BellaBrava is such a gem! Definitely a great place to dine or simply catch up with friends over happy hour specials. For drinks, I'd highly recommend the sangria or the skinny cucumber margarita. As for dining, try the spicy fried chickpeas or the goat cheese al forno to start. If you're feeling a healthy salad option, you can't go wrong with the spinach salad or misticanza salad. For heartier options, I love the Pasta Brava, pork ragu, and flatbread options. Not only does this fine Italian American restaurant offer great food, but the service is spectacular as well. Special shoutout to Claudia, Beth, Jim, Matt, Joe, Chandler and countless others who make you feel like family. Definitely one of the best restaurants in St. Pete! more »

Excellent food & service
My husband and I had dinner here on a Monday evening. Alyssa was our waitress and we both thought she was very pleasant, attentive, and prompt. We ate outside. Our meal
began with a shared caprese salad appetizer which we both thought was delicious. Next, we shared a green salad which had the BEST honey basil dressing...probably the best salad dressing I have ever tasted. For our meal we shared a 10 inch sausage/red pepper pizza. The sauce was great, and the dough is made in-house daily.
When service is excellent and the food is excellent it’s a win-win restaurant I would highly recommend if you’re in the downtown St Petersburg area!

Another wonderful evening
After the hostess sat us in a cozy booth we we're immediately greeted by Xavier, our very favorite person. After a nice chat we order wine and enjoyed a few relaxi
ng minutes before the caprese salad and sausage & roast pepper flatbreads arrived...yum... Xavier remember that we love a bit of bruchetta on top of our flatbreads. If you have never tried it is a must. Yum! Thanks Xavier for a wonderful evening. Ed and I meet 15 years ago and are so glad we picked Bella Brava to enjoy, relax and reminisce. Thank you for your exceptional service. We know anytime we visit Bella Brava we will be treated with delicious food, vino that soothes the soul and Xavier to just make our day bright. Thank you! We have been patrons of Bella Brava for over five years and we have never been disappointed. Thank you Xavier. more »

Best espresso martini anywhere
We had espresso and strawberry martinis. They were amazing. Bartenders were great. Food was amazing but server not good. Very inattentive. Would have liked fun fem
ale in glasses or tv guy. Went back to bar for dessert. more »

Good Food...but
Living downtown, this has always been one of my favorite places to go. They have a good happy hour and the food is usually good (although not as good as it was a year or two ago)
. On our most recent visit which was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, we wanted to sit outside. We were seated after a few minutes wait and all was good until we were surrounded by people with dogs. Don't get me wrong, I like dogs but when I go out to eat, I don't really want to have a dog sitting next to me that is barking at everyone one that walks by. In addition, I noticed one server that kept petting one of the dogs and then refilled glasses and carried plates without washing her hands. more »

Always good
Eat there quite often. Very consistent. Menu is big enough that you can try several different meals.

Besta Pasta !
Bellabrava knows how to make the perfect plate of pasta. They don't make the mistake of many restaurants by putting too many choices on their menu.
What they offer they
do right.
The service is excellent and the prices are reasonable.

Food was good, not outstanding
I had the seafood fra diavolo which was quite good but the scallops tasted a little strong, the shrimp were fine. The pasta was very nice! My husband had the spagh
etti and meatballs, although there were plenty of meatballs there was not much sauce. All in all, okay but not outstanding. more »

Forgettable
Our foursome had a preconceptions dinner here . Service was good. Calamari app was greasy. Wild boar ragout was basically pulled pork. The salmon was farmed and generally boring. Bre
ad was one roll for four people. Our companion liked his spaghetti and meatballs. House wine specials for happy hour were good. Won’t return but ok. more »

Excellent
From the fresh, warm bread service to the housemade pasta we truly enjoyed our dining experience. We sat outside under the palm trees shared a lovely Italian wine and both enjoyed our
pasta. Cacio & Bolognese .. both delizioso! Would definitely return. Take a walk after for gelato a few blocks away. more »

Good Italian at reasonable prices
Large restaurant with plenty of outdoor seating as well as large indoor dining rooms. Great pasta and the Cesare salad was loaded with white anchovies and shave
d parmesan cheese for under $10.00. A great value. Good service. Highly recommend this restaurant. more »

Much Improved
We’ve been to Bella Brava a few times. Our last visit was a real disappointment. But we were willing to give it another try—and it was much improved.
There’s a good val
ue happy hour with discounted drinks. With that we had the Turtle Creek Goat Cheese appetizer which was delicious. Our main courses had the option of adding a really good side salad for only $1.99. And the soup that came with one entrée was delicious.
For mains the Spaghetti & Meatballs, the Pappardelle Bolognese and the Chicken Diavola were all great.
Service was friendly and helpful.
I’m glad that I gave Bella Brava another try. I’ll be back.

Cute place
We came here on a busy saturday night before a concert. We managed to grab a table in the bar area and got served quickly. We had the caprese to start and it was delish. Also it was a
pretty big portion. For dinner, I had the cacio e pepe and it was just meh. It needed salt or something else because it was just very bland. Can't say I would recommend it. The place is cute and the service was good though! more »

Very Good Italian Restaurant in St Petersburg
Our family of four including two teenaged boys had a most enjoyable dinner here on a recent trip to St Petersburg. The restaurant came highly recomm
ended, and we were not disappointed. Although busy (Friday night), we were quickly seated and given menus. Our waitress was an authentic South Philly Italian heritage transplant, and s visitors from the Philadelphia area, this made our evening even more special. The menu is extensive and comprehensive, with something for all tastes and likes. The wine list was diverse and well priced, with nightly specials offered. From appetizers through to dessert, we all enjoyed the quality and quantity of our dishes, and despite how busy the restaurant was, we never felt rushed. All in all, a nice night out, at a reasonable cost. Brava indeed! more »
