Description: Bratta's Seafood Steaks & Pasta has a variety of foods on their menu serving classic American/Italian Cuisine at extremely affordable prices, such as the Taylor Street baked Ziti, or a Blackened Salmon Salad for a lighter fare choice. A UNIQUE concept while dining is thoroughly enjoyed by many locals as well as visitors. Where else can you enjoy talented musicians 7 nights a week. Wine, Dine & Relax is our motto and if music is not your forty , then join us for the Best Happy Hour in town from 4-6:30pm. Also unique, we offer half price drinks on all brands to satisfy the customers that drink a certain choice. Also, in the young hours we offer Two for $20 menu from 4-5:30pm. After dinner, satisfy your pallet with the "Grand Finale," a baby chocolate piano filled with homemade espresso sauvignon mousse or our homemade cheesecakes or Tiramisu or possibly a Lemon cello or an espresso or Cappuccino.

“How Bratta's has changed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

We can't tell you how disappointing our latest visit to Bratta's was.We have spent the last few months telling everyone we know how great Bratta's was.Will have to adjust that review.Last night dinner very very disappointing.Each and everything we ordered was far below usual Bratta's fare.Thought they must have a new chef which was confirmed by manager.From the soup which was too salty to the overcooked clams the first course was not good and the second not much better.We do hope we may find changes made so we might return to our favorite restaurant otherwise will have to find our next favorite place.

We thank you for your review and we understand you were very disappointed, but I would like to state that we do not have a new chef, as a matter of fact we have one cook of ten years and one of two years that cook every night . They actually both had the cold that was going around and prep all of our food. It took us a couple of days to figure out why some recipes were salty. There taste buds were off completely. We had a few complaints during the same time. Thank goodness for the people who tell you in person and understand when you are preparing food fresh, taste can alter. That is why chains are so successful. They have meals shipped in plastic bags and heated at the location so no error occurs. It works well for them, but we cook to order. I did notice this is your first review but yet it sounded like you enjoyed us greatly in the past. Maybe I am reading it wrong. Thanks again for your negative feedback.

“Excellent food, service and music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Two friends and I had dinner at Bratta's last Friday. Our waiter, Dave, was very attentive to our needs although he was very busy. We had the petite filet and the salmon which were prepared exactly as ordered. The music by Paul and Renata was wonderful as always.

“ST patrick food was a big disapointment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Party of six on March 17th. Four meals were off the menu the other two were Corned Beef and cabbage. The meat had a lot of grizzle and the cabbage was way under cooked. The waiter was very appoogetioc and offered to replace dinner, But I was not very hungry to try and eat another meal.I had recommended Bratta because of previous visits. Very disAPPOINTED WITH THIS VISIT. Thank you for taking time to read this.

“Nice Music entertainment while you enjoy Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This Restaurant has never disappointed me!
Always consistent! Do not expect over the top fancy stuff!
They do a good job on their cocktails, their Wine list is not extensive but they have some good choices at a pretty good price, and no to mention that they have some good coupons to take advantage of on the news paper or the coupon book!
I like the Music! and the Giant Giraffe! :)
