Our experience at this Loreto eatery was time and money well spent. After a few days of eating local we developed a pizza Jones and headed to Bruno's. Considering the small size and developing tourist infrastructure of Loreto, we didn't have high expectations but were deliciously surprised.
We had Bruno's signature pizza -- mushrooms, pepperoni, artichoke hearts, and a variety of tasty local cheeses, including an off-the-hook goats milk. My Chief Spousal Unit (CSU) had white wine from Argentina and I ordered Coke Light (Diet Coke in the States). I mention the drinks for a couple of reasons: The wine was outstanding; Bruno's didn't have Coke Light and our server hustled down the street to another restaurant and returned in mere moments with my drink. No muss, no fuss, no attitude. All of Bruno's pizzas are 14-inchers and ours was literally among the best pies we've enjoyed anywhere.
Pizza Jones sated, we began to slow down, talk with our fantastic server, and enjoy the look of Loreto as day turned to night. We were treated to another a surprise, an offering of Bruno's flan dessert. Truth be told, I'm no fan of flan, but the caramel-coated, thick and flavorful, delightfully textured wedge we had at Bruno's was another tasty, lip-smacking surprise, and the polar opposite of the gloppy drek served in stateside restaurants.
And the kicker was the bill -- $17.70!
There are a surprising number of good restaurants in tiny Loreto and Bruno's Trattoria ranks among the best.
FYI: Bruno's, like the majority of businesses in Loreto, is cash only.
