Great place!Have been wanting to get to Brando's for a while, but either timing wasn't right or there were no weekend reservations available. Decided to try on a weeknight. Menu was more than expected, lots of options for every taste, all sounding so inviting. Decided on Pappardelle Tuscana and Pork Chop Brando--both outstanding--after the Beggars Purse appetizer, which was delicious! Of course, had to indulge in dessert--Fried Tortoni and Cannoli...with a Bailey's & coffee to top it off. Server was great, not overly attentive (which can be annoying when you're trying to enjoy your dinner), just the right amount of attention! I'm sure it would be worth the wait for a weekend reservation, but the food tastes just as good on a weeknight.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again- excellent!This was our fourth trip to Brando's. And for the fourth time, we were thoroughly impressed! The service, the food, everything was top notch. I have tried something different everytime, and every mean I have had has been fantastic. My wife swears by the "Sunday Gravy," saying it tastes just like her Nona's gravy growing up. That is high praise. We have already recommended Brando's to several friends and co-workers, and everyone that has gone has gone back multiple times. Steve is a great guy, comes to say hello to every table, and Chris Dolan and Dylan Herbert made our experience that much better!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Great !!I have been a customer since it was Carmine's.............always loved it then and now.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulFood was excellent and service impeccable.

Dry aged steak was perfect! We will return5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent PlaceA friend had recommended Brando's to us. I went with my husband and my adult son. To say the least, I was very impressed.
The staff was wonderful. Our waiter Chris was very professional and very knowledgeable. Food can be adjusted to taste.
We all had the seafood. All very fresh and delicious. Dessert was fried tortoni, soooo delicious. Some reviews said it was pricey but I disagree. If you dine out you will know quality food and this is a quality place. Everything was exceptional and I would recommend it to family and friends. In fact, my family and I can't wait to go back.

We could not have been more impressed. The menu was unique and the specials sounded delicious. Try the yellow beet salad as a change. Just a great experience.

Can be a bit noisy near the bar.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTop-Notch Italian Steakhouse!Food was top quality, the BEST filet mignon I've ever had! Nice to see organic/grass fed beef being offered. Great service and ambiance, the bar was a bit crowded which added a bit to the noise, but not so much that it was off-putting. Highly recommended.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
