This was our first time having brunch at Bruno's and we were very pleased. It was a little noisy (but that's to be expected because it was completely full by the time we left). However, the noise level didn't have any effect on our enjoyment. Our waiter was very personable and added to the experience. I had the Croque Madame and it was delicious.

I really enjoy the food here. The brunch is excellent. I Finally tried the dinner and it was delicious. The service is great and love the look of the place. The deserts are absolutely delicious. The only down side is the price. I do feel it’s a little pricy for Italian food on Staten Island. I will however be back eventually for dinner and will be coming back for desert and brunch often.

This Brunos is not as good as one on Forest Avenue. Menu was confusing, choices just so-so. More of a take out bakery and had nice private room for a special occasion. Firest Avenuue gets 5 stars, but not this one.

Great Italian bakery in SI. They were based in the city (west village) but have moved. Food is very good but the pastry is why I still go there, even from the Bronx!!! Enjoy

Service and food were excellent. Great wine choices.
I had the grilled salmon entree and my guests had the Branzini entree, linguini with white clam sauce and pappardella with mushrooms and tomatoes in a light cream sauce.
Each entree offered its own unique flavor.
For appetizers we shared the grilled calamari, which did not have a trace of oil and baked to perfection clams.
Dessert we all shared tartuffos and espresso.
Great overall afternoon and the food topped the bill for excellence!

Went for brunch and was totally unimpressed! The waitress was terrible, she didn't bring me my complimentary champagne or my juice. It took 15 min to get my coffee that I had to finally ask for and the omelet my child ordered with mushrooms came without. For the price it was totally not worth it and honestly I will never go back for brunch again.

We took my grandfather here for his birthday this past Saturday and had two picky eaters in our group-- they both loved their meals. The atmosphere was nice and good delicious. The only take away was our waitress who wasn't very attentive.

The food was the stand out , regional italian specialties not the American Italian slap red sauce on anything and call it Italian. Portions for brunch were very large and easily sharable. The pastry sampler , mmmmm. The pastry case will have you taking home some home baked treats!

There was a prix-fix Mother's Day Brunch Menu with a variety of options. We each ordered something different and it was all very tasty, well cooked and nicely served. The brunch also came with a complimentary glass of mimosa, which was very well balanced. There is also a bakery in the establishment and the aroma of the fresh baked goods was pleasant.

The food was absolutely delicious and the carbonara pizza was the best pizza I've ever had. While the price for the brunch seemed steep the amount of food that was provided felt like it was a great deal. I loved this place and would highly recommend it.
