The all new Bravo! Cucina Italiana is now open in Rookwood! BRAVO! Cucina Italiana is a “polished casual” restaurant offering classic Italian food amongst the shadows of Roman ruins. The subtitle “Cucina Italiana” means Italian kitchen, in which all cooking is done in full view of the guest, creating the energy of a live theater. BRAVO’s popular entrees include grilled steaks, chops and fresh seafood, as well as flatbreads, pizzas and salads, similar to what one would find in an authentic “ristorante” in Italy.

My mom and I had lunch there a couple of weeks ago right before the restaurant opened. It was fun to go in before it was open to the public and be a part of their training week. We immediately received some of their bread and dipping oil. We were delighted when they brought us calamari as an appetizer. It was so yummy.The calamari was the perfect texture and both of the dipping sauces complimented it well.

My mom ordered a bay scallop pasta special with spinach and artichokes. I ordered the Shrimp Fra Diavolo. Both were delicious.

They brought us samples of two desserts. One was a cannoli dish and the other one was a brownie and peanut butter dish. I cannot describe how delicious they both tasted.

  1. I will order salad, pasta, cheesecake and ample amounts of wine. I will not share with my husband should I choose to take him. And I will leave very happy and stuffed because I love Bravo!
