We had a take out order for a veggie pizza. It was the best I've ever had. Green and black olives, red onions, broccoli, green pepper, artichokes, tomato, spinach, mushrooms, feta and mozerrella cheese. Very satisfied but I don't know about eating in.

Third time here. First time ok, second time not quite as good and today horrible! For me consistency is just as important as food quality and service. Will not be back!

I am sorry that you had a bad experience Richard. Could you please be more specific as to what the problem was? Poor food ? Poor service? What time of the day did you come in? If you would provide me with these details, it would help me correct the problem that you experienced. Thanx Jeff More

Our 2nd visit was as wonderful as our 1st! Delicious brick oven pizza, calzones and scrumptious salads with live music on the patio at sunset!

We ate at Bruno's twice during our trip. Once for lunch and once for dinner, very good both times. Try the BBQ chicken pizza. Relaxing patio overlooking some of the beautiful homes at Watercolor. Reasonable prices and not too crowded when we have been. Bruno's is now one of the places where we eat each 30A trip.

We stopped for the buffet lunch after a bike ride along 30A. The pizza and pasta on the buffet was very good. They will also make you any type of pizza you ask for. It also included a soda all for approximately $8 per person. This restaurant is a great value with really good food.

I cannot say enough positive things about the great food and service at Bruno's! It was our first time eating at Bruno's so the four of us in our family ordered four different personal pizzas so we could try a variety of the awesome choices. We selected the Grayton Beach (ribeye steak, bell peppers, purple onion) which my 13 year... More

Pizza, pasta, grinders, salads, beer and wine. They have outdoor seating as well as inside. The pizza's are big. You help yourself to the wine and tell them how much you had when you pay. The servers are very pleasant and personable.

Welcome, and thank you for choosing Bruno's Pizza! My family used to vacation here on the Emerald Coast when my brothers and I were just kids. After getting fired from a job in the city,Birmingham/Huntsville in the spring of 1990,I did what any irresponsible 23 yr. old would do, I packed up my car with my Golden Retriever, and moved to the beach!! My big plan was to wait tables here during the summer, and then spend the winters in Telluride, Colorado, waiting tables there. Well, as most plans go at that age,so did mine. I met a man named Joel Smith,he was the owner of the Wheelhouse restaurant. He wanted to open 30a's first pizza shop, but he had a problem. He had never made a pizza in his life, had no recipes, or even any employees.I had some experience working in a pizza shop while going to college, so I said sure I would give it a shot.I can still remember the very first pizza we made, it came out of the oven half-cooked, because I had no previous experience cooking with the old-school deck ovens that we had just turned on 1 hour before we opened the doors!!! When the lease came up for renewal in 1991, the landlord and Mr.Smith could not come to an agreement, so Mr. Smith asked me if I wanted to buy it? $12,500.00 from a bank with questionable loan guidelines and I was the proud owner of 30a's only pizzeria! I wish I had a good story about where the name Bruno's came from , but the truth is when we were trying to think of a name, the name of the grocery store chain in the south called Bruno's, sounded pretty good, so we went with it. I like to say that we are a classic old-school pizzeria in that we still make our own dough and sauce every day, we still hand-toss it into the air, and we have an open kitchen that allows you to watch your pie being made from start to finish. Our pizza is more expensive than any of our competitors, due to the fact that we buy the freshest produce, and the finest meats to put on our pizzas. You can find me still working the lunch shift most days, so come by and we will show you why we have been voted the best pizza on 30a for the last 23 years. THANK YOU!!!!!! Jeff
