The food was delicious. Lots of clean plates at our table! Our server was cheerful and helpful when we couldn't decide on our entrees. We were there for a birthday dinner and the restaurant was very accommodating to seat us all together.

Recently recovered from COVID-19, we wanted a night out of the kitchen. The restaurant was lively and the entrees were tasty. Caesar salad was amazing! Wine list wasn’t 100%, but still had decent options. Took home bonus entrees. Such a delightful meal!

COVID - I think you should not go here. The service was not so good. I let the manager know nicely - He said "we have people out that have been affected with Covid which has made us really understaffed" - I said aren't you supposed to close, and he said they can't. We waited 20 mins to get drinks and I needed another fork, and our food was cold by the time we got it. Dishes were left on tables all around us along with our dishes. I still paid and tipped 20% - It was a stretch for me to even go out to eat and then I was told this - it was an awful experience. Sorry to say, but I wouldn't recommend it right now.

Celebrated a birthday. Management was excellent and great adhering to guidelines. Food and beverages were also above average. The cost was a real deal because of the online coupon.
Service was not great but not bad. This was our server’s first shift in 4 weeks so she was not at the top of her game. We were a party of 10 at separate tables plus she was serving two other tables.

Food and service, as always, very good. Even the coffee was good and served in a decent cup...not too large or small and not one of those thick rimmed mugs...a nice cup! Sure makes a cuppa more enjoyable.
However, it gets noisy quickly. We were in for lunch and there were still open tables but I had trouble hearing my dining companions unless they almost yelled and, obviously, that just contributes to the noise problem.

I enjoy every minute of my experience last night, my friend and I experience a long work week. And it was just nice to get out and enjoy each other’s company with pizza, a white peach sangria, and good conversation. And I had an espresso martini that hit the spot for me. So when you have all those things compiled together they create a perfect ending to a work week.

While my dinner was tasty I sent it back to be warmed up. Pasta was overcooked (before I sent it back) and the noodles came out like a lump all stuck together. Good thing the staff was friendly and efficient. I would recommend this place, with a caution attached.

We chose BRAVO Cucina in part because it is on Open Table and got over 500 pretty great reviews.
OMFG! This was barely a step above Olive Garden. Our server was sweet as sweet tea but pretty much ignored us unless we flagged her down. No water, no dessert menu.
The food was mediocre at best - I had Veal Parmesan which was served with a tasteless tomato sauce and cold sphagetti "pomodoro" - if you can call charred tomatoes and a few wisps of green shaving in Chef Boy Ar Dee sauce - pomodoro.
My wife had Chicken Cacciatorre which was better but still not great.
Sorry Tennessee but y'all need to eat real Italian in NYC or Chicago and see what real Italian tastes like before you rave about the "great" EYETalian" food at this place.

A large group preceded us, so the service team was very busy. We had to wait at the bar for about 15 min past our reservation time until our table freed up. We waited at the bar where service was slow.
Once we got to our table, service was great. After we placed our order, they learned that one of the appetizers had run out, so the manager gave us another one on the house! All our items were well prepared.

My wife and I live in Franklin, TN and came to Knoxville and came to your place. Food was great. Server Zach brought energy and enthusiasm which made for a great experience.

We definitely would visit again but found the noise level a bit higher than we would like and the tables could be spaced a bit further apart so not to seem so cramped.

Just some thoughts but the highlight was great food and great service.

Thank you,

We reserved a table for two on Valentine’s Day night at 8:00pm . Crowds were tremendous but we still were seated around 8:05 and received food very quickly and and the quality of service was great. The building was decorated beautifully and the setting was very romantic. Based on the one experience I would highly recommend this place.
