    Thank you Bruno for a fabulous night of delicious food and excellent service. I called Bruno last minute literally the night before to host a dinner to 25 guest of family and friends to celebrate our
    nuptials. Bruno not only accommodated me last minute but set me up in his private room. Also a huge thank you to his bakery for making us a beautiful and scrumptious wedding cake. Love Mr. & Mrs.

    We had a rehearsal dinner reservation for approximately 40 people at Gino's on Cross Bay Blvd. When we arrived, they did not have our reservation and the person that took the reservation was not
    there. They didn't seem to care and they made no attempt whatsoever to accommodate us, we had to leave. My daughter and fiance were so embarrassed with the entire wedding party there to witness
    We walked down the street to Bruno's where we were immediately welcomed in without question, given a private room with EXCELLENT service and GREAT food! I cannot Thank Bruno enough for accommodating
    and working with us on a moments notice. I highly recommend Bruno Ristorante for great food and service!

    On my recent trips to New York I visited Bruno's Ristorante more than once! The food, the staff and atmosphere is the best. I truly enjoyed the salads, the Bruno Pizza, crab cakes, the pasta with
    salmon just to name a few. All the dishes were served hot and delicious. The Sangria was very good. The waitstaff is friendly and extremely professional. I will be back in New York next week and I
    will be back to enjoy more delicious creations at Bruno's Ristorante! I can't wait. Keep up the great work.

  • michael lesh (Friday, September 28 12 08:17 pm EDT)

    Dear Bruno: I wanted to thank you and Carmella for introducing me to what I now conclude is the best pizza in New York. I have lived in the city for all my live and witnessed the steady decline of
    pizza - until I tasted yours. Please open up in Manhattan or at least deliver. Thanks again,

    Michael (and Rebecca)

    So my husband and I routinely walk on Crossbay Blvd and always pass by Bruno's restaurant but have never walked inside but the other night a young man happened to be standing outside this restaurant
    and convinced us to come in and have dinner and I'm so thanful he did! The food there is incredible. Our waiter who was a delight recommended the crab cake appetizer and it was out of this world. We
    couldn't have been happier with the service, the food and the prices! Thank you so very much to that young man who now gave us our new favorite place to eat!

  • Eddy (Tuesday, July 24 12 11:42 am EDT)

    Got tired of the same old places on the Blvd so we went to Bruno's last night. They are running a great prefix menu right now, and my wife and I ate like royalty! The staff was great, prices were
    awesome. No complaints at all. First class all around.
