Bravo Pizzeria is a small pizza and sandwich joint that does brisk business with the Santa Monica beach crowd. We've never tried it, but since it's owned by the Bravo Cucina folks who serve the best mushroom ravioli around, I figured their food won't disappoint.
D. and I decided to try their delivery service one weekend. We didn't feel like pizza so we ordered paninis, instead. I chose the Turkey Montebello with smoked turkey, roasted peppers, provolone cheese and organic pesto on homemade panini bread. The sandwich was huge and bursting with filling, every bite a hearty blend of smoky, tangy and spicy flavors that went well together. Since it came with a generous helping of counry style fries, the sandwich was quite a bargain at $8.95.
D. ordered the caprese panini with homemade mozarella, marinated tomatoes, green salad and balsamic vinaigrette on homamade. This one was a total letdown; for starters, they completely forgot the marinated tomatoes.
I was like, are you kidding me?! A caprese isn't a caprese without tomatoes! There was also hardly any vinaigrette in the green salad, which made for a very dry sandwich. Without the tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette, the sandwich was downright ridiculous at $8.95, even with the fries.
Good thing we also ordered a couple of their chocolate dipped cannolis for dessert. At $4.25 each, they somewhat made up for the mixed panini experience.
