New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

This Italian eatery is the kind of place you’d be equally comfortable taking your visiting East Coast grandparents to or a romantic interest with whom you’re trying to “seal the deal.” Bravo Ristorante maintains the perfect balance between modest and upscale, being both impressively formal (waiters in black, menu in Italian, a substantial wine list) yet surprisingly comfortable (big squishy booths, high ceilings, and warm lighting from strings of naked light bulbs). An outdoor seating area, with its bubbling fountain and cleverly placed greenery and flowering plants that create a “living wall,” does a rather convincing job of masking the otherwise-blah plaza setting. Fare tends toward heavy-sounding meat and pasta dishes in the $15-to-$25 range (lasagna carnevale, totellini alfredo, veal saltimboca), but there are also tempting choices that are lighter on the wallet and the waistline (thin-crust pizza, a bright arugula salad). The service stands out — waiters are confident and solicitous without being condescending or fussy. This Fort Lauderdale dining veteran clearly has made it a priority to employ true professionals in the front of the house.

    The place to find a cop (eating) when you need one

    Excellent Italian food. We believe the best in the area. We drive 20 miles to eat there. Garlic rolls are the best. Pasta e fagioli is the balm. We have not gotten a bad meal yet.

    I didn't have my boarding pass with me, but I pulled up the e mail confirmation on my phone, and the manager took off the 20%!! Sweet!

    The food is great here. Try the Mediterraneo pizza especially.
