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!

This is like the Olive Garden or Romano's with a better atmosphere.I found the food acceptable,that's it.Sometimes you find a gem in the weeds other times what you see is what you get. In this type of restaurant,it's not home cooking it's corporate cusine with an italian name.

The yelp reviews were not too exciting but we decided to go anyway cuz it seemed like the best option neat the AMC theatre where we had to see a movie. And gotta say was quite surprised by the excellent quality of food. We had a salmon salad and another fish entree. Well seasoned, great texture. Would go again.

We went there for dinner. The wait was about 20 minutes. The staff seemed tired. And I think we lost our server for over half an hour at the end. The food we ordered was good but didn't seem to be made fresh. I will try it again - but only once more. Brio at Easton offers much better food... More

If you like Italian food, then you will love this restaurant. The food here is great. There is a large menu that has something for everyone. The atmosphere is pleasant and this is a good place for families. My favorite is the Insalata Della Casa. The is a very delicious salad.

I ate lunch with my wife, son and daughter. My wife and daughter like it much better than my son and I do. I had the Spaghettini and Meatballs. I like the meatballs but the Spaghetti was too thin for my liking. The spaghetti seemed to be made from scratch there in the restaurant. My wife and daughter had the... More

Stopped for dinner with friends and we tried their spicy scallops marinara. Need to ask for additional souce to get a better flavor but it was tasty and a had a hint of lingering heat. Also ordered shrimp scampi with a lemon white wine sauce, very good selection. The sauce was light and tasty with a bit of the lemon... More
