I'm a fan! Branda's is one of those restaurants that you might not take a chance on because it's in strip type mall that it shares with the post office. Don't let the appearances keep you from enjoying this wonderful Italian restaurant. Branda's is small inside with a limited number of tables, so it's usually very full when we go.... More

Enjoyed the 3-4 times we have eaten here. From the individual pizzas to the freshly prepared pastas, every meal has been tasty. While speed of service is not their speciality, the service is still above average, as the waitresses we have had have been very attentive. BYOB as well, at least the last tome we were there.

There was nothing special here from food to service. I did not have the pizza though and that's important. I will go back to try it.

The food is delicious. The Service is fantastic and the people are even friendlier. I recommend the Eggplant Lasagna and the Tiramisu, although I've never had a bad dish here. Servings are huge so expect leftovers.

We've eaten here for years, and never been disappointed. The food is excellent from appetizer to desert. The menu offers something for everyone, with enough specials to help round things out. The owner is on-site to ensure food quality and excellent service. And the BYOB concept allows you to save money, even if you decide to enjoy a premium bottle... More

We never order pizza from there but Italian subs are great. I also never order anything breaded like chicken or veal parm. I have also had a great cheese steaks....it's the bread that really makes it good.

Ate here a few weeks ago for date night. The restaurant seating area is VERY small. It was not a downside, it was just surprising since the building appears to be so big (being essentially a strip mall, tbh). The service was very efficient, but I would have liked the servers to a be a bit more friendly. We'd never... More
