Part of a chain originating in Columbus, OH, the Des Peres location of Bravo! Cucina Italian sits in the West County Center complex. The restaurant focuses on affordable, family-friendly white-tablecloth dining. Weekday diners can sit at the bar and enjoy "bar bites," Bravo's take on tapas. Weekend brunch offers frittatas, omelets, and French toast stuffed with cream cheese, cinnamon and honey, among other items. Bravo's lunch and dinner choices include bruschetta, fried calamari, pizza, steak, pork chops, seafood and specialty dishes, such as veal Marsala, alongside pasta dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs and the restaurant's "signature dish" - pasta Bravo!, rigatoni with grilled chicken and mushrooms in a roasted-red pepper cream sauce. Younger diners can choose their meal from an extensive kids' menu, while grownups can sip from a large variety of wines. Bravo accepts reservations. Guests can also enjoy the restaurant's large patio.
