The food and service are good. Don’t take reservations for parties of less than 6 . Downtown restaurants are very busy so I don’t think they have to. I find hostesses and management to be somewhat arrogant.

The atmosphere was very energetic but the food was overcooked and fairly tasteless. There are much better options.

We were looking for Happy Hour food on Beach Drive, but that was hard to find. BellaBrava had no food deals, but a good deals on drinks. We decided to have an early dinner. Two of us shared the Crostata. Looks like an upside down pizza, but the crust was bread dough. Very good, but could have had a little more sauce inside. Others had the lobster mac and cheese. They liked it. Our server was very good. Attentive and personable with her 1930s hair style. Great early evening.

That smell on most nights is sewer gas from somewhere near the bathrooms...sorry (but fix it already) It has really, really gotten worst latley. Then NO nightly specials??? WTF ever??? WTF really dudes pull your head OUT !! Then they fired the chief that was there for as long as I can remember... I would say Il Ritrourno on Central tween 4 and 5th. The guys that run this place would do better running and coming up with nightly specials at a Mc Donald's SHAME ON YOU !! Taking advantage of tourist. The steak was tough, the pizza soggy and the sewer gas overwhelming (gag reflex). I have NEVER seen the rich kid ownerss during dinner....think about having Phillip from Cassis to take your spit hole over...

Nothing else needs to be said. it was incredible. Margarita flatbread and Caesar salad were excellent too. Claudia, our server, was very nice. I could have gone right to the brownie though. It was one of the best I have ever had. YUMMY!!!!
