Unfortunately, we were seated near the kitchen. It was quite noisy. Next time, I'll ask for our table to be moved.

It's a nice place, but the food is on par with Olive Garden and the prices are higher. We were disappointed the food wasn't more flavorful.

We had a party of 7, my husband and I decided to split the margherita pizza, everyone else food came out like 7 minutes before our pizza, the pizza tasted like eating cardboard, no flavor at all, I ate one piece and decided to instead eat the bread they brought to the table, but dont like the oil they give you to dip it in. Think the others in our party enjoyed their food.

We were a party of 12, when we entered the restaurant we could visible see that it was not busy. Waiter treated us as if had more important things to do. We were seated in a timely fashion but our food orders weren’t taken for another 20 to 30 minutes. I’m not sure why the waiter was so apprehensive about taking our orders but he kept saying I’ll take that in a few minutes let go do this or that.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here for Easter with a large family group of 13. Justin was our server and he did an outstanding job, he made several great recommendations to the table. All the food was prepared perfectly, piping hot and with great presentation. Make sure you save room for desserts because they have some awesome ones to try.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was a good date night for my husband and I. I had the lobster ravioli and he had spaghetti and meatballs. My food was delicious, but he said his had too many tomatoes (not the restaurant's fault he doesn't like them, though). The service was quick and friendly as well. My only complaint would be that it is a tad expensive and that there was a loud party seated next to us.

There was nice decorations on the walls and tables, but the service wasn’t so great. Our waitress wasn’t giving any type of customer service and all the other workers that we asked for help, just gave us attitudes. If we asked our waitress for help or an explanation of something, then she acted as if she didn’t care. The food wasn’t great at all and I even received dirty rolled up utensils. Old food and grease stuck to the forks.

Our waiter was bad. Had to call over the head waiter to bring our drinks which we had not received in 15 minutes. Never asked if we wanted another drink or dessert. Of course at the end he states it was his first day. Not sure I believe that. Probably won’t be back

I love Bravo Cucina for work lunches, because it's a quiet place to go (especially at noon-time) and the food and service are always reliable. I also love going with friends for dinner and drinks... and with my family for Sunday brunch. I guess I'm a fan.

I went for my Birthday and the food was excellent but my server was a disgrace. She didn't offer any bread when we first got there, she kept going to the back for a very long time and it wasn't busy at all. She didn't offer a drink that came with the kids meal. the service sucks

although I had made the reservation for 7, the table was set for 6. then instead of moving us to a table that seats 7, another setting was added to table that was too small. Eventually, we were seated at larger table. service and food were very good.

We came in for their Special Get a Free Shrimp Napoli with the purchase of a Grilled Salmon entree. We ordered the Shrimp Napoli, my wife ordered the Grilled Salmon and I ordered a Spaghetti (Capellini) well done with Red Sauce. The Shrimp came in short order and was good (and rich). We waited after the Shrimp was finished for about 15 to 20 minutes for the Entree's. When her Salmon came it was plentiful and delicious but my Capellini Spaghetti was sparse and only had square cut pieces of Tomatoes on the top and a lots of water almost floating the pasta. Not a Sauce that I have ever seen on Pasta. I was expecting something with a thick liquidized Tomato base on the Pasta. Very disappointed with my Entree but I did not complain.

Skip this place and go elsewhere. It tastes like broker food and not fresh, premise-prepared Italian.
