Welcome to Brugos Pizza, lovingly owned and run by Troy and myself, Christina Luisa (Cefalu) McDonald, Cave Creek residents. Growing up the way I did, I want our place to feel like you are coming over to our house for dinner!
You see, my Dad really did come over on a boat from Sicily. My mother was the first American to marry into my father’s otherwise all Sicilian family! She learned to cook from my Aunt who didn’t speak any English and Mom didn’t speak Italian! Which is why all the sauce recipes are authentic. Some were never written down until now. I come from a long and time honored line of Italian family owned restaurants (some who are very famous, way more famous then we will ever be!). But it’s more than the traditional and then the not so traditional food here. We want you to feel at home, and hope you do.
Here’s how. Our people will become your friends. Attentive without being overbearing, or arrogant. You’re not, were not. We want you to enjoy yourselves and consider it a blessing to take care of you. That’s how I was raised. Each week, Troy feature’s Tuesday Brew Night. All beers are half off all night, and Wednesday is Wine Night when all of my wines by the glass or bottle are half off. Happy Hour (in the bar) is perhaps one of the best around, look at it too.
So welcome to our gorgeous bistro, built just for you and order a fabulous glass of wine, or a famous Italian Margarita while you peruse the sumptuous menu. Then relax among great friends and family as you listen to Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, and Rosemary Clooney, inside the bistro, or out on our patio.
Then decide if you are wanting homemade lasagna or if you're in the mood for pizza. Ours is a secret recipe Roman style using dough that takes time to proof before we hand spin into pies that are both chewy and crispy. Toppings are seasonal and procured locally whenever possible: savory cured meats, fresh and imported cheeses, homemade sauces, local produce and greens. And at Brugos, we make our premium Pizza Dough fresh, right here and use real Whole Milk Mozzarella Cheese. Voted Best Pizza more than a few times over. After trying us, we hope you will agree and find it among your favorites too! Prego!
Hours: Sunday through Thursday from 4 to 9:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 4pm. to 9:30 p.m. Dinner Specials ready at 5!
Troy & Christina (Cefalu!) McDonald. Heading into our fifth year!
