Moved to Portsmouth's historic district and frequent many restaurants downtown. I've given Bruttis three chances. They failed each time. Watched manager wipe something up from the floor than walk over and use the same dirty rag to wipe off two tables. Charles, the owner misses the obvious improvements needed in cleanliness, customer service and food quality. Beautiful building with potential... More

The restaurant is contained in a very old building in downtown, old Portsmouth just around the corner from the main street. The decor is eclectic and dated but the Sunday brunch overwhelmed us. The choices were many: various slices of different types of meat, omlets cooked to order, lots of hot and cold sides and many slads and desserts. We... More

We had some trouble when we first sat down getting someone to wait on us not sure why. We had to ask the hostess twice. But all worked out and our waitress was great, very attentive. WOW the Buffett on Sunday is amazing. Everything I ate was very good. They have so many options-traditional things like eggs, bacon, sausage,biscuits, grits... More

Took my family here for dinner. Should have known better when we walked in on a Saturday night & there were only 2 other customers. Without going into great detail, I can summarize our experiance by saying it was the worst food & service we've ever had. We will NEVER go back!

The food is okay. The restaurant is very crowded as in small with too many table. Some of the staff are down right crabby and they hire some clueless beings too. The brunch has an excellent variety of food but is very crowded as far as people and space.

This is a terrific eatery in Old Town Portsmouth. Enjoyable atmosphere, delicious food and great service makes for a fun evening. And the catch is it's surprisingly affordable!

After being told of a comedy show happening at Brutti's we dropped by to enjoy the show. The comedy was mediocre at best. A few of the comedians literally were reading jokes from a card. The leading comedian was extremely offensive and out of line with a few guests. We will not be going back.

Me & my little one wanted to try somewhere new & I came upon this on TripAdvisor great recommendation. The brunch buffet was a spread glad I brought my appetite. A la carte stations as well & delivered to your table. Overall service was good. You definitely get your monies worth. Definitely recommend trying just once.
