What started out as a single-restaurant concept, has grown into a phenomenon that has set the country on fire. 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 NY comes from Florida.”
Unveiled in 2002, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza introduced the concept of coal oven pizza to south Floridians. Led by founder, Anthony Bruno, the 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, the first restaurant was launched in Fort Lauderdale, with a strong, successful response. Over the years, the restaurant has continued to grow in popularity and boasts an almost cult-like following.
Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza serves up award-winning (USA TODAY), authentic Coal Fired Pizza, Oven Roasted Chicken Wings, homemade meatballs, Eggplant Marino (named after partner and NFL hall of famer Dan Marino) and Anthony’s Classic Italian Salad. With over 60 locations, across the country, Anthony’s has become a household name, delivering the signature crisp, “well done” taste.
