    Ordered pasta pomodoro. Not the first time I ordered it, but probably the last time. The pasta came out look warm. So much cheese that the pasta stuck together. Had to ask for more sauce because it was so dry. Good restaurant, but many good items on the menu just not that pasta.

    Excellent spot to try! First time at this place. Kat was great, very helpful. Food was spot on. Excellent Italian fare that would please just about anyone. My boys enjoyed the pizza, it’s more than enough for two. Would definitely go back.

    It was very busy when we arrived, however your staff was well organized and helpful. We had to wait only 2-3 minutes for a table. We chose your restaurant for my birthday dinner based on your menu. I had my heart set on your lasagna but was told that it was out. I spoke to your waiter, Nelson, and he took care of everything. I had your rigatoni with the lasagna's meat sauce instead. It was delicious. Nelson was especially attentive and helpful. He even sang "Happy Birthday" to me. Next time we come to Brio, we will ask for Nelson. My husband and I give Brio and your staff an A+.

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with us! We're delighted to hear that despite the initial disappointment of the lasagna being unavailable, Nelson took excellent care of you and made your birthday dinner special. We're thrilled to hear your high praise for our staff and that you plan to request Nelson as your server next time. We look forward to welcoming you back!
