The sangria here is super tasty and it's part of their happy hour menu. The asparagus and prosciutto flat bread is out of this world.

Our waitress was beyond terrific and attentive. We both had salmon with their delicious garlic mashed potatoes and spinach. My husband raved about his salad and the dressing. My vegetable soup was also very delightful. The prices were good and the selections plentiful. We would definitely return to this restaurant in the chic area of St. Petersburg.

Our group of twenty was well served, food and wine were well paired. Lasagna, pasta Brava and chicken marsala were all tender, great sauces. Dishes served hot.

Bella Brava is right on the main drag in downtown St. Pete. They have extensive outdoor seating, too. I love their Cobb salad, which they only have at lunch. Great place for a relaxing lunch or a business lunch. Definitely something for everyone. Dogs are allowed outside, too. There's street parking and valet at night. You can also park in... More

We went there for lunch and tried the flatbreads: fresh & tasty. They also had happy hour going on which was a nice plus. Service was prompt.

Extra star for the friendly server who handled our large group smoothly and without a hitch. The food was good and bonus points for the number and variety of gluten free choices as well as a decent wines by the glass list. It was a fun evening!

Yes, I agree, there are many gluten free options. Wait staff very informed about it and so is the chef, apparently. I chose the grouper special which was just perfect. I have no idea what it cost...wish waiters would tell the price when giving out the nightly specials. Husband had the skirt steak which he said was nothing special. We... More
