Located outside the business district in the heart of Chinatown, Bruno’s Forno is home to the freshest Italian on the island. Everyone (and der mudda) knows if you don’t have fresh ingredients and you are making authentic Italian – FUGEDABOUTIT!
The fungi lasagna is a personal favorite. However, there are no bad selections featured on the menu. Trust me, I’ve tried them all. Every entrée includes a bagged salad with balsamic dressing and fresh baked bread. While patrons enjoy crisp greens, the owner prepares miniature lasagnas. All lasagnas are made to order and baked on site. Feel free to bring your favorite bottle of vino. There is no corkage fee, and cups are provided!
Tip: The tiny café style restaurant resembles an authentic Italian kitchen. Don’t go if you are in a hurry. I would not expect speedy service. This isn’t the Olive Garden. It is a more refined place, where people take their time, enjoy their company, and talk story over wine. It also takes about 20 minutes to make the food from scratch, but it is worth the wait. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
