Bruno’s Ristorante has been a fixture in the neighborhood for many years. We’ve enjoyed entertaining everyone from nearby residents to business guests to the Dallas Cowboys (until recently) and those who travel from further away.

Bruno Ceka started this establishment over 25 years ago, and has been actively involved since its beginning. Bruno is an enthusiastic businessman who loves working in and serving the local community. He’s had several business ventures in the area over the years, but his passion has always been here, at Bruno’s. Most days you’ll see him welcoming you in the dining room.

It was a lovely evening. They seated us in the room by the canal which was very nice. It was easy to hear conversation, the service was great, and the food delicious. We will go again! A wonderful place to celebrate or have a quiet dinner.

I've been there two times. It is a nice restaurant with great food. Then piano playing was wonderful. I also like the fact that I did not see people there in shorts and t-shirts (which greatly bothers me when people come into a nice restaurant dressed like they have never been out in public). I will definitely go to Bruno's Ristorante again.

Absolutely loved eating at Bruno's.
They had someone playing the piano, and it was sooo quiet on a friday night.
Exactly the opposite of what I expected.
I had a fantastic time and a delicious meal. (:
Will definitely be going back soon.

We hadn’t been to Bruno’s in over 10 years, not sure why. Our dinner was excellent! We had chicken piccata & lasagna. Both were really good. Bread was very good, too. I’d forgotten how pretty & QUIET Bruno’s was. Exactly what we like. We were so impressed, we made reservations for a family birthday celebration there for this weekend. SO glad to rediscover Bruno’s!

The only complaint that I have is that we were there for NYE and they had a pre-defined menu. We weren’t told about the menu and it didn’t have the pricing. We decided to leave as we didn’t want any of the choices provided. However, when we explained why we were leaving, we were offered the full menu. We all had something different and all 4 selections were fabulous. We haven’t been disappointed with the food yet!

Great atmosphere and service. However the food is very bland and pricey for what you get. Bruschetta was toast with warm tomatoes and basil on it that didn't blend at all. No balsamic or any other spice. Very dry. My entree was $22 and had very little flavor. The same with my dinner mate who ordered a different dish. Very dissapointing from a food perspective. Will not go again.

Bruno's never fails to provide the perfect setting for casual dinner or special occasions! We've enjoyed every dish we've tried, and the staff is outstanding. The lobster ravioli appetizer and the beef cannoli dish are two of our favorites. It's our favorite Italian restaurant - authentic cuisine and great selection of wines.

after expecting an awesome bruschetta , we received a dry, flavorless toast with stingy tomato and no presence of olive oil and garlic. . . . . .very disappointing .....

we'll be back hoping this improves. . . .it's about attention to DETAIL..

Always a pleasure to dine at Bruno’s. The service is excellent, the food is consistently delicious and high quality and the view and ambience are perfect. We have eaten here many times, and celebrated many special occasions here and Bruno’s has never disappointed. Bruno often comes by our table to personally check on us. A great neighborhood gem.

We finally tried Bruno's after being in Coppell for years, earlier this year. Why, it took us so long, I don't know. They are awesome. Food is great, and so is the service.
Bruno's is now our go-to for Italian. Part of me doesn't want to share, but on the other hand, I want them to stay in business too.
You really should try them.

For my first visit I arrived upon opening, and had the place to myself. I was seated on the canal side and rested my eyes with the view. The waiter was attentive & professional. A friend arrived to join me & she ordered bruschetta for her first time. She was impressed with her appetizer & would order again. Food was fresh and presented in a beautiful manner. We did not have dessert. As the placed filled, it got a bit noisy, but that was also from the live piano player that arrived with the supper regulars. They have a canal side private room, against a far wall. I suggest an average-sized family, or small work department would fit in comfort. Thank you Bruno's.

Appetizer was ok, mussels and calamari were over cooked and rubbery. Veal Parm was outstanding. Wine is bit overpriced and need more variety. Service was very attentive. Had six people at a business dinner in the dining room (not pvt room) and they auto tipped 20% including on 3 bottles of $200 cakebread . That’s not right should be precalc tip on 8 plus and 10% tip on wine not 20%. Won’t be back as a result and can’t recommend for a business dinner.
