Bruno’s Ristorante has been a fixture in the neighborhood for many years. We’ve enjoyed entertaining everyone from nearby residents to business guests to the Dallas Cowboys (until recently) and those who travel from further away.

Bruno Ceka started this establishment over 25 years ago, and has been actively involved since its beginning. Bruno is an enthusiastic businessman who loves working in and serving the local community. He’s had several business ventures in the area over the years, but his passion has always been here, at Bruno’s. Most days you’ll see him welcoming you in the dining room.

Halfway meeting place to meet our son, and we could not have been more pleased!
What a great experience! We will go back! Loved the neighborhood vibe, the music, the glassed in patio seating, of course the food...but especially Johnny!

Overall the food was good, but not great. We had the crab claw appetizer. The claws are larger than those used at most restaurants of this type, so expect fewer. There were 5. One of us had the veal parmigiana (great) and the other the filet (fair). Our biggest complaint is that the entire main seating area was empty because they were seating everyone in the small side room. We were basically on top of each other and could hear everyone else’s conversations. Definitely no thought to spacing diners out. Will go back to give it another chance. Maybe was just an off night.

Good local place. Would frequent regularly if we lived in the area. Enjoyed the food and service. The restaurant was a little noisy due to large group in a relatively small room.

Everything was great. We were in a small section. The other party in the section was large and celebrating a business deal. They were fine, but it was a bit loud.
I suspect this is an exception and not common.

have been here a couple of times. This place is in a strip mall and doesn't look like much, but when you are inside it is a quiet charming place. The back patio faces a canal and walking trail. The service was very good, the food was authentic, and the wine list was good and reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

Bruno's offers a very diverse menu, and is well priced. Lobster ravioli were outstanding, although there were only four of them. Standard Italian fare, service was excellent.

Bruno's is a perfect choice for classic Italian cuisine with a warm and welcoming ambience. We were seated at the window with a view of a pretty canal running alongside the restaurant. Service from Efron was superb, the cocktails were excellent, and the food was very good. I had the Pasta Mia with sausage and meatballs, and my wife have the chicken with artichoke. Bruno's even featured live music (pianist), a special treat given that it had been months since we've dined indoors, let alone been accompanied by a live musician. The pianist was quite accomplished, providing a nice mix including everything from the American songbook to Billy Joel and Elton John. We're new to the neighborhood, and we're looking forward to many return visits to this wonderful establishment.

Bruno’s is my favorite restaurant without exception. Everything is always perfect. Bruno greets you at the door, we have a cocktail at the bar, enjoy the live piano, then take our seats overlooking the canal. Another cocktail. Then some wine while we enjoy the specials of the day. Capped with tiramisu or creme brûlée and coffee. It doesn’t get better!
