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.

They scheduled a huge Christmas party in the middle of the restaurant and the people in the party were intoxicated and extremely loud—No effort was made to quiet them. Our dinner sucked as we couldn’t hear each other even speak. 😡

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!

Our first visit to Bria Bistro was a fabulous experience. The Pappardelle and Blackened Salmon dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. And the cheesecake? Oh my. And I'm not a dessert person, or at least I wasn't. Service was attentive...our server was obviously a long-time pro. We highly recommend Bria Bistro!

Pretty good local Italian restaurant. Nice bar setup and great happy hour drinks. Bartenders and servers are always good.
Food is good but not great. I've been here several times and trying to find that one dish that moves this place into the great category.
Overall it's better than most Italian restaurants in the area and it won't break the bank.

Food was not as good as in the past. Our waitress was not friendly or Welcoming. One lady asked for rare deal on and it arrived well done, no pink at all. My chicken piccata was tough, like it had been heated over. Will give it another try, as I used to come frequently. But we will see.
