Bruno’s has been a Tyler tradition for nearly fifty years. While Italian subs and muffulettas are offered on the menu, as well as traditional Italian dishes such as spaghetti, ravioli, and lasagna (all of which are served with a dinner salad and a pizza dough roll), the mainstay and the renowned dish at Bruno’s is pizza. The pie is created with one type of crust, handmade and thick, and otherwise made to the customer’s taste and order. Though old school and basic in preparation and service, Bruno’s is up to speed with dietary restrictions and offers gluten-free and low-carb (cauliflower) crust. The pizza toppings include some unavailable in other Tyler pizzerias, including asparagus and anchovies. If by chance, you crave a topping not on the menu, don’t be surprised if the manager doesn’t procure the ingredient for you, no matter how obscure. Bruno’s original location near downtown Tyler is closing, but this location in South Tyler remains open and thriving.
