    As usual - everything was fantastic. Carter is a tremendous waiter. Nice, knowledgeable, engaging and patient with customers who probably aren’t as funny as we think we are. Kudos to the chef and kitchen… I’ve learned to always get the special - as it’s usually wonderful.

    The service was fast and friendly enough. The food was okay and under seasoned. We had never been to an Italian restaurant that didn’t offer bread. There are many other great Italian restaurants in Springfield.

    We drive 3hrs one way about twice a yr just to have dinner here. Love the simple, classic dining room, cozy atmosphere, excellent service and good food (I am Italian!). It is a bit of a splurge for us, but we always feel like it’s been a special occasion when we dine at Bruno’s.

    Our server Mike was very knowledgeable about the menu and spoke well to the dishes. Beautiful bar and intimate dining area. Had carpaccio for an appie, Caesar salad as well. Dressing tasted bottled. Capraccio delicious. Had the lobster ravioli and seared ahi tuna special. Both delicious! Especially the lobster sauce, amazing!!!

    Waitress didn't know what was going on because manager was not there to inform her. Didn't know which wines were available. My Italian sausage was burnt on one side. Wine that was available was way, way, way over-priced. I predict the place won't last another year. Too bad, it used to be good.

    DATE NIGHT!!!! Bruno’s has it all. Great service! Family fun atmosphere! Bar and wine service! and top it all with fresh fabulous unique food. Began with their new home made dipping bread and olive oil balsamic dipping sauce. Added cheese and garlic and created a wow!!! Started with a new salad. Grilled vegetables, mixed with butter lettuce, cheese crumbles and balsamic dressing. Delicious and very popular!! Main courses for her Wagyu rib eye with truffle butter. Perfectly seared and seasoned medium rare. For me linguine with clams and diavolo sauce. Impressed my dinner date girl friend. Major date night positives!!! Make a reservation and tell them George sent you! Bon Appetite

    Consistently Outstanding!!! Yesterday took my teenaged grandaughters to Bruno’s They started with Shirley Temples. Lots if cherries. Their fav since they were much younger. Fun drink. Enjoyed the NEW FRESH BAKED BREAD and dipping sauce. They started with perfectly seasonsed Cesar salads. Tasty and tangy! Then one of their main course favorites. Rigatoni bolognaise!! Perfect blend of seasoned meat sauce and bite sized rigatoni. No cutting. Lol! Filling and memorable. Even were able to take some home for a snack later. Service was exceptional and paid attention to the entire family. FUN! FUN! FUN!! HOME COOKED AFFORDABLE FAMILY MEALS!! DEFINITELY NEED RESERVATIONS. TELL THEM GEORGE SENT YOU BON APPETITE!

    Home cooking at a moderate cost!! That’s Bruno’s Last night enjoyed fresh clams in a diavolo spicy red sauce over linguini. Tangy and very tasty. Started with the caprese salad of soft mozzarella, two different types of tomatoes, virgin olive oil, spices and asked for Greek kalamata olives and onions. A Wow salad for sure. Italian Peroni beer for a great combination. All at moderate and very competitive prices. Congrats to the excellent. chefs in handling food for a 100% full house and serving meals up promptly and hot!! Competent and intelligent servers talked about food and beverages in an informative and friendly manner. Home cooked European meals in a family atmosphere Delicious!!! Third time eating here this week. I would suggest reservations for this busy place. Enjoy. Tell them George sent you.

    Bruno’s never fails to impress. They are proof that authentic, delicious Italian food can be had this side of New Jersey and New York. The best gnocchi and tiramisu I’ve had since I left the east coast. The service is fantastic and the ambiance reflects a little piece of Italy. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an upscale dining experience!!

    What a great Italian restaurant ! Im a long term regular customer. Been coming here for 15 years. First with original owner Bruno and now with new owners since Bruno retired . Smart new owners….they kept the great recipes from Bruno like his amazing pizza and unique cheese, original pasta sauces, tiramisu and more. Now with new ownership they have encouraged and allowed chefs to create new special recipes and enhanced older recipes. As but one example is their salads. First the updated caprese. Now it features several types of fresh tomatoes, unique soft mozzarella cheese, world famous imported Greek kalamata olives, imported olive oil and seasoning. Ask for raw onions for even more taste. And besides all the amazing fresh and homemade pasta sauces cooked to order there are the daily world recipe specials. These can range from broiled seafood dishes like big sea scallops, or halibut or salmon. And my special Greek favorite tender slow cooked Lamb Shank. No knife needed!! Tender and falls off the bone with a fork. And a truly amazing entree ate the Wagyu steaks. Chose from juicy marbled ribeye to tender tasty filet!! My fav filet with potato purée with either carrots or ask for fresh cooked seasoned spinach. Ive taken my family members there. Including daughter, grandsons and granddaughters with their partners. Now they are going to Bruno’s and enjoying the food. Ive also taken and referred to clients. They rave about Bruno’s and had even helped MY business. Service is the tops!!! Experienced and happy knowledgeable servers are attentive and professional from discussing menus items to offering wine, beer, and special mixed drink selections. Try the Italian Peroni beer or merlot wine for a change. It might become a new fav!!! Then the prompt meal to order and hot!!! Most of all they make you feel like family. Just like I felt growing up in my mediterranean Greek home. I am confident you will truly enjoy!!!
