About BRAVO!

Bringing an extraordinary dining experience to Jackson for over twenty years

BRAVO! is one of those rare places that has all the elements to become not just another great restaurant, but your personal favorite that you return to again and again. The hearty Italian food is delicious, the wine superb, and the decor sublime, but what sets BRAVO! apart is the service and warm atmosphere. High class, but not stuffy. Relaxed and welcoming, but polished. And not a white tablecloth in sight. This is fine dining without the attitude.

BRAVO! is a beloved Jackson tradition. We have laughed, we have cried, and have shared countless moments with our guests.We love being a part of our guests’ lives and are honored that so many have called BRAVO! “home” over the years. BRAVO! is in the memories you make here with us. We look forward to continuing that tradition with you for many more years to come.

“BRAVO! is more than a restaurant. It is an extraordinary experience.”

–Jeff Good, Co-Owner

Our mission statement says it all: “BRAVO! is more than a restaurant. It is an attitude of excellence. We source the finest raw ingredients, prepare them by hand, using creative, original recipes and time-honored processes, and serve attractive, flavorful creations to our guests with confidence and grace. We uphold a company culture which celebrates and rewards personal excellence and collaborative effort. We are committed to a culture of guest care and service to others. We always strive to do the right thing.”
