    Always a special evening when my wife an I go to Brunellos. This night I had the veal Marsala and my wife had a beautifully crafted pizza. Words can’t describe how delicious the pizza and especially the veal Marsala was. Everything was amazing. Service was amazing too. The family run restaurant where they always remember you. You are welcomed by. “welcome back”. That starts the meal off on a very positive note. Thanks you again.

    Amiable Italian venue features one of the last places I know of serving fresh bread hot out of the oven at no cost. Among the usual Italian menu suspects there are a few unusual dishes. I had a pasta and potato dish in which you grate your own Parmesan cheese. It was nothing to look like but a real treat. The prices are a notable step lower than normal for a restaurant of this quality but the real star of the evening was the service; friendly, relaxed and very attentive. Recommended.

    I love dining at Brunello Trattoria! The food is ALWAYS delicious and artfully presented. Brunello Trattoria is a family run restaurant. It is an inspiration to see how a family can work together with such harmony and create such perfection. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. When you dine at Brunello Trattoria it feels like you are dining with old family friends! The whole experience is lovely.

    Another fabulous experience here!! Exceptional service (thanks again Brunello) and food quality! We had an off-menu salmon bowtie pasta in a cream sauce that was unbelievable and a pizza Rustica. The outstanding tiramisu and cappuccino was the perfect end to the perfect meal! Love to support this charming family-run restaurant!

    We had made a reservation for 730 on a Thursday evening and we are promptly seated on our arrival. The owner came over to our table and explained the special appetizers and main courses that were available. There were many wonderful choices to choose from so we picked two main courses, a salad and a half order of another main course, which the owner was kind enough to make for us. The food was plentiful and also quite delicious. The Caesar salad was easily large enough for the two of us, and our tiramisu dessert was also big enough for two. We will definitely come back here.

    Delicious, authentic food with wonderful Italian charm. The host is friendly and jovial. Every bite from the Antipasto Della Casa to the Pear sorbet was absolutely fantastic. Love the Potato Artichoke soup, which was on special. And of course, the pastas and Ossobucco were fabulous. Wine was tasty and of good value. Highly recommend!
