I was SO lucky to go to Bravo Restaurant in Kalamazoo (technically Portage) Mich and have Alison Cole as my server. I talked to her about the history of the location (yes, it used to be Cosiglia's which I'd visited in the 1970's) and the more recent history of Bravo (28 years - a good track record.) Alison steered me... More

Driving through and saw this quaint quiet place was close by. Highly regarded on TripAdvisor so gave it a try. Service spot on and attentive. Food well presented and very flavourful. Price reasonable especially compared to an equal Canadian version. Recommended highly.

I have eaten at bravos many times over the years and have found both the food and the service to be consistently good. My favorite dishes are the pizzas, the pastas, and the fish which is always fresh. The desserts are also very good. The only thing I don't like about the restaurant is the fennel bread. I personally don't... More

We came in and were seated right away. We sat there for 15 minutes and still had not been waited on. Couple young ladies standing around the front desk and one was playing with her hair. The Manager, I assume walked up and looked our way and I waved him over and told him our dilemma. He apologized and said... More

I have ate here a few times for work and chamber of commerce functions, and I know they have some of the best pizza around. However, after a busy morning we stopped in around lunch time on Sunday. We were looking for some pizza, but they had a brunch going on that is excellent. The food selection was impressive and... More

There is nothing wrong with this restaurant. The food and service are both good. It does not inspire me in the ways that other places do. I do think it is the best restaurant close to the hotel and I would recommend it for a nice meal if you are staying in one of the hotels near the airport.

Joined a rehearsal dinner group and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the back room, the selection of appetizers (awesome pesto) and entrées. Hit it out of the coliseum with everything and everyone.

We went for a Sunday brunch to celebrate my mom's birthday. Like every buffet, there's some winners and losers, but overall, it was very good! I recommend it FYI - they do have pizza, but it has many other items as well

Thank Gregg A
