    Horrible experience. Even after speaking with the manager twice, they prepared and served the incorrect entree. When presented with the bill, it too was incorrect not once, but twice as well. The waitstaff was humble and I do NOT fault them; however, they too have a lot of room for improvement especially with cycle time. These issues are a lack of management and most likely issues caused by the kitchen staff. Even the new waitstaff acknowledged that the kitchen gets stupid after 5pm on Friday. Avoid this restaurant.

    We were very excited to eat here after hearing such great things, so we made a reservation and were seated immediately. The waiter got us drinks and started us with an appetizer. We got the calimari for 12.99 and can I just say that it was terrible. It had no flavor at all and the breading on it was very crumbly and fell right off. It was very much over cooked and extremely hard to chew. The waiter did not bring us drink refills until we chased him down and yelled for him. We proceeded to wait 45 - 50 mins for our food. I ordered the chicken Marsala and my husband ordered the shrimp and lobster pasta. I asked for grape tomatoes to be cooked in my Marsala sauce, but when I received my plate, the tomatoes were ice cold and uncooked, while the rest of the food was hot. The chicken was extremely over- charred and tasted very burnt and overwhelming. Although he said it was very tasty, My husband’s pasta portion was extremely small for $33. I personally would not recommend this restaurant, and I will not be returning. Waiter was terrible and I was extremely disappointed in both the service and the food. Will be better to go to Olive Garden for a much cheaper meal with better quality as well as larger portion size.

    My friends & I always like going to Bravos. I had requested a table in the separate side alcove because I have a walker to park & some have hearing problems. They had a table for us in the middle of the restaurant near the kitchen area. It was louder there & I had to squeeze my walker into the corner.

    Food is consistently good. Service friendly and accommodating. Hostess was a bit lost and rude - we had reservations and she took name and then walked off for about 10 minutes while other people without reservations were seated - only 2 of us. When she returned she seemed to have forgotten about us. Not the typical experience there.

    This was my first visit to Bravo and it was pleasant, the food was tasty, however I did find the complimentary bread to be very plain tasting, the mozzarella appetizer was very good and worth the price. I had the woozie pasta and it was good but had a overpowered taste of garlic and very salty for me, I enjoy garlic and can tolerate high sodium but it was very poignant for me. I would visit again but would definitely like to try other foods.

    The food was funny service just a little slow I had asked for a substitution of spinach instead of pasta with my meal but the pasta came anyway. I eventually did get my spinach. Overall we enjoyed the meal and appreciated our table and reservation! Our waiter was extremely polite and wanted to please us!

    Our group has eaten there many times and almost always have an outstanding experience. This time was different. It took a while to get our food and when we did it obviously was sitting under the heater for sometime. The flatbreads were soggy and cold and pasta dishes were dried out. Definitely not the type of experience that we normally have.

    Had a reservation through open table. Waited 30 minutes at bar for our table to be ready, couldn’t get anyone to wait on us at bar. They said our table was read so went and sat down. Our waiter came over to table and said I want to go ahead and tell you the kitchen is taking 1 1/2 hours for food to come out. He pointed at table beside of us that looked couple looked very upset and said they’ve been waiting an hour and their order hasn’t even been fixed yet. We won’t be back, we went to another Italian restaurant in Greensboro that wasn’t a chain and we will be going there again.

    Wait staff was on point unfortunately the bar and kitchen was was not. It took 20 minutes to get first round of drinks and wait staff’s trainee was waiting at the bar so definitely knew it was the bar not having it together. Appetizers were fine but dinner was not. It seems to take forever to get the meal. Wait staff was very apologetic. I got the shrimp Alfredo and pasta was over cooked and didn’t appear fresh as it had been sitting under a heat lamp. Husband got the chicken Marsala and the chicken was over cooked and mashed potatoes were dry. Pepper shaker on table was empty. The meals the other couple got was pasta woozie and no complaints and I can’t remember the other meal but it’s was said to be ok. I have been to bravo several times and never been disappointed but unfortunately this time I was. Again our waitress and the trainee were awesome just wish the rest of the restaurant had it together for them!
