This past winter, Berks County husband-and-wife team Brian and Sharlene Miller finally achieved their long held dream of opening their own restaurant.
Located on East Wyomissing Avenue in Mohnton, Briano’s Italiano is quickly becoming a delicious go-to option for local diners looking for high-quality, authentic pizza for great prices.
“We make everything homemade–everything from (our) boneless wings, to our fresh bread to our burgers,” said Sharlene Miller. She also noted that this week marks the start of their spaghetti dinner Wednesdays, featuring homemade pasta. “We also offer gluten free ravioli,” added Brian Miller.
The star of the restaurant’s tantalizing menu, however, is most definitely the pizza. Owner and head chef Brian Miller, who has spent over 35 years honing his talents at making handmade pizzas from scratch, was told for years that he should open his own restaurant.
“My husband is a great cook. He takes pride in everything he does–and he loves making pizza,” Sharlene Miller exclaimed, noting that Briano’s has a special window from the counter to the kitchen so that patrons can watch Miller expertly toss pizza dough.
When ordering a pizza from Briano’s, you can choose from several different types of crust–Grandma-style, Sicilian, or gluten-free Cauliflower–as well as a variety of toppings, all paired with Brian Miller’s freshly made pizza sauce.
Giving back to the community is a passion for the Miller, which they have done consistently since opening in January. “We are grateful to have been involved with fundraisers for Governor Mifflin,” said Brian, noting that they also have been involved with fundraisers for the Boy Scouts, the VFW, and have provided many gift certificates for various local charities and events.
They have also partnered with neighboring small business The Jar Bar for several craft show events, and are looking forward to another “Christmas in July” themed craft show on July 10. “We [also] have live music every other Friday from 8-11, hosted by local band Cheap Justice,” the Millers added.
Briano’s Italiano is open for both delivery and takeout Tuesday-Sunday from 11am-9pm, and the Millers are looking forward to serving their beloved Berks County for years to come. “[We] know what people like in a pizza!” said Sharlene.
Briano’s Italiano is located at 360 E Wyomissing Ave, Mohnton, PA 19540. A full menu can be found on their website: brianositaliano.com
