This fantastic restaurant is a real home from home Italian gem. First class service and the food is superb. A real homely feel about the place.

Had an amazing night out at Bruno's with my wife for my birthday. Lovely family run restaurant with a romantic setting. The food is always beautiful. There is a great pasta supper menu too which is great value for money.

Firstly this review is 100% genuine. Have been here recently with a partner. Found the restaurant to be friendly and with a nice atmosphere.Think it may need some updating though especially the carpets which looked a little grubby.Recommend a steam clean asap. Meals were nice but I was alarmed at the price of their starters ie Salmon starter £9...thats expensive... More

This is my favourite restaurant. The food is consistently good and the staff vigilant and attentive as well as being friendly. All the flavours in the dishes are so fresh, I have so many ' favourites '. The tiramisu is the best outside of Italy and the spaghetti carbonara is to die for. The pizzas are perfection with nice thin... More

This is my very favourite restaurant in Dumfries. Staff are attentive, friendly and welcoming. Food is delicious! Steaks, pastas, pizzas, I've tried most of the menu and it's amazing. My one, small, critique would be that the decor could do with modernising.

We have eaten here many times and the food has always been very good. The staff never make you feel anything is too much effort for them. Once in cold weather it was a bit chilly but apart from that no complaints

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

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.
