“Buena pizza siempre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Out of 10 times I think about getting a pizza, 5 are in Brava Pizza. Pizzas are really tasty and the place is nicely designed. It can get a little loud sometimes, but it only adds to the mood of the place. Recommended!

“Best pizza in Panama”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We are a multi-generational family and have been to Brava Pizza & Espuma three times. Each time we have tried different pizzas and all of them have been outstanding. The pizza comes quickly and very hot, has a very thin and crunchy crust, and the toppings are excellent. The Napolitano, Brava, and pepperoni are especially good. They don't try to make crazy combinations to put on top the pizza: just a few ingredients that combine very well. We happened to go there on Mother's Day and they treated me and my mother-in-law with a mini-bottle of Champagne and a little bag of cookies. The service has always been very good and the environment is quite appealing. Lots of parking available in Multicentro and you can walk across the not-too-busy street between Multicentro and the Hard Rock Hotel.

“Dont expect much”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

The service from the server was mediocre. The food came late and it was not as great as it looked in the menu. The manager came to apologyze for the server's service and almost yelled at him in front of us.
I would not go there again

“Great pizza, stale desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

You can sit and watch the guy flipping the pizza dough - not only it it cool but it also means that a fresh pizza is on the way. We loved the pizzas - fresh and great tasting - straight out of the brick oven. We had empanadas as well - the pollo ones (chicken) - they were tasty as well. Inspired we ordered dessert - took one bite of the stale tiramisu and gave up.
So - go for the pizza but if you are in the mood for dessert - go elsewhere.
