The staff couldn't have been more accomodating when I ate hear. They have a great bar and bites menu which was just the right amount of food for me. The entrees were large.

I didnt expect much from this chain restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised that the food was pretty decent. Not fabulous. Not fantastically creative . But certainly decent and certainly better than other chains, such as Carraba's and the Macaroni Grill. The room decor and atmosphere were actually much nicer than I expected.
I ordered the veal marsala entree for $22, but some of the entrees were $24, $27, $31. Those prices seemed a little high for this sort of place. Everyone at the table was satisfied with their meal, but ther was one flaw. We experienced totally indifferent service. We were seated at a table with no placesettings of napkins and silverware, and thats the way it remained until after our appetizers and salads were brought to the table--when we actually had to ask for silverware so we could eat them. The waitress rushed to take our order as if she had a deadline to meet. We felt liek we were holding her up. So she never bothered to tell us about the specials, which we heard recited by other waiters at nearby tables after our orders were placed. The staff was slow to refill our glasses, and ice tea was poured warm inot our glasses from a pitcher with no ice--not just once, but twice. We waited a very long time for our food--and when it finally arrived, the vegetarian in our party found chicken on top of her pasta, for no apparent reason. There were no apologies from the waitress. By the time a manager corrected it and brought out a new plate, the the rest of our party had finished their meals. We will not be hurrying back to Bravo.

Should have listened to other reviews and looked elsewhere. Vast menu, strong service, average tasting food for a little higher price than Olive Garden. Nothing special however the atmosphere was nice. Wedding soup needed lots of salt - server told me it was their #1 seller. chicken romano salad lacked flavor but was plentiful. Probably not going to get a return visit from me. Again, not because it was bad, it just wasnt better than average.

We dined at Bravo Cucina Italiana restaurant in Homestead yesterday for a late lunch on Mother's Day. The placed was literally packed, which was to be expected, since it was afterall Mother's Day. I am not exactly sure just how long the wait time was for a table if you didn't have a reservation, but fortunately I had made reservations 2 weeks in advance of Mother's Day in order to ensure a table. As soon as we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated immediately. Our server, who approached our table shortly after we were seated, immediately took our order for drinks. When she returned with our beverages, she also brought us a basket of Bravo's warm signature bread sticks with dipping sauce. She gave us a few more minutes to peruse the menu, before returning to take our orders. All of our meals were delicious, and considering the fact that the restaurant was packed and their kitchen must have been swamped, we received our meals in record time. Two of us in our party ordered the Chicken Parmesan Milanese, and the third member in our party ordered the Chicken Marsala. We all had a side dish of Cappellini with Pomodoro sauce, and we all ordered the Insalata Della Casa. Everything was fresh and served at just the right temperature. Despite the fact that the place was extremely busy, our server was very efficient and had a great sense of humor. The only faux paus that she committed was to forget the extra Pomodoro sauce that my husband had requested. Other than that, service was impeccable. We have dined at this location before, as well as the Bravo's at the Galleria in Mount Lebanon, and we have always been very happy with both their food and their service.
