BRAVO Cucina Italiana - Indianapolis - Castleton
Great service & creative new menu with tasty shrimp Napoli, spicy & savory, great bartender mixologist & bread with signature dipping sauce, lots of specials if sign up for emails.
I have enjoyed going to Bravos for many years. We all truly enjoy our meals and will always come back. 3 of us had the awesome lasagna and the 4th had the steak and mashed potatoes. Again all four dinners were awesome and we have never had a bad meal at Bravos. Next time I will get the awesome Pork Chops I haven't had those for years and looking forward to them. I fully recommend Bravos!
My spaghetti bolongnese was outstanding. Daughter’s pasta Yandolino just ok. Good experience.
It was great. We took our 2 yr old in there this time and it wasn't too crowded and we were able to let him just explore the area and none of the servers appeared to mind.
Went on a BOGO Sunday night. Restaurant pleasantly full. Server took a while to greet us - was busy on computer. 'Fresh' foccacia bread was crisp and dry rather than soft and moist. Love their dipping oil! My wife had a specialty spaghetti which was tasty but small in portion size. I had their signature lasagna which seems heavier on the cheese and lighter on the beef than it used to be. Each of us had a glass of wine where their placido chianti was quite good. The server finally ran my club card at my seeming insistence. Including tip, $45 for a meal which I consider a moderate price for two. I will be back!
Always good food and service. Nice atmosphere and reasonable price compared to today's prices.
We were placed at a table right next to the serving station and couldn't hold any conversation over the noise. When asked to move our waitress walked away without a response. At which point we left and went to another restaurant. Overall it was a poor experience.
Good food. Good atmosphere. Clean and staff friendly
I was not impressed with the service or food. I was expecting much more from this establishment.
Great food and atmosphere. Disappointed in the fact of having a 7:30 reservation, arriving at 7:10, and still not seated until after 8!
Restaurant was packed and noise level high making it difficult to carry on conversation. Food was delicious.
Bravo just make you feel good. The best comfort food around.
The food was good, service was very poor. Wait staff never came to the table. We received our appetizer and completely finished it before we got our first Bread Basket or drink refills. We had to stop another waiter waiting on another table and to assist us with drink refills and bread.
The NY Strip was amazing. And the chops were even more amazing. My kids loved all of the pasta dishes.
The server did a good job on a night when it was very busy. Food was good.
Food was not hot and not super flavorful. Additionally, made reservations at 6:30, but was not seated until after 7. This was quite disappointing.
Quiet and pleasant environment. Food was delicious and the price was shockingly pleasant
The food was great, and our waiter Christopher was simply outstanding in his service and kindness. It made our night very special!
Excellent food and fair priced. Good service on a very busy night.
Food was not hot
This is the second time the food was overcooked n not the value I've experienced last 20 years. Very unhappy with my dinner
The food was very dry and proportions were very small for the price
Food was mostly just OK. It was nice that they gave us a free sampler appetizer (trying to promote new items). But the speed of food service was really lousy. We noticed almost everyone around us that came in after us already had their food or had finished their meals. I think our waitress could see the look of concern on our faces, so she finally started to investigate. We had been there for an hour at that point. She informed us that the kitchen had started a buffet order for a large group coming in and lost our order. All we got out of the deal was free drinks. Total time there was 1 hour 45 minutes. Not great for lunch. Good thing it was Saturday. I probably won’t risk this particular restaurant again.
I had a great dinner at Bravo! The lobster ravioli I ordered was delicious. Bread, salad, and entree all arrived is a timely manner and our waiter was very attentive.
Menu has changed since last visit and fewer options but same basic Italian standards. Underwhelming but safe option. Pricey for what you get.
My food was cold, not very flavorful. There was a guest situation that was not addressed by a manager. Went for devour and had to request a menu...the value of choice was not worth the cost. Not at all the same place I visited several years ago
Really great food on the Devour Indy menu, but they over reserved their tables. I showed up on time for the reservation and it took over an hour past the reservation time to get seated
Our server was fantastic and the food was excellent as well!
Overall, we had good experience there at the restaurant...
Our server was great. I was disappointed in the eggplant parmesan. It was tough.
This used to be our favorite restaurant but it’s really declined in the last couple of years. They’ve changed their menu and have very few pasta dishes to choose from for being an Italian restaurant. New menu is very small. Salad wasn’t fresh and didn’t have much dressing on it. The bread was stale and hard. The oil - which used to be the best in town - tastes a little different and they were very stingy with the amount they gave us. We had to ask for more several times and each time he only gave us enough for two pieces of bread. Our server was nice but our food came out before we were even halfway through our salads. Sadly we won’t be going back.
Our waitress, I believe her name was Lori, she was phenomenal, very accommodating to my dietary needs and was overall, fun and very very good!!!! Will ask for her, when we go back.
A really nice resturant. We enjoyed the atmosphere , and they really do a great pasta.
For a very busy New Year’s Eve - they did a great job!
Service that night was exceptional. All our needs were met quickly.
Have never had worse overall service. Had reservations at 7:30, didn’t get sat until after 8. Took an hour from ordering our food to actually get it. Slowest service I’ve ever had. Unbelievable they were understaffed and/or overbooked reservations on New Year’s Eve. Absolutely will not recommend this restaurant and unlikely I’ll return.
