I have been coming to Bravo Cucina for years, mainly at lunchtime due to the fast service during my lunch hour.
I recently had out of town guests with small children and we decided to come in for dinner. I was more than satisfied with our experience and service. The waiter who served us was fantastic. He knew the menu inside and out and was able to assist us in finding a bottle of wine that would compliment all the meals ordered.
After dinner, we decided to order a few desserts for the table (tira misu, cannoli's, chocolate cake and my personal favorite the profiterole). My friends are still raving about these desserts a week later.
After this, I no longer think of Bravo Cucina as a great lunch place on the Promenade, but it is now my favorite restaurant in Santa Monica. I will definately return for dinner...maybe tonight.
Pros: exceptional service, incredible food, delicious desserts
