Bravo – Italian Restaurant In The Mercato

After a hard day at the office I love to walk through the Mercato to Bravo Cucina Italiana and relaxbravo-italian-restaurant-in-naples-florida-at-mercado on their outdoor patio for happy hour.  As everyone who reads my blogs know I love happy hour and there isn’t a more beautiful spot to relax and enjoy the ambience of Mercato and wonderful food.

From 3:30 to 6:30 Monday through Friday, Bravo offers $4 to $6 beverages and Bar Plates in their bar and on their patio.  There is no struggling for a table as even the patio is arranged seating, so although you may have to wait for a while, you will get a table as soon as it is your turn.

The Bar Plates are delicious and I find them plenty for an early dinner.  One of my favorites is themercato chicken, bacon and spinach flatbread for $5.00.  It is loaded with ingredients and very yummy.  Recently we met some friends there and they tried the Crispy Shrimp Napoli and I must say I may be tempted next time!  Fried shrimp with green onions and a charred tomato sauce for $6.00.  Definitely worth a try next time.

It is wonderful to sit outside and enjoy the people watching on the main street of the Mercato.  In February when we were there the temperature dipped to 70 degrees so some of the customers asked for the patio heaters to be turned on!  Only2014-02-10 17.59.18 in Naples Florida but the servers did as they were asked and took care of the customers.

On Wednesdays they offer $5 martinis in the bar area and Thursdays they have a wine special in the bar.  Always a good excuse to sit outside after a day at the office and relax with a drink and watch the world go by.

A very short walk will bring you to the Silverspot Cinema where you can enjoy first run movies in silverspotplush lounge chairs.  You can also take wine or drinks into the theatre here to enjoy while you watch the movie.

The Mercato is a great place to work and has plenty of after hour activities to keep us busy.  Happy hour at Bravo is definitely one of my favorite choices.

Remember it is always toasty in Naples and you deserve your piece of Naples sunshine and some outdoor relaxing!
