Bruno dough and Pizza were awesome! This place never disappoints. Took the pizza back to our hotel and watched a little ice skating.

As Purdue alums, we love to take the kids to Bruno's when we visit campus. We were there on a Friday night, and the place was hopping after a Purdue men's basketball victory. The pizza was fantastic, and the soup and salad were delicious too. We will definitely come back next time we are in town.

I've eaten at Bruno's many times over the years. It's a local iconic place. Stopped in tonight and had a Stromboli. Nothing fancy, but tasty.

My husband and I were visiting Purdue over the weekend and decided to eat at Bruno's. I am a Purdue Alum and have not eaten here since I was a student. The pizza was delicious! The 12" was enough for both of us. I also highly recommend the cheddar cheese balls for an appetizer! Friendly service and an ecletic atmosphere!

We were looking for a nice place to eat, saw this and thought we would try it. The menu looked good,the reviews were good. However when we went in to eat it was disappointing. The restaurant itself was dated and had all kinds of German decor. It said it was an Italian restaurant. When I ask for some of the... More

Parent's weekend, yet no line??? Excellent pizza (being from NY/NJ we know good pizza). Small 12" pies good for two. Caesar Salad filling. Local beer (People's) on tap. BEST pizza in West Lafayette and probably Lafayette too.

Great atmosphere friendly staff. Pizza is good- must try the " bruno dough". They keep your glass full with a smile. Enjoyable visit.

When: Saturday, Sept 3rd. About 7:45pm We were pleasantly surprised that we could just walk right in and get seated (party of five) since this was the first football weekend for Purdue. This was the first first visit for one adult and one kid. All left happy. We decided to order and eat family-style, so we ordered a few house... More

Bruno's offers pizza, pasta, and other Italian fare. It is a West Lafayette institution. It's a great place to meet up with friends.

This place is the center of the Universe for pizza lovers. Phenomenal on site hand tossed dough, superb sauce, excellent sausage, fresh cheese and a plethora of toppings make for the finest pizza you have ever experienced. If you are not a big Purdue fan, you might want to be blind folded during the entirety of your vist. The entire... More
