Since 1977 Broginos has been a local destination for the South Bay and beyond. We proudly make all the sauces from scratch and our bread and pizza are made fresh daily. We offer many excellent wines from Italy and California and our full bar is famous for the best martinis in town. Broginos is family owned and we will keep it this way.

Eating on a parking lot is not the best ambiance, but the service and food is very good and plentiful

Even during the pandemic, Broginos came through well. Ratings for things like ambiance could have been less, but, come on, we're in a parking lot. they dressed it up nicely. they always serve good size portions. And, while trying to keep my balance, in a chair on rocky pavement, heading down a driveway, I enjoyed my meal. Also, our waiter, Oscar, was attentive, friendly, and gets 5 stars.

Service was HORRENDOUS- extremely rude, slow, never came back except to bring the check. We wanted to support a local business but we will NOT be going back. Ridiculous

This review was written with COVID-19 restrictions in place. Mandated al fresco dining off Artesia Boulevard is a sound challenge, but not overly untolerable. Adequate social distancing was observed. Dinner was tasty enough to plan a return. Grateful to support small local business and this includes staff.

They have done a nice job with their outdoor dining! Our waiter the night we were there was fun but not attentive service wise. The other waiter had to pick up slack for him. I would not let it deter us from going again though

The ambience outside is great. The food was better than I remembered as it's been some time since our last visit. We already talked about going back. Our server, while very attentive and personable, needs to do better with his mask. All other staff I saw were 100%. A bit surprised that they haven't converted to paper menus.

Amazing food. Seemed our waiter was a bit overwhelmed because he didn't check on us but once.
Besides that the food was so good.

We enjoyed the food once we were served. The food took an hour after ordering. The waiter was apologizing to other people for taking so long for the food to be served along with our party of 3. I would return because I did enjoy the dinner but they really seem to be understaffed and need to be more attentive with a host greeting people as they arrive. We had to search for someone.

Arrived 5 minutes prior to reserved time. Was not even approached by a host or waiter for 20 minutes.
Once seated, received bread, no water.
Waited 30 minutes for a waiter to approach our table, but to no avail. So, we walked out. Not sure they even noticed.

4 of us went out to celebrate Christmas and we wanted to try this Italian place that we’ve never been to before. The restaurant has been around since the 70s and it had that cozy old school Italian family restaurant vibe. The food was very good and portions were generous. They were busy since it was a Saturday night and maybe that’s why our server seemed overwhelmed. We had to wait a while to even be approached initially and he made a joke about ignoring us some more if we wanted. Our water wasn’t refilled for a while so we asked another server to get us more water. Our food arrived and everything was delicious.

A charming “local” restaurant with really good food (eat the garlic bread) friendly service and reasonable prices. This has become our new local go to place. It’s comfortable and the noise level is low so you can actually talk to each other

The only thing that supercedes the excellent food was the SERVICE. Oscar was our guy and boy was he charming, attentive and has mastered the lost art of exemplary etiquette you can only dream of these days.

Highly recommend!

Food was tasty and a lot ... Drinks well made!

Service was slow at best ... don't expect to be greeted or acknowledged at the door.
They seem to be understaffed.

Their water glasses had dishwasher residue... not a good presentation for a restaurant.

Although the food was good, it's not a 2-hour type of meal.

My second visit but this time the food wasn’t as good as it was the first time. We arrived early and ordered soon after. The food lacked flavor, asparagus under cooked ( woody part still in take), and we were overall disappointed. I’m willing to try again only because our first visit it was fabulous
