A CULINARY force on the Costa del Sol has celebrated its 20th birthday… and with a tribute from the mayor herself.
Angeles Munoz helped bosses of Italian restaurant Da Bruno celebrate in style, thanking them in person for their contribution to the social and economic development of the town, at a ceremony held at the restaurant.
Owners Bruno and Giuseppina Filippone have arranged numerous celebrations throughout 2014, including musical evenings, races, golf tournaments, and nights of opera.
“On behalf of the whole of the very large Da Bruno family, I would like to thank the Marbella town hall for this recognition,” said Bruno.
“The hard work that we put in every day to boost each of our establishments is made worthwhile when we see the satisfaction of our clients.”
Next to Bruno stood his wife, Giuseppina, and their children Giancarlo and Marcella, who now manage three of the six Da Bruno restaurants – Da Bruno A Casa, Da Bruno Mijas-Costa, and Da Bruno San Pedro.
Across all six restaurants – including the Da Bruno Pasta, which opened first in 1994, Da Bruno Sul Mare and Da Bruno Cabopino – the family can feed 1,100 diners at a time, and employ more than 200 staff.
