Dined for a date night program on our own. Food was amazing, wine was great, and food came quickly and often. Only complaint was that we had to wait a long time to be addressed by a host - nearly 15 minutes before ANY even addressed us (and we had a reservation). But we would definitely come back, loved every dish we ordered (had stuffed mushroom appetizer, mussels, gnocchi, chicken parm, and cheesecake) and the 8 dollar glass of wine was so good!

This was our first time there and we went because we were given a gift certificate. It was just the two of us and we were seated at a very small table. Tables were very close together so didn't feel like you had any privacy. We had 2 large menus, wine menu, and menu for specials plus 2 water glasses, bread, bread plates, and a plate of oil. We ordered 2 appetizers and the plates were so large there was not room for the items on our table. We spent the entire evening "shuffling" items on the table to make room. While the food was delicious, the lack of privacy and space will probably deter us from coming back.

Awful first time experience. The mozzarella sticks are the only thing that could redeem this place. I ordered the Capellini Pomodoro with their gluten free penne pasta (the only gluten free option). It was drowning in watery tomato juice for the sauce. My friend ordered the mozarella sticks (which she loved) and the spaghetti and meatballs (how do you screw that up?). But after her first and only bite, she was disgusted by the strong taste of metal and told the waiter she didn't like it and did not want the rest. Shortly after her plate was taken away, the manager approached our table and rudely told us he needed to use the second half of our table. He then proceeded to pick up our purses and things and move them himself without asking or apologizing. No one ever sat at that new table he set up next to us. While my friend didn't ask for her spaghetti and meatballs to be taken off of the check, it would have been considerate of the manager or the waiter to ask what they could do to improve our experience or just take the uneaten item off the check. But they didn't. I never leave reviews for restaurants. But this experience was just plain bad.

We had dinner with friends! Our table was ready upon arrival and our server was great. She clearly understood that we were in no rush and wanted to enjoy time with our friends. So, she paid attention to our drink and appetizer orders and gave us plenty of time to settle in before ordering dinner. The chicken parmesan was great with a crunch on the outside yet juicy on the inside. I'd definitely order it again!

This was my first visit to Bria Bistro. I was on a hunt for great eggplant parmesan and I found it. The eggplant was cut thick, paired with a good sized serving of mozzarella and light breading. I also thoroughly enjoyed the beet salad. My colleague enjoyed her chicken parmesan and beet salad.

Perhaps next time I will save room for dessert!

We usually love Bria. This past visit my pasta was Luke warm and our cinnamon apple desert was barely warm. We will try again. They need to concentrate on doing good Italian food and less of the weekend specialties that you can’t pronounce.

Never disappointed at this place. Worth the 30-minute drive. The papardelle dish with goat cheese is a great option for lactose-intolerant diners.

The food was great. Everything was home made and fresh .The service was great. However I felt it was overpriced $16 for spaghetti and meatballs SpaghettI is pretty inexpensive so 40 dollars for dinner we drank water 32 for 2 spaghetti and meatballs plus tax and tip pretty expensive portion size was good but I felt it was too expensive. I will tell people that it is good glad we got to try it out.

This was my third trip to Bria and the first for my three companions. The bar was a nice place to hang out before dinner. Seems like a lot of locals gather there which makes it homey. It's not a huge place, but allows for conversations even when it is a full house. We ordered calamari and some of the biggest mozzarella sticks I have ever seen for our appetizers. We each got different entrees and all bottles of wine are half price on Wednesdays, so we shared a bottle. We had filet mignon, scallops, pork chop, and shrimp fettuccine and everyone enjoyed their meals. The steak was perfectly cooked and so was the pork chop. The shrimp fettuccine was devoured and I cannot say enough about how delicious the scallops tasted. We got the gelato selection and the apple hand pies for dessert. The gelato is always great, but the hand pies were tender and flaky and oh, so good. I recommend this little gem to anyone looking for a place to meet up with friends for a nice dinner. It's a great date night place, too.

The food is fantastic! The tables are close together, so if you're looking for intimate conversation for two, this isn't as good of a selection because all of the two-top tables are very close to the neighboring tables. You can hear conversations around you. However, if that doesn't bother you, then everything else about this place is great! The food is definitely worth trying, and the place is lovely.

I was in town for a marathon and was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant like Bria Bistro in that part of Nashville. Healthy, fresh options. I had the salmon and a fall salad. Both were really excellent, well prepared, tasty and good portions (not too small or big). Hope to get back there sometime. It's really a lovely restaurant, nice service and great menu

Waited 15min past reservation time and was told it was because Open Table over books people. When I asked for a manager, the hostess responded with, she’s going to tell you the same thing. Then after I asked about the extended wait, she sat people that came in after us. We waited 30 mins for our dinner and was told that’s because it was the weekend. Food was room temperature, but we were so hungry, we didn’t want to say anything and have to wait any longer to eat.

Waitress was rude and condescending. By the end of the meal I wouldn’t even talk to her and let my son talk to her because I was biting my younger! She was truly one of tHe rudest waitresses we’ve ever had. They overbooked their reservations which they blamed on open table so the wait was long. Our food took so long that others ate and left before we even got our appetizers. The food was nothing like it was described on menu and overall wasn’t very good and very overpriced. Completely disappointing, what was supposed to be a birthday celebration on our road trip was only memorable because of the awful experience we had there.

Usually great, but things have been off the last 2 times. Service was very spotty but might be new personnel. Salmom was way overcooked. Sent back but took over 20 minutes to come out. Perfect the secod time and they did comp the item. Lasagne was too thin and mostly sauce and melted mozzarella. They can do better, and have in the past.

A solid choice for a variety of reasons. Some of the most favorable cheese I’ve ever had on the lasagna. The capellini pomodoro was simple and great tasting, but the portion was skimpy. Salad and bread were fine and the tiramisu was smooth, delicate and tasty. Give it a try. Next up foe me there is the eggplant parmigiana on spaghetti squash!
