Excellent Italian, albeit a little pricey

The ambiance and the service are terrific and the food is great. The only slight drawback is the price. But, I suppose, you're paying for a slightly more upscale experience than the average restaurant. Great place for special occasions.

Some friends and I had dinner here and the food and service was really good. My linguine diavola was excellent with jumbo shrimp, the other three were complimentary of their meals. One of my friends and I went back for lunch during the week and the food was not as good. I had a panino sausage which was average, her... More

I have been to Bruno's on three separate occasions. I have tried several items on the menu. All were disappointing. They were flavorless, boring, and not even visually appealing. Furthermore, I've had the same server each time and didn't like him. He tries to presume what you want to order and treats you like he knows better than you do.... More

I expected a more exciting menu. Perhaps it's just that I am from a big city and Italian restaurants there are more so bold and competitive. They also make their own pasta. That was not the case here when I asked about the ravoli with shrimp and lobster, although I was told it was good. Nice server. I think the... More

I no longer need to travel to Italy to have authentic fresh Italian food. They have great food, great wine and awesome hospitality!

Went to Bruno’s for a graduation dinner on a Saturday night. Made reservations over a month in advance because I was worried it would be crowded. WRONG. 7:30 reservations on a Saturday night of graduation weekend and the place was deserted. Where is everyone? The place is charming. Looks like a restaurant you’d find in Florence or Rome. Wait staff... More

Attended a wedding rehearsal dinner here. Good was fantastic, beautifully laid out buffet style, and service was exceptional! Bruschetta was very very good and so was the tiramisu.

My mother, sister and I were in Springfield for an evening as we were meeting a friend. My mother wanted pasta and we went to a few places, but they were packed out. We then found Bruno's on TA and by the reviews decided to check it out. It was later in the evening around 7pm or later and from... More

We had one of the best meals in Springfield here. We have been many times but this time the food was on point. Service was great and Bruno's wine is fantastic, it is a 2011 that he just recently introduced. Check it out if you haven't been in a while, well worth it.
