With its location along Beach Drive, it offers a hip yet affordable contemporary Italian menu that leans heavily on wood-fired pizzas (note especially the one with the fried egg on top) and boldly flavored and rustic pastas. Sidewalk seating expands the seating options, and a lively bar keep it among downtown's most active nighttime scenes.
The bar scene: Definitely a must-stop for those seeking a great place to visit with friends for happy hour or to share a cocktail before hitting a concert. Bartenders are knowledgeable and are brimming with ideas for assorted specialty drinks. In its new space, the horseshoe-shaped bar has become the focal point of BellaBrava. It offers a cozy setting for dining there as you catch a game on one of the flat-screen TVs dotting the high walls. Already, regulars are claiming different tables along the bar's southern wall -- perfect spots for people watching or saying hi to friends as they head back to dinner.
