I had heard about this establishment on several occasions from my wife who visits it every time she goes to Mentor to visit her family. So when I found myself in Mentor on a family visit I just had to try it, and it did not disappoint. The place is spacious, tables nicely spaced. Tablecloth service. Pleasant reception, prompt seating.... More

I like this place. Whenever I come to Mentor to visit my uncle, I always take him here as a kind of a small splurge (is that an oxymoron?). We always get the house salad, the insalata della casa, with a very light Parmesan cream dressing and some bacon. What could be bad about anything with bacon on it? And... More

My wife and I stopped here to have dinner while on a road trip. Everything was good if not great, and it served our purpose entirely.

I typically do not find chain restaurants serve very good food. Bravo is the exception. Love the pork chop dinner. Enjoy the bread and salad options. Good soup. Nice patio in the summer. Typically good service. No complaints.

We had Alyssa as our server and she did a fantastic job for us!!! She used to be a hostess, but has since become a waitress and we were very pleased. She hustled and never forgot a thing. The food was great as usual. We will continue to patronize this restaurant!

This was my first time eating at this restaurant and I will definitely go back. We were seated right away despite it being a Saturday night. My food was good and reasonably priced. The staff was polite I just wish the waiter would have checked on us more. I also think that the menu could have more of a variety... More

We always go back to Bravo because it is predictable. The food is excellent. The service is professional. The lasagna is huge!! I love the balsamic chicken too. Lobster bisque is to die for

We visited this Bravo on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not overly busy - maybe a 10 minute wait. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The food, when it was served, was average. The server forgot to bring my wife's salad dressing for 15 minutes and we all ate our salads while she waited. The quality of the... More

This is about as fine a chain Italian restaurant as you're likely to find, in my opinion. The bolognese is a tricky sauce for many chefs, and Bravo in Mentor at least makes a superb rendition of it. There is also an excellent happy hour in the bar area only with inexpensive fine appetizers. Some wine, some friends or a... More
