This place is amazing. The minestrone needed a little more flavor but if you eat some of the garlic from the bread and then the soup it’s perfect. The meal was light but fulfilling. Pasta was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was calm but people were enjoying their tables. My first time here and I will definitely be back soon.

Dined last night at Bruno's for the first time. Service was excellent and the decor and atmosphere was great! You can tell the soups and sauces are made fresh. I had the Veal Piccata and it was very good.

Let me tell you about this place! Don’t judge a book by its cover goes for Bruno’s. My family was slightly worried due to the pictures on line. Please forgive us for our judgement! Bruno’s is now our number 1 spot.

It was like visiting old friends! We used to go to Bruno's when it was on Monaco, but our reason for being in that part of Denver went away. Then there was Covid and we didn't go much of anywhere. By accident, we learned that Bruno's had relocated to south Denver and we decided to try it with a friend who had just moved to the area. The decor is a bit different, but the food, service and overall family feeling is still there. On this occasion we ordered Veal Parm (with an outstanding pasta Giardino!), carbonara (my wife) and chicken scampi (our friend), all washed down with a variety of mixed drinks, wine and beer. Everything was authentic and delicious. It was good to see Nick again and, as usual, our server (Angel) was attentive, without being intrusive. We're already looking forward to our next visit - when we'll bring a couple family members from the Springs.

Food not what I remembered pre-Covid. The polenta, which had been excellent was average. Main dishes OK and plentiful. Dessert good. The wine list is pitiful. Hardly any even decent Italian wines. I wonder if I could bring my own to dinner.
Noise level intense.

I’ve eaten at Bruno’s twice in two weeks. The food is great and reasonably priced. This week I had the polenta appetizer which was very generous and the shrimp pasta special on my first visit and loved it.Best of all, the restaurant is quiet enough that you can actually carry on a conversation.

I had the spinach ravioli with marinara and it was delicious! My husband had the salmon and it was good until he got to the middle, then it was raw. The restaurant did fix it. They offered a new piece of salmon and took it off the bill. I will go back!

Our first visit to Bruno's. The food was excellent, and reminded my spouse of her Italian grandmother's cooking (a real compliment!). The waiter and chef kept up with a Tuesday night full house. It was delightful to eat in a place filled with lively conversations. We'll go again, and recommend it strongly. It's great to see it doing well in its new location.
