We had a wonderful meal at Bruda. The food was flavourful and delicious. I recommend these appetizers - the seared scallops or the butter lettuce salad or the mushroom bisque. I loved the lamb entree. My dinner mates enjoyed the gnocchi, pork tenderloin and chicken....More

in Little Italy, apparent from the cross-section of
clubbers in glitzy dresses, and elderly couples
