Amazing wine and beer list. Fabulous, well-executed tapas and simple plates. What was great is the fun atmosphere--youthful and yet, relaxing. Loved this little spot!

We had heard tell of how great BRAVA was and finally decided to see for ourselves. Nice intimate and casual place, not fancy, but comfortable - reminded me of tapas places I had been in Europe. Service was great, with three very knowledgeable guys serving us and answering questions. The food was great. Modest sized portions, excellent sauces and presentations.... More

We had pizza, pasta, tomato soup, salad, and all were excellent. Service was excellent too. Definitely worth a stop if in the area. The only thing lacking is outdoor dining.

We live in Great Barrington so only go to Brava in the "off" season. It's small (only about 30 seats) but a wonderful place to go with a few friends since you can order a bunch of small plates and taste them all. Pizza is consistently excellent, meatballs are very good, grilled romaine salad is outstanding. Their beer list is... More

Great casual but original bar fare, with a really, really good beer selection. Bartenders were friendly and very knowledgeable.

We arrived late and hungry. Brava did not disappoint. People at the bar at this small place were so loud we were put off. But the food won us over. They accept no reservations but are open late so arriving at 9:30 pm was no problem. The chard with black garlic was sublime. The lambchop lollipops were also good. My... More

We needed a place for a late dinner after a show. Brava was the only place open. Its got a very nice tapas menu and decent pizzas. However, it is crazy loud. Literally, it was beyond uncomfortable. If you wnat a loud tapas place - go here.

We sat at the bar because there was not enough seating available for four. Although it was difficult to carry on a conversation because it was very loud our server was charming and knowledgeable. The space is small and cozy and the food was delicious. We had a great time.

Interesting and tasty dishes to sample and share. Arugula salad was tasty, as was beet salad (although I'd recommend half the # of beets and add greens). Steak with chimichurri sauce was good, but not as good as mine (sauce should be purreed, not chopped), and calamari was fine, though a very small dish. Pizzas are quite good, especially the... More

Only open evenings but stays open late. A smallish place with different and interesting tappas and salads, local beer and extensive wine list. Everything we had was good. People were very helpful and friendly, we did not feel pressured to make quick choices. The place was full and consequently quite loud but everyone was there to have a good meal... More
