Broginos Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We have been going to Broginos over the years and found to food to be consistently good and proportions reasonable. The only less favorable comment is they seem to need a little more help or coordination with the help they have. We've not been there for a while, and it appears they have had a change in personnel. We had reservations, and though we could see the table was ready, we stood at the front door for close to ten minutes before being seated. After being seated, it was more than five minutes before being attended to. Thought we were not in any hurry, it seems the a long for the serving of our food. Nonetheless, that would not alter our plans for returning. The person serving us was quite pleasant and attentive.
Been coming here for over 25 years. Love the food, love the decor, love the service (Michael and Patima are the best!!!). Great Italian food and plenty of it. They always say to the kitchen, "Bread for 6" when they see me come in, hehehe. Thanks for all the fond memories and delicious dinners Brogino's!
A nice, quaint restaurant. A full meal includes garlic bread, soup AND salad with entree. The Chicken Picatta was excellent Service was very good. Two full meals with two cocktails came to $63.00. Very reasonable considrring I also had leftovers for lunch the following day. We will be returning.
consistent and established menu
new specials including salmon special are spaot on
new outside patio is great new addition for the long-time neighborhood institution
service level is superb with Michael leading the way
eggplant and cacciatore/marsala items lead the way
interior could use a refresh.
We have been to Broginos several times over the past year. Its a neighborhood restaurant that has been there since the early 70s and its well worth the visit. This time to music was louder than usual and detracted a little from the experience. Their Fettuccini Alfredo is one of the best anywhere. And the bread is wonderful. Always a lovely experience to dine here even with the noise level this time.
Service is the secret. They are awesome. Food is consistently prepared and flavorful. Chicken Cacciatore and Eggplant Florentine are truly outstanding.
Wide menu range.
Could use a grilled or sautéed fish entree Italian style.
Place could really use a refresh decor wise including restrooms.
Fun and comfortable.
This was a surprising find. Really liked the decor and welcome feeling of the place. Found that the music was too loud. It's a small place and we had to raise our voices to hear each other, as other people seemed to be doing as well. Evidenced by being able to hear other conversations competing with the music. Otherwise, nice presentation of food. Fairly tasty.
So, I am a local and used to often dine at Brogino's. A neighborhood walk weeks before my reservation, I peaked in to show to a friend and he immediately fell in love. I surprised him with thinking we were going to another local and he was immediately surprised.
He loves the Alfredo
He loves the memorabilia
He loves the service and community
He wants this to become a weekly local
even if it means salads all week!
Known for their martinis and Italian cuisine, Broginos is a welcome departure from the busy-ness of Artesia Blvd. The décor puts you in the mood for pasta, chianti, or whatever makes you feel like getting into a gondola and floating away. I came back to try what was one of my favorite places years ago, and found that the quality had not diminished a bit. I tried a Combination (of everything) Parmigiana and was not only pleased, but filled. My wife had the Chicken Marsala and kept eating after claiming she'd had enough. The prices are reasonable and the plates are full. Enjoy.
Brogino's is a true neighborhood gem.
Friendly and knowledgeable Service is optimum here. small, intimate, excellent extensive high quality bar and great food. Facility is showing its edge but very clean and sticking to its roots for good fine and drinks at great valued pricing.
Menu is extensive - and consistent quality and value - especially with soup and salads.
Pastas, marsala, scallopini,and eggplant are our favorites.
We are consistent return customers and recommend it to anyone in the area for lunch or dinner.
Bread came to the table warm. Oil and vinegar were on a plate without asking. No ground pepper, but we didn't ask. Bread was good.
Soup was simple, not too hot, and tasty.
The salad had a bit too much dressing (for me). Ask for it on the side. Also it was pretty simple, with common greens, and some beans and such, definitely something you would just make at home.
Caprese using store bought tomatoes, very cold and crisp. I prefer softer and closer to an heirloom, if available.
We got the portabello mushroom ravioli. Tasty, but like the salad, too much sauce. The sauce was very heavy and the ravioli was drowning in it. Again, this is a taste preference and I wasn't so keen on it.
Food is definitely nothing to write home about, but it wasn't too bad.
Waitress was awesome. Attentive and polite. The bus-person was more short/gruff, but definitely attentive and they cleared the plates quickly. Never felt rushed, though, don't get that idea. All for timing went very well.
Ambience is nice with planty of tschotckies on the wall and a cool bar. Small place overall.
Definitely worth checking out on a night just wanting to try something new and casual.
I wanted to try the Broginos after seeing it for years. It is very fair to say the least. The service was ok once we were seated but our reservation Open Table or not didn't do much for us as we stood for over 10 minutes without ANYONE coming to acknowledge us. The waitress was nice once we got seated but really?
