They have a great wine choice. All the food we got tasted good but it wasn't the best Italian I have ever eaten. Even though the spaghetti and sauce looked watery.. I was VERY impressed how amazing it tasted. The garlic rolls are fantastic. The peanut butter cake tower was not that good. But they have many other desserts to... More

I was in Fort Lauderdale on 17th Street for 3 nights. There are basically two "nice" Italian restaurants, this and Carrabbia's, both within about a quarter of a mile from each other. I liked them both. Truthfully, I almost walked past this restaurant, but was drawn in by the bare brick walls, Italian posters, and the combination of the two... More

Loved this place, within walking distance from our hotel. The garlic rolls were amazing, for dinner we tried the osso bucco and the lasagna, both were great at the time of our visit. I highly recommend this beautiful place.

Great homestyle Italian restaurant that is always packed because the food is really good and the prices are reasonable. A fun, upbeat place with good staff. A short walk from the Embassy Suites.

It's alway fun having a meal at Bravo. Their prices are a great value and if you live in town the portions are plenty for a next day snack. The wine list is excellent and so are the prices. They serve what we consider the best Veal Piccata anywhere! It's tough not to order it every time you go. If... More

Party of six, including three generations, including a couple in their 70s, a couple in their 50s, and kids aged 20 and 16. We had an 8 pm NYE reservation, made well in advance, that was lost. Didn't take long to seat us, tho. Server and others were attentive and positive. Food was just so-so. Our choices included a range... More

You can find more expensive, way more expensive, but you won't find better food quality or service. It can be crowded at times, but for the most part you wil be seated quickly and there is not a bad seat in the house. Specials are always something to look at, not to say that their extensive menu and wine list... More

We had a very nice lunch at Bravo. We walked over from our hotel, we were greeted & promptly seated. The menu was enticing, our server was excellent, and the food was delicious & plentiful. We were just in town for the day after disembarking from a cruise with time to kill before our flight home. Bravo provided the perfect... More
