I have been here at least 4 times. By far it is the best in a 5 to 10 mile radius. I have enjoyed the atmosphere and the food all 4 times. Service varies slightly but is always good. I recommend to anyone in Wake Forest. You have to travel a bit to meet the quality or dining experience.

What a delight to eat at an elegant restaurant where the food is phenomenal and the service is excellent! Three couples, six meals, everyone was pleased! The appetizers were delicioius (be sure to order Bruno's tomato/green bean salad! - - and the calamari received rave reviews -- as did the Blue Cheese Salad Wedge --- right along with the roasted...

We had a private room for a large party. Our waiter was top notch. The food though wasn't great. Many in our group got steaks and were not impressed. The salads were served family style and the Ceasar dressing didn't taste anything like Ceasar. The escargot was very very buttery almost to the point the little snails were drowning in... More

Since discovering Bruno several years ago, I have returned many times, and always came away perfectly satisfied. With minor exceptions, this proved to be true again when visiting last evening. Have never had an entrée fail here, and the swordfish special was outstanding last night as was my mother-in-law's veal piccata and the wife's very large Delmonico strip steak. I... More

We took two Italian food lovers to Bruno. They wanted to try a restaurant they had never been to. It's a white tablecloth restaurant; however, typical nice casual wear was fine. It's a varied menu with a lot of good choices, especially the salads. The night we went, we had a choice of 3 different homemade soups, too. Two had... More

We have recommended this restaurant to many people. We chose this spot for our 16th anniversary because it has been fantastic every other time. Last night however, it was the equivalent of Olive Garden without the low expectations. The wine glasses have been changed from the nice restaurant stemware to thick, small, and indestructible. We noticed stainless steel martini glasses,... More

Went here for a last minute date night. We wanted to try something new and a sit down option. This location is in the shopping plaza with Harris Teeter. After going in and seeing that it was a white table cloth type of restaurant we were not sure we would be seated as we were wearing jeans and sweats. We... More
