Success! Thanks for posting your review of Bravo Cucina Italiana. You’ve done the world some good today.

My favorite place to eat

I love Bravo (Hayden Road)...the service, the food, the atmosphere. We go for every special occasion and always take out-of-town guests here too. I am surprized at the negative comments; we have been going for more than 7 years and have never been disappointed.

Good Food. Service..eeeh!

I enjoyed my first visit here. The steak and shrimp were to die for! The veggies and salad were just okay. Wine list was nicely priced. My waitress dissappeared so I spoke to a bus boy who didn't understand english. A bit frustrating. But all-in-all... I'll be back.

Great Service, Average Food at Best

Me and my family decided to celebrate a birthday at Bravo. We loved the decor, service was wonderful, but the food was overprice and average at best. The server was great, and the manager was very friendly. I would pay those prices if the product was better, but our experience was average at best. Will try them again due to the great servcie, and just maybe we picked the wrong dishes or they had a off night.

Great food, horrible host

The staff that seats people are horrible. Even with a reservation you can wait 40 minutes and then they seat walkins before you. If you complain you get no apology and no offer to compensate you for your wait. The food is excellent but not worth the hassle.

Yummy Italian... Great Atmosphere

When I lived in Columbus, my family and I spent every birthday dinner at the Bravo on Hayden Run Rd. The staff is incredibly accomodating and always thoughtful.\r Great location, sophisticated scene and fabulous Italian cuisine.\r Now when I travel back to C-Bus for business I always take my clients to a Bravo or Brio restaurant location.

One of My Favorite Spots for Lunch

I love the Penn Mediterranean and the chopped salad. Good food and fast service.

Bad experiences were taken care of by good manager

The restaurant was so uncomfortably cold that we ate dinner in our coats. Since our table was near the door we kept getting blasts of cold air even though we had asked our waitress if there was a warmer table we could have. We would have left at that point except that we were there to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday. If a restaurant is going to be that cold they should offer complimentary hot beverages or close... view more

Having read the other reviews, I am actually a little surprised about how much most people rave about Bravo. This restaurant is just OK. It has some nice dishes, but there are also some that are way too salty (most of the seafood) and a few that are just plain bland. I have had both good and bad service here. The best thing about this restaurant is the bread they give you to munch on before the meal. I have no proble... view more

Terrible service

Had to get up and chase down the waiter every time we wanted something: salad, wine, desert, whatever. Nobody ever came by to ask how things were. The plates of food were literally thrown down on the table. The food was dry and cold; it looked like leftovers from the night before and had been sitting out, unrefrigerated, overnight. This was my worst experience in over 60 years of eating out.
