Bruno and his wife were very welcoming and the food was very good. The chimichanga was delicious. The pizza was ok but not as good as East coast!

Pizza tasted like communion wafers with thin coat of dry cheese. It's pretty tough to mess up pizza, but Brunos did. No wonder the place had such a small crowd on Sat night. The hefty guy serving me was indifferent and didn't even warm the cold pre-made pizza slice or return my "thank you". He's indifferent so now, so am... More

Dined at Bruno's twice during our stay in Seattle. Both times staff were extremely pleasant making suggestions. Licenced with both great Italian and Mexican Cuisine at a very reasonable price. We tried both, were impressed with the lovely flavours, compliments to the Chef. Promised Bruno a postcard from Brisbane.

This place has been open since the 1970's and is owned by an Italian woman and her Hispanic husband so they have a mixed Mexican and Italian menu. Neither is as great as going to an actual Mexican or an Italian restaurant but it was very good. Nice to be able to mix tastes. Great local landmark and worth a... More

If you want to see an authentic part of Seattle, stop and eat at Brunos. Excellent Italian and Mexican food, inexpensive but good drinks, friendly multilingual staff, priced very appealingly, and you will be the only tourists there. Be warned, the portions are colossal by any measure.

Brunos is the best for Mexican food in Seattle. The salsa has a kick and the chile verde is to die for. I'm a CO native and have had a hard time finding anything that is as food as home. This place hits the spot! All of the food is great and the staff are awesome!

We really enjoyed going to Bruno's in downtown Seattle. This is one of those little family-run establishments where you are welcomed with open arms and the food is great. Bruno is Italian and his wife is Mexican and their food and the quaint ambience (reminicent of Mexico) reflects both of their cultures. The portions are large and the meals we... More

Who would thought that a restaurant that serves both italian and mexican food would be a good idea? Well, your thoughts on the matter come in second place, as the food simply speaks for itself! Bruno, the nicest italian guy I've ever met, puts passion and home meal flavour to every single dish he prepares. I particularly recommend his "Chicken... More

We ate at bruno's in 2010 and found Bruno very friendly, the food great, and no need whatsoever to call the health department!

Bruno's has been in Seattle for ages. Food: Great comfort food. Bruno is Italian and his wife Mexican thus the 2 different types of food offerings. Value: Great portions and prices are comparable to most any place downtown. Plus they have a decent bare bones bar. Service: The folks working there are great and Bruno is a gracious host. Atmosphere:... More
