Anthony Bruno, who grew up on Long Island in a traditional Italian family, could not find a good, authentic pizza when he moved to Florida, so he made his own. Now, he’ll tell you the “best pizza in New York comes from Florida.”

Growing up on Long Island in a traditional Italian family, Anthony’s passion for great food started at a very young age.
His father, Anthony Sr., having worked in restaurants throughout his life, had a dream to open his own restaurant. That dream became a reality when the family moved to South Florida in 1982 and father and son debuted Anthony’s Runway 84, a full-service Italian restaurant and lounge near the Fort Lauderdale airport. More than three decades later, Anthony’s Runway 84 remains one of the area’s most celebrated and popular restaurants.
When Anthony Jr. realized that he could not find good pizza in Florida, he took matters into his own hands and in 2002, introduced the concept of coal oven pizza to South Florida! Anthony’s vision was to create coal oven pizza delivering a crisp, well done taste, that rivaled the ones he enjoyed while growing up in New York. Armed with authentic recipes that had been passed down through generations, Anthony launched his first location in Fort Lauderdale. It caught on like wild fire! In 2012, Anthony brought his coal fired pizza back home to NY. Now, he’ll tell you the “best pizza in New York comes from Florida.” Today, Anthony’s has over 60 locations and boasts a cult-like following.
