Bravo consistent and delicious

We have been dining at Bravo for over 15 years, and we have never had a bad meal. Between the delicious garlic rolls, the nicely priced wine selection, the perfectly cooked pasta, and the veal, chicken, and beef dishes, there is enough variety to satisfy everyone in your party.

Great food! Highly recommend chicken griglia or penne Bravo. They have a very nice selection of food under $10 from 5-7.

I had the penne della casa for lunch. While awaiting this entrée, I munched on fresh rolls hot out of the oven and spooned up a cup of very tasty pasta fagiole soup. Then came my entrée. It had great eye appeal with its dazzling colors -- red tomatoes, black olives, and bell peppers (red, green, and yellow). It tasted... More

The service was friendly and the food very good. Our waiter went beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had a pleasant t meal. We shared a pizza and a salad and that was plenty for two people. The servings are huge. Washed down with a Californian white it was good. Recommended.

I use to eat here 3-4 years ago, it's not what it used to be. For starters the waiter brought the entrees out before the apetizers. He took the entrees back and when they came back out they were either too hot or too cold. They were horrible, we hardly ate them and should have left but we continued with... More

I ordered from the lunch menu, opting for the angel hair pasta primavera with chicken Francese. While awaiting this entrée, I enjoyed the pasta fagioli soup and fresh rolls that came with the meal. The soup was thick and tasty. The rolls were doughy, just the way I like. My entrée was very good. I'd order it again. At $10.95,... More

We try to eat at the Bravo pre-cruise, staying at the Mariott Renaissance across the street. Arrived around 6:30, was not quite filled yet. They offer a happy hour on drinks which we wanted to take advantage of. Being we were not ordering off rather high priced menu, we could not use the happy hour offer. Ordered calamari which was...

Five for dinner...all pasta dishes great..everyone enjoyed their entrees. Only negative was the service. Pasquale, our server was slow at best. He was not attentive. Failed to check back after the entrees were served. After dinner coffee service failed to offer refills. Will return but ask for a different server.

We thought we were going to a Brio/Bravo chain restaurant ( which we like) , but boy, were we pleasantly surprised... the owner Russ will be quick to tell you he has been there on there for 23 years... long before the Brio/Bravo group got started. And is was far superior... what a great find.... food was excellent... service was... More

Stopped here for dinner to meet friends while waiting for a cruise. All I can say is that the food was amazing. Portions are excellent. Fresh buns. Prices are a little high... But totally Worth it. There is a deal where there are ten entrees offered for 10$ each, or five appetizers for 5$ each. I would totally recommend this... More
