“Pretty Good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

We had Bruscato's cater for a family funeral for 50 crazy picky Italians, there was not much left :) The eggplant was a big hit as well as the Chicken Alfredo The portions were very big and we had plenty to go around.

“Not open sometimes”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Cannot deal with a place with posted hours who are not open when they post their hours. They sent out delivery menus and then never delivered. They said open at night, never open at night. I went there walk in for lunch. Waiting in line 20 min to get a miniscule, mediocre tuna sandwich. I don't see what the fuss is about. Don't waste your time.

“Overpriced, Skimpy Portions, but Tastes Italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is not really a restaurant, more of a deli but you can sit at a few places....the sandwiches are made on authentic Italian bread, but why pay $7 for 2 slices of cold cuts on a nice roll? The soups are not too involved, but expensive. And the made-to-order salad -- fuggedabowdit! -- just walk an extra two blocks to Giant and make your own for 1/2 the price. Sorry to say because they're nice people and the taste is authentic, but they are too high priced for too little "stuff". $8 for a salad with pokey ingredients?? You spend $11 or $12 for a lunch that's a lot less than two other delis right across the street. Mi dispiace!

“Lunch and catering gem - cheaper than listed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2007

This great italian deli offers sandwiches, panini, salads, pizza, and daily specials. You can have a hearty lunch for $10...don't know who wrote the profile and said 20.

One of the hole-in-the wall gems amidst Old Town's overpriced white linen restaurants.

Terrific food.
