- Diners must wear masks unless eating or drinking
Don’t forget about the dessert! It was all Fantastic!
Das CDC sollte hier essen kommen, entweder werden die Gesichtsmasken garnicht oder nur ungenügend getragen.
Das Essen war gemessen am Preis schlecht und der Service komisch.
We love this place and visit whenever we are in the area. Authentic Italian food with great red sauce. It is a small staff and some maybe family..the owner maybe considered a bit gruff but we just get a kick out of him! We have always had a great meal for a good price.
We had linguini with clams and spaghettini bolognese. Really good. The bolognese was slightly sweet and delicious. Clam dish was basic but spot on - garlicky. Wine list not impressive but the house wine was palatable.
Food was excellent, surprised that not all employees were wearing masks at all or not properly.
Be aware that a tip is added to the check in advance which would’ve been nice to know.
Brun's has been a regular for my family for about 15 years. We dine at least 1 night per visit to Kissimmee, Bruno is always there and makes sure you enjoy your meal
We went to Bruno’s based upon reviews. Tomato sauce was excellent... and that is a huge positive on any Italian restaurant. Presentation of the food is lack luster... picture pizza restaurant style, but food very tasty. Owner very nice. Had some issues with food delivery, verse menu description, which owner made up for...
The reason for my ratings is this. I am from the northeast, and Italian... food great, presentation of food average at best, but in strip mall, so understandable.
We got our bill... gave credit card without looking at itemized, which was never presented. And I tipped on the credit card receipt that was presented to me... I went to the bathroom while the kids were finishing desert, and was trying to do the math in my head and realized something was amuck... we had 3 adults and 3 kids and bill was $230, and with a $50 tip was $280. And adults had 2 beers and 2 Prosecco total. And entrees are in the $15-20 range.
I came out of the bathroom and went to front desk and asked for an itemized receipt after I felt something was wrong and the owner said they added the gratuity and would I like to add something additional. This was never disclosed to me, and I’m a phenomenal tipper, used to work in the industry. I still left them and additional $10, over what they included, but left feeling taken advantage of.
So to summarize, food above average... great garlic knots, sauce great, calzone huge, owner typical nice older Italian, pasta over cooked, and not homemade... but okay.
Trying to get away with a 40%+ gratuity... not even close to okay. When I asked for itemized receipt after going to bathroom, owner and server looked like a deer in headlights.
We were a party of 6, 3 kids, 3 adults... no statement that they would add gratuity or even when they took my card... horrific.
Was the food above average Italian.... yes
Would I get take out... maybe
Would I eat in restaurant again... no...
Why... strip mall ambiance and lied about gratuity.
I did not receive my 100 points for this reservation!
Hidden gem for sure! We chose Bruno’s based on OpenTable reviews and it did not disappoint! Fresh homemade Italian food and it was delicious. Best meal we have had while visiting for sure. Very reasonably priced.
This place is excellent every time I come to Florida I like to visit there my family and myself really enjoy the atmosphere the food everything about the place including the owner
As a Jersey girl I was Skeptical about eating Italian anywhere outside of the tri-state area. Was pleasantly surprised by Bruno‘s food. Great place and if we ever return to the Orlando area will be sure to go back
Very good food. Mess up on service. Lost ticket so good late. Worth the wait.
Great food and service. Unique experience for our family!
Been to Brunos every time we visit Orange Lake and never dissapoints
I visited with three boys (12,10,7). They shared a cheese pizza and I had the veal marsala. The veal was amazing and the boys haven't stopped talking about the pizza. Great food!
My family and I loved it. Such a gem in a land of chain restaurants
Excellent food and service by the owner and staff.
Only complaint is owner mainly should keep his mask on in the dining area. Good was great!
I can not rave about this place enough. My family and I were running late for our reservation as we had just arrived in Orlando and our delayed flight set us back. I called to let them know I was running late as there were no uber’s available. The owner picked up the phone and could sense the stress in my voice, he told me to relax and get here in my own time and that there would be a table waiting for us whenever we got there. Well, we arrived 35 minutes late and he greeted us with a smile and sat us immediately. The owner was very attentive and his staff were also very welcoming. The food was INCREDIBLE. Very authentic Italian food, made with love and plated beautifully. My husband and I both ordered the specials which the owner recommended ,shrimp parm and braised beef penne 😋. I would highly recommend this place to any and everyone.
Great service. We came in late and they kept restaurant open for us
We were looking for a great meal and ran across Bruno’s. It doesn’t look like our average dining spot, but the food was excellent. Will definitely dine at Bruno’s every time we are in Orlando
What a great place to eat. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. The owner gives it a personal touch by taking your order and joking around with you. The next time I am in the area I will for sure dine here.
Delicious food!! Will be back!
We always go to Bruno's at least once when we are in the area. Always great food and service!
When we visit Kissimmee once or twice a tear we make it a point to go to Bruno's the food is very good and we know Italian the waiters are friendly service is quick but not rushed prices are fair and Bruno is typical Italian you will love him
Food was very bland and lacked seasoning or flavor. Would be better out of can.
We sat down and no one came to wait on us for a while. I asked a waiter (who was not wearing a face covering) if we could order and he very rudely told me we would just have to wait and he we get to us when he was ready. We promptly got up and walked out and never got a chance to eat.
Accommodated our party of 8, including 3 children, with ease. We were well served, and the food was good. We like supporting local independent restaurants and love Italian food.
Great food and great service! Would recommend Bruno's to others.
Best Italian food we have had in the state of Florida!!!
I and my husband has the specials. He had lamb chop marsala and I had shrimp parm. Both were OUTSTANDING! Space is clean and not overcrowded. The owner circulated and made recommendations.
We will return.
Server/Owner(?) was just above being rude. Had to ask for beverages to be refilled. Server/Owner seemed upset when 3 out of 4 ordered water. Had to ask for beverages to be refilled. Sauce nothing to write home about. Portions were adequate. Wanted to spend out $$ at a local establishment and not a chain, but they didn't seem to appreciate that.
Great! Bruno is gracious, the food is great & fresh, choices are abundant, value is perfect. Found by accident and was pleasantly surprised. Ate there twice in 1 week while on vacation. The whole family can’t wait to come back to Orlando just to eat at Bruno’s.
First-time diners at Bruno's. Definitely felt like part of the family. Great food, served up with plenty of opinion. Fun.
Very good food. Served by the owner - very engaging guy!
The food was absolutely amazing! Watch out for the garlic knots. They are so yummy. Nice inexpensive Italian wines by the glass.
Terrific little place in a strip mall. Bruno was a fun host. Classic Italian offerings. Will definitely go again.
We had our anniversary dinner there and it was wonderful, the food was excellent and his daily special was one of the best shrimp dishes I have ever had. We had enough food for the next day, and it tasted just as good so nothing was left on the plates. We always get their pizzas and they never disappoint. Skip the chain restaurants and try Bruno's.
Pizza was pretty good Veal parm was not so good. There was an illusion presented of Covid safety. Our temps were taken but device had not been calibrated. Both read 97.2. A worker starting his shift? walked through the restaurant without a mask. Two others periodically wore their masks below their nose. Will not dine there again.
Best garlic knots ever! Could have been a bit more food portion. Did not like the wine but I am a bit picky. It was too hot in there. I did however notice many pick up orders. I will try it again and order pizza next time. Very nice owner.
