Bruno’s Italian Restaurant
A blissful find in a fast-food-clogged area just outside Walt Disney World’s borders, Bruno’s is the sort of place where the namesake chef and owner can be heard back in the kitchen, singing as he cooks. You might be tempted to bypass the awning-shaded building filled with fluorescent-lit souvenir stalls, but soldier on and you’ll find well-sauced pasta, thin-crust pizzas, hand-filled cannoli, and tiramisu with just the right dash of alcohol. Bruno Lucidi himself makes regular appearances laden with plates of steaming specials not listed on the menu; if it’s available, don’t miss his braciola.
Tip: Bruno’s delivers to hotels and vacation homes around Disney.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
