They put all the effort into the food. I had spaghetti and meatballs for lunch. It came with fresh, warm Italian bread. I was solo and wanted good home made food. I had to force myself to save bread for the red sauce to come. The meatballs were great and cooked in the sauce. Quick, but thorough... read more

Russo's is a good, old fashioned neighborhood restaurant. It is not fancy, but for me, it's all about the food, and the food is great. It is very reasonably priced. Looking forward to my next visit.

I have never had a bad meal at Russo's. This hub for Italian comfort food always serves up exactly what I expect: a steaming plate of cheesy perfection. Their red sauce is so good you can buy it jarred! This is where I go if I'm hankering for eggplant and don't want to be disappointed. Thin, delicately breaded and fantastic.

Long time patron of Russo's Grill so I know what to expect. A combination of old family recipes mixed with Chef Mike's new dishes of culinary delight. Never have a bad meal but times change and dishes are quite pricey for grill fare.

We find we have much better luck with getting our food to go from Russo's in Amsterdam then going there - We got the Chicken Parm with penne and meatballs - the homemade bread is really good - the dinner were good too and ready when they said they would be.

I've been eating at a local restaruant religiously but decided to venture out today to try something new. I came here because I always say the parking lot full. It's for a reason. This is a great local feeling Italian restaurant. Don't expect amazing ambiance but expect great food. I had the linguini and clams and I was very happy... More

A few months ago my uncle passed from a severe stroke. The family decided to go to Russo's for our after funeral lunch. A sad time but a pleasant experience for all who attended. The food and service was great.

Kind of disappointed by what was a family recommended neighborhood pizzeria restaurant. Dinner portions looked huge, but pizza has really thick bread like crust, not NYC style at all. Unlikely to stop back and try dinners, with so many known Italian eateries of higher quality.
