We came here because we were going to a play afterwards and it was close to where we needed to go. We sat at the bar and had some wine and drinks. Started off with the fried shrimp and anti pasta salad and both were ok, but fried shrimp is such a waste of money because the flavor is gone... More

Pretty typical Italian cuisine, but nothing was exceptional. We went on a Sunday afternoon and even though it was sparsely crowded it still took 10 minutes or so to sit down. The wait staff and managers were very attentive and courteous. The food was average to good, but I defnitely expected better. There are many options in the area and... More

While we have not eaten there for a couple of months, it is on our list as a good restaurants,in the Glenview area. We go more often to Gustos as it is within walking distance of our home. However we have had many great meals at Bravo. Bravo is well located in the Glen Center and they have free valet... More

Great appetizers before a show or after. Menu also includes light fare or more pasta choices. On certain nights they have special menu and select choices-- again good value. Also good drink selections .

Been at Bravo around five times, and it never disappoints. The restaurant is pretty and the service is good. Their lobster bisque is delicious though creamy and rich. I've tried also the lobster and shrimp ravioli in a vodka sauce.... mmmmh fantastic! I've gone always with coworkers and they are always happy with their dishes, so I'm sure you won't... More

The food is very good and the service was attentive and pleasant. Many of the standard Italian dishes on the menu. Some very nice desserts, especially the chocolate lava cake! Had a walk a bit since parking was limited at lunch time.

The first time I go to an Italian restaurant I order spaghetti (or some sort of pasta) and meatballs. It isn't easy making a good meatball. It can't fall apart when you look at it but it can't be so hard as to be a tennis ball. It needs some spice, but no so much as to overpower the sauce.... More
