It’s classic Italian inspired by simpler times and family gatherings. Brunos Trattoria is in the heart of Brea Downtown and comes to you from the creators of the highly successful Cha Cha’s Latin Kitchen by Peter Serantoni and Don Myers. The new eatery is named after Chef Peter’s mentor and father, Papa Bruno. Peter has translated his fond childhood memories of simple and rustic cooking in Venice, Italy, into a menu of many beloved dishes alongside favorite Italian foods.
