    Buscando pequeños restaurantes locales encontramos Brunetta… en pocas palabras: Excelente servicio y comida, destacando el de Kairy, siempre alegre y servicial. Destacó en nuestra comida la ensalada “San Danielle”, con duraznos, nuez, arúgula…yo pedí un Rib Eye Fungi Porccini y la porción abundante y muy bien preparada. Pedimos también lasagna y pizza, ambos muy buenos. Pocas veces escribo reseñas pero este lugar merece mención especial por hacer las cosas con cariño… no es un restaurante con producción en serie.

    Booked thru open table. Didn’t have to wait for our table. Seated as soon as we checked in. Food is always incredible. Served hot. You can see the steam coming off of your entree. Pasta cooked perfectly. Attentive staff. Hidden gem. Noise level is perfect. You can carry a conversation. Our favorite spot for Italian food.

    Food was very hit and miss. All house made but we either loved the dish, or thought they messed up the order. Ordered two pasta’s and calamari. Calamari itself was good, as I mentioned, house made, but the Sauce they gave with it over powered the entire flavor of calamari. Once we asked for a different sauce it was perfect but would like to note it. Between the 2 pastas, mine was solid, rate it a 4 but the second was bland. The sauce I couldn’t taste even with a spoon full. It was almost just plain pasta with unseasoned shrimp. Overall, $90 food was not what I got. I think the price overall was what made the experience the worst. The atmosphere was very nice though, I do have to give them that.

    The best Italian restaurant in town. Reyna our server/bartender is always great and charming. Mushroom and truffle soup is a must to try! It’s too sad that they are removing amazing wines from their list. I would strongly recommend them not to do it. Offering cheaper low quality wines (like the Sauvignon TyDy) is not a good thing. Keep the duckhorn and decoy.

    We truly enjoyed our dining experience. The only reason I did not give it the highest stars is because the Risotto was crunchy rather than fluffy and soft.

    Tonight we had excellent service (Jess is an excellent waitress) the restaurant has is first class in all departments and we go often and highly recommend it. Overall I would give it a 4 because some of the wait staff are not that well trained and we have had several incidents that were not acceptable-Food orders wrong and timing off where all the entrees do not come at the same time leaving one of the party watching everyone else eat. The manager handled it well, but unfortunately it happened again.

    We have been there four times and had one bad experience with a waitress that got orders wrong. However the manager stepped up and very graciously took care of the problem. All the other times have been excellent-The restaurant has a very nice ambiance, the food and drinks are excellent and other than one incident the service is always great. I would recommend it.

    We had a pleasant surprise at this quaint restaurant that serves high-quality Italian dishes. JL was our server, and attended to us very well. He made some recommendations from the menu and they were on point. For appetizers we had a margarita pizza, the beef carpaccio, and a sautéed mushroom dish. My wife and I shared a parppadelle with pesto and shrimp. It was not on the menu they accommodated to our request and it was very good. The pasta was fresh and homemade, the shrimp were perfectly cooked and medium sized and the pesto was delicious. Our friends shared a rigatoni bolognese dish also, homemade pasta. It was very tasty. We shared a tiramisu in a pane-cotta for dessert. Overall, we were impressed and will be back.
