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. Within walking distance of the Cincinnati Reds Great American Balllpark and a short drive from US Bank Area. 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.

Blackened swordfish was awesome, but parts of the Pork Chop were too undercooked. Chose not to send it back. Will still return though. Experience was nice and Derrick was great server.

Service is below par. IE daughter orders a kiss spaghetti w/ red sauce and a side of broccoli. Server actually asks if she would like the broccoli in the spaghetti it on side. No comment. Server multiple times was in your face touching you. Not friendly at all and not educated on the menu. Real bummer that management allowed this server to be on the floor. Bartenders do not know how to make signature cocktails. Very poor

We had two servers for our table, but it didn't feel like it at all. The food was good, but we had to ask for multiple items and the servers were never around. It was Mother's Day and they were busy.

Brio is always a reliable selection. First time for brunch and was impressed. Only complaint would be the acoustics. Very difficult to hear the people you are dining with.

Went for Mother's Day brunch. It was very busy. The food was not great. They are an Italian chain. They aren't known for brunch, and that was evident.

This time we went there the food was sub par. I ordered the parmesan chicken and my wife ordered the crab cakes. They were both bland, no flavor. We went here last year and the food was much better.

Went to Brio to ‘carb load’ before The Flying Pig marathon. Loved the menu options, but really just wanted something simple as trying new things the night before a huge race isn’t a good plan. Our server was so accommodating, as was the kitchen staff. The food was delicious. The sound level, while loud, wasn’t overly loud. It was prom night, so we had great people watching as well.

This dinner was planned for the families of 2 people who were competing in the Flying Pig Marathon the next day and wanted a quality, past meal the night before the race. It was a very good experience! I would definitely plan it again for the occasion.

Popular menu items should remain on the menu. Our favorite dinner and dessert was removed from the menu and we probably will no longer be returning to eat there.

One of the best Italian restaurants in the Cincinnati area. While it is part of a chain, the quality of the food and service is quite good. I recommend the tasty calamari fritti starter, the fresh Caesar salad, and the Chicken Carbonara or Lobster and Shrimp Risotto.

Went during restaurant week for their special three course meal for $25. Made reservation through open table, however when we arrived they had no tables available. From the looks of it they took a portable table and set it up for us. Forgot to lock the legs and when we got seated the table fell over. No table set ups so I had to steal salt and pepper and special menu from another table. The food was OK, nothing I would call special that I couldn’t make at home. Service was so-so but felt like a second class citizen.

There were four of us and I was the only who had experienced Brio Tuscan Grill before. It was a Columbus Oh location. I had recommended them and our experience did not disappoint. The food was excellent and well presented. The entire staff were friendly and courteous. Our server Sean was Outstanding! Gave us the attention we hoped for. The Restuarant Week price was $25.00/PP while almost every other restaurant was $35.00. The food was so generous that everyone had a lot leftover to take home. We had a Great Time!!
