This has been one of our family favorites for years! It's a warm, friendly and classy environment where you always get a fantastic meal and service. It's a beautiful environment for celebrations for family events, business lunches, bridal lunches, anniversary dinners, etc. Also, for Easter, Mother's Day, etc. their brunches are delicious! You can't go wrong when you go to... More

Went there the day after Christmas for a family lunch. Food is very good but not much selection and the prices are really high. $14 for a 10" pizza.

Probably one of the most consistently best restaurants in the Kalamazoo area. Wait staff are well trained and attentive. Menu is varied and does accommodate those of us that are gluten free. Sunday brunch is outstanding and a great value.

Had a nice dinner out with my family. Service was great, we never felt rushed or ignored. Everyone was happy with their meals, food arrived cooked as requested. We were very happy with our visit and would recommend.

I had high hopes for this restaurant as we were celebrating a special event which was noted when the reservation was made. There was no acknowledgement of the event by the restaurant. The Wine list we were provided had several wines that they no longer carry. The cappuccino was terrible but to his credit, the waiter removed that charge from... More

The ambience great, food not so. The salads were not as shown on the menu; the Signature Salad had few cranberries, no goat cheese. The pasta with the shrimp scampi was skimpy.

High quality Italian style food. The thin crust wood fired pizza is a favorite as well as the salads. Spumoni ice cream desert was a generous portion.

I had the chicken with sundried tomato and goat cheese. It was excellent! I will say i don't like green beans and loved theirs. We also had their spinich and artichoke dip and i would suggest ordering it. We loved it. Our waiter wasn't the friendliest but he was fantastic at what he does. They forgot the roasted bell peppers... More

Found Bravo! On a ten best restaurants site and decided to try it out as it is very convenient to the highway. We were very glad we did as it did not disappoint in any way. To start with the service was excellent and prompt. They start off with their own homemade bread with both butter and olive oil which... More

From the moment we walked in we knew it was going to be a great meal. At 5:30 in the evening on a week night the place was packed! The chicken pesto pizza and the eggplant appetizer were delicious! Sarah was a great waitress and helped make it a great dining experiance.
