  • "We Bruno's when my brother came in for a weekend visit to visit his new online friend. He's from Chicago (home of some of the best Italian restaurants in the country), and he was floored by the choices available at such a hidden spot. Having been a wine salesman, he was blown away by the wine list, and the knowledge of our server. Very generous portions: we all took home lunch for the next day. A real treat!"

  • "This was my first time to Bruno's and the food was great. The pollenta appetizer was amazing. I shared eggplant parmisan and a fetticune with lobster and shrimp. Bother were very good. It's hard to find really good Italian food in the Denver metro area and Bruno's is well worth the visit."

  • "We decided to eat out at the last minute on a Saturday night and Bruno's was able to accommodate us. A friend had recommended this restaurant and we're happy we tried it. The portions were large and service was great. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and my wife ordered the pork shank, both were delicious! We had a few special requests and they were happily created. There is plenty of parking too which makes it a breeze to get to."

  • "We ate here for Valentines Day. It is tucked away in a strip mall and we were very pleasantly surprised. The windows are frosted and create some privacy from the parking lot in front. Atmosphere is contemporary and very comfortable. All of the food we ordered was delicious. Menu is mostly traditional Italian fare. Our appetizer was bruschetta with goat cheese. Good through the last bite! My wife had chicken piccata served on a bed of pasta. It was moist, with lots of flavor. I had ravioli filled with squash in a lemon/olive oil. It was moist and savory. For dessert, we had some type of chocolate mouse cake. Sinfully good! It was dense and rich. Wine list was well rounded and prices were reasonable. All-in-all, we enjoyed our meal here!"

  • "Am pleased to see that they can keep up the quality of the experience with the construction in the shoppingh center. My hope is that soon as the upheaval in the center is over, they will get their vibrant business back. The food is delishous and priced well. We were all happy to go there."

  • "We had 6 people in our party which can be a bit overwhelming. However it seemed our waiter, although VERY kind and professional, was completely overwhelmed and rushed. The linguine with clams and mussels in white sauce was not anything spectacular- not a lot of flavor just very plain. I suppose that's as best expected for the dish. I've had a veal dish before that was fabulous. Overall a good experience, just wished the waiter didn't seem so frazzled. But that being said, of course I will return."

  • "Bruno's was a terrific restaurant under original owners. It is now (and has been for 3 years or so) under new ownership. The experience is even better now. Food is uniquely well prepared and tasty. My wife and I have now been there 3-4 times and will continue to return. We highly recommend it."

  • "We went to Bruno's New Years Eve. Food and service was great and reservation was on time. Bruno's had a good selection of dinners and matched wine for dinner. Wait staff was pleasant and we never felt rushed. The atmosphere of Bruno's is comfortable and you felt like you were in a much more expensive restaurant . Bruno's is a favorite local restaurant for Italian food where you are always comfortable and appreciated."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Bruno's location is hidden from view inside a shopping strip mall on the SW corner of Evans and Monaco. It is worth the effort to search it out. Terrific Italian cuisine in a quiet atmosphere where you can talk to your dining companions without shouting. Fish specials are always outstanding."

  • "Jim was our waiter and was a real pro. Too bad people have to bring their crying children to a restaurant like this. It does effect the experience. A tough situation for you. Thanks for all you do."

  • "I have been twice over the past few months and plan to go back. Great for a family dinner. Prompt good service and lovely food. Nice prices as well."

  • "Bruno's is a great place for a casual evening with friends. The food is reliably good, and sometimes excellent. The tomato broth in a recent ciopino was notably fresh and rich tasting, and the breads were warm and yeasty. Bruno's has become our go-to neighborhood restaurant."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "We had a delightful dinner and are glad to have Bruno's "back" in the neighborhood. They weren't closed, but the construction in the area was not our favorite thing - it all looks great now and will be a regular dining stop for me."
    Dined on 10/31/2013
  • "Good food but dinner salads need improving. Soda pop is off. The carbonation mix is not right. We have been back twice and they have not fixed it. Maybe they should have pop in cans!"
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "We've been dining at Bruno's for many years and have always been pleasantly satisfied with every aspect of our experience. Always feel warmly welcomed, appreciate the great service, and enjoy our meals. Appetizers are great, entrees delicious and the atmosphere is cozy. Bruno's has demonstrated great staying power in light of everything it has endured over the years - from economic downturns to shopping center construction. We encourage everyone to try Bruno's if they have not yet done so and for those that haven't been there in a while GO BACK and for those, like us, who go from time to time, go MORE OFTEN! It's a neighborhood treasure!!!"

  • "I enjoy Brunos usually, but this particular night was forgettable. The food was average."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "The food is always great and you get plenty of it. Our waitress, Jessica, was very good and her "in-training" Jessica, was also good and they were both friendly and helpful."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "Cute quaint decor but the food is seriously lacking. We should have known when the menu arrived complete with several typos and grammatical errors like "shrimps"! They could be booming but they will need the help of someone like Gordon Ramsay to update their menu and improve their recipes."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "The food and service are lovely. Not a high priced out of this world "foodie" place. Easy date-night. Great pace, knowledgable wait-staff and OK wine list. I'll be back."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Nice selection of Italian favorites. Excellent service. The owner was present making sure that everything was as it should be. I had the Veal Marsala and my friend had Raviolis. Both were very good, I can't wait to go back to try some of the other selections. I would recommend this spot to friends and family, it's a neat find."
