This little Italian restaurant is a slice of heaven. LaBruzza's is located just outside of Prescott on
W Iron Springs Rd. The menu has a nice variety as well as low prices. The most expensive item is $ 15.95. It is very casual so please take the family. It is rather small so can get crowded and is closed on Sunday and Monday. The best part of this restaurant is you can take your own wine with No corking few and the food is outstanding. Enjoy

I am not an Italian food gourmet critic, but I did live in NY City for 40 years eating lots of authentic Italian fare there, and I have traveled through Italy eating Italian cuisine there as well. LaBruzza is definitely NOT "it". Some restaurants can succeed by merely providing plenty of OK low-cost stomach-filling food, masquerading as authentic cuisine, to an undiscerning public, at reasonable prices. As such, you'll see people lining up outside LaBruzzas for exactly that.
The closest that many of them have ever come to "Italian" is "Chef Boyardee". Sure, LaBruzzas is better than opening up a can of spaghetti, or an Italian TV dinner in your kitchen, but if you KNOW what Italian food is SUPPOSED TO taste like, LaBruzza falls somewhat short of the mark. Genovese on Whiskey Row in Prescott is a better bet but will be more expensive. Papa's on Cortez has some nice Italian dishes, but STAY AWAY from their really mediocre pizza. Rosa's is reasonable, if uninspired (and noisy). And, yes, Olive Garden is also better than LaBruzzas. If you are in the LaBruzzas vicinity (away from Whiskey Row), the Iron Springs Cafe is just across the street from La Bruzzas and has a creative menu and better food.

Well, I made reservations for 5 people at LaBruzza's tonight. When we got there, it was packed and people were lined up outside, then i was told they don't take reservations. Obviously someone didn't know this. But the owner said he would do everything he could to get us in on time. It worked out great, we got seated 5 minutes early!. This was my first visit, but I knew to bring our own wine as they don't serve alcohol. The meals were delicious, the server as support staff were great, and the owner Jim made it a point to visit every table. OK, so maybe they don't take reservations, but with the whole experience being great, I can easily take a pass on being upset. However, the next time I come here, I'll try to make reservations so we can be seated early!!

Pretty much everything about La Bruzzas is quite good. Prices.,menu choice, food and service are all top notch. They don't have a liquor license but you can bring your own bottle with NO corkage fee and the even supply the corkscrew and glasses. Worth the drive from wherever you are in the area.

This little Ma & Pa Italian Bistro in Prescott, Az is by far the best Italian food restaurant in the Prescott Area. Their food is made fresh daily. With an entre, you get an all you can eat wonderfully created large bowl of salad, with their delicious home made italian dressing. And all you can eat fresh from the oven bread. My favorite dish is the Salmon fetticine, ...simply wonderful flavor. Gotta try this place if your in the Prescott arer and got a hankering for some really good Italian food.
