It was a comfortable atmosphere the people, meaning the staff and the customers were friendly. I had the skirt steak with a caesar salad. Delicious... I did not want to stop eating, so I clean my plate and didn't take any leftovers home. And the bread was so incredibly fresh more »

My best meal of my recent St Pete's trip. The food is amazing here and I can't wait to return. I took advantage of happy hour and tried their red sangria - light, refreshing and delicious. And at $5 a glass you truly can't go wrong. I also ordered a goat cheese crostini which was good, but a big helping for one person. Order this for a table of four for the perfect appetizer - 4 pieces, 1 per person. This way you can also try some other appetizers.
For dinner I opted for the salmon. It was cooked perfectly, with a light honey glaze. Other reviewers have mentioned the mashed potatoes and for good reason: they are to die for. My meal also came with a salad and my ceasar was just perfect. The croutons really stood out for me. Funny, huh? But they were just so good! This made me feel that the kitchen really takes pride in even the smallest of details. Service at the bar was a mix of friendly and efficient teamwork.
An affordable yet elegant option on St Pete's bay front. I highly recommend.

Exceptional flatbread, salads and apps. We regularly make the drive from 45 minutes away and are never disappointed. The bar staff is just awesome and the ambience is inviting and upscale. A special shout-out to our favorite bartender and fellow cat lover. Thanks for always making us feel at home. See you again soon on a weekday night - probably Monday for the great deals! more »

In town for the baseball games and family wanted to treat us to dinner. We chose Italian bc it's our favorite and they suggested here. Was a great experience. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Our server was funny and friendly. Lots of the staff is trained in the Heimlich should it ever be needed (and that's all I'm saying about that!) All of us enjoyed our meals. I just had spaghetti but couldn't have the meatballs too bc or my dairy allergy, but they were very accommodating about that. Good wine as well. Large bar seating in the front, patio, and regular dining area in the back. If you're looking for an Italian meal while in the downtown St Pete area, I strongly recommend BellaBrava! more »

We happened upon BellaBrava while visiting our daughter at college. The food was delicious and, if possible, the service was even better. Our server, Diane, was a delight. She was very knowledgeable and professional. more »

Ate dinner here with friends. The service was prompt and friendly. We shared some bruschetta and calamari for starters -- the bruschetta is a must order item and the calamari is average. We each had a house salad which was good and fresh. The Mortadella pizza was large enough for at least two people to share and was crisp and tasty. We sat outside and enjoyed the activity of people passing by and had a view of Tampa Bay. more »

This is s great little trattoria not far from the promenade in Saint Petersburg. We had Caesar salad and soup of the day. The soup was a very tasty tomato based vegetable soup. The salad was fine. We ordered a Margarita Pizza and eggplant parmigiana. Both were really good! We even ate the crust. Eggplant was served nice and hot with lots of cheese. I also want to mention they served up a piping hot mini loaf of bread and herb flavored butter. Yum! Service was friendly and fast. more »

My boyfriend and I are locals & frequent Bella Brava about once a month. My birthday was coming up & I had received an email from Bella Brava/Stillwaters Tavern offering a free birthday dinner. Since we like Bella Brava, I decided to go there for a lovely birthday dinner. When I asked & showed the email, no one seemed to know anything about it. The waiter had someone look into it & the result stated from some supervisor was that the email was only for Stillwater and that Bella Brava logo was only there because they are sister companies. They said they would offer a free dessert for confusion.
My boyfriend and I went about our dinner. The waiter told us about the specials & mentioned the grouper one in particular because it was grouper week. I chose the grouper because it sounded delicious. So after asking for bread then finishing our salads, the waiter informed me the grouper was not available. He was mistaken, it was for lunch menu only. I reverted back to my regular choice of wedge salad with shrimp. The staff brought my wedge salad out & did not bring my boyfriend's dinner at the same time. After requesting water refills many times and having more than enough salad for dinner, I was offered a choice of desserts. I received the wrong dessert. After that, we just asked for the check. Our waiter seemed incredibly distracted and I have to say I wasn't pleased with Bella Brava tonight.

We had just arrived at our hotel in downtown St. Pete., Florida. The hotel staff pointed us to BellaBrava for lunch.
This place is one of the most expensive restaurants on Beach Drive,( well, th
at's what we thought).
We went in. We were escorted to a very nice table by the window. We were welcomed with such ease.
They made us feel comfortable. We are on vacation and we saved for this trip and worked hard so we did not mind
Splurging a little.My wife had a tall iced tea. I has a tall house beer. We had the Pulpo plate in a wonderful tomato sauce with pasta.
We also had chicken paninis. We loved our stay at the BellaBrava restaurant. Oh, yes, did I mention the meal was very reasonably priced . The food was great. So come visit BellaBrava on Beach Dr.

Not only were we thrilled to hit a generous happy hour, but our dinner was great and just the right portions. I was apprehensive about ordering the eggplant dish because I'm often a little turned off by bitter tomato sauce. The tomato sauce here, however, was not bitter--just right! more »

Was there last Saturday for lunch and dinner last night and the food was great but the staff was exceptional. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful and when I called to make reservations the hostess was very friendly, and I had to call back to request a booth as that hostess was also very friendly. Dinner was great, but I haven't had such great service in a very long time! more »
