First visit ... Outstanding!
We are visiting St Pete for a weekend getaway. Tonight we wanted to go see a move at the Sundial. So I made reservations online for dinner at BellaBrava for 5:15pm.
Reservation process was easy. 30 minutes prior to our scheduled time, I got a friendly text message reminding me of my reservation, and if I thought I would be late, to let them know.
Instead we got there 5 minutes ahead of time and we were promptly seated. On a Saturday in January at 5pm, the place was not busy yet. But we expected that within an hour or so ti would be full, which is what happened.
We started off with a glass of wine and an amazing bruschetta made with house made ricotta cheese, prosciutto, arugula, parmesan and olive oil and amazing bread. Bruschetta is generally just bruschetta. But this took the award. The waitress told us this was a new recipe that they had just put on the menu.
For dinner my wife ordered Crostata - rigatoncini pasta with house made sausage, roasted peppers, ricotta, sauce and more -- all then baked in an over with asiago cheese crust covering the whole bowl, much like a meat pie. It was amazing (yes, I had to help my wife eat it!).
Meanwhile, I had the waitress' recommendation, which was Raviol;i Genovese -- ravioli with goat cheese, spinach, pine nuts, basil pesto cream and oven dried tomatoes. This is a MUST HAVE disk in my opinion!
We were too full to try any desserts. But the service was excellent, and the food even more so. Our bill was $55 before tip. Not bad at all!!!

I think this restaurant has a lot going for it, but it's not perfect. In summary, it has a nice atmosphere with friendly service. I had the half chicken with arugula and mashed potatoes and it was tasty! It is also in a prime location on Beach drive. The reason I give it 4 stars is a matter of opinion: I think there are better alternatives now-a-days in DTSP such as Lure, Buya ramen, and La V. All Therese places are great to eat and drink at same or less price. BellaBrava is a great place but just doesn't excite me anymore. more »

We’ve eaten here several times and the food is absolutely spectacular, the the service is usually hit or miss which I equate to how I’ve observed some of the management speaking to the employees in front of customers. I have held several leadership positions throughout my career, many in the restaurant industry and the general rule of thumb is to praise your employee in public when they’re doing something right but if you have a criticism you pull that person aside and you handle that privately. Other than that, keep making delicious food and we’ll be back! more »

Fantastic food!
Portion size isn't hefty, so you will be satisfied after a meal, but without leftovers. People used to eating more than average will think they are smaller portions... But a
s a 6'6" guy, I felt satisfied after a salad and some raviolis, without feeling stuffed.
The service was amazing, but I did go there during non-peak hours... Could have been my timing.
Huge thanks to our server, Alex (and the food runner, forgot her name but she has an awesome half-shaved haircut dyed black), who heard one of my friends comments about portion size... They ended up bringing out another order of the meatball grinder for free, just to make him satisfied. Hats off to the staff!

A great place for lunch
We enjoyed a great lunch with excellent service (kudos to Joe, our waiter) after visiting the Dali Museum (and arriving during happy hour was an added bonus). We had the
house salad (delicious dressing), spinach/goat cheese ravioli (excellent!) and a couple of ver y good sandwiches. We would eat there again in a heartbeat! more »

Great place
This is a very solid restaurant with hard working folks who very clearly care about what they do. We have been twice and sat at the bar, but there are both indoor and outdoor tables.
On our first visit, I had the best grouper that I have ever eaten. The second visit rewarded us with delicious salads and a wonderful flatbread pizza. The cosmo was just pink enough. This restaurant is really worth a trip in from the beaches and is better than almost anything you will find out there. Highly recommend. more »

Best, best best pizza!
We love Bella Brava! We usually order a Caesar salad and the Hot Sicilian pizza. Be warned, the pizza is spicy! but delicious. Always a good place for a quick bite. We go
early as they get busy later in the evening. more »
