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.

Very pleasant evening. It is enjoyable to have dinner and good conversation without talking over music and crowds. Only complaint was the scampi did not have any flavor. Rests of the meals I was told were very good

My wife and I came here for our 2nd Anniversary. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and they have a great wine list. The piano player set the atmosphere. If you're looking for a quiete and romantic restaurant then visit Bruno's.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The people are warm and friendly, the ambience is quiet and welcoming, makes us feel like we could spend all evening here. The view of the canal from our table is pretty and peaceful, made especially nice by candlelight. There is a good selection of both food and wine and both seem to be priced nicely. The food is delicious too! Wonderful restaurant experience.

The best Tiramisu I’ve ever had. And I am a Tiramisu fanatic, so that says A LOT! If you like Tiramisu or are on the fence about it..... this is a MUST try!! I’ve had hundreds of Tiramisu from different establishments and places in the world. So far, my #1.

We went here tonight based on the excellent reviews. We could not have been more disappointed. When we walked in, they were mopping the floors and it smelled like an old mildewed mop. We decided to let that pass. Appetizer: mozzarella sticks. Cold in the center and tasted frost bitten. Entrees: Veal Parmesan and Lasagna. Both tasted like they had been reheated from frozen. Decided not to stay for dessert. No piano playing like other reviewers have mentioned, and the “canal view” was a green looking drainage canal. We ended up going somewhere else for dessert and wine. Major let down.

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.
