    Our server was wonderful! We were told the restaurant was short staffed as more wait staff was coming in for the dinner seating. She waited on us with a smile, was attentive as she could be trying to wait on several other tables (including a large group). The food was excellent and prepared as I asked. Great dining experience!

    Everything was good, except for the service because my reservation It wasn’t in their system, I had to tell about my Daugher’s birthday, but no matter what they didn’t put attention and the waiter brought the ice cream without candle, later she brought a candle, it was ok.

    The whole experience was horrible. We were seated on the far side of the restaurant by a black curtain where the staff played drums on bus bins behind it most of the time. From that point everything went progressively down hill. We had tea and asked for lemon. We got warm tea, hardly any ice and no lemon. When we asked for the lemon we were given a look of annoyance from the waitress. This look continued through the night, accompanied by comments at times, the few times we saw her. When we first arrived there was one other table beside us in her section. They left after about 10 minutes after we got there. Once they left the table sat there with dirty dishes for at least 15 minutes. Someone else brought us our salads (which were good). After our salads were done I ended up putting them on the dirty table beside us. That’s because we had been finished for almost 10 minutes and our waitress was hanging out by the kitchen talking. This is where she spent majority of her time while we were there. The times we got refills she would bring out a pitcher of tea (no ice of course). This involved spilling a good amount of tea in front of my wife on the table and acting like nothing happened. She would also not come back to finish filling up drinks if she ran out of tea in the pitcher. Anytime we asked for anything we were greeted by silence and a look of disbelief. After salads we waited more than 20 minutes for the meals. At the very best they were almost warm. The sauce in my fettuccini had obviously been sitting for awhile because it was the opposite of creamy. I did ask for parm. It was shoved between my face and the plate rudily when I was about to try the food. We ate the food because we were afraid to send it back. We also just wanted to get out of there. The manager never came by to see how we were doing either. I usually tip at least 20%(I waited tables for 9 years - it isnt easy) but it was hard to tip more than 10%.

    When I made the reservation I put on there it was for a birthday. The girl who sat up ask who's birthday but the waiter never mentioned it. So it was extremely disappointing. The waiter we had was not around. Never had refills. The shrimp appetizer we had was rubber and over cooked. Probably will be a while before we come back.

    The food was not good. Calamari was tough, and the pasta was undercooked. Went for brunch, ordered a Bloody Mary and it was pretty much a V8. No garnishes or anything. For the price of food and beverage, definitely would expect higher quality than we received. Positive side—Our waitress was amazing and very attentive.

    Inattentive wait staff even though the restaurant wasn’t busy. Soup and Pasta Woozy entree salty, salty plus. Side Caesar salad delicious, but when we got the bill, the salad was $1 more than in the menu, pointed that out to wait staff and her response was, “yes, the salad is more expensive as we don’t have new menus printed yet” and she didn’t correct the price. We’d looked forward to going to this restaurant after moving to Greensboro 2 years ago. We won’t go back.

    Christmas lunch out was supposed to be special. That's why I chose Bravo Italian Kitchen. My wife and I both ordered the Chicken Marsala. The last time I had that particular dish was in a small Italian eatery in upstate New York. The chicken breast was delicately tenderized and lightly breaded. The Marsala sauce was thick and rich with marsala flavor. Not here in Greensboro and not today. The chicken was un-tenderized, not breaded, and over-peppered to the point of being ridiculous. The sauce was watery with only a hint of Marsala. The green beans were practically raw, and the mashed potatoes were only warm, unseasoned, and flavorless. Not even a hint of salt. Zero garlic. Imagine an Italian restaurant seemingly unfamiliar with garlic in mashed potatoes. And a special note to all restaurateurs and chefs alike. You really shouldn't have to be told this, but please take the butter out of the freezer or refrigerator and allow it to get to room temperature before people start dining. Nobody wants refrigerated butter to cool down their hot rolls, mashed potatoes, or any other dish served hot. On a positive note, our waiter Allan was a prince and treated us with kindness and grace. He was attentive and eager to please. Too bad our chef was not.

    Food was OK, ambience was good, but the service was terrible. Food took far too long to come out on a night that wasn't very busy, and the cooks and servers were arguing on several occasions so that most everyone could hear them. Overall, it was like a bad Olive Garden.

    The server was great and the food was good, but it took f o t e v e r to get out food. We were told there was a breakdown in the kitchen and our order wasn't printed and had to be re-enteted. It took over an hour to receive our meals for four people. We were celebrating a birthday and then there was no torch in the kitchen to make creme brulee... This is not the way things usually go at Bravo. Our friends who were there for the first time likely will not return because of the delays.

    I realize the place was very busy at 12:30. However, the soup was lukewarm. I had lasagne which was only warm on the outside and not the middle. Another guest at my table had lukewarm soup and a fra dialblo and that too was lukewarm. Our waitress Dana was running all over the place so we couldn’t tell her but she was good

    Unbelievably bad service! In my OpenTable reservation, I specifically stated “please put us with a lead or training server” because we’ve had issues in the past. Well the hostess didn’t even read it because he was gone from the front podium for 15 minutes when we first walked in. People behind us even left over this! My husband and I are in the industry, we actually used to be managers at Bravo many years ago (in a different city) and we were appalled by the service from our server, hostess, and manager on duty. I’m not going to waste my time itemizing the facts here of what happened because it doesn’t seem like any managers care. If someone is curious about what happened, please feel free to reach out to me… other than that, we will never be returning to this location, which is sad because we love the food.

    We had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner experience. I chose Braco because our family includes non-meat eaters. I do wish the limited menu included more of the normal meatless and seafood options. We had excellent service though.
