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.

Wine selection and Food were excellent but portions were small. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and definitely take my entire family back again. Thank you for a memorable evening

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.

My son and husband took me there for Mother's Day. We were lucky to get a reservation the same day. We were seated in about 5 minutes as soon as a table was cleared. Reggie was our server and he was great. My lamb chops were perfectly cooked and even thought I didn't like the sweetness of my Old Fashion, Reggie quickly replaced it with a Side Car with no qestions asked. it was a very pleasant experience as always, despite the rain!

It was a very busy Saturday night: Mother's Day Eve, Proms, Graduations, whew... it was BUSY! We had a great time and we enjoyed our dinners. The overall value was excellent. We had a wonderful hostess, Cheryl. She checked in to make sure all was well for our special occasion. And our server, Matt, was OUTSTANDING! He was super busy and we had several special requests. He handled it all with grace, patience, caring and a big smile. It was a perfect venue for our Mom's celebration!

I've been a satisfied regular diner at Brios in Annapolis for years! The last 3 visits have been terrible. The kitchen has been just as inconsistent as the service and management. My visit there last night has convinced me to find a new favorite spot in Annapolis.

The food was good-not great. The cost was quite high for the party of 5 with only one drink was over $220. The space was open making conversation more difficult. Table was nicely appointed and chairs comfortable. The waiter was very good. The Rosemary chicken is not served with any veggies, just a piece of chicken and potatoes. We enjoyed the evening but for the price, there are a few other restaurants in the area that would be my first choice.

The only complaint I've ever had, after dining at Brio many times, is the noise level. It's loud when it's crowded, no biggie - just expect it. If you're looking for a quiet dinner for two, this isn't it - if you're looking for good food and service, this is it. We've never had a bad meal here (or service for that matter).

Stopped in early on a Saturday evening for some dinner with the family, and never had any food. My family’s food was delivered hot and delicious, but my food was brought ice cold. Then, they returned my food after my family was finished but the vegetable was cold. I took it to go, and was not pleased with the reheat. Staff was nice about it, but management could have done a better job or all my trouble.

I like Brio. But it is not the same as a few years ago. The light fare menu is now missing. My food was way too salty. The waiter was great, but the wait staff assistant? Not so much. We are people, not an assembly line. I most enjoyed Brio in North Bethesda which sadly closed some time ago. I'll try again, but hope it gets better.

The food isn't a showstopper but the service is good. The back patio is a great spot for a glass of wine with friends, but the music in the restaurant is too loud to hear the other guests at my table.

We were a group of eight celebrating 2 birthdays. Our reservations were for 2:30 on a Saturday afternoon, and the timing was perfect...just after lunch but before the dinner crowd. Our waiter was extremely professional, and made the dining experience GREAT for everyone! I can't wait to come back!

Had a lunch with a table of 7. Two were children under 5. One adult was 87 years old, one had a broken ankle, and one was pregnant. Heck of a mix. Seating was immediate and considered our situation that allowed for storage of a handicap scooter next to the table. Waiter provided tremendous assistance as was needed. He kept our drinks coming, was very amiable, and was providing sincere assistance/accommodations with our orders/requests. We were not rushed, we felt welcome and taken care of. I also spoke to the manager regarding how please we were with his service. Overall food was fantastic. Appetizers and salads were great as was the main meal. We celebrated a birthday and servers accommodated opening gifts and a birthday cake we brought in. Highly recommend Brio for their service and food. They really allowed our special event to be everything we had hoped it would be. Thanks.

Lovely evening overall. Chicken was flavorful, but a bit dry - maybe over cooked a bit? Sides were wonderful. Server was pleasant but spoke so softly we could barely hear him.
