My lobster ravioli was very good, I enjoyed it very much and only once had better. My guests chocked was over cooked and quite dry, but they gladly accommodated her request for some pesto to make it better. They offered to remake, but she chose not to accept.

Probably not. Menu was more limited than I remembered. Had to ask for water. The Chardonnay tasted like the Franzia boxed wine. Service was fine but not outstanding.

For a lunch stop great - for dinner no. We had multiple issues at our table. Lasagna - cold. Shrimp dish overly salty with woody asparagus. Their salads and apps - were the best of the day. Service was kind, and friendly. I usually do lunch here - and that is where they excel - its not a dinner destination in my book.

Not the greatest experience we've had there, the hostess seemed frazzled by the wheelchair bound member of our party, we were seated at an awkward table with chairs from the patio...on carpet...it didn't work well. We weren't given menus or told the specials. If this had been my first visit, I would not go back but I know they can do better.

The service was terrible. We were seated at 6:30 and did not get our food until after 8 PM. The waiter kept telling us our food would be right out but 15 minutes would pass. Then he would say it again and another 15 minutes would pass . We weren’t sure what the problem was as the restaurant didn’t appear to be super busy. They did bring several complementary desserts and apologize for the poor service. It was a disappointing experience. The consensus was the food was average. Bravo has always been much better with their food and service.

Compared to other area places to eat the cost is on the lower side. Delicious pasta dishes, meatballs were excellent. Rigatoni with a red pepper cream sauce was very tasty and the portion was large. Great house salad with a Parmesan dressing came in a chopped form. Very fresh. Waiter was a bit forgetful and apologized frequently. Did not seem focused and he didn’t have many tables. Dessert was decadent. Would absolutely return.

Food was excellent- the service was impeccable. My only complaint is I enjoy Parmesan cheese in my dipping oil for bread and we couldn’t snag The server to bring us some. Otherwise it was a great experience.

Service was outstanding. Lighting and noise level made for easy conversation. Food was excellent. The garden salad contained a great mix of greens, the dipping oil for the bread was awesome and my entree was so well prepared.

I eat healthy and normally prefer to eat at home but this was a great experience.

Pleasant enough Italian food destination. Menu isn't terribly broad but contains all the mandatory fare. Pastas, pizza, Parms, salads. Service staff are pleasant enough. We weren't rushed, nor were we ignored. Cost was not over the top so value for money I'd say was good. Casual attire was typical, but restaurant had a slight upscale feel. Located as an outside access venue at Brookfield square. South of Borders. In the area where the Sears used to be, I imagine. We'll go back. Good family venue. Parkingis ample, being Brookfield Square, but it may not be terribly close. They appear to have a sizable outside dining setup although it wasn't warm enough during our visit to have it open.

I had a reservation for three people and we were seated right away at a nice booth near the front. Excellent, personable waiter who made things right when one order didn’t come out as expected. Caesar salad was great... so was the shrimp & lobster ravioli! I would order both again!

We've been here a number of times over the years, and all I can say is that's it's just in decline. If you're looking for middle of the road food, it's your place, but nothing fantastic. More than one menu was torn almost in half, the steak was so-so, potatoes gummy, over priced drinks for nothing special, and tiramisu definitely had the beginnings of a sour taste. There are way many choices in the area that we will go to before coming back here. So disappointed, esp that we were celebrating my sons 18th birthday. Years ago, they gave you a beautiful dessert with "happy birthday" written on the rim of the plate in chocolate, now a scoop of ice cream, ugh....if I only had known :(

In the past, I have enjoyed the food more at Bravo. The portions are getting smaller, and the protein portion of the pastas are pretty slim. I ordered the Pasta Whoozy with chicken and spinach. My dish was fairly dry and had to request some additional sauce for it. The bread, which is usually a draw with the olive oil was just okay. I will probably go back, but it's not as good as previous years.

Please bring back your old chef. This place used to be great and we ate there weekly. Now whenever we do eat there, I come away disappointed. Yesterday we were there to celebrate my daughters birthday. The server was outstanding. Very friendly and cheery. The food not so good. Had the Pasta Woozie and there was so little sauce on it that it was extremely dry. Supposed to have chicken in it. Three tiny pieces. I brought it home and asked for a little side of sauce. The server accommodated this and brought it home to add sauce to it to at least make it palatable.
