Get to Know Napa’s Trusted, Local Auto Repair Shop

Success Was In the Cards

Over two decades later, Mike and Ryvonne Bruno established ACE Automotive & Truck Repair in Napa with the goal of taking care of people and their vehicles. They determined to do this by upholding the highest standard of service, performing quality work, and giving people honest answers to their vehicle questions and concerns. Over two decades later, they continue striving toward their goal, and have built a successful business in the process.

Today, ACE Automotive & Truck Repair continues to expand thanks to our great customers and highly qualified and dedicated staff. Mike has been focusing on training and managing our team to ensure our shop can always be relied upon for quality auto repairs with a smile, today and generations into the future.

It’s important to me to train and prepare my team for the future. I want to ensure stable jobs for them, and a stable environment for our customers. Thank you to everyone who has helped ACE become the shop it is today—and will be tomorrow.

Meet Your Automotive Care Experts

  • Mike Bruno
    Mike BrunoOwner & Manager

    Mike Bruno is a fourth-generation Napa Valley native with 33 years of auto repair experience. He graduated from Justin Sienna High School and the Napa Valley Regional Occupational Program for automotive repair, and once he began working in the auto repair industry, his education continued. Mike now has a degree from Universal Technical Institute, an apprenticeship completion with Aerospace Machinist, coursework in Automotive Theory with Contra Costa College, certificates from ASE as a Master Mechanic in Automotive, Truck, and Advanced Diagnostics, many other auto and truck training, technical, and management certificates and courses under his belt.
    As a shop owner and technician, Mike loves helping people solve problems, and educating his staff and customers on independent car care. His goal is to provide a stable, reliable auto repair shop that his employees and the community can depend on for the best the automotive industry has to offer.

  • Ryvonne Bruno
    Ryvonne BrunoOwner & Manager

    Alongside Mike, Ryvonne has been part of ACE Automotive and Truck Repair since the beginning. Educated at Pilchuck Glass School and as a fine arts major at CCAC, she is a master glass blower who has put her passion on hold to make ACE Automotive a success. She runs the back of the house, handling finance, marketing, and basically everything else the business needs, while also being a great mom (her number one goal).
    In fact, Ryvonne is second-generation in the automotive industry. Her father operated gas stations, auto repair shops, and a towing business called Bonser's Towing for over 40 years, making her no stranger to the business. She also has a natural talent for pleasing people, with her outstanding staff lunches made from the heart serving as a prime example.

  • Bernie Slack
    Bernie SlackService Advisor

    Our service adviser, Bernie Slack, has built a 20+ year career in the automotive industry as a technician, team leader, foreman, and all-around good guy. Here at ACE Automotive, he started as a technician, but was quickly promoted to service adviser based on his outstanding attention to detail and high regard for people and their possessions. While we did lose one of our great mechanics when Bernie was promoted, we gained a huge asset to run the front of our operation.
    In his new management role, Bernie continues helping our technicians while providing friendly, honest, and outstanding service to our customers. He always gets work done, but never sacrifices our high ethical standards. To list all of Bernie's qualifications would be lengthy, as he has many ASE certifications and is a Master Ford technician. Recently, he completed an intense communication course and service adviser course.

  • Angelina Bruno
    Angelina BrunoOffice & Shop Assistant

    Angelina Bruno is Mike and Ryvonne's youngest daughter. She was born and raised around the shop, and now at the age of 15, is a member of the team. Early on, she was Mike's “assistant,” handing him tools, rags, and parts, and now her duties include helping Ryvonne in the office, filing and reconciling accounts. For the past 10 years, Angelina's favorite sports have been baseball and softball. She continually impresses her family with her understanding of the game.
