    We were pleasantly greeted when we arrived and were seated by the window. Food was tasty (veal francese & huge pork chop special) but the service was lacking. Overheard the waitress apologizing to different tables. We were not in a hurry and it was a good thing. We'd try this place again in hopes that it was just an off night for them.

    Our drink order took 15 minutes to arrive, 1/2 hour later our appetizers. Cesear salad (missing anchovies brought as a side) and mussels marinara. The salad was good, the mussels okay. Another 45 minutes and my husband was asked if he wanted another beer. I was drinking wine, my glass also empty. 15 minutes (used Iphone timer) and the beer arrived. My husband asked for a glass of wine and if there was a problem with our dinners. The waiter said the kitchen was busy with appetizers. Three other occupied tables? One hour later dinner the ravioli were overcooked, the gnocchi a dish of garlic in oil and butter. The waiter asked how we like it, we told him the truth. His response, that dish never looks good. What???

    We went last night not quite knowing what to expect. We loved it! The best prosciutto pizza I have ever had...the prosciutto was so fresh and tasty. Atmosphere was very nice. Service was wonderful....our waitress, from Naples Italy, was gracious. We will be going back again for sure....a great find!!

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    I went to this resturant on New Year's Eve because I waited too long to make reservations at a known establishment. The service was awful. It took 1 hour just to get an appetizer that should have taken 5 minutes to cook in the deep fryer. The calamari and zucchini appetizer was good. We waited about another hour to get our entrees. The pasta I had for dinner has potential but was very salty due to their use of cheap prosuitto. The deep fried ice cream seamed like it was coated with pancake batter....yuck! I will NEVER go back. The tables siting on both sides of me were also upset and said that they would not go back. The worst part was the place was nearly empty so there was no reason for the slow service.

    Casa Brusco was almost empty on this past Thursday night for an early dinner. It's a large place to fill, though! The salmon was over-cooked and over-salted, a shame. The pizza was good, and the one dish we really liked was the octopus in tomato-based herb sauce with beans. Very healthy and tasty... Service is warm and friendly, and we'll have to try the pastas next time..

    My wife and I must have passed by this restaurant 50 times before we made a reservation. This place never looked crowded so we assumed that it couldn't be that good. When we saw it was a 1,000 point reservation we thought we would give it a try. Boy was I wrong! This place was a hidden gem. The ambience was a nice surprise, the service was great and the food was even better. The food was very authentic Italian but watch out - it's a very spicy.

    Since there were only two families in the restaurant, the service was great. My husband loved his meal, but I (who love salty food) found the linguine very salty. It was very quiet (for the the above reason) but the other family had a child crying through half the meal. I will go back here during a normal weekend and check out he noise and the food.

  • A bad neighborhood restaurant.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/22/2013
    The restaurant was practically empty, and we soon found out why. The bread - both kinds that were served, did not taste good. We were uncertain whether it was stale or simply not a variety we thought had a good taste. I had a pinto grigio and it was below par for a house wine. My husband and I shared a caesar salad, which was ordinary but OK. He had salmon, which he said tasted all right, but looked bright orange. I ordered veal piccata and I couldn't eat it. Not only was it over-cooked, but the sauce had a funny taste - as though it had been made with bad oil. At that point, I gave up and simply waited until I got home to get something more to eat. I understand now why the place was so empty. I will not go back.

    They say that Mother's Day is the worst day of the year to take your family out: impossible reservations, limited menus, harried staff. None of that this past Mother's Day at Casa Brusco. We were greeted warmly and had a pleasant, relaxed meal. Great food, well prepared and properly paced. My dad even ate all of his pasta (a rarity these days). Thanx for a great day!

    We had booked our Mother's day lunch here based on what was still available on OT with such late notice (Friday night) and this is what we found. It was great cause we had the whole place to ourselves pretty much the whole 1st hour or so. Each Mom was given a rose and we had wait staff attending to us exclusively. The food was VERY good!! Delicious! Loved the fact they offer both a Mother's day menu and the regular menu so you had choices. My husband and I will certainly return here as the food and service was very good. It got very busy as we were leaving but the service remained in tacked, so I don't have any worries on that front. The food was really good. Service + Food = successful restaurant. :)
