Expected a lot out of the place but it fell short by a lot.
First of all, I made reservation and marked that it’s a birthday occasion. The person seating us wished my fiancé but our server was in too much hurry all the time and never cared to wish or even ask twice for orders or how the food was. The restaurant at that time had just 2-3 tables occupied so it wasn’t that she was busy. It was just that she didn’t seem interested to care.
Order chicken Marsala with high hopes but it was worse than even some 3 star rating restaurants. To top that, there was a bone in the chicken in the dish which was supposed to be boneless. Not going there again.

Dirty silverware and a new waiter but Bravo did an outstanding job with what appeared to be a "short staff". We still enjoyed our meal and will be back. We have been to this restaurant many times and we enjoy the menu and service.

When I made reservations on Open Table I announced we were out on our anniversary. No mention of it from the greeter nor waiter. Waiter did oblige me when I asked for a picture of us.

Things have gotten definitely not better since Covid. Service is extremely slow, perhaps due to staffing shortages. There is not even anyone upfront to see you when you come in. Someone came in from the kitchen to get us seated. It took about 10 to 15 minutes before anyone came to the table. After the order was placed, the lunch was brought to the table relatively quickly, in about 15 minutes or so. The soup was lukewarm and the rest of the entrées were OK. The restaurant was about quarter full. Cannot imagine how long the wait would be if it was close to being full.

Overall, an OK place for lunch, especially during Covid times. Just I just your expectations and you’ll be all right.

I have been here before and have never been particularly blown away and unfortunately this will likely be my last time giving this restaurant a shot. Firstly, we were sat outside even though it was quite windy. No big deal, I thought, but the waitress didn’t offer to move us inside and the outside heatlamps were not working. The food was good but again the waitress never asked if we wanted more drinks unfortunately but kept pushing us to order entrees even though it was the middle of happy hour and we were mainly there for drinks! Lastly to top it all off the waitress overcharged us for the clearly priced happy hour food. I’m not sure if she was new or just having a bad day but the service was far and away the worst I’ve ever had.

First time to eat at Bravo. Great location in Va Beach Town Center and nice restaurant attire and the staff is very responsive and professional, but it is a chain and your are getting franchise food. Great for a family outing and a quick dinner/lunch and go; a step above Olive Garden and equivalent to Macaroni Grill and Carabaos. If you want a better Italian Diner then go to "Manineos" or "When in Rome" for the same cost.

They were out of the Sausage Tortellini and didn't really like the limited Fast Prep foot choices, just had a appetizer and good glass of wine. Spouse had the same.

Good restaurant, but be prepared for what it is, a "plate and heat" food chain and you are out in 40 minutes.

Calamari was great, a light batter over tender pieces of squid; also the sauce aioli was a real complement for the squid. Also, the fra diavolo had just the right amount of heat to make this dish interesting without its leaving a burning sensation.

Service was generally very attentive. We would definitely return.

I have to say I was disappointed. I have dined there, previously, and had a wonderful experience. I had my parents visiting for the first time from Michigan and my sister and her boyfriend visiting as well. Previously, Lee Begay was a our server, and on that night, both the food and the service were outstanding! However, the food and the service (Catalina was our server) were truly disappointing.
#1 we weren't given menus by the host who sat us, and server greeting was delayed.
#2 My Chicken Caprese was tough and leathery, my sister ordered a salmon salad that was truly more of an entree rather than a salad Other entrees, based on my guest's feedback was "so-so"
#3 No water glasses refilled during our dinner, and then AFTER bringing the bill, she brought us a round of fresh water glasses. :( :(

I will likely delay a return there in the near future, and explore other Italian restaurants. And I would certainly hold off on bringing guests in the near future.
