Great Pizza – great pizza! great prices! authntic italian taste. quality taste. great neighborhood business....a family favorite!!
Excellent – If your from the east coast and need a fix on the above mentioned Italian food necessities then Bravo's is the place for you.
Awesome food, needs better service – This is some of the best Italian food I've ever tasted. And coming from the east coast, that says a lot. Just wish they hired more English speaking personnel! The sauce in the pizza is AMAZING, fantastic meatballs and all the desserts are from Ferrara Bakery/Cafe (The institution) on Grand St. in NYC!!!!! (Apparently they're the same owners!!) Just wish the staff was as hospitable as the owner (and as literate!).
New York Pizza in Santa Monica! That's what I call heaven! – Being a former New Yorker, I sometimes just need my pizza fix... and what LA people think of Pizza Hut and Dominos' being good pizza... well... you people need to get out more. I've gone to a lot of pizza places claiming to have New York pizza, but I have to say Bravo hits the spot! They've got AMAZING pizza. I'm so lucky that I finally found that place. Also, if you're crazing for a canoli... if you don't know what a canoli is... well.. you're missing out. It's an Italian cream filled delight... that's out of this world... and the only place that has great canoli's in LA is Bravo's! What's can I say... I'm in heaven!
Good Pizza – Pizza was pretty good. Service was slow but worth the wait. Price was reasonable. Would recommend for someone willing to wait.
Best pizza in LA – I have been living in LA for about five years and am originally from new york. I am very picky about my pizza, but this is the best pizza available in LA.
Best NY Pizza in West LA – I've lived in the area for about two years now. When you first move into a new area, you look for "your bests"; these are the places that you go to when you want something specific. When you want to impress a visitor, you tell them to go here...or better yet, you take them there as an excuse to go back again. After sampling at least six different NY pizza places in the area, I've found my "Best NY PIzza" in Bravos. I've tried some of their variety and often find myself ordering either one of their cheese pizzas. Typically, I'm all about the topics, which is why I love thin crust. At Bravos, I eat the entire slice, even the crust. If you want NY Pizza, go to Bravos. (If someone can now help me find a good Chicago Deep Dish, that'd be great.)
Great Pizza, Nice outside dining area, Great customer service, Open Late. – About 2 weeks ago my family and I were looking for a place to eat. We ordered a sausage and pepperoni pie, and asked for a pasta & Chicken Parmigiano. the pizza was great, chicken fabulous but best of all was the surprise guest & show! A little Pomeranian named Austin invited himself to dinner. Much to my daughter's delight dinner now had an added attraction an employee, Johnnie and his skateboarding/skiing sidekick, Austin. I've seen dogs on Mtv but never seen one "fly." Truly amazing. If I didn't like the pizza I'd come back just to see the "show." The staff is friendly and the food held up to my pampered NY taste buds! Bravo Pizzeria is one of those small hidden gems that all the locals know about but don't always tell. Sorry guys, I let out the secrets. Bravo Pizzeria is easily becoming one of our favorite family eats! Oh, yeah the cannoli...Ferrara's the best in the Universe. Keep up the good work guys!
Everyone knows your name – There's a lot of competition on Main Street for Pizza, but Bravo offers a good variety of food and excellent sauces, cheeses, and fresh flavors to deliver the real deal straight from NY. Best part about this place is you can get a real live Canoli from Ferrara's in Little Italy--it took me about 14 yrs of going here to make this connection! NY'ers--GET OVER HERE! (boston natives, we love you even if you are Sox fans)...we love the Meat Lovers pizza and Rigatoni ala Farma (from Bravo Cucina on 3rd Street Promenade). Bravo is one of the most community friendly businesses and very supportive of the local schools--we all should support small business--they have a lot of heart!
Order only if you want to wait, wait, wait for the wrong, wrong, wrong delivery. – I should have taken the hint when the guy who took my delivery order, slurring his words together, quoted a price of $29.95 for a salad. Yes, he was joking but, it was a terrible sign for the rest of my experience.
Firstly, their website misquotes the Salad Della Casa (which was distinctly similar to OLD Trader Joe's salad mix, put into a plastic container with little more) as costing $6.95 but, upon receiving the bill for 2, cost me $17.00 before tax, you do the math.
They delivered the wrong pizza (I ordered a Margherita pizza, got a pepperoni pizza. Even when really drunk, I wouldn't imagine someone confusing the two words but so it was...). Additionally, the calzone we ordered was barely cooked, the cheese inside was hardly beginning to melt.
But to top it all of was the delivery guy, could not pass the bill to me without dropping it three times (another intoxicated employee?) and dropping packets of chili flakes all over my front door and leaving without a word. This, after an 1 hour and 45 minute wait (we live maybe 10 minutes from the place)???
The food is awful, the service abhorrent...how can the place continue to afford even its rent on pricey Main Street, Santa Monica? This is another example of restaurants surviving off of misinformation and customers? first time ignorance. Please, do yourself a favor, order from ANYWHERE else.
