I hosted a visitor from Texas this last week, and she found Bruno's on Yelp. It sounded good, so we went. I really loved this part of Brea: a really well-planned area of shops, restaurants and theaters that was attractive and convenient, and still managed to look and feel non-commercial. Bruno's was delightful. My penne al pesto was very good,... More

The weather is hot and you don't want to turn on the oven? You want a quick bite before the movie? You want to meet friends or family at a great, local, reasonable restaurant? The answer to all of your questions is: Bruno's in Brea. I love the seafood linguine, my husband orders old-fashioned spaghetti and meatballs, my son chows... More

We have had dinner there before some years back and frankly speaking were not impressed then and hence few years until this visit. The atmosphere is nice, service is excellent, food section is good and my guest gave a good rating for their food, however my penne pesto was tasteless, there was at least 1/4 inch of oil at bottom...

We have had dinner here several times. This last time we had some friends come with us. They really liked it as well. Nice assortment of Italian dishes, nice atmosphere, nice staff, and nice presentation of food.

We called Bruno's for our camp group of 35 plus. The owner/ manager called me back promptly, and did all they could to accommodate our large group. They made us a reservation, brought in extra staff, and got us in and out within the hour time frame we had. They were also willing to split checks. The food and service... More

I had read about a monthly wine tasting at the restaurant and wanted to check it out. It was easy to make a reservation and the woman taking the information over the phone was very nice - a good first impression. (You can also use Open Table to make a reservation.) The restaurant has doors that fully open onto the... More

Brunos Italian Kitchen in Brea is a great spot. My only complaint is the small portions and prices are high for what you get. Italian restaurants are not supposed to have small portions! Other than that, everything is tasty. The packed house is a reflection of how good everything is.

Bruno's Trattoria is now called Bruno's Italian Kitchen. Maybe that is easier to pronounce. I belong to their VIP Club which entitles a member to getting two complimentary proseccos with your meal plus a free Sunday dinner on your birthday month. You can sign up on line. Bruno's also has nightly special which may be of interest to you. Monday... More
