Bruno's Bar & Restaurant

Well known from his time at Knockvicar marina, Sardinian chef Bruno Boe’s many fans happily followed him to this new location in the centre of Boyle town centre.

Now located in two-storey corner premises on The Crescent (formerly The Moving Stairs), there's a bar as well as the restaurant and the extra space and central location allow much longer opening hours, making this a place for visitors to seek out during the day as well as for dinner or an evening drink.

But some things have remained unchanged, and you may still expect the warm welcome and authentic Italian food - along with some sound renditions of Irish classics such as Irish stew and bacon & cabbage, too.

Pleasant and and comfortable, with menus that are not overlong but are varied enough to have something for everyone, specialities include a tasty Italian platter of parma ham, seasoned sausages Napoli salami, olives and grilled vegetables that can be a starter for one or a sharing plate for two (€8.50/€15.00); along with some crusty bruschetta (€6.50) and a glass or two of wine, it makes a sociable start for an enjoyable meal.

A number of menus are offered, including both daytime and evening bar menus, a midweek 2-course dinner and an early bird as well as an à la carte.

Main courses on the à la carte include some great steaks (from about €21.50) that will be a welcome sight for people coming in off the river or after a day's sightseeing, and some appealing fish dishes with Mediterranean flavours.

Like most Italian restaurants, Bruno's is very family friendly, with a relaxed attitude - and separate pizza and pasta menus that are especially appealing to younger tastes. 

Bruno offers real Italian cooking and fair prices, complemented by warmly professional service - a very welcome addition to the dining options in Boyle. 

Open Tue-Thu 12-10, Fri-Sat 12-11, Sun 12.30-10. Mid-week 2-course Set Menu 21.90 (with a beer or glass of wine); also early D, pizza and pasta menus and à la carte. Day and evening bar menus. Children welcome. Private dining/events. Live music. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
