The Sunday brunch menu offers a great variety of breakfast or lunch choices. The service was excellent and our waiter was polite and very attentive. Fresh baked bread was served with seasoned dipping oil as we waited for our food to arrive. The food arrived promptly and it was excellent and hot. Nothing worse than luke warm eggs. The food...

Bravo Cucina Italiana has great happy hour items and the Valentines Day menu was very nice too so we combined our selections from both menus. Bravo really does have a wonderful menu and their food is excellent. We can not resist the shrimp Napoli from the happy hour menu and the lobster bisque that was on the Valentines Day menu... More

We had a group dinner here one night - the drink was ok but the food was quite disappointing. Will not order filet from this restaurant again. Next time I will try to order salmon.

Have been going to Bravo's for over two years now and we always ask for Cindy. She is the best. We always enjoy sharing stories of the military and her father and finally got to take my dear friend Mr. Hershey Miyamura (MOH Korea) this past week so Cindy could meet him. She was overjoyed. The food and service are... More

I gather other people found better menu items but the three of us were a bit disappointed with the soups and salads. The bread was excellent but we had to ask for it. The house wine was nothing special as was the service. Pretty place, though.

The food and service here was not good. I had the steak. The meat was good but the topping was awful. The dessert description did not match the actual dessert. Not going back.

The Atmosphere was very Upscale. I ordered the Pasta Bravo and my Daughter ordered the Chicken Scaloppini both were exquisite. Our Waiter DJ was very personable and attentive. I will definitely eat there again next time I'm in Albuquerque.

We have stopped at several Bravo restaurants. Pleasant serving staff and good food. Popular so make a reservation or plan to wait. I had a steak tonight which I enjoyed. The mashed potatoes very hot which I appreciate. Food is consistent and the atmosphere is pleasant.

Blah! Two of us shared the lunch combo Pasta Bravo with Bravo chopped salad. Watery salad. The pasta was called their "signature dish" - grilled chicken, mushrooms and rigatoni in a red pepper cream sauce. The cream sauce was good. Between the two of us (happily they split it for us) there were three mushrooms in the dish and two... More

I went there because it was right next to my hotel and I don't regret it. Probably one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the US. The food is excellent (almost like in Italy) and service is great! I'll come again a 3rd time for sure.

Thank Damien B
