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.

I asked for sour cream and the server said no we don't; which I knew they had as I had it before. Informed celebrating a birthday who I was with...NOTHING from server..no acknowledgement! Don't question the customer when the customer inform the coffee is cold; awkward conversation! She eventually brought a fresh hot cup of coffee. Thanks

Waiter kept forgetting to bring the appetizer.
$18 for a salad is a bit much.
Otherwise food is always good.

The food came out rather quickly as did the soup appetizer, however both were good. I would say as far as price, I have had better a Italian food and would probably recommend somewhere else that I knew before I would recommend Brio. The service though, was fantastic.

Chicken Limone was delicious, Cacio Pepe was not traditional Italian but good none the less. Service was excellent and great ambiance would definitely recommend.

Not your fault, but was sitting in booth next to one with a small child jumping and pounding on back of booth throughout meal very unpleasant. Suggest families with small children at a table where they would affect other diners less.

Came here for my step mother’s birthday dinner. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. It was a great meal especially for a venue that was kid friendly.

Worst dining experience ever, waited over 30 minutes for our food the pasta Alfredo looked like a ball of goo and was barely warm, served on an ice cold plate, friends salmon was dry and cold, manager blamed it on the party of 30 before us. I would not send my worst enemy there to eat. Oh and btw we were on a return on complaint...

Lasagne tasty but not enough meat and too rich for my taste. Shrimp & Lobster pasta in exceptionally delicious sauce, however would prefer a bit more lobster and shrimp slightly caramelized. Ricotta cheesecake really delicious.

We brought our 88 year old father for Sunday lunch. We are frequent customers to Brio’s. In both Raleigh and Charlotte. It was an off day for service and food. The restaurant did not appear busier than normal. Pasta was not Al Dante it simply was not cooked. Food timing extremely slow between salads and Entree. Waiter apologized twice for delays in bread, food, refills etc. Having said that the lamb chop entree was delicious and cooked to perfection. The waiter delivered our check without asking if we wanted dessert and coffe ( we did).

The french toast at brunch was amazing! Prices for brunch are more reasonable than other mealtimes - definitely worthwhile during the weekend. The wait time for my friend and I's food was a little long, but they may have been because there was a BOGO brunch special happening at the time. It's a really cute place - perfect for a date or for a nice gathering with friends.

My friends and I went to Brio to try their BOGO brunch special this past Sunday. The food was amazing. I had the stuffed French toast with bacon which was great! My husband had the veggie omelet and one of my friends had something that was 'off menu'. He ordered crab cake benedict and it was HEAVENLY. I will definitely be back for brunch again.

Food had good flavor but WAY overpriced for portion size. Also was not appetizing looking into the dirty side of the kitchen every time the door swung open. This should be blocked from the view of the diners.

The food seemed to take an exceptional long time. Not sure if it was the server or kitchen that contributed to slow service. Approximately 1 hour wait time for the food.

Was kinda disappointing. The Carpaccio was still frozen to the plate. The pasta in my husbands chicken pesto dish was undercooked or had sat under the heat lamp too long. Our appetizer was served before the bread. The waitress did not provide clean plates,for the bread. This dining experience definitely was disappointing and definitely not on the same par as our other vsits

Atmosphere and waitstaff were awesome! Very warm greeting when we first arrived. My biggest complaint is the amount of food we received for the price. I had the chicken and pasta and it was a lot of pasta and very little chicken, maybe three pieces. I do not think that was worth the over $20 that was paid for the meal. My uncle got the shrimp and lobster pasta and he had three shrimp and a couple of pieces of lobster. I do not think that was worth over $30.
