Have enjoyed this location for years. We started going here when we lived in Castleton in the late 90s, once we moved away we kept coming back anyway. For a chain, I’ve always enjoyed their food and been impressed with how fresh everything always is.

10/13/19 this location is closing. Disappointing.

I’ve been coming to this Bravo for at least 20+ years. The service this last visit was not good at all- pretty disappointing for Bravo.

Intended to take advantage of Devour Indy specials, but ended up preferring the regular menu. Reasonable prices and large variety of sauces and preparations made every option a winner. Service a bit slower than usual for to issues at other tables, but server was pleasant and competent. Very nice evening at Bravo. Will return often.

would not go back. worst service i have ever experienced. food was really good!! but service...server kept forgetting about us and our order. restaurant wasn’t even busy, so no excuse to wait 45 minutes for an appetizer you order when the sever takes your first drink order...and 20 minutes to receive that first drink order. again food was really good! but wouldn’t go back because of service issue.

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.

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.
