Yup Greg, the server, was nice, we came in 30 mins before closing. Food was ok, I had rigatoni. I heard the salmon was good and Cesar salad was great. I use to love the pork chops but they weren't good the last few times so I choose to forego them. I forgot, the cocktails there are overpriced for what... More

He makes us the best drinks and the service is great. We are served warm bread with dipping oil. I always get the same thing, Ceaser Salad and lobster bisque... More

Normally we love Bravo. I ordered the Wedding soup which I normally think is the best. Today mine was cold with all the pasta clumped together. Yes, I should have sent it back. My Antipasto salad was lacking in everything but lettuce. Hubby got lasagna which he said was cold and average in taste. I thought it was a large... More

Myself and my family at here in November 2002. My Cousin and I split a Leg of lamb dinner and a Chicken Parm dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

We had a great experience with a large group at this restaurant. The table was ready on a busy parents weekend when we arrived - it was great that they took a reservation. Loved the food, loved our servers. Give it a try!

Came here for lunch today with a work colleague. Ordered the soup and salad special and was quite pleased with the Wedding Soup and the Della Casa salad. Excellent and prompt service makes this a convenient stop when you're craving a bit of Italian at lunchtime.

Our family went to Bravo, on a Friday night for a birthday celebration. Our group was seated promptly. The food was tasty. They gave the birthday girls complimentary dessert, complete with lit candles, to make their wish. Yummy!
