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.

Our food and ambiance were perfect. Our service, however was not good. We asked our server for a few things a few times before he delivered. Either he was new, had too many tables or just an off night.

Great spot to grab lunch or dinner on a shopping day! Food is great - recommend the pest spaghetti with chicken! Fun to sit outdoors when weather is not too hot too.

The food was decent, but they were slow and the alcoholic beverages were terrible . We received appetizers at the same time as our food. We went for a birthday celebration. It looks nice, but This location I would not recommend, but I did eat at the Orlando location near Idrive and it was excellent.

Server must have been new or distracted - worst service ever. Served soup with no spoon, had to ask 3 times for 1 spoon. Left salmon off a salad. Went missing with our bill when. We were ready to leave. Next time we'll sit in bar. At least the bartenders are more attentive.

We sat at our table for about 10 minutes and no waiter/waitress came to greet us. I told the seating hostess and at least another 5 minutes passed and still no server. We finally flagged down another server and he saved the day and became our waiter. Once he started helping us, I saw a waitress and the seating hostess whispering to each other while looking at our table. She was about 15 minutes late helping us. Our impromptu server did good. The food was good but the restaurant was out of zucchini. We had to pick a different appetizer and my daughter had to pick a different entree. This was our second visit to BRIO and probably our last. With so many great restaurants nearby, it’s unacceptable to have a problem with getting a server especially after complaining.

I have always eaten at Brio and I had never had an issue. The food was awful. Drinks never came. It was the worst dining experience I have ever had.

Great food. Service was quick. We sat outside and there was live music at the entrance to the mall so it was a little loud. Very enjoyable dinner

We had dinner reservations for two on a Saturday night. The main dining room where we were seated had a party of 20-25 guests with close to half being young children. The noise level was extremely load not fitting for the main dining room at 7pm. On a Saturday night. Management made a poor decision to accommodate that many people including young children on a Saturday evening in a main dining room.

I organized a reunion for a small group of people that was originally planned for another restaurant. When that was not available I chose BRIO as the alternate. I think we will be going back as our first choice for the next reunion! Food was delicious, service was excellent, it was a great experience.

It has been a minute since my last visit to Brio, and am so glad to have recently returned. Despite a busy restaurant, the service was great! Our food arrived as requested, hot and delicious. The menu has changed, though-- would like to see the pork chop and veal come back- too bad they have been removed from the menu.

Good food and service, except for the wait for dessert. Very loud, but we caught it during high school homecoming, lol. Probably wouldn't be as loud on a normal Saturday night.

I reserved via the app and just let them know we were celebrating my parents 54th wedding anniversary. We arrived an hour early, we didn’t know how bad the traffic would be. They accommodated is without hesitation and the hostess led us to a private room, our service was wonderful. The management stopped by and asked us how our experience was. My parents were thrilled, they loved the food, ambiance and the service. We were treated like royalty. My dad is in ailing health and to be able to treat him and my mother to such a wonderful meal made them feel so special. Thank you thank you thank you.

We sat in the booth next to the bar. I think our waiter was a little annoyed that he had to wait on us and be a bartender. Next time, I think sitting in the dining room, we would get better service. The food was decent, but definitely a huge portion for lunch...that was a plus. Great value and you won't be hungry when you leave at least!

We’ve been to several BRIO restaurants in different cities as well as the one in Tampa where we enjoyed good food.
Last Friday our experience wasn’t that good: we had 2 plates with steamed veggies where some veggies were undercooked, the sauce in the chicken Marsala was a bit overcooked and the mashed potatoes and the future was like they had been sitting for a while.

We were looking for a place where we could visit without shouting and Brio fit the bill perfectly. Our server didn't rush us and yet was attentive. The food was not fabulous, but good enough to return. I especially liked the appetizer our server recommended that we share: the Spicy Shrimp and Eggplant. Great evening with good company!

This is our first time back in over a year. Food, service, ambience,value for money were all excellent. Think the restaurant may have new management as in the past we have had some bad experiences which put us off going back. But thought we would give it another try and what a turnaround. Throughly enjoyed our evening and would visit again in the very near future. Thank you.

Brio's is a consistently good experience - it is a nice casual spot - great to pop in and get fortified at lunchtime for the long hours of shopping ahead or for recovering from same in the evening over dinner!

Our server Kyle was outstanding. Food was great overall but very cheap bacon. You guys need to source better bacon. Super thin- worse than Denny’s.
