“Too bad”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went for lunch. Or brunch because my husband had that eggs bacon and potatoes. His meal was really good. The potatoes were different than the normal breakfast potatoes. My lunch and the service really brought the rating down to two stars. If you can see the photo below you'll see the avocado that I got on my turkey bacon and avocado sandwich. If you are an avocado lover like myself avacado is the main reason you order a sandwich such as this because it sounds so good. Also, the bread that they serve it on is the same bread they give you before your meal, their house bread. Not very good for a sandwich. My sandwich was almost gone before they got my fries out and we had asked for every refill. Just poor service as we stood there for 10 minutes before even getting seated even though they were not very busy, the table service was poor and like I said the food was poor. I might go back for dinner but never again for lunch.

“Not happy!”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

We dine at our Pittsburgh bravos often. We arrived at 6:27pm, there was a girl seated at the same time, we noticed she was able to order the bar bites, we were told we were late even though at the time it was stil Happy hour for cocktails,,,,at most all Bravos we are asked if we wanted more water, this didn't happen. The table in the bar were enjoying the bar bite foods and drinks, they were approached by a woman who was a manager I guess and she gave them the valentines weekend $10 coupon, but for us, buying full price dinners were not even approached by her or offered the coupon by any server, would pick another eatery in this area, as there are many other places to dine.

“Nice food, kind of crazy though”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Went here for a business meal with out-of-town guests. The food was good and the service was pretty fast. This is a really busy restaurant though, with lots of convention groups and large business meetings coming, so it can be loud and a little raucous. Still, the food is good and the service is nice.

“Worst meal I didn't even get!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Waited an hour and a half and never for our food. Server told us we'd be better off just leaving as some people were waiting 2 hours or more for their food. Then she still billed us for our salad! Awful awful awful. Will not be back! Went home at 830 at night and had pb&j

“Al dente…”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

This Bravo! Cuchina Italiana is very good with friendly and efficient service and good food. I had a nice dinner salad and a seafood pasta entree. Both were well prepared and tasted great. The wait staff service was attentive and friendly. Overall, I had a very satisfying Italian dining experience.
