We have been going to Bruno's for years - consistently delicious! Great service, the brothers, Bruno and Bass are friendly and very nice. The food is delicious, my son loves the gnocchi! I have been comparing tiramisu around the world, and have yet, to find a better one!

The dining room is comfortable with tables and large booths. A company Holiday party was in progress and didn't really disturb other diners. Bruno's is BYOB and... More

We drove right past it because it's on a strip mall. That threw me off but they have great reviews therefore I was willing to give it chance.

Went here for a business lunch, at a colleague's suggestion. Varied menu, with many good choices. I got it down to cajun shrimp or crab cakes, and the water said they were both good, so I opted for crab cakes. In the meantime, they served a decent house salad and good Italian bread with butter. The crab cakes, well, I'd... More

Just wrapped up a celebratory family supper here, my first time in the restaurant. My food was easily the best meal I've had in months. We were early but the restaurant was filling up quickly. Clearly this is a popular place and for good reason. The service was great, they have a passion for what they do and it shows... More

Clearly a neighborhood favorite with many repeat customers. We started with the grilled calamari with the Fradiavolo marinara sauce. Calamari was a little chewy but the sauce was dynamite. I had the chicken Francese which was excellent; my wife had the tile fish, the special, which she thoroughly enjoyed.
