Bruna's food is consistantly delicious and authentic. Staff is friendly, and knowledgeable. Being Italian from NYC, I can say this is the best Italian in town. Restaurant is medium sized, with a great bar in front (good wines) and a few bar tables. They can accomodate larger parties, though call for reservations with more than 6 people. Atmosphere is homey, though the service is as precise as high profile (priced) restaurants. Great selection of classics, with several nouveau items added. Daily specials are many and varied, and always done to perfection, in the best tradition of NYC's Little Italy. Many meat-free meals also great! Try to go during the spring Italian fest, held in the street right in front of the restaurant! I've patronized EVERY Italian spot in the area, but only Bruna's has been my family's choice for over 10 years.

Very simple, well prepared Italian food. Not too fancy, and not too experimental, but great every time. The house specialties and daily specials are always winners. The 12 table restaurant with a bar up front fits right in to the old time neighborhood.
