While on a day trip to the Dali and Chihuly Museums in St. Pete, we drove down Beach drive looking for an interesting place for a late lunch. By chance, we picked BellaBrava. We made a good choice,but there were many more restaurants within a couple of blocks. All of the food was very good. The Siena Chicken Piadina was... More

My husband and I had lunch after touring the fine arts museum across the street. I had a sausage and pepper flatbread pizza and my husband had a pasta dish with fresh pasta, chicken, ham in a creamy sauce. Both dishes were very good as was the Caesar salad. I would go back to this restaurant again!

Love this place! Every time someone comes to visit us we always go here for a nice dinner. The food is amazing, their ravioli and skirt steak are wonderful. And their inside and outside seating both have a great atmosphere.

Let's start with the waiter spilling water on the table when serving drinks, not apologizing and not wiping it up. Just to see, we let it sit there, mostly under my dining companion's plate, throughout lunch. Their signature salad was good. The sandwiches were average and the fries under average.

Stopped at Bella Brava for dinner on a Friday night while on vacation in St. Petersburg. Didn’t have a reservation and were told it would be at least an hour for a table. We didn’t have time to wait, so we decided to give it a try another night thinking it must be good due to its popularity. Made a... More

2 adults & 2 teens enjoyed dinner here. They had a nice special price on great red wine. The boys loved they had pizzas. Our waiter Ramey was well trained and very knowledgeable. He was very personal. Really added to our evening enjoyment. 1 adult had a terrific fish dish and the other had a pasta dish. The fish dish... More

Perhaps our server was having a bad night but, wow, did we feel like we were not welcome. We ordered a very expensive bottle of wine - which was excellent - and the tuna carpaccio - which was also excellent. We sat outside and everything BUT the service was good.
