“Good Italian Restaurant at Jordaan Creek Mall”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We had a very nice lunch at the Bravo Cucino next to Jordan Creek Mall. The service is very good and friendly. Despite a good sized crowd, our server was at the table almost as soon as we were seated. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful in pointing out menu items. She even offered to split my wife's salad in two so we could split it. I had the seared salmon pasta dish from the lunch menu and my wife had the egg plant parmesan from the regular menu. Both dishes were well prepared and tasted fresh. If you are looking for a good Italian restaurant for a decent price, this is a nice place for a brief respite from the hustle and bustle of the mall.

“Yummy Italian Food”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I had the pepperoni and meatball manicotti with a caesar salad. Both tasted delicious. I thought that a dish with two meats in the title would have more than mere particles in it but it was good anyway. The cheesecake made with Greek yogurt simply melted in my mouth. The wait staff was very professional and attentive without hovering.

“Tasty Italian in West Des Moines”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I was in West Des Moines for a business trip and tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. I hadn't realized it was part of a chain until I got there, but it was still very good.

It was a little hard to find (it's in the Jordan Creek Mall parking lot, near the Cheesecake Factory), but it was a very nice experience. It was after 8:00 on a Tuesday night, so it was not at all busy. But the servers were attentive, nonetheless.

There were a lot of great-looking things on the menu, so I had a tough time deciding what to try. I had a dish with grilled salmon on top of angel hair pasta, with veggies and a minimal sauce. It was one of the items listed as light entrees. It was very tasty and filling, even so. The bread and dipping sauce were great, as well.

I'd certainly recommend this place.

“Good food and ambiance”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Wife loves this place. Very nice atmosphere with consistently professional service. Food is cooked to order, but worth a few extra minutes. Don't hesitate to go there if you like Italian or are entertaining friends / company.
