My cousin always requests to go to Bruno’s for lunch whenever she comes up from south Jersey to see me. Everything from service, appetizers to dessert is always spot on. Love Bruno’s for dinner too! A must try.. You will return often:)

As always the food is good. But the service is lacking. Slow and their seems to be a lack of team work. One waiter thought out order was taken and it wasn't. People who came in after us where being taken care of while we just sat there waiting. Not until I called someone over was the issue remedied. I had to constantly ask for a coffee refill because we were not checked on. Our food when it did come out was cold. I like this place but honestly the hassle is not worth it.

This restaurant was just fair overall and I would not consider recommending because there are so many other better restaurants out there to try. The food was just ok, and the service was slow and they don't accept credit cards or they charge an extra 3% to your bill if you use one. They specialize in pastries but we didn't have any so I don't know how they fair.

Very disappointed in the brunch experience. The best part of the brunch was definitely the complimentary fruit and baked goods platter. The food arrived cold and did not have much flavor. Although the waiter was very nice, he was not very attentive. Our water glasses were not refilled without being asked. Unfortunately I will not go back.

I can see why this place was voted best brunch on Staten Island. I went for Saturday morning brunch on the recommendation of a coworker. So happy I did. It's a great place for brunch!!! $25 pp one complimentary drink, starters of fresh fruit and pastries, unlimited coffee and a great menu with many different choices for brunch. Will definitely be back with family and friends.

My wife and I went to brunch with some friends since it's a short walk from where we live. It was my first time there. Food was delicious though be aware it is a small place so it can feel a little crowded. As such the food orders took a little while to get there. The atmosphere is likely intended to be one where people want to take their time chatting, dining on bread and fruit (which is delicious and fresh since they're a bakery too), before their meal comes (I personally like to get in and out so that's on me) so I can understand why they took their time. Wasn't bad service, I just wish it would be snappier. As far as the brunch itself, food was amazing, and while it wasn't bottomless (you get one complimentary glass of champagne/mimosa - extras are around $6-7 at the time we went) it was still very enjoyable and super filling. We left stuffed! Overall good experience. 4/5.

Thoroughly enjoyed sharing an antipasti salada. The bread and dipping sauce were delicious. The dessert of cream puffs and ice cream were a perfect ending. The service and cocktails are inconsistent. Although not poor both could use some attention.

We came here after a 10k race on a Sunday. We were 7 people and they were super accommodating. We were even running a little late and they held the table for us. Gave me a cappuccino with a heart design in the foam upon walking in !! What more can I say!! This place is the best for brunch & anything really !!

Pleasant and above average restaurant for Staten Island. There is a wide and varied selection available, and a creative cocktail menu. The service was attentive and pleasant. I hate crowds and noise so I tend to go on the early side for dinner and late for lunch.
