Lamb Chops at Russo's

We ate at Russo's Italian Restaurant again on Friday evening. My husband loves lamb & lamb chops was on the menu. We love everything about Russo's - the food, the staff, the atmosphere, and, oh, did I mention the food! We love Russo's.

As always when we decide to go for Italian we take a trip to Russo's in Banning. Their large menu has everything you could pick from for your dinner. The food is always great & it doesn't matter which item you choose. The food is served quickly & hot & we love the garlic toast roll.

Good food at a fair price. Great sized portions. Good service. Has a separate area that is great for large parties or special events.

We have been going here for 7 years now. Most of the food is very good. Their wine (Burgandy) is the best I have ever had. The only fault I have found was their garlic bread was not very good.

We went in on a Tuesday night for a family dinner thinking it wouldn't be to crowded. We waited at the front door and no one said anything to us. We were walked by Atleast 10 times before someone came over to sit us. We were sat and it took another 10 minutes to get our drinks. Then we ordered... More

When we relocated to the inlsand empire from Denver we were concerned about finding an italian restaurant to come close to our Denver favorites. We tried many and then found Johnny Russo's. What a total daylight- it surpassed all of our best wishes and hoped for expectations.Food and service are "over the top." In addition, John Russo is an unmatched... More

All of the food selections are delicious. We have tried many dinner selections over the years that we have continued to come to Russo's from where we live in Yucaipa. It's well worth the drive for anyone who wants great Italian food. Many, many selections to choose from for your meal. Quick & friendly service too.

Back again in January! The best Italian cucina in the area. Never not satisfied with the food or service. The Calzone is to die for! Ginormous and flavorful! You've got to experience Russo's for yourself!
