I have been driving past this restaurant since it opened and finally had the chance to stop by for lunch. I had a wonderful meal! I started with the tomato soup. It was the greatest - It arrived piping hot and was full of bits of garlic and tomato, very creamy. It was very hard to chose what to order... More

I've been here about four times and the food is always excellent. I've had salmon, steak, scallops, shrimp, and veal. Everything is always fresh and they stress locally sourced items. Deserts are good as well. Don't miss this one!

I've been a lunchtime regular at Bruno's since 2007. In my opinion, it's the best lunch spot in town. Last night, my wife and I went there for dinner with our next door neighbors. I'm now convinced that it's the best place in town for dinner. In fact, my pork tenderloin meal was the best I've EVER had. My wife... More

I had always seen Bruno's as a breakfast place. But I had dinner there during "Restaurant Week" and thought it was excellent! The flavors were interesting and creative. They paired ribs with a vanilla-infused rice, which sounds odd, but worked perfectly! Friends all liked what they had. Desserts were house-made and wonderful. I had a fruit crisp that was tart...

Really good food and not overly priced. Service is attentive. Could use a more extensive wine list. You can't go wrong with the specials particularly their salmon.

I met a new friend here and was surprised at the food selection. Flavorful and just right for my discerning palette. I'm a total foodie and love dining adventures. This is one great discovery. After moving to Santa Rosa from SF, I thought, my dining adventure would come to a halt. To my surprise, there are a few gems out... More

Dining scene in Santa Rosa is nothing spectacular in general, but this little gem deserves five stars! Includes thoughtfully chosen appetizers, paired with great variety of entrees, adorned with attentive service, and reasonable prices. This small restaurant truly offers a great gastronomic experience. Will come again when we are in Santa Rosa.

Went to lunch with a group of friends here and enjoyed it so much I came back a week later. Great variety of lunch options, very cool menu of choices including vegetarian options. All of us had something different and all the meals were well done. Good place for lunch near downtown Santa Rosa.

This small, boutique restaurant offers simple items cooked extremely well. The food, presentation, and service are top notch. Prices are barely above average. Excellent value. Its a cool, calm, relaxing place to enjoy a meal.
