Bravi is probably the best Restaurant in South Tyneside. The food and quality of service is consistently excellent and non more so than on New Years Eve. Prosecco on arrival, an excellent five course meal followed by more Prosecco at Midnight. Throughout the night there was disco music and a live Band. A tremendous festive atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Leaving party for a co worker, great event. The friendly staff efficiently served the meals and drinks. The food was tasty, hot and attractively presented. Sad occasion, but very good meal

We love the food at Bravi as well as the friendly staff, unlike your London restaurants you are not sitting so close to the next table that you can't help but hear their conversation. This restaurant is great if there are a few of you as it is quite roomy.

Celebrated my 60th birthday with a ladies lunch for 30 people at Bravi last Saturday. Can't speak too highly of the place. The food was delicious, staff attentive and friendly. Made my birthday so special: can't thank you enough Bravi

A lovely restaurant, staff were lovely too but the restaurant is so big and there was only a handful of tables which was a real shame but I think that is only down to South Shields itself being quiet. Lovely meal and a few glasses of wine which was quite nice. The prices seemed a little high for shields but... More

We eat here often. We love the food and the service is good too. We have taken friends,family and also celebrated birthdays. There is a good choice of food although the Italian food is definitely our favourite. A good place to eat in South Shields, easy to park and a good venue.
