Bruno's (Big O's Sports Room)

For more than 50 years the Itin family has offered its customers multi-national cuisine in West Lafayette. Bruno Itin's native Swiss recipes for cheese fondue, veal gschnetzels and weinerschnitzel along with classic Italian and American dishes are served in comfortable chalet style dining rooms or in the Purdue-inspired Big O Sports Room. The hot yeasty Bruno's Dough Balls are a knockout appetizer and their famous hand-tossed pizzas always have a lot of cheese and a great crust. Dessert pizzas feature apple butter, or peanut butter with chocolate chips. Lasagna and catfish are popular menu items, along with Clem's knackwurst or bratwurst wrapped in puff pastry ad served with sauerkraut or dumplings, pastas, sandwiches, salads and a wide selection of appetizers. An extensive children's menu is also offered. Bruno's has opened several additional sites in the Midwest, but the West Lafayette location on the levee is still lovingly owned and operated by the Itin offspring, Orlando, Junior and Tina.
