Pizza is best in the area in my opinion and love Branda's best salad. The only complaint is the employees who answer the phone and give you your food when getting take out. Not friendly at all and certainly don't seem like they enjoy what they're doing. Sometimes on the phone it almost seems like you're bothering them with your... More

I would classify this place as a higher tier pizzeria rather than an Italian restaurant. Most of the food was good and and so was the variety. The salads were plain and below average. We visited at Dinner time on Mother's Day and the place was packed. Obviously the kitchen and service staff was overwhelmed resulting in slow delivery and... More

Our visits to Branda's are always a fun time. The service is excellent and the food is always a great value. Brand's is a BYOB so our wine selection just makes their wonderful food more enjoyable.

The outside is deceptive. It looks like an 'ordinary' Italian place, however the food is amazing. I made the mistake of ordering the Antipasto and the Eggplant parmigiana, and had to bring one home for lunch. I can't wait to go back and sample some of the desserts.

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.
