My husband and I have eaten here at least twice before, but this time it was too noisy to converse comfortably with friends. Maybe we ate earlier during previous visits. The gluten-free offerings attracted us each time.

Nothing horrible but it seemed like when our food came out our server was nowhere to be found. Another waiter brought the food. The food was good and had very generous portions. I was surprised that the menu was more expensive than what the website said, but perhaps it was a lunch versus dinner thing. They should check that and... More

The Shopping mall is high end and restaurant was nicely lit and comfortable. We were 15 in a private area - Service was solid for a large group. Food was freshly prepared and better than average - Calamari was very good and the warm cheese appetizer was also interesting, Veal Parm was very good, tortellini and sausage was tasty and... More

I typically eat here for business lunches 1-2 times per month. Historically it has been one of the nicer "go to" places in the area. This visit saw a changed menu format...not negative just different. More importantly I saw a certain lack of professionalism on the part of the server. We were left unattended in the outdoor dining area for... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant on a weekday afternoon, around 4:30pm. There was no line, and we were seated promptly. The staff could not have been friendlier in suggesting and listening to our wants and needs. If this review was for "water" only, they would have received 5 stars, unfortunately, the food was disappointing at best. I... More

yes, graduation day and we decided to go to a nice restaurant in Uptown. I had visited Bravo cucina italiana a few moths before, and it was good. However, this time, we did not have a positive experience. We had the rudest service in town. I mean, it was my son's graduation from high school, so we expected at least... More

Reservations need to be made on special days. I'm glad my daughter made them. It was a great lunch! My portion was too large so I took half home.

Overall this place was not bad. They were very accommodating of our large group and the food came promptly. The menu also had several options for those of us on special diets. All of this was nice, but overall the food was just okay.

I had the pleasure of being treated to dinner at Bravo and will definitely return next time I have a chance. The restaurant reminded me of a high class establishment you would find in Milan or Naples and the food was reminiscent of dinners I had in those cities! I was dining with business associates and was too embarrassed to... More

We were in the uptown area & stopped in for dinner. We were seated on in a section that had just opened up for the evening so seated a lot of tables all at once. Our waiter was clearly flustered but took our order. We asked for an appetizer & waited & waited...Finally we asked him about the appetizer &... More
