We stopped in for lunch after visiting the Newport Aquarium. The staff was attentive and friendly, reasonable prices for food and drinks and all prepared well. A nice atmosphere too. Wish we had one locally!

We weren't sure we wanted to stop in - it looked a little fancy for two hot travelers. So glad we braved it. Wonderful service - delicious food. Relaxing and friendly. A really nice place to stop before or after a game in Cincinnati -...More

I was at the Brio for an early supper this past summer. I was so hot from walking and shopping, it was so pleasant to come into such a beautiful atmosphere, have a cool drink with friends, and stay for a delicious supper.

For lunch, I had a lobster, shrimp risotto. This meal was solid, but it was not bursting with the flavor I expected. I would recommend this restaurant, but it is not an intense or passionate recommendation.

We had a good meal here. Two of three really liked it and the dessert was great! We would repeat a meal here.

I had the Pasta alla Vodka. The spiciness I like. Excellent. My wife had the Pasta Pesto. I finished hers, also excellent. Shared a great tiramisu. My second visit from out of town.

Food was very good; service was excellent. Would definitely put this on my list to frequent again. There is a gluten-free menu which was helpful to members of our party.

The restaurant had beautiful decorations and was designed for top service. The food was OK for Italian. The creme brulee was delicious. The lasagna was only two layers and the flavor was good, but nothing over the top. The menu is kind of pricey for...More

I ate there for the first time on July 5, 2018. I ordered a chicken, vegetable and mashed potato dish that was out of this world. The roasted carrots were the best I've ever tasted. I'm not crazy about carrots, but I really liked these....More

We have not had the bread and olive oil. I am familiar with this at other restaurants, but that has not been my experience at Brio's. They have warm bread, crackers (more like sesame pita crackers) and butter.
