    Was seated, 10 mi Ute's before we were brought bread and water. Waited 30 more minutes and left, because no one said just a minute or asked if we needed a drink from the bar. Several waiters/waitresses passed by our very open location table. The restaurant was not crowded and they did not seem to understaffed. In fact I could have waited on all occupied tables with ease. Even if there was a shortage in the kitchen, does not excuse drink, salad, and order probably would have had several fro is while waiting for food. Disappointed because service on the past has been exceptional

    Restaurant was half full. All of the following took way too long: taking drink orders, receiving drinks, taking food order, receiving food, dessert, and receiving check. They were already out of one of the desserts we ordered. Another one would not have the gelato with it; we were told it was too soft to serve. Our salads were never delivered. Soup came at the same time as an entree. Coffee was never delivered (asked for 3 times).

    The waitress was wonderful. The ambience was very nice! I ordered an old fashion cocktail which did not look right. It was dark in color and did not taste good. I was up all night sick to my stomach. Some of us had pasta with the white sauce which was very pasty. We have dined there many times and never had a problem. This was the first.

    This is an unusual score for Bravo. In the past, the food has been good, he service efficient, and the pace just right. For this visit, it was way off. My suggestion: don't go on a Friday or Saturday night around 7. The place was full; we had to wait a few minutes for our table (with reservations), but that was just the beginning. When our server showed up, she was efficient at taking our orders (we thought). First I ordered an appetizer of Margarita flatbread. It took about 45 minutes to arrive. We ordered drinks at the same time. about 35 minutes later one showed up and was incorrect. Mine was missing in action. The flatbread showed up later and instead of what I ordered, we got a chicken and spinach flatbread. By this time I was aggrieved and asked for the manager. He showed up and gave us the same old song and dance: short staffed, bar and kitchen were slammed, etc. I could have bought that except tables around us who were seated later were being served faster. Different servers, I guess. The food when it came was very good as it usually is, but the wait was terrible. I would recommend it, but go early and not on a weekend. Never again on a Friday!

    As with most restaurants they were under staffed and service was slow. That said the young lady serving us was adorable. The slow response time and my Pasta Woozie was inedible. Other two people who had it said theirs was good. Not sure what happened to mine but it was dry and tasted like left overs. If not for Michelle our server this score would have been 2 stars. Understanding the challenges of labor market also makes me rate it as average.

    Encountered out of stock situations After placing orders. Manager and server were very apologetic. Manager personally came by the table and explained the problem and took full ownership for the dilemma. We mentioned that we understood; however he insisted on compensating everyone’s meals. In today’s challenging environment, it was a pleasant surprise to see management take on the responsibility while not lean on a rational/obvious excuse. Kudos to the manager and server for their redeeming efforts.

    We had an awful experience at lunch. Our food took over an hour to get. When it arrived, it was overcooked and the chicken was chewy and tasted bad. They had to rebook our meal. So we waited longer for the 2nd try on the food. We ended up getting our entire meal comp-ed because our experience was so bad. This used to be one of our favorite places. Not sure what has happened, but not the food or service we are used to from Bravo.

    Bravo Italian Kitchen - KnoxvilleResponded on July 18, 2022We are very sorry about your experience. We appreciate your feedback and thank you for bringing these opportunities to improve to our attention. We will undoubtedly pass your feedback to the management team.

    My daughter graduates from the University of Tennessee tomorrow night so I took your soul out to bravo. We had come in from Tampa Florida I had made the reservation earlier in the week. The food was spectacular the restaurant is super nice and we had the best service from the young man that took care of us, I’m so sorry I can’t remember his name but he was fantastic. This is a great place to go and have a good time I can’t say enough about it thank you so much

    Food was average. Under seasoned for the most part. Chicken parmigiana was over cooked and dry around the edges. Slightly under sauced. Smaller portion on chicken compared to website pics more pasta of course it’s less expensive. Wife’s capellini was ok but still seasonings was off sauce lacked definition waitress was young so I don’t think she understood timing. Kept pushing us to order instead of allowing us to enjoy the dinner
