It was great the waiter was very nice and helpful
Amazing as always! Our favorite restaurant hands down! Great food, great atmosphere, and great service.
Service & food was great. Nice location to walk & see nearby.
Best Italian food and service in town. Don, Tim and Eron are the best.
Great food, great ambiance, Great Service.
Sophie, our waitress was an absolute gem! My sister and I have been here before, and decided to order nothing but appetizers , which every single one was phenomenal. (Fritto misto, carpaccio, arancini, and burratta) the real kicker here, the homemade limoncello! Made in house and absolute game changer. I even took some home, ask your waiter/waitress, it’s so worth it.
One of our favorites... always delicious food and the drinks are unique and fresh!
This was my second time visiting Brunos. It really is a perfect place for we decide to get fancy for date night!
Overall they have pretty good food and drinks, service is their strength. It’s pretty noisy inside these days
A great authentic Italian dining experience and the taste of the food is incredible.
The food was delicious, and our waiter was very knowledgeable.
Always a great experience at Bruno’s. Aaron in the bar area was both a great server and bartender. Solid old fashioned! Try the mussels as an appetizer. So tasty. The bread and basalmic vinegar are hard to not finish. Entrees are great. This time my wife had sea bass. I had salmon. Cooked to perfection. And the general manager Tim will make sure your experience is a good one. Give it a try.
Love the Bruno’s food, always excellent.
Only one comment that the dessert used to be better.
The service was impeccable and the Italian smell of the restaurant was just phenomenal. You can smell it just as you walk through the door And the food was excellent
Would appreciate a wider selection of entrees
Great service !!! Food was excellent will definitely go again and recommend to my friends!
Great local Brea place. Staff is outstanding, service is top notch. Food is light, not overpowering and their bartenders know how to mix a proper drink
So happy to be back at our favorite restaurant
Would totally recommend the Fritto Misto (Fried Calamari), Caesar Salad, Cioppino with Linguine, and Bruschetta. The atmosphere eating outside was awesome with a tent and some string lights. Highly recommend!
Leftovers replaced because they were thrown out mistakenly. Totally unexpected
Ordered the Italian chop salad which was absolutely delicious! And the lasagna which was amazing! My third time visiting Brunos does not disappoint! Can’t wait till next time!!
Great food as usual. Enjoyed the 1/2 price pasta and wine special. Everybody at Bruno’s is always so friendly and accommodating. Always our neighborhood “go to” spot!
Wait staff should be commended. The young guy who took care of my table did a great job.
Brunos does not disappoint. Been going here since they opened. I try something new every so often and it becomes my new favorite! This time I had the Easter Menu, three course meal for $25.00. Caesar salad (I asked them to chop), delicious with authentic Caesar dressing containing anchovies, Salmon on asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with a romanesco sauce, I ate every bite, and finished with the tiramisu, which was authentic, light and delicious. I usually have the carmel budino for dessert. This was the first time I had the tiramisu and really loved it. Just the right amount of rum and espresso.
Love this restaurant. Food is always delicious and the service is great!
We arrived in time for our booking and were seated immediately. The service and food were both very good.
I had reserved an outdoor table and when we got there, there were no tables outside, so we had to sit inside.
Great food, friendly and professional staff, spacious dining room, lovely low lit ambience.
We had an excellent time! The food was outstanding! Love you guys!!
We were seated right away indoors as we requested, thanks to Orange County entering the red zone that day. Our seating was socially distant from others. The noise level was quiet, suitable for comfortable conversation. Service was prompt and efficient. My dinner partner was very pleased with the salmon and I enjoyed the Sunday lasagna special, great food at a great price. Desserts were good. We also appreciated happy hour pricing on drinks. Best of all, they left us alone when we wanted time to talk. We plan to go back soon.
Consistently a great dining experience! One of our favorite local independent restaurants that we support. Food is creative, high quality and attentive service.
long time customer here; excellent, as always,,,,,
This is the place to go for an authentic Italian dining experience and exceptional service. The ingredients are fresh and the pasta is handmade.
