Great happy hour

Great food too. Love their flat bread and pan sautéed calamari. Wonderful veal piccata. HH is throughout the entire restaurant, not just at bar area.

Enjoyed eating at Bravo recently. Fantastic Italian food and a great wait staff (thanks to Tom). Very pleasant atmosphere not far from the port of Ft. Lauderdale. I enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs. The salad was crisp and fresh with homemade dressing. The garlic bread was amazing. Very pleasant atmosphere, with outside seating as well. A must if in the...

Convenient resturant to Ft Lauderdale boat show. Excellent food with similar service. Would recommend to friends and family and will return again. Price was reasonable and was a great place to talk without being rushed. Would recommend reservations.

We ate here for my daughters and wife's birthdays and had a very nice time. The food was great, and there was plenty of variety. I will return to this restaurant.

From the lunch special menu, I opted to try the catch of the day, which this day was red snapper. This entrée came with sides of spaghetti with tomato sauce and vegetables (string beans and carrots). Rolls and a cup of pasta fagiole soup were part of the meal and preceded the entrée to my table. The soup was good.... More

My wife had lasagna, and I had the spaghetti and meatballs. Both came with a salad and wonderful garlic rolls. She had two glasses or wine,... More

four of us went to Bravo for a final meal before returning to the UK. The young lady serving us was very attentive and friendly. The mussels and grilled calamari starters were excellent. The pizzas (for main) were tasty and good value. The pasta portions were very large and perhaps a little too heavy. Wine selection was nice, and as... More
