Bruno’s Trattoria, a little piece of Italy in Loreto

    While Clint craved fish tacos, the quiet, warm ambiance of Bruno's Trattoria lured me in.

    Bruno's Trattoria in Loreto.

    Strolling along the streets of Loreto, Baja on a cool November evening, I was looking for casual place to grab a quick bite. While Clint craved fish tacos, the quiet, warm ambiance of Bruno’s Trattoria lured me in.

    Although initially I had pasta on my mind, seeing the brick oven in the restaurant, Clint and I decided to order a pizza to share instead.

    Clint starts dinner as he always does in Loreto, with a cold beer.
    Caesar salad. I was surprised at the huge size of this salad. I was happy we ordered this to share. The romaine lettuce was kept in its original size. There was a nice kick of anchovies which I enjoyed.
    Pizza Margherita. The pizza is big and thin. Clint and I finished off 3 slices and took the rest to go. It was wonderful for lunch the next day.
    We sat on the thin, wrap-around patio outside, dining al fresco style. The windows and doors of Bruno's opens to allow for a indoor/outdoor feel.

    The restaurant is owned by Hector Morales, whom some of you may know from earlier Loreto Bay days, and his wife. The also own the adjoining wine bar.
