The newest BRAVO! Cucina Italiana is now open at the Beavercreek Mall at Fairfield Commons. Front and center to the newly designed entrance, BRAVO is hard to miss. But, does the food meet the standards of food lovers?
BRAVO is known for the homemade pastas, roasted chops, specialty steaks and wood-fired pizzas. But, it’s not just the food that makes this grille a fantastic place to mingle, inside and outside. BRAVO! Cucina Italiana, meaning, “Italian Kitchen” strives to offer the best of Italian food to all patrons.
BRAVO! had a soft opening for lunch on January 25 and officially opened on January 28. BRAVO!s is known as an upscale affordable atmosphere and fresh, made-to-order, authentic Italian menu.
When you visit, you can expect BRAVO!’s classic Italian menu by head chef, Ben Draughn to be served amongst the shadows of Roman ruins and all cooked in a kitchen in full view of the guests, 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.
To celebrate the opening of the new restaurant with the community, BRAVO! will be working closely with Dayton Children’s Hospital to donate a portion of proceeds earned during the week celebration. This endeavor is important to BRAVO!, as Dayton Children’s Hospital is an pillar in the community.
The interior transports visitors from Beavercreek to the heart of the Venetian paradise and the walls into an Italian home. With its hand-crafted Italian mosaics, plastered walls and arches, and fine marble countertops, visitors will feel right at home. This location offers a wonderful patio area, with a fully stocked bar, which was designed to enhance get-togethers and celebrations.
