In my opinion, this is one of the best Italian restaurants in the Diablo Valley area (East Bay) of San Francisco. The interior is seductive and gorgeous. The service is great (our server was Miriam). The menu is extensive and the food is always excellent (we have been here 4 or 5 times). On this visit three of us had the special of stuffed salmon. The salmon was stuffed with halibut, shrimp, and lobster. It was incredibly tasty. The fourth person has an entrée salad that was also delicious. The chocolate fondant dessert was mouth-watering good as was the tiramisu. Prices are reasonable.

Have been a frequent visitor to the Bistro since it opened. The food is delicious, beautifully presented and very plentiful. The atmosphere is romantic and employs a pianist which makes the the evening even more special.

Been going to Brava Bistro since it opened. In January the mother of one of the owner/chef came from Casablanca, Morocco and cook and entire 4 course dinner Prix fix at $45. From soup to dessert it was wonderful! They had a few artful belly dancers to entertain throughout the meal. Their regular menu is outstanding and a great full bar to boot!

The servers were very attentive and did a good job of helping us select our entrees based on what we were looking for. The food was good and the portion sizes adequate. If you are looking for Italian in the Concord area this is a good choice.

I called for reservations at 5PM for a reservation at 6:30 on a Saturday night, for 6 adults, one four-year old, and an infant. They accommodated us and we found a special table set up when we arrived. I would say that the restaurant is kid-friendly. The owners are Miriam and Yousef El Jacifi. The lovely Miriam took great care of us, taking our orders personally and making sure the wait staff attended every need. The menu prices were quite reasonable, running $16-20 for the (a la carte) entrees. We had the bruscheta and calamari appetizers, which were delicious. I had the lamb shanks, which were also delicious, and the portions were large. I also liked the roasted vegetables which came with the lamb shanks. At the end of the meal, everyone had completely cleaned their plates, so kudos to the chef Habib El Jacifi. We also enjoyed the zinfandel and the sangiovese red wines. There was a piano player; I had hoped for a softer George Winston-like sound, but he was quite a bit louder than that. His selection of music was good though.
