Great evening
Reservation was for indoors but it was a beautiful evening so we asked for an outdoor table. They were able to accomodate us without hesitation. Very efficient waitress. Good food.
One order was rigatoni and meatballs. Good amount of pasta with 3 large meatballs. Other order was papardelle pasta with meat sauce. Also good size and very tasty. more »

Locals love BellaBrava
I have eaten at BellaBrava several times and the food and service is always great. Don't miss their bruschetta! YUM! I usually order the salmon dinner because I love
it and would highly recommend. You can eat inside or outside with comfort. Call ahead for reservation - they are great about that! They text you when time is getting close. Visitors and locals love this place for a reason. Try it! more »

Great Italian Food
We visited for the first time on a Saturday night. It was very busy and we didn't have a reservation so we sat at the bar for about 20 minutes. When we were seated we had
good service and very good food that was delivered quickly. I had a delicious pizza and my husband had spaghetti and meatballs which he loved. We also had a side Caesar salad and lovely bread with it. The food was excellent and the portions are a very good size. We've eaten in many Italian restaurants, including in Italy, and this one was very comparable and we will return. The only thing I didn't like was the drink. While we sat at the bar, the bartender told me the sangria was made of red wine, a couple different brandies, fresh orange pieces and a bit of sprite. It sounded good so I ordered it. I usually love sangria but this was full of ice and tasted just like watered down red wine. I couldn't taste any brandy or other flavors. I watched them make drinks and most of them were a small amount of liquor and a glass filled with ice. I really felt that they were taking advantage of their customers as most drinks started at $10. more »

They were perfect. We had a large party, and our service could not have been better. They even split our checks and split our guest of honor’s charge between us like it was nothing. My food was delicious, I had the anti pasto( mmm warmed olives) and sampled bites of my friends dishes. So good!! more »

Almost Excellent Dinner
We met friends for dinner on a weeknight at BellaBrava. We had a reservation (highly recommended) and were promptly shown to our table. When you enter B.B. you are immedi
ately at the corner of the large and vibrant bar. It was hopping all night!
The menu is very attractive, our waitperson told us it had recently been refreshed. We all had trouble reducing the attractive options down to our orders. We all enjoyed our dinner very much.
The only misfire for the entire evening occurred when “refreshed” drinks didn’t come from the bar together and the salads didn’t come from the kitchen together. Not a big deal, it was just a bit confusing. Otherwise our service was very good.
BB is easy to find in the center of the Beach Drive scene. The easiest parking is through the valet service available. BB validates half the valet cost. BB was a great choice; we’ll return soon.

Beautiful lunch outdoors
We had lunch in the outdoor seating area on a sunny afternoon. It was easy to adjust their offerings to our vegan diet and our server was helpful in that regard. Spicy c
hickpeas as an appetizer were a real hit - perfectly seasoned! Salads were ample. Flatbreads were topped with impeccably fresh veggies and quite flavorful. Plenty of beverage offerings including splits of Prosecco which made for a relaxing way to spend an afternoon in St. Pete. more »

Delicious Food, Reasonable Pricing - worth calling ahead for a table
I thought the food was good. We had bruschetta as an appetizer and then I ordered eggplant parmesan for a main. Make sure to
make a reservation if you plan to go during the weekend, or call ahead. more »

Wonderful Flavors, Nice Experience
My date loved the salmon dish he had-- and he's very picky. I'm vegan and it was rather challenging to put together something I could eat. Our Server
did, however, make a great suggestion regards a Vegetali pizza sans the cheese. Delicious! It was date night for us, so we were willing to spend a bit more time and money. Did feel like things were a bit on the pricey side. We will likely visit again. more »

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!!!

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 »

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 »
