My wife and I hadn't been here in 30 years because of a move...it was like opening a time capsule when we had the chance to return. We had the stuffed banana peppers for an appetizer. Hot but delicious. I had the ravioli and she had the gnocchi. With our salad and the generous portions we had no room for... More

We ate dinner here. We had salmon and stuffed flounder. Both were excellent. Our server was very attentive. The inside is nice. The outside looks a little run down but don't let appearances fool you. It was very full.

If you are looking for outstanding Italian food in a simple setting, this 70 year old establishment might be the place for you. Six of us ate there - all were delighted. Best lasagna I have had (and at 75 I've had a lot). Surroundings are ordinary - food is not. You won't be disappointed.

I grew up in Indiana and love to go back to Bruno's when I visit. We were there for diner last week. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Fresh bread and salad come out first. I had the manicotti and it was hot and very good! I would highly recommend dining here. I prefer the atmosphere in the basement but... More

Nothing to write home about. The food is average. The manicottis are good. I'm just not a huge fan of their red sauce, but that's because I was spoiled with an Italian grandma who cooked. The better atmosphere is downstairs.

I remember first going to Bruno's about 30 years ago when I was in college. I always liked their meat ravioli, which is home made. I last had it about 7 years ago and wanted to try it again. While the ravioli tasted as good as always, most of our food came out luke warm, at best. There were five... More

We dined at Bruno's, because we were with a friend who had grown up in Indiana, and she loves Bruno's. She hoped we would love it as much as she did, and we did! Our server, Zachary, was outstanding, and every dish we ordered was exactly how we ordered it. My friend and both her children ordered the manicotti, which... More

Bruno's is a place that my family and I have been too many times - a nice place to get a good meal. I would recommend it highly - nice atmosphere (we love to dine in the wine cellar) and the food is always very good, we love Italian! Our last visit was good (because of the food), but not... More

We needed a place to eat before attending a concert at IUP. We were just a bit limited with time and needed to find a place that we could get in and out in a timely fashion on a Saturday evening at 5:30. No need to worry.....Bruno's did an excellent job! We both ordered salads, one antipasta salad and the... More
