We have quite a few Italian restaurants here on the Space Coast.
Over the years we have had a large influx in people who have moved to the Space Coast from the Northeast. Along with them comes the taste for New York style Italian food.
Brano's Italian Grill has opened their second location here (the original is in Cocoa Beach) in Indian Harbour Beach (The exact location is 1940 Hwy A1a, Indian Harbour Beach, FL 32937).
Brano's has good food and some nice daily specials, but what will make them stand out is the large outdoor patio that is a wonderful spot for enjoying our awesome Space Coast weather. With a location that is right across from the beach on A1a, and its proximity to shopping, condos and high end neighborhoods...Brano's should have no problem surviving a glut of Italian restaurant competition.
The menu lends towards both northern and southern Italian favorites. Nothing really stands out as a must have, but the variety of seafood and pasta dishes should please most pallets.
My recommendation: come a little early and grab a glass of red wine out on the deck. Add a couple of appetizers (my favorites are the Mussels Arrabiata and the Sesame Seared Tuna) and enjoy the ocean breeze on one of the nicest outdoor decks in the area!
