    We ran 15 minutes late so our table( a booth that I requested when I made the reservation) was given away right before we arrived so that was very disappointing as I have a handicapped mother in law that the booths are more comfortable for her. Service was awesome! Allie was great! Food was good and hot. Noise level was high as we sat right next to the food window of the kitchen.
    Bravo Italian Kitchen - LouisvilleResponded 2 days ago
    Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for not having your requested booth available, especially considering your mother-in-law's needs. We're glad to hear that Allie provided great service and that you enjoyed the food. We understand that the noise level near the kitchen was an issue and appreciate your patience. We'll work on improving our seating arrangements. We hope to serve you again and provide a more comfortable experience. Thank you!

    We had an excellent time as we were there to celebrate my daughter’s high school graduation with out of town guest. I eat here often with my family so the food and price has always been excellent. The thing that stood out the most about this visit was the young man who was serving our large group and was able to, accommodate everyone without a pause in his performance.

    I've been a patron of this restaurant for well over a decade.. Last night a date and I ordered pasta dishes and requested to substitute proteins. The check came out and I was astonished to find that not only did I pay for the protein that was on the menu but had to pay an extra 9 dollars for an additional protein. When I asked about it the manager informed me that they don't have a way to substitute proteins on the menu so you my pay as an added protein. So I paid almost $20 extra because we elected to have grilled chicken and shrimp as out protein versus what was on the menu. It is even worse because I paid for chicken I didn't get to have to pay an additional 9 dollars for another order of chicken. It's absurd.
    Bravo Italian Kitchen - LouisvilleResponded 2 days ago
    Thank you for your loyalty over the years and for sharing your recent experience with us. We're sincerely sorry for the misunderstanding and frustration regarding the protein substitution on your pasta dishes. It's concerning to hear that you were charged for both the original and substituted proteins, resulting in an unexpected extra cost. If you would be willing to further discuss your experience with our senior management, please contact us to provide your name, phone number and include the details of your experience. Upon receipt of your information, a member of our team will reach out to you directly.

    It’s Saturday after 7pm. Started off a bit slow. No one greeted us. We waited at the host desk for 10 minutes. Once seated at our table. We waited another 10 minutes for our waiter. The manager realized the situation and got everything rolling for our dinner. It was smooth sailing after that. Food was delicious and our server was lovely. We will be back. 8/10.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our celebration meal at Bravo Italian Kitchen. Service was top notch - attentive but not overly. Our dishes, Mediterranean Vegetable Salad, and Chicken Parmesan were wonderful. We highly recommend this restaurant in Louisville, KY We celebrated along with prom couples, dads & daughters outing and a couple's engagement. A real happening place.

    Absolutely horrific experience on Mother’s Day. Arrived for reservation and stood there for ten mins while the party in front of us argued over their missing reservation. Should have taken that as a sign and left then. Was finally seated. Waited 15 mins and still no server to greet us or take our drink order. I look over and see three of them arguing not wanting to take our table because it “wasn’t their section”. I went to the front to find a manager. Manager found us a server who was supposedly “the best”. They did bring us an appetizer for free and comped three soft drinks. When she mentioned to us that she had talked with the staff about the arguing, the new server’s response, in front of us, was “was it really that bad?” Yes, sir, it was. He wasn’t any better. Service was slow. Refills were slow. Getting boxes after dinner took forever and then when we asked for the check he immediately wanted to take our payment without giving us time to review the bill so “he didn’t have to circle back”. Boy, I hate to inconvenience him doing his job. This was my Mother’s Day and birthday dinner so needless to say, horrible experience all around despite kind efforts to make the experience better. AVOID THIS PLACE if you are looking for an enjoyable meal and experience.

    Today we went to Bravo’s Italian Kitchen on Bullitt Lane. I had received a special offering from Bravo’s EClub to Save $20 if I spent $40. It was a great day to go. We go about 1 time a month so we sorta have our own table. Shelby was the hostess and said she would also be our server. We told her what we wanted to drink and in a few minutes was back with our iced teas and bread. She was ready to take our orders. I had decided to have Chicken Parmesan and my husband chose Spaghetti and Meatballs. We didn’t have to wait very long until Shelby returned with 2 of the biggest platters I’ve ever seen. My Chicken Parmesan had 2 large chicken cutlets on top of a great big heaping of spaghetti. The Spaghetti and Meatballs came with 3 fairly large meatballs and was covered with Marinara Sauce. They were steaming hot and so delicious!! I think several of the reasons that we love Bravo’s is that the decor of the restaurant is just so beautiful and the servers works really hard making sure that the patrons are happy and full! The staff have really great personalities and they have several managers that work really hard for their staff and patrons. Their cooking staff work really hard at getting the entrees out in a timely manner. I want to thank Hannah, their manager for remembering us, treating us like good friends and working hard to keep Bravo’s a Top Notch Restaurant!!

