Bravo has great pastas and amazing pizza. The service is great and the ambiance is nice. Try the penne vodka or any of the speciality pizzas.
After a lifetime of authentic and abundant Italian dining in New Jersey it was difficult to duplicate the experience in South Florida. In miami and Fort Lauderdale many restaurants attempt Italian fare with ketchup-like marinara sauce and pizziaria menus. But Bravo on 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale has a fantastic menu, fresh ingerdients (which really make all the difference), great chefs and a cordial and efficient staff. I felt as if I were back home again. Bravo attire is casual but neat (no cheezy undershirts and cutoff shorts, please). Bravo is also conveniently located near the beach, hotels and nightlife.
