    Waited about 15 mins for waitress to come to the table after being seated. It’s one thing to have to wait long, but it’s another when there’s no apology for the wait. Just a simple, “I’m sorry for your wait”, goes a long way. Also, I appreciate places that allow you to just get rings without tentacles when ordering calamari. This place you have no choice.

    Service was a little sloppy, we kept reminding our server to bring water, bread, etc. It took forever to get our bill. Food was ok. The pesto pasta was a little dry and the eggplant parmigiana's sauce was a little overwhelming. I ordered the same meal before and it was better.

    The staff at the restaurant were all very kind and polite however the volume inside was incredibly high. So much so that it was difficult to hear the servers speak. There is also not much space when you enter to sit and wait for your table. The food is amazing served fast and had no issues

    Has been one of our regular favorites for a year or so. Food was a notch lower than usual. Current wine selection disappointing. I'm sure we'll try again sometime but not for a while and with lower expectations.

    I love Bella Brava in St Pete and that’s why I wanted to try the one in Tampa. The tables were very close to each other .Basically I had to hear whatever other people were talking and having them sneezing next to me. I wanted to have a nice dinner with my husband for my birthday and Valentine’s Day. Definitely were are not coming back to this location.
    BellaBrava TampaResponded on 15 February 2024
    We apologize you did not like your seating arrangement. We are always willing to do our best to accommodate different seating if you are uncomfortable, though due to the holiday we were extremely full and tables were moved around to accommodate the influx in reservations. We hope you come back to try us on a normal night where you might have the more private setting you were looking for.

    Back when they initially opened, we went there and we weren’t really satisfied with the food. However, this time we decided to give it another chance, since they’ve been open for a while now. The food for three of the four people eating did not taste great at all. Additionally, the waitress was not very attentive to our table. We had to continue ask to get her. The bottom line, we will probably never go back because of the food.

    The 4stars overall is due to a 25 minute wait to be seated when we had a scheduled reservation. There’s really no way that should happen, Great food… really delicious, server was fantastic (Delilah)… The noise level was pretty high, but could still mostly hear what table mates were saying.
    BellaBrava TampaResponded on 13 February 2024
    We do apologize you had to wait for your table after making a reservation Michael, we do try to time out every dining experience to the best of our abilities so that we know how many reservations we can take at each time slot. Unfortunately some reservations like to stay longer than anticipated and it sometime pushes things back a bit. We will work on adjusting as we can but don't like to rush diners out the door if they are enjoying their dinner at their own pace. We are glad everything else was great and hope you come back again soon.

    BB is usually reliable but not this time. Pasta dish tasted like it had been cooked several weeks ago. Entrees came out 2 minutes after salads so pacing of the meal was poor. Midtown location has always lagged behind St. Pete and likely will not return to this location.

    A repeat visit for us, we wanted to see what has changed since we were there a year ago. The Vespa is gone! LOL. The motorbike in the wait area is gone but the noise level is not. It was a busy Friday so we chose to use our rezy outdoors with the beautiful evening weather. It was easier to deal with the traffic noise that the inside noise level. I would not recommend this restaurant to meet with friends to 'catch up', you might be hearing "what?" alot or conversing loud and adding to the problem. That aside, service was very good, our waitress had a business card with her name on it-very handy in a noisy environment. Drinks and bread platter were offered immediately and our Margherita pizza came very quickly. The ambience of being outside is hard to beat-assuming good weather. Would go more often if the noise situation were addressed.
    BellaBrava TampaResponded on 11 February 2024
    Thank you for your review Jerrye, we completely understand your issue with the noise and it is something we actively work on. Unfortunately the more alcohol you get into people the louder they talk and in a small space there is only so much we can do to dampen the noise. We will continue to try and work on this so that our guests have the best experience possible and do appreciate the feedback from you. We hope you will come back and dine on our patio or in our semiprivate dining room again sometime soon.

    We came on a Monday evening at 6pm. We made reservations ahead of time. But they were not yet busy and looked like we could have come without a reservation. We had their bruschetta for our appetizer and it was delicious. For dinner I had a vegetable pasta bowl that was great, with just enough spice/kick to it. My wife had their salmon with polenta, which as he said was delicious as well.

    Another exceptional Bella bravo experience Had the Chicken Saltimboca. It never fails my taste buds. My wife had the Gnocchi which she said was excellent We shared the Arancini appetizer. This may be one of the best I have ever had. One thing I have to say it comes in a white sauce, not a tomato sauce. I like both but some people would prefer a tomato sauce. The wine list is excellent and very well priced. As usual the service was the top notch.

    It's been a while since I have visited the St Pete location but this was my first time visiting the Tampa location. Service and ambience was great. Our waiter was attentIve and checked in regularly. My food very disappointing I should have said something but didn't. I didn't even eat half. The meat balls were bland no flavor at all the pasta tasted like it was boiled in old water. The dish lack any flavor at all when I got home I just tossed it. I will say the Bruschetta was great and highly recommended. I will give them a 2nd at another time but not anytime soon.
