Three of our party of 10 ordered the cheeseburger--at approximately $7.00--just for the burger and a slice of cheese--nothing else. You had to pay extra for lettuce and tomato, onions, etc. at $.79 for each topping. No mayo or mustard--just an overcooked, dry burger. It was hard to choke the thing down it was so dry. If we wanted fries,... More

Consistently prepared food with no surprises. Russos is known for their pizza and its always very good with your traditional toppings. All of your favorite basics are on the menu including chicken parm, sausage dinners and egg plant. Their oversized roast beef is still as good as it was back in the 60's.Its a local hometown bar & grill surrounded... More

Once again we went to Russo's of Amsterdam - were going to get our meal to go but then some friends also wanted to join us - so we called them and it was no problem changing our order to there rather than to go - were seated right away and our food came out shortly - love the home... More

Russo's is a classic Italian place in every way. The red sauce is delicious; they specialize in thin, crispy-fried eggplant. Their bread is all homemade, and it arrives on the table pre-buttered. I've never seen that anywhere else. We stopped in Russo's because we were driving all day, and we couldn't find anywhere else in Amsterdam to eat -- but... More

The best Italian food north of the Capital District region in NY State, Russo's is a family atmosphere, noting fancy, just great food in a warm and welcoming environment. Their bread is from a local baker, and comes pre-buttered. Where else can you get that kind of service? The entrees range from simple Italian dishes to specials for special occasions... More

My husband and I were in Scotia, NY shopping at Aunt Katie's Consignment an since we aren't from the area we asked the lovely cashier to recommend a restaurant. She quickly suggested Russo's. I had briefly checked TripAdvisor for suggestions and did read the reviews on Russo's. I have to say, when I read the reviews I wasn't sold. When... More
