Visited Bruno's on a one night stay in Dumfries. Excellent service from the phone booking to table service. Absolutely delicious food, immaculate presentation, very very tasty. The best cannelloni I've had in a long time. Restaurant and toilet facilities very clean. Bit shocked at the £7 price of a garlic bread but that was the only downside. Will return in... More

My partner brought me here for my birthday which definitely made it a special birthday because the food was surprisingly good. I say this because I had previously heard poor comments and never went to Brunos for that reason. It is slightly more costly than average for Dumfries Italian restaurants but certainly more than worth it. On first glance the... More

We visited on a Monday evening and were surprised at how busy it was. The restaurant is much larger inside than it looks from the road and has a really nice atmosphere. The staff are all really friendly and professional! The food was really nice, we both had the venison ravioli, which was lovely, then I had spaghetti vongole white... More

This restaurant is old school and the food is lovely. Pizzas are thin and crispy and the service is good. Happy to return.

Having not dined here for many years and on the strength of the great reviews on Tripadvisor, we visited. Sadly it was not as good as it once was. My husband's pizza topping looked as if it had been put on and then scraped off! My chicken breast fillet was flat instead of full and succulent. Our overall experience was... More

Excellent food with varied menu and wine list, the daily specials are a treat in themselves, prices are real value for money and staff could not be friendlier. A must if in Dumfries, be sure to book or you will be disappointed!

We have tried to get a table a few times and always fully booked..... Now we know why! From the moment we entered service was excellent. As we hadn't booked we were advised there would be a wait and were served drinks in the lovely comfortable bar area. We were served by a lovely friendly waitress. The food was amazing.... More

I've lived in Dumfries my whole life and can't believe this was my first visit to Bruno's. What a great restaurant. From the phone call I made to leaving the restaurant everything was handled professionally and very pleasantly. Waiting staff were polite, attentive and most of all not in your face. The food was amazing. Probably the best steak in... More

The best restaurant in Dumfries, wide range of food to suit all tastes. From pizza to a perfectly cooked steak, we go twice a month and have been for the past 3 years, NEVER had a bad meal yet. Highly recommended.
