My server argued with me. I know I ordered a spaghetti, he even asked me questions pertaining to spaghetti. My wife asked me about why I decided on spaghetti. Then when I didn't get spaghetti, my server told me I got what I ordered. That I was wrong, and gave me a smug attitude. I still have him a 10% tip, but he deserved none. Sitting on the patio was great though.

The entrees, chicken Marsala and sausage tortellini, were delicious. The server was very attentive without hovering. The noise level was a little high but tolerable.

Very disappointed in the new lasagna recipe. There was very little Alfredo sauce on top for one, but mainly did not like the flavors of the meat filling. Bravo has always been my ‘go to place’ for lasagna… My favorite of all the lasagnas I’ve tasted. But this new recipe is not for me.

Ate here for National Lasagna Day with another couple. We were seated immediately. Wait staff very helpful and not intrusive. Got a table by the window which was nice till they seated other people close to us. Manager checked on us to be sure we were happy. Food was up to their usual delicious standards. Free lasagna to take home all around! Only ate half my huge entree as they had my favorite chopped salad on the summer(?) menu to start my meal with. Love their red sauce. The ground beef seems to get a little scarcer every year. Also got cash back for being a Bravo Rewards member. My wife and I will be back as Bravo is our favorite place for a romantic/couples dinner.

I am a long-time patron of Bravo and have to say I was disappointed with my meal. It was not “up to par.” It wasn’t bad, but no where near as good as it used to be. They really need to step up their game.

The pork chops are FANTASTIC! The service is always consistent, you feel well taken care of, the pacing of the food is great, and the price for what you get you can’t beat. Love it here!

Not what it use to be. Wait staff was horrible and stressed because there was a backup in the kitchen. Only way I knew that was because our server was complaining to us about it. Didn't really get a good vibe when we walked in the door and it just didn't feel like a place we wanted to eat that night, but we were committed because we had a reservation. All said, we will not be come back.

The service was extremely good. I wish I had kept a copy of the receipt, but the service was on top of everything. She let nothing slip past and did not rush our meal.

The food was good, as well. Did not have as much seasoning as we are accustomed to at authentic Italian, but we would definitely give this place a 2nd chance if only jistvfor the service and bread!!

Great location and decor.

We were a party of eight and made a last minute reservation via Open Table. I had not been here in years and both the food and service had improved significantly. Camia (sp?) our server was excellent and the dishes were all hot, mistake free, and delivered quickly. I will definitely be back!

when you advertise on open table that lunch starts at 11 am, service, ie tea and hot bread should be available at that time, not 10 minutes after the opening. Just a suggestion.

The food was very good. We had reservations, tables were empty and we still waited almost 30 minutes to be seated. I think they needed more help.

We reserved a table for a Mother’s Day lunch. It was crowded due to the occasion but, the crowd began to thin out around 2:00. Out reservation was for 1:00. The server took our beverage order, brought waters and bread. We ordered wine and salads. Our food arrived before our wine and salads which was awkward getting everything at once. We requested additional bread, that never happened. We ordered desert, coffee and cappuccino. The coffee arrived cold and I was brought a coffee to hold me over until the cappuccino arrived which was almost 10 minutes. I then asked for sugar, I was brought Splenda and other sugar substitutes. I asked if I could have “sugar” this took another 5 minutes. The server returns with a small container with sugar. Besides the poor service, the food is horrible for the price. We will never return.

Delicious food however we went during graduation/prom/mothers day season so it was very crowded and there is no where to sit and wait for your table. Plan ahead!

With a reservation we still had to wait. I was under the impression that we would have a table at the time we reserved it for.

The service was ok, i was offered cheese for my dish and the gentleman never returned and we had to ask for refills on our water .

The food was good especially the appetizers.

My family often gets together at Bravo because it is convenient, they take reservations, and the food is good. We were a little disappointed in the service this time, but it was "prom" night and our poor waiter just simply had too much to do to accommodate everyone. Seems like Bravo should have someone roaming around to make sure everyone has what they need? Will definitely be back.
