  • "Bruno's is consistently good...we go for dinner pretty regularly and will continue. The wait staff is always professional and friendly and the owner always takes the the time to come out and chat which is appreciated ....last but not least the food is great!"

  • "The food, ambiance and service were all very good. Had the veal marsala and my wife had a shrimp dish. Everything was cooked appropriately and was tasty. The shrimp were fresh and not overcooked. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The ambiance was low key and quiet. Would definitely go there again."

  • "We really enjoy Bruno's. It's so nice to have a good, relaxing meal in a gracious space where you can actually have a conversation with each other without shouting. The food is good; the service efficient and gracious; the ambiance very warm and pleasant. The prices are also reasonable as well. It is in a strip mall setting, but once you are in the door, Bruno's provides a very pleasant experience. We had our anniversary dinner there last week, but have eaten there several times over the last year."

  • "This is what dining out should be. The food was excellent as was their service. Reasonably priced menu that INCLUDED salad, versus everything being extra. Was very enjoyable. Definitely found a new go-to place. Had the saltimboca and gnocchi. Like my grandma made. Very authentic. Hats off to the chef and owner for a job well done!"

  • "Nick did something most restaurateurs never want to do...help someone leave his restaurant. My 88 year old mother-in-law had just returned to CO from sea-level and we took her to dinner at Bruno's to celebrate. She wasn't feeling good at the beginning, but became more ill as we ordered our meals (her health is not the greatest). We decided we needed to go without eating and take her to the hospital. The entire staff was very helpful and understanding...they even packed our meals to go! We stopped at home, thinking a little oxygen might be in order, and stored the food. When we got home at 1:30 am my wife and I sat and enjoyed our wonderful meals! p.s. Mom came home 3 days later, doing fine. Thanks Nick and staff! You are the best!!"

  • "I had not been to Bruno's in 7 or 8 years, and had forgotten how much I like this place. It is a quite a few miles away, and there are equivalent restaurants around my home, but if you are ever in SE Denver, and want to try a different restaurant, Bruno's is worthy of your consideration. The really good.... Service was outstanding. The wait staff was available and helpful. At no time did we feel like we were being rushed. The good.... Food was above average. Portions were adequate for the price point. Sauces had nice flavors and everything was cooked properly The not quite so good. Limited, and relatively expensive (based on the quality) wine list. I would have expected more varied Italian choices, at more representative prices"

  • "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!"

  • "Bruno's = Great Food, Great Service, A Good Wine list, and while limited, it is also VERY reasonable in pricing! Nutshell: We'll be bringing our family here for a family dinner with kids, grandkids and great-grandparents! What a fun place!!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "Bruno's was always a great place, been away for 5 years and so happy to see that things only got better!!! Great Food, Friendly Service, Good Ambiance all make for a Wonderful Experience. Ready to go back soon!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
