Bruno grew up in Florida and spent summers on the Jersey shore where he first stepped into a kitchen at the age of 13 slinging pizza slices & cheese steaks to the beach goers & boardwalk crowds. Having moved to Orlando in 2002 for culinary school and thus began his culinary career.
Working with many notable local chefs & developing his craft, he eventually opened up the legendary food cart, Bruno's Bites. Making a name for himself around town, Bruno moved on to help open Cask & Larder followed by time as the Executive Chef of Oblivion Taproom.
During this time, Bruno took on a consulting position with Third Wave Cafe in New Smyrna Beach where he made a name for himself & his wood fired pizzas. Bruno remained at Third Wave Cafe for about 3 years enabling it's current status as one of the best restaurants in NSB.
On the prowl for a location to call his own, January 2016 would bring his dream to fruition. By March, the space was acquired & the re-vamp began. Fast forward to June 25th, the oven was hot, the dough was ready, & the doors were opened.
