“GREAT VALUE!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Once you overlook the fact that this dynamic and convenient restaurant faces a posh shopping centre car park, it's a big YES all the way!
Very good value indeed, with classic salads and an epic burger. We went twice for lunch and once for a post movie supper. Very personable and informed service, some good wines ( generous by the glass) . Highly recommended for a casual meal in a smart venue.
They have a v good value Bites Menu after 9pm Monday to Friday !

“Top flight menu, great meeting place. . .but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We have eaten at Brio several times during the past few years and have enjoyed their diverse menu and creative preparations. Bread, soups, salads and entrees are all of excellent quality, but something is missing. Each time we have dined at Brio's there is some disappointing error in service--either a dish that was omitted or not prepared to our specifications. At times it was difficult to get our server's attention even with the restaurant half empty. Management may want to give serving staff a refresher in the basics. Brio is a chain restaurant, but management would be well advised to take some ownership of this otherwise fine concept.

“Great place to eat while your credit card recovers from the shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Brio is a nice restaurant set within the Waterside Shops.

It doesn't sound attractive but it really is and there is almost always a fairly busy buzzing atmosphere.

The food is very good, reasonably priced, the desserts are great.

Service is very good too.

If you roll up and its busy grab a table in the bar as soon as its free as this is a free seating area and you have access to all the delights of the full restaurant!

“No excuse for lousy service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

How Brio continues to survive on their lousy service is beyond my comprehension. There are 2 tiers of service; those servers who scurry about doing their jobs effectively and those servers that disappear for extended periods of time. We consistently get those who disappear. If it were not for the convenience of their location and the good food, we would not be back. For an upscale area why they continue to survive is beyond me. Below Average / Average rated restaurants cannot survive in a tourist environment like Naples FL.
