food was very good The waitress never hurried us and we had a very nice dinner. One thing that could have been better was Being seated adjacent to a very loud foursome who were in the bar. There were several open tables and I was not really interested in the year infections they talked about or their golf game. Be prepared to spend some money, martini's are$12 and while there are some20+ entrees, they can get pricey 38+...the food was outstanding but 2 of us had total of 2 martini's and1 glass of house wine , 1 app, sweet potato ravioli, and 2 entrees, pork chop with polenta and braised short rib, very good and potato chip encrusted haddock, delicious The bill was $109+ + $20 tip. I would go back, but I would ask for Better seating.

A delightful experience!!
First time visiting Brutole and we were pleasantly surprised! We were greeted and seated at the bar for a cocktail before dinner and had a great martini. The shrimp cocktail was the best ever !! Our meals were delicious and the atmosphere in the restaurant was enjoyable and fun. The wine list extensive and reasonably priced. We will definitely come back with friends! A real gem!

Very nice find...
I heard some good things about this restaurant so decided to take my wife for our anniversary (actually, it turned out she had a couple of gift vouchers that we never used). The restaurant is a little hard to find since it is a little off Route 1 northbound, but there were still a good number of people there. However, it was still fairly quiet. Our server was quite attentive and everything came out nicely. The food was excellent... however, the lobster in my wife's lobster ravioli was slightly over-cooked, although she is more used to seafood being more on the raw side. Yet, the beef was perfectly cooked and the polenta cake was very nice. The coating on the calamari was nice and light. Overall, it is a great time.

As usual, Brutole was a great
As usual, Brutole was a great dining experience. Service was wonderful, food was expertly prepared and presented, and flavorful. Not a huge wine list, but enough selections to satisfy eveyone. The only minor complaint is that the menu offerings haven't changed years. While variety is good, it's been the same for a long time. Changes/additions are needed.

We have dined here several times, and have never been disappointed. The service is attentive,without being overbearing.
I always order the salmon, and it is served hot and flavorful. Any requests are met, and nothing seems to be too difficult to please the diner. All in all, a wonderful dining experience, and a definite return visit.

Do try Brutole!
We've been coming to Brutole for years and have always been pleased. As I don't eat red meat ( plenty of choices for those that do), I appreciate the fish and pasta offerings (my favorite is their salmon). Andre graciously helps us with our wine choices and will suggest new ones for us to try with our meal. Appetizers and desserts are always delectable- if you are really hungry, as the portions are quite ample. Brutole is not a large space- so it's worth reserving your table: there a 2 large seating areas though for your holiday gathering. There's plenty of parking for your group. We dine at Brutole often but it always feels special.

Great North Shore Dining Spot
We had a 6 person dinner here. The restaurant has quiet sections, the service was very good with our waiter present when needed but not when unneeded. The food was uniformly good and we look forward to our next visit.

Wonderful celebration dinner
We were treated like royalty by Andre, Lincoln and the entire staff. The food and wine were just marvelous and although the restaurant is in a suburb the ambiance was high end Boston all the way. We plan to return often.
