Actually had made plans to go elsewhere, but over ruled by diet restrictions in the group....however, Italian was acceptable. Did not want a pizza place, although they have that here and it isn't bad, but not the best.....I called for a reservation on a Sunday afternoon for a party of 5. We were seated right away, got a glass of... More

Went here on a. Friday night. This place is very small so we secured a reservation. Glad we did. Its popular! Our food was amazing. Perfectly cooked gnocchi and the best linguini and clams I have ever eaten anywhere. The prices compared to the portion sizes were outstanding. We both had a enough to eat for lunch the next day....

If you like mac and cheese this lasagna is for you. Very sparse ground beef filling. Definitely not my Italian grandmothers, nor mothers lasagna. The red sauce was somewhat pleasing. Italian sauces do vary according to what region in Italy your family is from. Read the hype on this Italian restaurant and so I wanted to try it.....very disappointing.

We went to Bruno's for our 40th anniversary. It's a nice, homey, neighborhood restaurant. The food we had was definitely homemade and delicious. I had the lasagna which was as good as any I had in Italy, homemade noodles, and a sauce that must have cooked all day. The sauce was thick enough to eat with a fork, the fried... More

Some of the friendliest service in CLE, with the patrons even adding to the ambiance. The food...absolutely exquisite...some of the best Italian food I've had in my lifetime of being in CLE. The atmosphere is old world Italian, with great music, great ambiance, and you feel like family. Absolute must for anyone visiting/living in CLE. And the food...plan on taking... More

Homemade pasta and fresh red sauce? Yes, please! As a Southerner, I hate to say this (and there are a few exceptions), but finding authentic Italian food in the South is difficult. So when I travel north, I'm a sucker for Italian food. Bruno's is an unassuming gem some Ohio locals found. They said it was started by a former... More

We thought the Maitre d' was joking when he said that we needed reservations even though we looked at the seating in the restaurant at 8 pm on a weekday and there were clearly open tables. He thankfully did seat us. We started with the stuffed hot banana pepper appetizer, in which, we both felt that the peppers were not... More
