The Atmosphere was very Upscale. I ordered the Pasta Bravo and my Daughter ordered the Chicken Scaloppini both were exquisite. Our Waiter DJ was very personable and attentive. I will definitely eat there again next time I'm in Albuquerque.

We have stopped at several Bravo restaurants. Pleasant serving staff and good food. Popular so make a reservation or plan to wait. I had a steak tonight which I enjoyed. The mashed potatoes very hot which I appreciate. Food is consistent and the atmosphere is pleasant.

Blah! Two of us shared the lunch combo Pasta Bravo with Bravo chopped salad. Watery salad. The pasta was called their "signature dish" - grilled chicken, mushrooms and rigatoni in a red pepper cream sauce. The cream sauce was good. Between the two of us (happily they split it for us) there were three mushrooms in the dish and two... More

I went there because it was right next to my hotel and I don't regret it. Probably one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the US. The food is excellent (almost like in Italy) and service is great! I'll come again a 3rd time for sure.

During our visit to ABQ we decided to take one night out for a nice, sit down dinner. We had lots of choices but decided to go with Bravo Cucina. We had a 7:15pm reservation and had to wait about 10 minutes but no issue there. The server was pleasant enough but definitely needed to know more about certain dishes... More

We attended a birthday party at Bravo. Our group was quickly seated and efficiently served. The gentleman managing the service was most helpful and considerate. The food was ideal for our diet and was served hot and nicely prepared. The section provided for the group was ideal allowing interaction of the group while not negatively bothering other diners. Bravo for... More

While staying at the nearby Sheraton, my husband & I ate at Bravo Cucina Italiana in the nearby Coronado Center mall. (It's a very nice, clean, retro-ish mall.) We each ordered a side salad, a glass of wine/beer, then shared the chicken marsala entree. With the bread & seasoned olive oil at the table, we had a pleasant meal. The... More

Always like Bravo for the Happy Hour. Quality food and great prices. Staff in bar were quick and efficient. Flatbread is a must!

We tried Bravo today and once again we had delicious appetizers and the ice tea was very good while my sister raved about the Moscow Mule! The service was also outstanding! We shall return...
