eating. We were also never asked if we wanted more water or anything else to drink other than if we wanted dessert.
The meal itself was delicious but not the quantity or quality that I have eaten at Bravo previous times.
Thank you for giving me the time to give my feedback.
I had shrimp scampi and it was delicious. Everything was wonderful there, except you hardly get any food. I could have eaten a second one to fill me up. My friend, also said that she could have had a second salmon. I would definitely recommend Bravo. I would also mention that the it is lacking in the amount of food. The bread, didn't cut it. Maybe, you should offer a salad.
We love Bravo and go often. Great food. Great service.
Great lunch with very fresh ingredients, tomatoes on capellini with chicken caprese. Have been several times and won’t hesitate to go again when in the neighbourhood.
Service was honest and perfect in delivering an Italian lunch experience.
Service far exceeded my expectations! Food always fantastic!
great always good service and very good quality. We will be back for sure
Bravo is a good restaurant with predictably good food. The service can be spotty but it was very good this time. All in all, if you want a decent chain restaurant Bravo fits the bill.
One of my favorite places in Buffalo. Always a great experience there~
Another outstanding experience at Bravo. The ambiance is very comfortable and appealing. As always the food was top notch- preparation, appearance and especially the taste. Our server (whose name escapes me) was also outstanding. Very cordial, polite and efficient. Excellent value for the price too. Cannot ever go wrong with Bravo Cucina Italiana.
We eat at Bravo Cucina often and have enjoyed our lunch or dinner each time. This time I tried a pasta dish I had not tried before. Spaghetti Cacio E Pepe. It is a lovely bowl of spaghetti with a lot of cracked black pepper. I enjoyed it very much.
Food was excellent and our server was superb.
We were sat in back banquet room. They beginning of the dining experience was nice because there was just us and another small party present. Two larger parties joined in which increased the noise level and also blocked us in to the back corner. We have had better experience with our food here before. It wasn’t bad but we have had much better in past. Service was wonderful until the two other parties came, then it slowed down, which is expected.
Never been here. Hard to find parking nearby because it’s in a mall.
Went with a friend for my first (and last) visit to Bravo for dinner. Extremely underwhelming, especially for the price.
I will say that the staff were top notch and we were very happy with our service. But everything else left us wanting.
The menu is rather narrow and I felt there were very few options available. I ordered the chicken parm with cappellini. The chicken was fine and cooked nicely, but the flavor really lacked; this was something I easily could have made better by myself at home.
The cappellini pasta was not good. Overcooked and limp with far too much tomato sauce (especially for such a small pasta). The sauce was very much on the sweet side and was so generic that I was baffled it was served this way; it tasted as though someone had opened a container of tomato puree and heated it, then served it without adding much seasoning or any other flavor. Definitely not a fan of the tomato sauce. Nearly all of my cappellini remained on my plate.
My friend ordered a Caesar salad as an appetizer, which I also tried a couple bites of. Generic. Not enough dressing. Again, I make better salads at home. I did enjoy the Italian wedding soup that I ordered, so kudos there.
Desserts were good. I enjoyed my molten chocolate cake, which was quite rich. I would've preferred a wider selection of hot tea, but I don't hold this against them since I know there's not as much demand for this.
This place seems to put on upscale airs, but in my opinion it's just a step or two above Olive Garden. I will not return. If you're looking for Italian food, I strongly suggest you look elsewhere.
All meals we excellent as far as taste but I did have a problem with my wife's meal. The macaroni was cooked but there was very little if any boloneges sauce to be found. If I had not ordered sauce on the side her dish would have been bone dry. Check #779. Your meatballs are excellent just like Mom used to make but lacking the "raisins" which give s touch of sweetness to the meatball and sauce.
Had a poor overall experience. The most bothersome part of the evening was listening to the food expo manager yell st the staff and slam trays. Please not it was not the GM or female manager. I have been s frequent diner for years but the actions I witnessed and lack of service as well as the loud voice and temper tantrum made a very unpleasant visit
