By now, just about everybody in Central Florida who loves Pizza and just loves good food in general, has heard about or has been to Pizza Bruno. 

If you have not been yet, or are in the minority of people who don't know about one of Orlando’s best pizza places, then this article is for you.

Pizza Bruno was opened as a Neapolitan style pizzeria that is a hidden gem off the beaten path where tradition meets creativity. Pizza Bruno isn't just a pizza place, it's a passion with Italian roots and family traditions from Chef/Owner, Bruno Zacchini who developed a passion and philosophy for great food.

Although Pizza Bruno is wildly popular, it has for the most part, remained relatively underground in the Orlando area, but that is part of the craze and lure of such an establishment. Often times places like this become the stuff of legends and folklore, and when you finally get to try it, you are let down. That is not the case here. Chef Bruno and his team are doing their best to keep the food and experience magical.

The Neapolitan style pizzas are made with a simple dough, fermented at cold temperatures for up to 48 hours, topped with the best ingredients and cooked in 90 seconds at temperatures of up to 1000 degrees. The base dough and sauce are both vegan, and they also offer Daiya Vegan mozzarella as well as a gluten free crust for a $2.00 up charge.

Just as Italian food has always emphasized a simplicity in flavors and ingredient driven dishes, Pizza Bruno treats their pizzas the same. From the delicious California tomatoes & sea salt they use in the sauce to the locally sourced Italian sausage they use, they pride themselves on letting the ingredients shine and the food speak for itself.

The Pies here are baked in a wood fired oven that is fed with kiln dried red oak that helps the food take on a beautiful leopard spotted char and get that unique wood fired flavor. They do serve more than pizza at Pizza Bruno, and the garlic knots have become legendary...if you can get them, as they are made in limited batches. Other items include, Octopus, Wood Fired Cauliflower, Charcuterie and Cheese boards, Meatballs and salads.

Beer, Wine, and Amaro cocktails are served up at Pizza Bruno. They have a $20 corkage fee per 750ml of wine or beer. This is my favorite local craft brewery Crooked Can with Cloud Chaser. 

The Heirloom Caprese with local heirloom tomatoes, fresh Mozzarella, basil and balsamic glaze is a great way to start your visit, and it’s big enough to share.

Wood Fired Cauliflower is served in a hazelnut romesco sauce and topped with golden raisin agrodolce and Pecorino Romano, and it is simply amazing.

Quite simply one of the best Octopus dishes I have ever had. The octopus at Pizza Bruno is wine braised, wood-fire roasted and served with a seasonal vegetable accompaniment.

This Blanca Pizza with Mozzarella, Lemon Ricotta, Garlic, Rosemary, Arugula, and Pecorino Romano is just fantastic and full of great flavors. 

The Ninety Two Pizza is pretty damn spectacular as well with Red Onion, Oregano, Chili Flakes, Olives, Peppers, Mushrooms, Italian Sausage, Pecorino and Mozzarella.

Do not miss out on any of the Cannoli’s served up at Pizza Bruno, they are all next level delicious. This is a Nutella Cannoli with nutella, chocolate chips and sliced almonds.

This is a Classic Cannoli with a classic Cannoli filling, chocolate chips and powdered sugar.

I saved the best for last, with this Caramel Delight Cannoli that is out of this world wonderfully delicious with coconut mascarpone, chocolate covered cannoli shell, toasted coconut and caramel sauce..,it’s pretty much a cannoli from heaven above.

Chef Bruno and his staff strives to push creativity & raise the bar for the food they serve up here, to bring Orlando something different & unique and keep up a cult like following. This place is just plain good and you will not regret anything on the menu.

Pizza Bruno does not have a phone line, so they do not deliver, nor can you call ahead and place a take out order. They do however, allow for you to order to go with in house takeout, online ordering, and they will deliver via Uber Eats only. 


And yes, I went later in the evening on a Saturday night, and they were out of the legendary garlic knots...It happens, so I'll Be Back...Soon!
