Decor: The whole restaurant needs revamping: get rid of the concrete banquettes, move the wonderful wood cook fire back to kitchen area, maybe a second tier of seating - the roof is high enough, glass in the street front to eliminate road noise and dust. People say the decor throws them off. Food : ignore surroundings and the food is... More

This restaurant was recommended to us for its great ribs, and we were not disappointed. Tender chargrilled ribs with a flavourful sauce, not cloyingly sweet like some, generous portion served with baked potato and corn on the cob. All that, plus a starter green salad, with a garlicky dressing. Bruno's has been in this spot for years and it shows,... More

Bruno's is average at best in our opinion. Food, service and ambience could definitely be improved. We might go again but it would be further down our list.

Was at Bruno's last night and it was fantastic. All the meat is grilled while you enjoy a drink. Brought to you hot with the best sides, fresh corn on the cob (to die for), an amazing baked potato (also to die for) and onion rings. I have had the baseball steak (filet), sirloin burger, steak sandwich and pasta dishes,... More

Came here for dinner with some friends who were visiting. I ordered the ball steak... it came rare/medium rare as requested. It was flame-grilled, tender and very flavorful. It was served with a baked potato and a piece of corn on the cob. Friends ordered the ribs. Everything was perfectly prepared and the waiter was attentive.

This is an exceptional venue because it is open to the street with all of the grilling for the beef done in the front of the restaurant. The seasoning is fabulous with many different flavors included in the grill sauce. We both had the famous baseball filet mignon and it was incredibly good. This is a smaller place with less... More

Small quaint restaurant with only a half dozen tables or so. We went with our 2 young children & had a lovely time.. Ribs melted in your mouth and the sides were very good. Our 2 1/2 yr old son's chicken parm was excellent. I ordered a piña colada, that they made from scratch & was beyond delicious! We were... More
