It has been awhile since we have been to Russo's of Amsterdam - it is because of this one waitress who is the worst - she loves to ignore you and make you wait - this time was no different - we sat there for 15 mins she never came over to get our order - no matter how long... More

My wife and I shared an antipast salad with my "fish" on the side. We each ordered a cold sandwich; mine roast beef, her's turkey. The bread served with the salad and sandwiches is to die for.

A group of 9 stopped at Russo's for dinner on a Saturday afternoon. I called ahead and requested a table in the bar section of the restaurant. They had the table set up for us when we arrived. Our waitress was extremely helpful and friendly, and was quite efficient at taking our orders and bringing our food and drink. The... More

If you're looking for an informal family-friendly, easy to find hometown experience, Russo's is an excellent choice. Photos on the walls tell the story of many local residents and the quality of the food is a testament to their long history in the city. It is a popular gathering place for sports enthusiasts, local politicos, families and even date nighters.... More

I've eaten here numerous times and have always enjoyed it. I'm a repeat customer whenever I'm in the area. The service is friendly and prompt and the food is always delicious.

Coworker kept talking about this great little Italian restaurant. Finally got to check it out this past weekend. Décor is old school (reminds me of how Luigi's in Schenectady use to look). Food was great, sauce was very good. Hard to find a local place with good, homemade sauce and meatballs. Eggplant parm was very good, too. Bread looked to... More

When I go back to Amsterdam for a visit, I always make sure a trip to Russo's is on the menu!! This is a place that my Dad use to take me to for the pitch tournaments that were held in the restaurant. I loved being there and have their famous pizzas. Loved the corner pieces! If it's pizza your... More
