About the restaurant

We have been to Italy and studied it's masters. We have tasted (a lot) of wine. We have searched for the best ingredients, and learned and perfected the best recipes. Why wouldn't we be the best Italian experience in the Vail Valley!
The idea of growing fresh fruits and vegetables in the Rocky Mountains might seem crazy to some, but for us it is just another step in perfecting our craft. Our Chefs and Gardeners labor tirelessly to bring you the best produce and ingredients available seasonally
We try each day to live and work with a purpose. Each step of your evening has been pondered. We try hard to bring you the food you crave and anticipate your every need while you are dining with us. From the stuzzichino when you step in our door to the parting sips of limoncello.

About the restaurant
FOOD - DRINKS - FRIENDS....the Milanese Apericena comes to Denver!

Voghera prides itself in being the first and only ristorante offering APERICENA in the United States. Apericena is a modern Milanese style of dining and is derived from the words APERITIVO (happy hour) and CENA (dinner): a convivial experience which embraces small plates and wine to encourage sharing and the opportunity to savor different flavors and dishes. An entire meal can be composed of smaller dishes or sample one or two alongside larger, entrée size plates. Our cuisine focuses on Northern Italian and Milanese dishes, such as "Risotto alla Milanese" - Arborio rice simmered with saffron, alongside a vast variety of meat and cheese charcuterie boards, and other Italian staples like Tagliatelle alla Bolognese.

The whole evening was amazing, my only negative comment is that I ordered the Ravioli and the serving size was very small compared to the other dishes we had throughout the evening

The food and service was absolutely fantastic. From the time we arrived until the time we left the staff was pleasant, helpful and attentive. The spinach salad was one of the best salad I have ever ate. And the lasagna was so delicious with a cheese sauce.

The calamari and julienned zucchini with marinara sauce appetizer was a scrumptious dinner and large enough to take home and enjoy for lunch the next day. I have never had anything like it before. It is light and clean, and the marinara sauce is among the best I've tasted.

Bruno’s is like your neighborhood Italian place. The food is good and they will make a dish to order if they have the sauces and pasta you require. We were served by the owner who was very nice so the service was perfect. Also, after a half hour, we were the only people in the room! (not always the case at this neighborhood favorite but it was snowing and Denver Restaurant Week starts Friday) So it was quiet and very comfortable. Easy parking in back of the restaurant in their parking lot. Always a plus when eating in downtown Denver.

Good food and good selection, good reasonably priced wine list. Service was very good, food a little slow to come out, but well worth the wait.
