I have eaten here many times. I love the bread they serve before the meal and they bring more and more if you want it. The pasta dishes are great.

Three of the four of us was celebrating our 60th Birthday and the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was wonderful but our waiter was the worst I think I have ever had especially spending $40 plus for each of us. We had to ask for everything and we never was asked if we wanted to purchase more beverages and even when we did ask for something it was 20 minutes later and still had to remind him what we asked for. If it was busy I could somewhat understand but there was 6 tables in the restaurant that was in use and he even made the comment that they were very very slow tonight so there is no excuse for the terrible service. The best thing there was the delicious food.

I ordered the lasagna. Was disappointed it wasnt layered like most lasagna. It was very good, but i think for $18 it would have been bigger (thicker) or at least have come with a salad. Only thing that made it worth the $18 was that i received another lasagna to take home as it was National Lasagna Day.

The oil for the bread is amazing!!! I love it! And our server was very good as well. I also loved that you took reservations.

It was very quiet in the restaurant and there were not a lot of customers but the service was extremely slow. I’m not sure what all our waitress had as her responsibilities but at one point one of my friends actually got up and filled her own water glass. We were there for a shower and they did put us in a corner that gave us a little extra space which was very appreciated. The food was very good once we got it.

I had Pasta Yandolino on angel hair. It is not on the menu - but it is a Bravo staple, and it is fabulous. Plus the bread and flavored oil is excellent.

This was a great place to spend Father’s Day . Food was delicious and our waitress, Danielle took excellent care of .us. Each person ordered something different and all were very happy with Spaghetti Bolognese, spaghetti & meatballs, grilled shrimp scampi and Dad’s Veal Parmigiana, which was incredible - and a huge portion. Cocktails were also excellent .

It was over 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us at the table and offered to get drinks. It did get better once we were greeted but it was a significant amount of time.

We have dined here many times, but the new chef has added some excellent meals. The spaghetti bolognese and the spaghetti pesto were welcome additions and delicious. Be careful of the heavy garlic in the pesto sauce. I do wish they would serve some bread not laden with rosemary.

Potion sizes and recipe has changed since our last visit but price of the entries remained the same. The chicken was dry and chewy.

The menu was revised to include breakfast/brunch items, which is a welcome change back to as it was before. The service was a bit slow due to being Mother's Day, but we were seated immediately. Overall a good experience and we will come back again.

Extremely disappointed! This is the fourth year we have been to this location for Mother's Day. However, "corporate" decided no brunch on Saturday, the day before Mother's Day. Server was not at all helpful in recommending something for one person in our group who has a severe food allergy. Manager was somewhat better, but not much. We will not return to this location.

Was pleased with the visit, service was good, table of 6 and our waitress was very good. Food arrived much later than expected but was delicious. Was very disappointed with the amount of trash & litter in the area outside - was an amazing amount. This is a reflection on Bravo, sad to say!

We live very close but with the waitress we had, I would drive to the one that is further away. We did have a big group (13) however, the service in kitchen was slow (not her fault) but we waited over an hour for soup/salads with no apology. Waitress was very rude and had the tone of a server at a Dicks (that is not what I go to Bravo for). She brought me the wrong drink and then brough the correct one and kept asking which one did I want to keep (ok lady, I get it you are not going to leave the WRONG one that you brought and handed me but whatever, that was NO big deal to me..others in the group were appalled). I love Bravo food so will go again to a different one and/or make sure she is NOT the server.

The interior could really use a revamping. The ambiance is suffering because of the outdated decor. The service was just ok. Took a very long time to get drinks and food. We were pleasantly surprised by the food taste and quality, however.

Jack waited on us when we came in to celebrate my 60th birthday, he was outstanding, best service I've ever had ANYWHERE. Imagine how pleased I was when we had dinner here with some friends this past Saturday and Jack was our server again. He is JUST THE BEST!!!! Don't let him go!!!

We were there on a Saturday night with an unexpected snow storm. We were one of three tables with people and it took a long time to get our food which was interesting because several of us ordered the same menu item, so they only had to prepare three different items. The chicken marsala was dry and very salty. Some of the bread for the table was dried out. Overall, it was disappointing. Our waiter was very good - but we were his only table.
