We happened upon Bruno's about 6 months ago and keep coming back for the excellent service and delicious, authentic Italian food. Their veal parm is the best I ever had anywhere. My husband is crazy about their lasagna. And their Italian Margarita is great.

This was our first visit to Bruno's and it won't be our last. We enjoyed a wonderful meal reasonably priced with great service. The owner came over to see how the food was and visited with us. I would highly recommend Bruno's.

Outstanding meal with friends. We were looking for a neighborhood place near our friends daughters apartment and saw the great reviews on Open Table. They were right, well worth the visit. Owner waited on us and hustled as much as his staff, impressive. We’ll be back!

Wait staff is excellent. Food is always delicious and freshly prepared. Our server was Brad for the evening. He was attentive, friendly and accommodated our requests. Bruno's is our "go to" restaurant for an Italian meal.

Dinner with friends, all 4 meals were excellent. The minestrone soup, which came with the entree, you can have a nice salad if you wish, was very good. So much food that we all took 1/2 Home for another meal and could not have dessert. Great specials every night, esp. if you like fish.

We have had the pleasure of dining at Bruno's numerous times with friends. It's a quiet casual venue. The food is always delicious with nightly special creations that I look forward to. The service is very good, though occasionally rushed. Someday I will try a dessert, usually too full to even consider that after one of their meals.

Bruno's is our Go-To Italian restaurant. We've been back on the mainland for four weeks and we'e been to Bruno's three times. We dine here as a couple and it's also become a favorite with our family and friends, who have dined here with us, as well.
Evan is a gem. He doesn't write orders down because he has an impeccable memory!
This restaurant is a delight!

Being from New Jersey, I have a high expection for Italian food. Bruno's is not great Italian food. I had spaghetti and meatballs because I always like to try the pasta. Sorry to say the meal was tasteless. The red sauce needed salt and was in general bland. The meatballs were poor.

Our experience at Bruno's is always superb and overtly delectable. This is the fifth time I've arranged for a dinner with friends and family in which we were all wholly satisfied and in adoration for the food, service and drinks at Bruno's. Such consistency and quality. I couldn't help but to order the veal saltimbocca, a personal favorite and rock star recipe on the menu. Also at the table: osso buco, the chicken parm special, spaghetti and meatballs, and the fettuccine. We were all able to try each other's dishes and they were all 10/10 Would try again. We all did cocktails such as the Italian margarita, enjoyed the sangiovese, and ordered a couple bottles of the sparkles, which I believe was a prosecco. It was a nice, drinkable brut. Overall our dining experience was fine and all of my guests and I are happy to return the next time we're in Denver. I have all my friends and family converted to this place; we will literally drive 596 miles to enjoy this CLASSIC Italian cooking at Bruno's. I truly love the intimate, quiet, cozy ambience. I love how this gem is tucked away in a strip mall next to the dollar store. It is so low key yet just the classiest and absolutely the tastiest. The service is seasoned and they will take good care of you.

Went with the intent of having our Thanksgiving dinner there, but were drawn to the excellence of their Italian menu. Other diners seemed to like the turkey dinner while we were happy with their excellent Veal Marsala and Linguine Carbonara.

We checked nearby restaurants at 6 pm & booked Bruno's at 6:08 for a 6:30 seating. When we arrived, they said we were not on their handwritten list & therefore would not be seated. Bruno's was not managing OpenTable bookings.

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.
