BellaBrava Restaurant Review

: BellaBrava’s expanded space and a chef change in the kitchen are spicing things up. The Italian cuisine features familiar preparations like pastas, pizzas and panini, but they are always creative. Ask about the specials, too. Typically, the lunch menu includes appetizers such as white bean hummus (wood-fired with cracked olives, rosemary and chili oil) or oven-baked goat cheese with a pomodoro sauce. Entrées are definitely business-lunch-appropriate, with a handful of options such as the Americano burger served with wood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and red onion. Trattoria fish ‘n' chips is a nice touch: Peroni beer-battered cold-water haddock, accompanied by herbed fries and lemon caper tartar sauce.
