We went here on a weekday for a nice quiet lunch. The outdoor seating is right next to the water which was peaceful and gorgeous, though, if you're going to order fruity drinks I would suggest sitting inside as the bee's can be annoying. The food is good quality and the menu has much to offer. I could eat lunch... More

Upscale Italian was just what we wanted and just what we received. Our wait for a table (fifteen minutes) was less than expected on a Friday night. Service was prompt, and the meal was very good.

Try to visit Bravo every time we are in the Des Moines area. Love their Insalata del Casa, their pasta, and their bread and oil. Have also had their crab cakes which were excellent, a lot of lump crab and not too much filling. Service has always been excellent.

I went to a luncheon yesterday at Bravo Cucina Italiano. The waiter was excellent and he took care of everyone in a speedy manner. I had the salad and soup, and everything was fine. They have special running every day and my friend had the shrimp salad and it was big! Everyone was pleased with what they ordered.

The salads are crisp and wonderful combinations of tastes. The bread excellent, drinks good and reasonable, service exceptional and if you desire the outside seating is available. A great location for a small family affair or a business off site meeting

We took advantage of the nice weather to eat lunch outside. I was a little apprehensive about the restaurant since it was attached to a mall. I could not have been more wrong. The service and food were fabulous. The next time we are visiting west Des Moines again I would like to go back.
