“Make Bruno's Your Billings, MT Choice”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We were immediately greeted and seated upon entering the restaurant by a cheerful young lady, and then another approached our table to take a drink order. Our waitperson, Jake, both knew the history of the restaurant--we asked because of the photo of a man with a young child on the menu cover--and made useful suggestions for our meal. We ordered Chicken Parmesan to share, which came with a green salad (we asked for Caesar dressing, which was very well done, although I skipped the anchovies that my husband requested). The kitchen split our dish in the kitchen, which arrived in individual baking dishes, browned and crusty. Since it had a red sauce, for the accompanying pasta we selected linguine (made in house) with carbonara sauce. Really, really good. They're famous for their flat-bread pizza, but there's only so much you can do in one sitting. We'd definitely return if back in the area.

“We love Bruno's”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We try to eat here at least once on every trip to Billings. Their salads are fantastic. Especially the Greek salad. I recommend it.

“Pretty good.”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

We actually went to the Asian grill next door to start but we left because of an absence of service. Glad we did because Bruno's next door hit the spot. Our server couldn't have been nicer. She was great and made us feel welcome. The food is good but the portions are very large. We split a carbonara and a pizza for the four of us an we still took food home. Try the salads with the house Italian! Very nice.

“Great garlic bread; if you like Italian food, this is bland”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Take it from someone who is half Italian, this is NOT remotely Italian as I know it---it is too "Americanized"; it's bland, with few herbs and spices. The garlic bread is hearty and tasty, but everything else tasted as though it came from a food service can and was prepared by microwave. The prices are decent, too, but you can make better, more authentic Italian food at home---& that's not why you want to dine out, is it? Great Italian restaurants are hard to come by in MT & WY---& sadly, this is NOT one of them.
