Bruno's Italian Bistro Ratings and Reviews
The quality of food preparation was very poor. The filet mignon served was actually sliced in half horizontally so that, according to the waiter, the "chef" could tell whether it was cooked medium-rare as requested. The ravioli was pasty and smothered in a salty sauce. The only good news about the meal was the house salad that contained reasonably fresh greens.
Fantastic restaurant... not very large, so it lends itself to a quiet, familial atmosphere. Food exceptional--the salads were crisp and cold using the freshest blend of lettuces, and not drowning is dressing. Appetizer and entrees are authentic, and freshly prepared (we heard the chefs pounding the veal in the kitchen). Wait staff both knowledgeable and attentive. This restaurant will become a regular or ours. Highly recommend it!
Waitperson was very good-tried to take our antipasto plate too soon
Chiapino was good, but not the best I have had. Sauce too much like thin spaghetti sauce. Need more to eat-needs some simple white fish.
Sea Bass had too many potatos-looks American, not Italian
I really wanted to like it, but... Started off ordering drinks - apparently the server was the "bartender" and did not know how to make an Old Fashioned (basic bartentending 101), nor did he know how to make an espresso-tini (which was on their drink menu). Bread was dry, borderline stale. Entrees came out very fast - too fast to have been cooked fresh. My wife had chicken parm - very thin cutlet, no seasoning, sauce was ok. Pasta on the side came with a pesto sauce, also just ok. I had "lasagna" the likes of which I've never seen before. It came on a plate looking like something out of a can - it was clearly not layered and baked, it was simply a pile of ingredients. Flavor was marginal. Bottom line - drinks were bad, food was bad, servers genuinely seemed like they were trying.
Service is always great. The bread and the garlic oil are always outstanding. We ordered the special, penne with chicken and sausage in a creamy marinara sauce. Nice flavor but way too much sauce. We'll be back but we'd probably order something else or ask for 1/4 the sauce!
We have been several times over the years. Overall, Bruno's is a consistently great Italian Restaurant with wonderful food and interesting choices. Fairly priced, and service is always top-notch. We also appreciate that it is small, not over-stimulating, and quiet enough for conversation...unlike so many others.
Excellent, from the service to creative dishes and ambiance! I had the special, a white fish, atop angel hair pasta with capers, and a light cream sauce. My boyfriend had traditional rigatoni with sausage. Excellent top notch service, professionalism in the waiter staff and the owner Nick paid us several visits to check on us. A definate place to recommend and restaurant to revisit!!!
