It's at the quiet side of Culver City. The food is authentic Italian with good, fresh ingredients cooked simply. The prices of menu items were very reasonable. The wine list is not long but the choices were excellent. They picked some good wines that are also excellent values. The service was excellent and much better than what you'd expect for a "trattoria". We were there on a Friday night at 7:30 and the restaurant was less than half full, which was a bit surprising, given how good it was. We will definitely come back.

Great food, well-priced. Pretty good wine list with a wide range of choices. We met friends there for dinner because we needed to find a place halfway between Burbank and Torrance; based on the reviews, we chose Brunello, and were very happy we did. They weren't that busy the night we were there, so we sat for quite a while. The staff kept providing water for us, and we never felt rushed. The only issue is parking, which can be a little challenging. We found a space in the neighborhood, but the sidewalks are old and deformed from tree roots, so walking might be difficult for some. All in all, we were happy with our experience and will definitely return.

Family-owned, very comfortable and welcoming environment. Service was good. Food was great. We were well taken care of in every way. Easy parking (which is not always the case as Culver City gets more popular). We stayed for nearly 3 hours and it passed quickly, which is always a good sign of a great dining experience.

If I ate out everyday I would be eating here. Brunello alone is all personality but it's a family affair and it's like being at home eating home cooked meals!

Being Italian and growing up with Nonna's food, I can attest to how delicious Brunello's food is. It's a family owned restaurant with momma as the chef and dad, the bread maker. Their children also work there and the other servers have been with the family business for year. This says a lot. I meet with my former colleagues once a month and this is our go to restaurant. Affordable and guaranteed fresh and delicious. The pizza is yummy and the bread is delish. They renovated about 7 months ago and the decor is modern and simple. Give it a try.
