Italian
BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

The service goes down every year at Brio Annapolis. The staff is either not trained well or just does not care. Manager is not paying attention. Looking around the place at 7:45 on a Saturday night and half the tables are empty. That tells you a lot.

Pasta dishes were very dry. I had spaghetti bolognese and my sister had pasta in a cream sauce. Both were dry

We LOVED our waiter, I wish I could remember his name, but we have had him twice in the last month, wonderful service!

Food - It was a Sunday evening - maybe 3 other tables full, very quiet as it is August and lots of people on vacations right now. Three of us all order the Shrimp Capri ( I think it was called ) - shrimp was entirely overdone and even cold. Very disappointing as the last time we were there everything was done quite nicely. We had party of 10- maybe that was the issue, but honestly the shrimp dishes should have come out last - a novice error if you ask me.

Great place for a large group overall, as they are normally quite good at handling such a crowd.

The menu at Brio offers many choices, and everything we’ve ever ordered has been well prepared. We particularly enjoyed a carpaccio appetizer — the presentation was lovely and the beef was tender and delicious. The server was attentive and pleasant. The restaurant is a reliable choice for dining.

Adorable place, great atmosphere. Food was brought out very timely. Portions were good size. Our waiter was very attentive, almost too attentive lol. This was our first time there for date night. Would definitely come back!

Always a dependable delight!

A small note: Why did BRIO remove its outstanding PORK CHOPS from the menu ???

Had reservation for 7 pm and the restaurant was not busy when we arrived. The food was late coming out and we were not updated about the status or offered more drinks or water or bread. The quality of the food for the price was not good and my potatoes were undercooked which I informed my waiter. The alcohol drink was good but overall taste and quality of food and dessert for price was not. Disappointed by how this once favorite restaurant has dexlined.

Our server was most accommodating with regard to my milk allergy and recommended entrees that were acceptable. Service was prompt and gracious and the ambiance was first-class. A most enjoyable dinning experience.

I usually have good service when I come here but on this particular night, it was pretty bad. I was there with coworkers for a monthly get together and our server seemed like he didn't want to be there and was downright rude! Every time that he came over to our table, we were looking at each other amazed (and annoyed) by his demeanor.

There's not much to not like about this little reliable gem nestled in the heart of Annapolis Towne Center. Great wine list, attentive staff and a strong simple menu makes it a good place to sit and enjoy the company of others. Comfortable, chic yet unpretentious, Brio is like running into an old friend.

The menu changed since the last time I was there so there were less choices. I ordered the fish of the day which was very good. We also ordered the shrimp scampi crostini which was a delicious special. The bistec was on the fatty side for those that ordered it. Overall it was a very good meal.

Our service was horrific. Spoke with the manager but nothing was done and service remained horrible.

It took forever to get our food and orders and checks were wrong. Server never smiled and honestly did not seem to care that we spoke with the manager.

I will NEVER go back.

Beautiful Restaurant and a huge waste. Food came out cold and late. Front of the unapologetic about their lack of service or that our food was cold. My family and I received our sides late and we had finished our main courses. Overall, very disappointing.

Took my husband and son to Brio for Father's Day. The wait person we had was not good. Husband and son got only part of their meal while the rest of our party received their full meal. Manager was consulted and she immediately consulted the kitchen staff as to what was going on. By the time my husband and son (two dads) received their missing items (vegetables and potatoes), they had finished the rest of their meal. We did receive an apology and a 20% discount. We have previously dined at Brio with no problems. Not sure if the holiday overwhelmed the cooking and wait staff. I recommend moving forward, they have more available employees to assist with the anticipated holiday crowd. Overall, the food was good!

We had a wonderful dinner at Brio to celebrate a grandson’s birthday. Our waiter was extraordinary... attentive but not intrusive and aware of the pace if the meal. Kudos to him! The food was artistically presented and delicious. We will return soon.

Brio's is always a pleasure to go to for a special occasion. Our waitress was very good, but I would say you were slightly understaffed that evening. Getting drinks was particularly slow, but overall a great evening.
