Great dinner. The restaurant did not have many diners when we were there. The service was great excellent and the food was delicious. Huge portions so we each took half our dinner home. The restaurant also gave us a free take home meal with each entree!

Very good service. Nice ambiance for conversation. Salad was good; pasta woozie was fair, at best - sauce was way too thick and not enough to even coat the pasta. Disappointing.

Bravo is doing everything to make diners feel safe. I had the salmon, perfectly cooked. other diner had the roasted vegetable salad with chicken-also excellent. Our favorite dish on the menu is the Bolognese. Hard to go and not have that every time it is that good. We went on Wednesday $5 martini night. Cosmos were spot on. Service is always top. The night we went you got to choose another entre' to take home if your meal was a certain amount and yes we both chose the Bolognese. It was excellent the next day. Pasta suberb.

The service wslow, it was obvious our waiter was not happy to be there. Some of the food was good, the lasagna tasted like it came from a box meal and the steak was ordered as medium well and was served charred and overdone. We requested steak sauce to make the steak edible but it was not delivered.

It was nice to sit outside, but strange to have tables and chairs stacked up in this COVID-19 nonsense. While service was slow, I know it’s because of the reduced kitchen staff...it actually created a really relaxed atmosphere and enjoyable meal. Food was great and our server did all he could.

Very nice meal at Bravos. Party had spaghetti, lasagna, eggplant parmesan and chicken diavolo. All very tasty. And include a chopped salad and lobster bisque and WOW!

Had to set inside, too windy outside for the ladies!

Marsala was burned with no sauce. Took 10 minutes to get sauce, chicken cold. Server did his best but he was also manning the bar, short servers. Manager to busy to approach table and apologize for burned food. Price is reasonable, but not for poorly cooked meal.

Bravo was absolutely magnificent!!!! We will be going there again...hopefully soon!!! Food was outstanding, my husband’s New York strip steak was one of the best ones we’ve ever had, and we’ve had mini! I had shrimp, and the flavors we’re perfect… Not too spicy, not too bland. The food was excellent, and the service was even better!! Sever was attentive, helpful, and delightful. Prices were excellent… I think it’s one of the best values for quality of meal and service in the state of Ohio!

Been a bravo Customer for years and I know with everything that's going on today it's been hard on the restaurant business but I have to say the food was awful The eggplant was so overcooked and greasey and the pasta had no taste. Our service was great but not the food. I dont know when I will come back if ever

We've been enjoying this location for years and years. The location is fantastic for us. While ownership has changed, or seems like it has, the quality has varied a little. I appreciated getting the more exotic-sounding, Italian pop music back on...the adult contemporary US music just did not fit the atmosphere. Our first batch of bread was pretty tough...felt a bit stale, but the second batch was perfect. Ensalada de la Casa is consistently good, as is the Pasta Bravo. Our wait staff was fantastic...she stayed ahead of us throughout all of lunch. The restaurant is showing its age with some rickety chairs, tired decor, worn carpet and tired exterior.
