This place is a hidden gem. No, it's not in Cherry Creek, or in the bustling area of Broadway North of Alameda Avenue, but it is surely worth your visit.

We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, along with some adult beverages while we decided on our dinner. The calamari was crispy, cooked to perfection and seasoned well with flavorful pepperoncini which was well balanced by the marinara. My husband enjoyed a traditional gin martini, while I sipped on a very good Sangiovese.

For dinner, he had the veal parm with spaghetti, and I enjoyed the nightly special of sea bass with angel hair tossed in lemon/caper sauce. Everything was wonderful! We ended up getting the Sangiovese bottle to have along with our dinner.

And, we were not shy about dessert, because we had our excellent server package up half of our dinners to be enjoyed the next day. We had the limoncello marscapone cake, which was light, slightly sweet and slightly tart.

The music they were playing was quite enjoyable, and while we visited on a slower Tuesday evening, the noise level was excellent for our date night conversation.

The cost was quite reasonable. I highly recommend Bruno's!

Considering the virus impact on the dining experience, I think Bruno's is doing quite well in making patrons feel safe enough to come inside. The food (Osso Bucco and a sole dish) were extremely tasty.

The restaurant is unassuming, the location is up and coming, the service is friendly and on point; however, the cuisine was AMAZING. I'm Italian, I travel to Italy sometimes two or three times annually and the authentic food in Termini Sicily (where the Godfather was filmed) has nothing on the chef in this kitchen. My dish (pasta primavera in a white garlic sauce) left me wanting to lick the bowl clean. My manners got the best of me and I reluctantly managed to sop up the remaining delicious sauce with my last slice of bread.

I will be back!

Bruno's is back, and stronger than ever in their new location. The sea bass with broccoli tonite was A+, 5 stars all the way.

Bruno's food is outstanding: tasty, well presented, fresh (or snap frozen on the fishing boat), beautifully prepared and sauced, and innovative. We had clams, sole, osso bucco, and pasta dishes, with Italian wine and beer. We chose to sit outside on the patio, to enhance social distancing, and while at times a bit noisy due to Broadway traffic, it was delightful. Not cheap, but well worth it.

This is a charming space to dine. It is cozy, warm and comfortable, the food is delicious. It reminds me of the old up-scaled Italian restaurants from the 50's and 60's with southern Italian dishes.

I guess everything was good but not spectacular. The restaurant was empty but a few tables filled by the time we left, about 7:30. My friend and I had the ciopinno..it was ok. It had lots of shellfish but no regular fish. Dessert was expensive, $7.95 for the gelato too! It was interesting but with so many good restaurants around, we probably won’t go back.

Very good meal in a nice environment. I had the shrimp Parmigiana which is a personal favorite. My wife had the butternut squash ravioli (February is ravioli month) and loved it. The service was very good as always. We are so glad Bruno’s has reopened.
