We went to Bruno's for restaurant week. This was our first time there. We LOVED it - the service, the food. Will definitely be back!!!!

We had a delicious meal at Bruno's for Restaurant Week! Everything tasted fresh and authentic! Our family of 4, including 2 teenagers, loved it all! We sat on the patio but the inside looked cute! Highly recommend!

My husband & I went for Restaurant Week. Sadly, the only appetizer offered contained shrimp which my husband is allergic to. I had the Sea Bass which was super delicious! My husband had the Mushroom Ravioli which he said was very good. Overall, the food was delicious! However, the service was under par. Our server never offered grated parm for our food as well as ground pepper which we like on our salads. All other tables got theirs w/o having to ask. We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.

This was our first time at Bruno’s and it was fantastic. Service was amazing. We learned about Bruno’s through the Denver Restaurant Week list of places to go. One of the best Italian restaurants that I’ve ever been. We live in Colorado Springs, but hope to go back again soon!

Great find just south of Baker on Broadway. Made me a little sad that the seafood place that was in the same location before had failed, but you know the minute you step in and smell what's cooking that it's going to be great. We went during Restaurant Week and everything we ate was outstanding. Only opportunity for improvement: get a Craft Cocktail wizard to help with the cocktail list (both of ours were sickly sweet). Until then I'd stick with wine but the food was FANTASTIC and we will put it into our regular dinner-out rotation!

Great place for traditional Italian food. No pretense. Staff is very friendly and attentive. The meals are large, enough for leftovers. The prices are fair. The food is delicious. Have been there 2 times in last month. Will continue to return for a nice dinner out.

Nice selection of homey, flavorful Italian dishes. Generous entree portions that include salad or soup. Particularly impressed with the skillful preparation of the eggplant parmesan. Thickly sliced, light crisp exterior and beautiful creamy interior-perfect! Attentive gracious service. Get out and support this great little neighborhood spot.

Love the decor and coziness of the new location. Was hoping for a more "fresh made" salad, with fresh cheese, maybe some creative ingredients. The bread is good, and the oil dip is really good. Wine list is nice and I had a wonderful house red wine. Service was outstanding. I had the sea bass special with the angel hair pasta and it was very very good. Wish we would have been offered fresh ground pepper and fresh ground cheese. They brought packets of salt and pepper and a prepacked container of cheese. Is this a covid thing? My boyfriend had the lobster pasta and he loved it. Ate it all. Overall, a nice little go to place, but I am missing the little touches that make a dinner out very nice.

We had contact with the hostess and the upstairs bartender (Michael?). I don't know the hostess's name, but she remembered us from two nights previous when we came in without reservations (not realizing at the time that we needed them) and seemed genuine when she had to turn us away. She was very personable as she took us to our table two days later when we DID have reservations. Michael (?) was terrific and very attentive to us, and we enjoyed talking with him when he had a few snippets of extra time. Kudos to both of them!

Outstanding as always! Had the Sea Bass special and it was great. Lemon and garlic based and prepared perfectly. Awesome bread service with wonderful olive oil that has garlic, olives and peppers in it. Dinner came with a fresh salad that was great and finally we topped off dinner with Limoncello cake which was delish! Love the staff as well. Can’t wait to go again.

These folks at Bruno's did a fantastic job. The angel hair with clams was well balanced among butter, white wine, garlic and a touch of pesto. There must have been 40 little 1.25" very fresh white clams in my dish. What a nice surprise. My son had the veal marsala, also excellent and he certainly pounded it down.

The service was also outstanding, very attentive, offered really good suggestions, and a classy way of presentation. The chef / owner came out and made sure we were completely satisfied. I will definitely go back.

This was our first time at Bruno‘s and we thought it was fabulous. The drinks were great as well as the food. We started with the artichokes which were delicious and each had a variety of pasta dishes. The chicken piccata was outstanding. It was one of the best versions of this meal that I have had and I order this meal in a lot of Italian restaurants. We will definitely be back!

This was our first trip to Bruno's Italian Bistro and we very much enjoyed it. The food and service was excellent. As we were in the COVID protocols, the tables were spaced nicely apart and we felt very comfortable.

I believe we received very good value for money at the restaurant. I thought the menu items were fairly priced and the wine list was also fairly priced.

We will keep Bruno's on our list of local Denver restaurants we appreciate throughout the year.
