Upscale, Affordable Restaurant Serves Authentic, Northern Italian Cuisine

BRIO (meaning “lively” or “full of life”) is an upscale, affordable restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. It brings the pleasure of the Tuscan country villa to the American city. The subtitle, “Tuscan Grille,” is descriptive of the menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, seafood, made-to-order pastas, flatbreads and entrée salads, similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO also offers an ample dessert menu, full wine list and cocktail book. BRIO’s motto is fashioned after the Tuscan philosophy of “To eat well, is to live well.”
By opening the restaurant in CityPlace, BRIO is creating 90 full- and part-time jobs, including assistant managers, sous chef, prep/line cooks, wait staff, dishwashers, hosts/hostesses and bartenders.

Additional offerings at BRIO at CityPlace will be the Bellini Brunch, available Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m.–3:30 p.m.; and the $3.95 Tuscan Taster bar menu, which will feature standouts such as Shrimptini (shrimp cocktail), Beef Carpaccio, BRIO Burger, and much more! The Tuscan Taster menu, available in the bar only, will be available Monday–Friday from 3–6:30 p.m. and Monday–Thursday from 9 p.m. until closing.
Every Wednesday, in the bar, guests will enjoy $5 Martini Night for select martinis from 4 p.m.–closing.
