We were so disappointed with the food - the shrimp Alfredo was too rich and the shrimp wasn’t good. The calamari was like a fried order of something from Rally’s. This was one of our favorite restaurants but probably won’t go back.

Despite having a reservation, we waited in line for ten minutes just to approach the check in desk. Lots of waiting involved. The restaurant was very busy, and the food came out quickly, but the service wasn’t as fast as it has been in the past.

The service was a little slow but the waitress was nice. My pasta was cold and the sauce was warm. One person at the table had the salmon salad and the salmon was not done. Another person had pizza and it was good.

It took 40 minutes to get a glass of wine...not enough help at the bar...just 1 bartender for the entire restaurant. Our waiter was a bit slow, but we think he was new. The food was good, so we were happy about this aspect.

There was no one at the front desk when my husband and I arrived. We stood there for over 5 minutes waiting. The phone was ringing off the hook and we were about to leave when the hostess finally came. The entres were good, but my husband's dessert was terrible. It was cold, dry, and tasteless. The baking paper was still stuck to the bottom as well. The waitress never asked about the uneaten dessert. We were not impressed, especially for the price.

Have always had good service in the past but had to wait a long time to get waited on. My grandson even went to the kitchen to see if someone would help us and still had to wait. Didn’t do a great job of servicing us throughout the meal. But I’ll still dine there and hope it’s better next time.

We did not have the best experience. We were a party of 8 and got horrible service. We constantly had empty drink glasses. The salads took over 30 minutes to come out......and our dinner was an even longer wait. We would go 15 minutes at a time without seeing our waitress which I find very unacceptable. The food was the only saving grace of the evening.

We go to Bravo regularly. They had changed one of our favorite dishes, the grilled salmon, to reduce calories and the changed version was not nearly as good as the previous one. By ordering a balsamic glaze with it, the dish is now once again excellent. Service on 7-5-19 was excellent and the noise level was minimal. Excellent dining experience.

We had terrible service! It felt race was a major part! We were ignored by the server, had to flag her down by a nearby table. We requested things and it took 20 mins to receive. We were never offered bread or any other amenities. Definitely a terrible experience!

They were WAY short on wait staff and when we ordered a Gin and tonic we were told after 15 minutes that they had no tonic. How is that possible? They crowded everyone in the place in one section and it was extremely loud! We have been a few times in the past and enjoyed the whole experience but this time was very subpar.

As always the food was fantastic. I was pretty disappointed with the service this time as the waiter mentioned to me “they were not aware they would be this busy on Father’s Day.” Waiter only came to bring food and the check. No refills or checking on other needs. Will give another chance because the food and atmosphere were great but very surprising they were not staffed up for a holiday.

Food was fantastic. Went on Father's Day and it was busy. Our server was rushing and seemed a little stressed and wasn't as attentive in the beginning. He forgot to place our order for our entrees, but luckily the manager noticed and came over to apologize and removed our appetizer off of our ticket. We will definitely visit again.

Service was awful, food was mediocre, we will not be going back. Ordered a glass of wine (Valpolicella - off their "recommended pairings" section), waiter came back 10 minutes later to tell me they were all out of it. Changed to another off the recommended pairings list (Sangiovese), another 5-10 minutes, and the waiter came back with the menu to ask me to show on the list which it was. Another 10 minutes, and turns out they were out of that too. Finally ordered Chianti... By the time it came, we were almost done eating. Considering it was still early on a Friday evening, being out of anything on the menu is unacceptable. My mom ordered coffee and asked for cream, and they gave her skin milk instead. (I don't know if that was all they had, but why would you give skim milk when someone orders cream for coffee?) The food was OK. Nothing memorable, but it was passable. Expensive, considering it's about $5 extra if you want a salad with your entree. The bread tasted like it would have been good fresh, but I have a hard time believing it was baked fresh that day. I ordered the Pesto Spaghetti, and asked for a scoop of meat sauce over the top (if you've never tried this, you should - just not here), but instead, it just had a little bit of sauteed hamburger crumble over the top. The Pesto was fairly good, but I've had lots better. Mom had the "Pasta Woozy" - fettuccini Alfredo with chicken & spinach, which was dry and bland. Dad had the meatballs, and they were pretty good. Overall, though, a very poor experience, one we won't repeat.

Bravo is our favorite place for special family celebrations. My husband and I also enjoy quiet dinners there when we get the chance. The staff, service and food are always on point. Bravo Cucina Italian is definitely one of our favorite places in Little Rock!

We on time for our reservations on mother’s day. We were sitted and we weren’t greeted for 20 minutes while waiters continuously walked pass us. Once we did get menu we felt rushed to order and the food was cold and after we weren’t offered a dessert menu just a check. Hopefully the next visit will be better......Hopefully.

The food was great. The service is not what I’ve gotten in the past and expected from Bravo. The waiter seemed scattered. One persons food came out on its own 15 minutes before the rest of our food. One of the orders was wrong and we had to wait another 15 minutes before she got her food. We were not offered any fresh Parmesan with our meal.

Bravo has been one of my favorite places to eat Italian food. My wife chose it for her mother’s day meal to eat because it’s alway a great place to eat. It has been a while since we have eaten at bravo. So we didn’t know they had changed the menu which was a bummer.
The service was awful. We had to ask for the bread anytime we received any. Our drinks were empty a lot. The (I believe) manager got our drinks twice because we caught her as she went by. She was happy to help.
I was really disappointed with the whole operation on this night. I actually felt bad for my wife because it was her mother’s day meal.
I hope this helps Bravo have a heads up on an honest review.
