Description: Penticton's newest hot spot, from Chef Paul Cecconi and his wife Holly, Brodo Kitchen features simply fresh food. Enjoy a bowl of soup, fresh salad, a "sammie" or a combination of all three, made from locally-sourced ingredients that reflect what's fresh from the harvest. Unique to Penticton, cuddle up with a "flight of soups", three charming bowls ranging from cool gazpacho to classic French onion to tasty chilli. Brodo aims to tempt your taste buds with the Okanagan, reflecting the bounty of the land; there's even an urban cultivator on site providing fresh herbs, with ingredients coming from local orchards and farms, and wine from nearby vineyards.Grab a healthy fresh juice straight from the cooler -- Chef Paul loves to experiment with his juicer -- and linger at Brodo's communal table with friends over lunch. Daily specials are made with the best, freshest local ingredients, and our regular menu changes with the seasons. Join Brodo for dinner specials on Friday and Saturday nights, the mouth-watering smells from the kitchen will surely draw you in from anywhere in downtown Penticton. Brodo is fast and fresh. Can't stay? If you're in a hurry, grab some soup from the cooler for dinner, and we'll gladly wrap a sandwich or dish out a salad to pair with it. Don't forget to take home some of our homemade preserves, both savoury and sweet versions, for yourself, or as a grab-and-go hostess gift. Open 11am to 8pm for lunch and dinner, closed Sundays, Brodo offers free wifi and is in the heart of downtown Penticton. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter under the tag #tastebrodo for tempting specials and upcoming events.

“As advertised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

I have friends in the area who rave about this place. I've been twice for lunch & had the sandwich special both times and tasted the soups & salads my wife is partial to. The portions were not huge, but they were decent and the food was inventive and tasty. Friendly staff. Rustic-chic chunky wood & steel décor suits lunch better than dinner. Lunch time (no reservations) can be very busy even in the off-season, though waiting for a table is not too daunting a prospect. You order at the cash & often there's a table available when the food comes out. A decent selection of beer, wine & non-alcoholic drinks. It's on my go-to list whenever I'm in Penticton.

“Enthusiastic people and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Liam just whipped us up a fabulous little dessert, off menu, prepared with creativity and enthusiasm. Quince jam and thyme on a little cake with raspberry semi frado. This is a food enthusiast's type of place. Can I add that it's stylishly decorated?! Several days a week we're glad Brodo opened up.

“Yummy GF pasta :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Very accommodating for our gluten free needs and super tasty! I think that was the best pasta I've had in a long time. Great rustic and funky decor.

“Won't go back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

First off the staff were very friendly, so that is a positive. But unfortunately the food was not up to par, almost 25 dollars for two veggie sandwiches and a sparkling water beverage does not quite cut it! Sandwiches were small and bland, they had nothing with them unless you wanting to spend more money on a side. Not worth the money!

Il Brodo is a Penticton mom & pop operation, featuring first class ingredients in their hand-crafted soups and sandwiches. Very efficient service. Highly recommended.
