“Delicious!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Our first experience was great! Would definitely go back! Both our pasta dishes were phenomenal! Ordered a fantastic homemade tagliatelle & two colored cavatelli seafood dish! The pasta is fresh and light and the sauce was great! Take it from the daughter of a chef...it's worth going to check out!! Also try the granita!...It's made in house! Fantastically refreshing! The service was excellent and staff was very welcoming!

“NEVER AGAIN!!!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

I had such a bad experience that i had to write about this at 1AM after getting back from the restaurant because i cannot keep it in any longer. First off, the female clown that greeted my daughter was rude, would not let her check and see if our party has arrived when she could not confirm which name the reservation was made under. Then we arrived and same problem with a male clown this time. Not a very good first impression but we were hungry and hoped for a good meal in good company... Well, we were in for a BIG disappointment. It took them an hour to bring us our antipasti and primi at the same time... The excuse was: " it's Grand Prix and we're very busy". Hello, then don't book your restaurant to capacity if you're not able to accomodate.

When the food arrived finally, here i'll spare you the details, it was ok but portions were so small and the price so steep, we just all looked at each other in complete disbelief. 5 of us went out to eat at another restaurant because we were still hungry. Do i need to say more? All of us said NEVER AGAIN. And if this place wants to stay in business, get rid of those two clowns that call themselves maitre d's or send them to etiquette school!

“Brama; a desired place to be”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Brama being an old Latin word for desire is the perfect name to describe the feeling for their food and ambiance.
Once you experience a night at Brama you will "desire" another.
The food was amazing! The staff was very warm and insightful. They even recommended a club to attend and went to the extent of getting us guestlist. The owners are very down to earth and can be approached very easily,as if you knew them for 20years. The vibe in this restaurant is incredible. Yes it is a loud crowd, only because everyone is enjoying their party. I also saw groups engaging in conversation with random groups. I did not expect any of this for a new kid on the block of Little Italy. More places need to be like Brama. Everyone is friends at Brama!