    Food and service were excellent. Restaurant was a little noisy due to a good crowd, but was acceptable. This restaurant is always a nice place for a good dinner and a nice time.

    I realize, this is the way it is on a Saturday night, but we had a reservation for 7 PM, and arrived at 6:45. We waited over an hour to be seated, but the place was busy. That was a little discouraging and we discussed bailing and going elsewhere. Once seated, service was prompt and attentive. We had plenty of time before hand to know what we were going to order, so once the server arrived, we were set and placed out order. The appetizer of the tomato caprese, delicious, and the pasta, very good, with large portions.

    So glad we had a reservation! Bravos was busy with customers. We were seated quickly but waited another 15-20 minutes to be acknowledged by our server. From start to finish it took 2.5 hours to get our salad and pasta. Service was frantic and exhausted rather than friendly. Food was lackluster.

    We had a great time. The line to get in was out the door at 6 PM. Thankfully we had reservations and we had time to have a drink in the bar. Our table was ready on time and we had a delicious meal and our waitress Hannah, was very nice and attentive. We were there 4 hrs and truly enjoyed it! One of our favorite places, but always make a reservation!

    They were short-staffed and poorly managed. We arrived for our 8:15 reservation around 8:00 and there was a line out the door, and everyone had reservations. There was only one host on duty seating customers, helping with delivery orders, and helping clean tables. We finally got to the host stand to check in at 8:17, when the host apologized and asked if we minded her using the restroom before seating us because she hadn’t had a chance in over 4 hours, which we were obviously fine with. I’m pretty sure labor violations were happening. The host was wonderful though despite how much she was being overworked/abused. We were sat by 8:25 without napkins and silverware, but our server Zachary was prompt and amazing, even though he was obviously worn out from the shift. Once utensils were available, he delivered them. The table we were given was in the pathway to the front door and right next to the kitchen, which was a way too busy and noisy area to seat customers. The front-of-house manager was not walking the floor, as he was fully engaged in fulfilling delivery orders (which should not be accepted on one of the two most busy days of the year for restaurants), so the dining room wasn’t being properly managed at all. We ordered drinks, a salad, and our entrees. The drinks and salad arrived within a reasonable time and were tasty, but the entrees never came. Zachary apologized throughout our wait and attended to us the best he could without us having any food yet. At 9:35, we had enough and so we stood up, asked for the check for the drinks, and informed Zachary that we were leaving. He apologized profusely. At that point the front of house manager finally came off the service line to talk with us and apologized, but then blamed the kitchen. Magically at that point our food came up and they boxed it to go. When we got home the food was cold, my medium-rare steak was well-done, and the potatoes were not seasoned. The pasta was disappointing. We used to love this place.

    Comida muy rica, atención del personal muy atentos y el lugar bonito con ambiente agradable. Celebramos Valentine´s y había mucha gente por lo que tardó en salir la comida pero en general valor-precio es una buena opción para el antojo de comida Italiana.

    Overall was a good experience. What I didn’t like was waiting in a line out the door to be seated for my 7:30 reservation. You had one girl sitting people and it took forever.

    We went Valentine’s Day and they were really doing their best, but our wait staff did say they had worked their too long to enjoy the food, which was really off putting. I also was bullied by a man waiting in line who claimed I “cut him in line” because there was only one host for the very busy restaurant and the line was out the door. The food was good!

    I chose to take my wife here on Valentine’s Day (it had been several years since our last visit as we like to try different restaurants). We expected a much longer wait for our food (it was extremely busy as expected), but they were quicker than expected. The only thing I would like to see differently in Bravo’s is a wall constructed between the bar and the main dining area. Some folks at the bar seemed to get a pretty loud, as often is the case (and we were seated quite a distance across the room from the bar area). Our server (Chloe) was incredible in every way! One of the better service experiences my wife and I have had in quite some time (if not, ever). She was extremely attentive without being overly intrusive. She kept us abreast of the timing of our meal, made recommendations on food (based on her experience in waiting on other customers) and was a pure delight in every way! The food was great (my wife had the Grilled Salmon Fresca and I had the Lobster & Shrimp Fettuccine). We both had a Caesar salad (which was huge, btw) and for dessert was one of the best we’ve ever tasted…Caramel Mascarpone Cheesecake-absolutely incredible)! It was an overall, great experience but I can’t stress enough how impressed we were with our Server, Chloe and the impact she made on our special night! Unfortunately, customer service has taken a plunge downward since the Pandemic, but this was clearly the exception! Keep up the great work…Kudos!
