We went for a special occasion...but would go back just for a great meal. I ordered their pizza and will say in my opinion it was the best in Springfield. My wonderful Italian Husband who is a little picky about his past and sauce was very impressed with their meat sauce. It was so very charming...our waiter was terrific.

Bruno's is very pricey, but the food and the atmosphere is good. I have always sat at the bar, and I get great service and good conversation.

A dining experience doesn't bode well when a restaurant is empty, and the maitre d' rudely asks, "Do you have a reservation?" A reservation for an empty restaurant? No. The same maitre d' rudely told the diners beside us that they were not drinking their wine properly. The atmosphere was boring. The food was also boring with a dated menu.... More

After checking out tripadvisor and looking at restaurants fairly close to my hotel, I decided upon Bruno's, and was very happy that I did! It was early when I arrived, so was seated immediately. My waiter (I believe his name was Michael) was efficient and helpful with the menu. I ended up getting an appetizer special which was fresh asparagus... More

I went here with a large group of business associates. The restaurant is really attractive with a great atmosphere. We met upstairs in a cozy bar area. The service was excellent but the food ruined the experience. Anything with a bread or dough was burnt... not over cooked but burnt... Black!

I'll start with the good part: the owner is actually Italian, the food on the menu, for the most part are actual Italian recipes. The muscles we had were pretty good. We had some ravioli, which I don't believe were home made. I had a steak, but I wasn't impressed. I'm curious about the pizza, I definitely will go back... More

I thought I would try an Italian restaurant that I haven't already eaten at. The food was fine but not special. The menu was very boring and the service was not great. There are such better places in Springfield that I won't be back. Again if you want expensive mediocre food this is the place to go.

My husband and I have enjoyed dinner here several times and will occasionally take our grown children with us. We have not had a bad meal yet. Service is sometimes a little slow but the waiters are always knowledgeable about the menu.

Food was fantastic! We sat at the bar and the bartender was absolutely delightful! He was a former employee of the restaurant back to fill in for a friend on vaca...and he was so friendly and fun we didn't want to leave. I had the Gnocchi and was very happy with my meal, the environment and the fun and happy... More
