Bravo's has been a mainstay of the 17th St Causeway for many years. The food is excellent and the service equally as good. Authentic Italian Cuisine!!

I tried this restaurant using a Groupon; however, I realized that having arrived at 6:30 I could have sampled one of several offerings for $12.00 and $6.00 appetizers between 5-7 pm. But my chicken silician was large, flavorful, and tasty and I had a choice of soup or a large tossed salad and a side order of pasta. The area... More

There is a myriad of lunch specials available at bargain prices. I opted for the chicken fancese, which came with pasta. I got the angel hair pasta with fancese sauce. But there are several pasta choices and a few sauce options. Preceding this entrée, I had a cup or soup and two fresh rolls. These were part of the entrée.... More

Fort Lauderdale isn't that big a town, but I don't get to the SE 17th Street corridor very often. I've eaten at Bravo a handful of times over the years and was there again last month. For better or worse, I ALWAYS order the roasted garlic pizza. It's amazing! Coupled with a glass or two of a nice Super Tuscan... More

This isn't your ordinary Italian restaurant! Food is outstanding along with the martinis! We came from an Italian town in Ohio and this place puts them to shame! Excellent,excellent food. Very high quality.

Very pretty place but food was a little bland. I have been to Italy and it does not taste like this, I will say the decor was beautiful. My waiter did not seem to know the answers to my questions when it came to spirits from the bar. My dessert was delish though. A small note , this is the... More

I stopped in for dinner by myself tonight. Folks, bottom line, I own restaurants in another city and I will tell you that the owner is on staff greeting guests and he's celebrating 26 years in business. Everything I had from the fresh garden salad with real home made balsamic vinaigrette, hot baked garlic rolls, pasta appetizer that was done... More

Really good food! Had the lunch specials. Lots of food for the price. The salmon and swordfish (catches of the day) were incredibly fresh and perfectly grilled. John, our server, was very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and hospitable. We'll be back!

I went to my favorite restaurant on 17th Street and it was very busy with a long wait and then we went to another restaurant that was closed so Bravo was nearby and we decide to try it. I thought the restaurant was decorated nicely, staff very friendly but the food wasn't very good. The eggplant appetizer wasn't very good... More
