We had a small reception in BRAVI'S for about 18 guests following a Registry office wedding, and It was absolutely perfect in every way. They even offered to open a little earlier to accommodate our timing, and we were offered a secluded area to one side which was perfect for the needs of our party... read more

I have eaten here quite a few times but not for a few years and always had good food. We went for the two course special the pate and goats cheese starters were tasty but not overly special. The mains of chorizo risotto had a basic fault NO CHORIZO and was very bland and under seasoned. The vongole pasta had... More

I was here for a family meal after a wedding, I thoroughly enjoyed the meals provided and felt there was a wide range of choice and the prices were very reasonable. There is a sizable bar area with very decent prices. Everything one would expect in such a restaurant from Steak to vegetarian dishes right through to the standard pizza... More

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.

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.
