We went to Bruno's for our 40th anniversary. It's a nice, homey, neighborhood restaurant. The food we had was definitely homemade and delicious. I had the lasagna which was as good as any I had in Italy, homemade noodles, and a sauce that must have cooked all day. The sauce was thick enough to eat with a fork, the fried... More

Some of the friendliest service in CLE, with the patrons even adding to the ambiance. The food...absolutely exquisite...some of the best Italian food I've had in my lifetime of being in CLE. The atmosphere is old world Italian, with great music, great ambiance, and you feel like family. Absolute must for anyone visiting/living in CLE. And the food...plan on taking... More

Homemade pasta and fresh red sauce? Yes, please! As a Southerner, I hate to say this (and there are a few exceptions), but finding authentic Italian food in the South is difficult. So when I travel north, I'm a sucker for Italian food. Bruno's is an unassuming gem some Ohio locals found. They said it was started by a former... More

lousy service, waitress never came around to check if we wanted another cocktail or how we liked the food, she wrote down the wrong order for my wife, brought it out, we pointed out the mistake, she said she will have it in 10 minutes, 25 minutes later after the rest of our group was finished she brought the food...

We thought the Maitre d' was joking when he said that we needed reservations even though we looked at the seating in the restaurant at 8 pm on a weekday and there were clearly open tables. He thankfully did seat us. We started with the stuffed hot banana pepper appetizer, in which, we both felt that the peppers were not... More

A business associate hosted us at this out of downtown gem. Excellent traditional Italian; casual atmosphere, small dining room and exceptional service.

The food is great, the atmosphere is inviting, albeit it small, I would call ahead for reservations The staff is efficient, after they make sure your order is taken properly, they leave you to have private conversation, yet still attentive of water, drinks, bread, etc. It truly is a lost gem. Not in the best of neighborhoods, but your cars... More

Last Sunday we met friends from the Westside at Brunos. The service and the meal were well worth the 35 minute drive. The food wasnt gourmet, but good hearty family recipe Italian. Brunos gravy is some of the best anywhere. It is a small place and tables can be a little tight, but that is part of the charm too!

Thank rickgreenberg100
