“Good place to eat indoors or out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I were vacationing and he chose this place. As usual we were skeptical being our first time and all... but actually everything was VERY GOOD! Zach was our server and he was very nice and polite. He was also very knowledgeable about the items on the menu. The best part of all was the price. Good food for VERY cheap :)

“Good Food Fun Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

BellaBrava is a fun place to meet friends and enjoy dinner outside or indoors. I was part of a group of nine on a very busy Friday night. Luckily for us we had reservations and had a table inside. It was a happening place. Lots of people seemed to be enjoying their Friday night. If you have not visited St. Petersburg recently you will be surprised to see just how much fun you can have downtown. BellaBrava is one of those places. I had the Wood Grilled Chicken Picatta for dinner. The food was good. We will be back that’s for sure.

“Always good”

Tomato bisque was lovely. The caprese is great - best mozzarella ever. Sicilian pizza was really good too. One of our favorite lunch spots in st Pete

“Great meal with friends and family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I grew up in St. Petersburg and have seen the Beach Drive area make drastic changes for the better and BellaBrava is a definite plus. I now live out of town and was trying to find a place to eat on Memorial Day with friends that have 3 children under the age of 4, my infant, and grandparents. BellaBrava was wonderfully accommodating to our crew. The scene is a little "hip" but not too noisy for a bunch of toddlers. We weren't the only ones with children, but it's definitely not a "Chuck-E-Cheese" feel with children running all over the place. The children were well-behaved, not to run off the single crowd.

The servers were friendly and the wine was great. I really liked how the Calamari had some other fried treats in it. The flat bread pizza was great as was the bruschetta. The chefs will allow you to make adjustments to the meals, which is fantastic. The friends we were eating with are from N.J. and they said this italian food was wonderful. I'm adding it to my list of places to always eat in St. Pete.

“Good Italian food at good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Sometimes you just want some good Italian food, not the homestyle Italian food you can get any many chain and mom & pop shops, but real Italian style food. This place hit the spot. The only reason I gave this a 4 out of 5 is because their pizza was not excellent.
