Brio is an Italian chain, but one of those chains that is consistently delicious... as well as consistently expensive. What keeps me coming back (and not even very often I might add) is the best risotto that I have ever had. The sweet potato risotto is a must have. Make sure to add mushrooms to make it even more delicious than it already is. What comes in it you ask? Asparagus, pine nuts, sweet potatoes, mushrooms (if you get them), parmesan, and a little bit of magic. It's pretty darn good. This is pricey but you will have leftovers too! Everything else on the menu just seems too expensive to come here on the regular.
Giving you a taste of what I taste. From gourmet to everyday. No pretentious bull - just good food.
