Service was fine, they were a little short but still not a problem. Bread was good, soup was good also. Salad was weird/different but ok. We ordered 2 apps, first was the fried calamari which was probably the worst I have ever had, it was in strips, over breaded and very rubbery. It’s was so bad that the table next to us complained it and asked to see a manager. The guest was pretty rude at it though, I agreed with him it was bad however he should have went about it in a better way. Second app was fried mozzarella which were just ok. Now to dinner, my girlfriend ordered a seafood pasta which sounded AMAZING on the menu, I think it was called Something Different anyway it was HORRIBLE, the sauce was clumpy and the shrimp and or scallops smelled and tasted extremely fishy. Needless to say she did not go pass 3 or so bites. I had Lasagna which was supposed to be a Specialty there, it was a 3 or 4 out of 10. I was so excited about this place, I had read so many wonderful reviews and my girlfriend LOVES Italian food, she told one bite of her pasta a whispered to me “ We Will Not Be Coming Back Here!!! “ I hope that sums up how terrible the food was. I’m sorry too because I really wanted to like this place.

Our waiter was busier on his cellphone than with customers. Many times we had to ask another server to get our server. Our server was more concerned with his cellphone than with our service.

Very poor service. We had a reservation they weren’t even busy and we had to wait 20 minutes and they did not even realize that we were the ones with the reservation. They brought out 30 glasses for water. We asked to replace them and had to wait 20 minutes to get new ones because they said they didn’t have any clean ones. The food was Very salty. Horrible experience overall. Would definitely not go back or recommend this place

Thought there would be indoor dining - outside was a bit cold. A little on the pricey side but food is amazing. Our waiter (wish I remembered his name) was super amazing and friendly.

I am a fan of neighborhood gems and this is one. The food tastes homemade. The complete meal is the way to go. And, the wine by the glass is like they serve it in the family restaurants in Italy - a decent pour - not like the three to four sips that other restaurants pour. Really happy to have found this spot.

Everything about this places is amazing... the food, service, and ambience of it all. It’s a really low key spot and great Italian food with some great servers/hostess making you feel comfortable.

We really enjoyed our Broginos experience. They have done a marvelous job with their outdoor dining. I appreciate the very kind service amidst a busy night. The food portions were awesome and the quality was a 10 on the dope dial. We will definitely be coming back here when we are back in R Beach.

The big re opening after 2 months on lockdown ...
masks all around and distanced at the table, the tent had heaters installed and it was almost a full house early on Saturday.
Waiting staff friendly and attentive to us and other diners.
Food and wine consistent as always.

Even during the pandemic, Broginos came through well. Ratings for things like ambiance could have been less, but, come on, we're in a parking lot. they dressed it up nicely. they always serve good size portions. And, while trying to keep my balance, in a chair on rocky pavement, heading down a driveway, I enjoyed my meal. Also, our waiter, Oscar, was attentive, friendly, and gets 5 stars.

Service was HORRENDOUS- extremely rude, slow, never came back except to bring the check. We wanted to support a local business but we will NOT be going back. Ridiculous

This review was written with COVID-19 restrictions in place. Mandated al fresco dining off Artesia Boulevard is a sound challenge, but not overly untolerable. Adequate social distancing was observed. Dinner was tasty enough to plan a return. Grateful to support small local business and this includes staff.

They have done a nice job with their outdoor dining! Our waiter the night we were there was fun but not attentive service wise. The other waiter had to pick up slack for him. I would not let it deter us from going again though

The ambience outside is great. The food was better than I remembered as it's been some time since our last visit. We already talked about going back. Our server, while very attentive and personable, needs to do better with his mask. All other staff I saw were 100%. A bit surprised that they haven't converted to paper menus.

Amazing food. Seemed our waiter was a bit overwhelmed because he didn't check on us but once.
Besides that the food was so good.

We enjoyed the food once we were served. The food took an hour after ordering. The waiter was apologizing to other people for taking so long for the food to be served along with our party of 3. I would return because I did enjoy the dinner but they really seem to be understaffed and need to be more attentive with a host greeting people as they arrive. We had to search for someone.

Arrived 5 minutes prior to reserved time. Was not even approached by a host or waiter for 20 minutes.
Once seated, received bread, no water.
Waited 30 minutes for a waiter to approach our table, but to no avail. So, we walked out. Not sure they even noticed.
