First time we have been to Bella Brava. The restaurant was very nice, Food was very good, Service was excellent. We went with another couple and between the 4 of us we had, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Pepperoni, Sausage Pizza, Ravioli Genovese and Salmon. All entrees were enjoyable. We will go back.

Great food and great service. Lovely setting on beach drive. Best Italian food. Eggplant parmesan and lobster macaroni and cheese are the best.

I took my son and a couple of his friends here for a celebratory dinner on a very busy Thursday night. The staff were uniformly cheerful, helpful and efficient, and the food was yummy.
