Good meal and service but always too loud. Servers crashing down plates to stack them by our table.

While the Italian food may be great, we love the steaks at Bravo. We both had the filet and they were delicious and cooked to order. The chicken with polenta appetizer was good it wasn't great. We had to remind the server that my spouse's drink order had not arrived which was disconcerting. Our chocolate cake and vanilla bean gelato was excellent. Great meal; service not so great.

Because we have a glaring lack of choice for authentic Italian food in my area, I am always on the look out for it when I travel. I found BRAVO Cucina Italiana less than a mile from my hotel. The food is indeed authentic Italian and the prices a quite reasonable. The layout of the restaurant is exactly as you would imagine for a family style place. While many were dining on a Monday evening, my wife and I were able to easily converse during our meal.

Overall enough food for value and was good. Did not like fried zucchini served in slivers. All you could taste was the batter not the vegetable. Seems different from when we went six months ago. Light menu was limited and seemed more Olive Garden except everything was al la carte. At the least, up the price of the main course and include a vegetable. Sides were scattered around menu and some not listed. It was like a puzzle. Waiter, Dimitri, was very good, timely with everything, checked in, very pleasant and helpful.

Bravo has really gone down hill. The food was average, the menu was lame. I had a hard time finding something to order. Our server Lance was the only bright spot.

We had a wonderful time for my sons birthday dinner. The food was delicious. I love the wedding soup. My sons had pasta bravo and pork chops. The manager is always very welcoming. I’ve been coming here for years.

The service was excellent as was the food. Overall a great experience that more than met expectations and far surpassed the bad experience I had at the waterfront recently.

Our dinner with two other couples was an absolute delight in every way! We would highly recommend the Insalata Salad with Creamy Parmesan dressing, the Chicken Meatball and Polenta Starter, the Grilled Salmon with Vegetables, and the Tiramisu !

We got wine at the bar and was going to the hostess station to be seated. A passing waitress knocked into my wife and gave a cursory apology and handed her a towel and walked away. The bartender saw what happened and immediately provided a wet towel with soap and a glass of seltzer. Then offered to get the manager. She was very helpful. The service was very agood even though there were 10 in our party. the food was liked by everyone but me as the breading in my eggplant part was very salty. The pasta with it was good.

We had dinner with our Italian family at Bravo for the first time on Christmas Eve for the reason that some family members have passed and the rest of us are not able to cook as we have done so in the past. As we get older, it becomes all the more important to be able to have dinner with family on a night like Christmas Eve. We are, therefore, graciously grateful to have a place to go that provides such elegance, top quality, freshly prepare pasta and dishes and a nice collection of quality wines to enjoy on Christmas Eve. The staff is professional, exceptional, accommodating, thoughtful, courteous, helpful, attentive, respectful, gracious, kind, and caring. Food was superb. Bravo must have an exceptional Chef, Sous Chef and good service staff. We are so thankful to Bravo, the maître d’ who was so understanding of our situation, the Waiter who exercised a lot of patience with us and the other Service Staff who was equally kind and considerate. All the best to the staff at Bravo. We hope each is able to spend Christmas with family as we did on Christmas Eve.

For the price of the pasta they only give you 1/2 cup for 17.00. Hmm

We had a wonderful time, the table wasn't the greatest, the air from outside was freezing and every time someone came in we felt it. Probably would have preferred a table since it was a work function luncheon instead of a booth with mostly men. Next time I will make sure I mention it on our reservations. the server was amazing, and so was the food. thank you.

I gave my experience a 3 star because we had a reservation for 6:00 p.m. but were not seated for 20 minutes. People walking in without reservations were seated at the same time. What is the point in taking reservations then? We had an excellent waitress though. We give her a 5 star!!!

we had reservations for 6pm and arrived around ten to six. our wait time ran a few minutes later getting seated around 6:10. The staff was excellent and the noise was average. I was disappointed in the serving portions, as they seam to be one the light side. Perhaps it is just me comparing Bravos to other Italian restaurants. Overall, I would dine they again.

As our evening began, shortly after we were seated, there seemed to be a group of friends that wanted to be seated together and they added tables right near our table of 8 to squeeze them in. I could not even go to the ladies room because one of the gentlemen at the other table was right up against the back of my chair. I was on the end of the table and felt very crowded. It was a large group, and they were speaking and toasting VERY LOUD making our dining experience less pleasurable. We could not even hear each others conversations. For a Tuesday evening I was surprised how busy the restaurant was and it was more noisy overall than I have ever experienced at Bravo. Had a manager come over, I would definitely had made my feelings known, but no one checked on us to ask if everything was ok. Other than our server that is and we did not complain to her. Our meals and server were awesome though.

Danielle, our server, did a very good job...especially when we asked for separate checks for a group of six.
She always had a smile and checked back with us numerous times. We all liked our meals, salads, and specialty drinks. Great “ go to” place where somebody can always find something to satisfy their taste.

This restaurant does not honor reservations and sits walk-in before reservations.
