COMMENTS ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT CAN BE POSTED HERE. Full Wine List and Bar Spirits Available. Kids Menu Menu available. This page last updated 04/02/2015 Bravo entered the Knoxville market as a new and fresh concept only to challenge the industry leader Olive Garden.  Bravo had the service and quality Italian style meals to make the challenge.  We originally ranked the two neck to neck but as we aged, so did the restaurants.  Olive Garden continued touting itself for family and friends as Bravo separated itself to comfort the market and alter the menu to meet today's consumption.  Bravo's atmosphere is comfortably decorated with columns, huge Italian style chandeliers, large wall with wine racks and artwork.  The restaurant has an open-floor plan with mainly white table-clothed tables for dining and white paper for those guests that might get a little messy.  Over the years, service went from great to generally fair.  Based on the visits to the restaurant, some slow service has been encountered but most are genuine and helpful.         While initially challenging Olive Garden on our 5-point scale, OG still has a wide advantage but Bravo is a good alternative.  Olive Garden (OG) has a more festive, yet family oriented atmosphere with fair to good service.  Bravo has a more sophisticated upscale atmosphere with decent service.  At OG, all meals are served with garlic bread sticks and a bottomless salad bowl.  I might add that the OG Salad is considered some of the best!!  Bravo salads are extra but the chopped salad is superb. Breadsticks are also absent at Bravo but you do get a shareable roll for dipping in olive oil.  Bravo is a good restaurant which no doubt will try to meet your expectations provided you can't get into Olive Garden or even Carrabba's.  Bravo is also very open to preparing items that may no longer be on the current menu.  If you have a past favorite, ask for it!!  Recent visits to the Bearden Hill restaurant has presented formal table side service and the food has been excellent.  Reservations accepted and recommended.
