Lasagna al Forno
fresh pasta / homemade bolognese sauce / béchamel / parmigiano
whole leaf romaine / white anchovies / 'oil & vinegar' Caesar dressing / parmesan
We had the chicken parm and Caesar salad. both excellent. Bruno's is the only place that has anchovies in their salad. Ate at the bar. very accommodating
This is our 1st time here. Great service. Food was really fresh and delicious! Best pesto I've had in a.long time. Highly recommend.
We love Brunos. And never disappoints us. Food taste amazing stuff is friendly as always.
First time dining here and we loved it. Our servers Danni and David were excellent as was the food and drinks!
The food was amazing! Our server was great. It was a Saturday night so it was super busy, which is a given, so I definitely recommend making a reservation on here. I got there 5 minutes before to check in and got sat right away.
Great food, service was wonderful and it was a classy relaxing environment. We enjoyed our fettuccini, lasagna and salmon. It is a prefect place to have a nice dinner with friends and family.
Dinner with my daughter Great food, quick service.
My friend and I will meet here on occasion. We have a great experience every time! Great service, food, and drinks! Thank you!
Service was great and bartender, Aaron recommended the scallops which were some of the best I’ve ever had! And he makes a mean Old Fashioned!
One of the few places that were open on New Year's Day and we are so glad we found this place. It was our first time and were not disappointed. We met the owner, he was super friendly and gave us recommendations for what to order. We loved the bread and dipping sauce (olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic chunks!) and asked for seconds. The food was wonderful, the service was equally great, no complaints whatsoever. Will definitely return.
I ordered the vongole and linguini pasta. When the order came out the dish appeared like a soup. I was very confused because the description in the menu did not translate to what I received. I even asked the server if the dish was supposed to be so watery.
Friend ordered the Seabass which was decent but also had a very fishy smell. Overall the food wasn’t fabulous but the bread definitely made up for it.
Sadly will not return. The food and service both slipped. Spaghetti and meatballs were lukewarm and the meatballs were like solid rock boulders. Food was served super fast, which makes me wonder how it can be lukewarm.
The Skirt Steak was fantastic. Served Med Rare, just right. Sauce was very tasty with perfect small potatoes. Serving Temperature was excellent.
My wifes Sea Bass was soso. Temperature was rather cool and taste a little off from prior visits. Almost as if they precooked a batch due to being New Years Eve.
Cozy neighborhood spot. Nice bar area, and outdoor space. Great food.
Our table was ready for us even though we arrived 30 min early and planned to get a drink at the bar. We were promptly ordering drinks and appetizers, can't go wrong with capaccio. Our server was attentive but not overbearing, she checked on drinks and our meals and made sure we were comfortable. All plates were great, especially the bucatini with boar sausage.
Bruno's never disappoints. Whether going for a night on the town with the theaters across the street, or a business meeting, it is always good. We went on a Monday night and it was pretty busy. The patio seating was closed due to the rain so inside every table was filled.
Our server/bartender was super friendly and attentive. Great food, great experience.
The food was good and service was fine. We ended up with a high top table when I requested a regular table, but the hostess said she didn’t have notes on our preference. Tables were really close together.
Excellent food and value.good drinks and service.very well managed.
Food and service is excellent. It is our favorite restaurant in Brea.
It had been years since we last went to Bruno’s. What a Delicious meal my wife and I had to celebrate Christmas Eve. The staff was very helpful and the joy in the room was felt by all. What a meal arrived. We enjoyed it and ate every morsel.
Dinner was amazing as usual, service impeccable. Thanks for a great night!
I had written off Bruno’s but decided to give it one more chance. Our server was outstanding. My food was delicious, I ordered the pesto pasta. My husband ordered the seafood pasta, and I don’t recall the seafood being well, so shrimpy. I am assuming it’s a supply chain issue. The wine was fantastic and staff was super attentive and kind. Was very pleased!
Service was amazing….no doubt about that! Everyone was very nice and courteous.
Food on the other hand was ‘so so’…kind of flavorless, not the same as when Bruno’s first opened.
Bruno’s is like a family restaurant with fine quality food and drink. The food is delicious and the service is personal, fun, interactive and spot on! The manager always comes by to make sure everything is up to expectations. Bruno’s always delivers. We feel so lucky to have such a gem in our home town.
Everything was great! The service was outstanding. The staff was super nice, friendly and helpful with switching to another table because it was pretty chilly on their patio. The food came out fairly quick and was delicious! Overall we had a great time! Definitely will come back again.
One of the best Italian food I’ve tried so far. And best of all, the price is very good for the quality food they serve. A must try if you never been!
The food here is soooo good. We started off with an amazing salami tray and mussels in garlic wine sauce. Then everyone received their hot, warm, delicious pastas. Our party shared various desserts so I got to taste a bit of everything. I normally don't like Tiramisu, but the Tiramisu here is absolutely delicious and melts in your mouth. We literally devoured everything that we ordered. Did I mention they give complimentary soft crusty bread with olive oil and red peppers? Surprisingly, our total bill was very reasonable given all the food we ordered plus wine. I will be back.
Had great service but was a little disappointed that the steak was not available. Our server forgot to tell us…besides that he was great.
Thought it would be a little loud but it was perfect. Not to loud, was able to hear my group (&myself) talking and not yelling across the table during dinner. Would recommend.
The food, service, & ambience we're great! Will definitely be going back.
Rigatoni Alfredo is a must!!! Great date spot or special occasion
It’s was my Birthday celebration. Good food & service was great!!
Thank you 👍😀
First time at Bruno’s and what a great meal it was. Friendly staff, excellent waiter and Thursday night chicken parmigiana all made for a great night at Brea.
FIrst time at Brunos ... great food ... great location
Like Arnold.... I'll be back
Excellent food and service! Great for first dates 8r get togethers
Only complaint I have is in the size of the wine glass. It really looks small and I'm not sure it's even 4 ounces. Not worth the money by the glass.
The service was great and the food was delicious!
Food was made from fresh, quality ingredients which were obvious by how delicious each dish was and we didn't feel bloated after eating all that bread and pasta, unlike other places.
Excellent food and service...my only issue was the noise level,maybe some sound dampners would help and my personal hate of Edison lights.definately will be back soon!
Ate outside because of the noise level inside. Not warm enough even with heaters on. Food also not warm enough, good though, so was the service. Efficient and friendly.
We love Bruno’s outside in Summertime.
Superb dining experience as usual. Brought some out of town guests and the food and service was excellent. The salmon was particularly delicious tonight. Thank you Tim and staff!
