Walked in with our own bottle of wine. Right out of the gate Angelo treated us as if I were committing
the biggest crime. He immediately told us that corkage is $40 and that we were out of line to have brought the wine to begin with. It created a very negative atmosphere. If we had not been with friends we would have left immediately. This is a restaurant in our neighborhood and we have eaten there many times. We will not be going back.

Would have given this a 4/5, but when the bill arrived, they charged $40 for a corking fee. The bottles ran $40, so therefore I paid $40 corking fee + the bottle. I questioned the amount of the corking fee and they said it was on the menu. I looked online and it was not on the menu. Most waiters would let you know to just get the bottle.
Unfortunately I give this a 2/5. Will not return on principle.

First time back since the pandemic and there have been some changes in the decor with the wine racks being moved and perhaps the floor was redone. There was adequate space between the tables.
Food and service was as I remember with a limited wine menu in place now.
I will definitely go back.

La Bruschetta is remarkably consistent. Angelo welcomes us into a comfortable dining room, mostly filled with "regulars" and we are served by familar wait staff. Food is always good, with generous portions, and sometimes some surprising specials. Good both for casual dinners and special occasions.

This is a neighborhood restaurant for us- we eat here often, we come back because it's a Feel-Good type of Family owned/run place- we had the Fish, the Bolognese and the Sea Food Pasta's - lets not forget we splurged- had deserts, both of the Ice Cream under a Chocolate Dome w/hot Carmel pour over and the Lemon Tortufo - Yep- big smiles for an enjoyable evening- there is Light at the end of the tunnel -
