Consistant nice food.

The prices are all very reasonable. The food hot. Wine by the glass above average for the price so just go ahead and order more to start with. Trust Lasagna if not sure.

My wife, son and I have eaten here many times for dinner and have never been disappointed. We ate here again a couple of days ago and enjoyed it very much. My wife and I both had their Italian Caesar salad which was very good. Our son had their grilled salmon entree which he liked. We also like the rolls... More

It was nice to have the option of smaller portions. Ice cream was good, but a little soft. Salad & pasta were very good.

We drive 30 miles once a month to enjoy the delicious food Russo's always cooks up! Being Italian we have tried numerous items on the menu and have not been disappointed in any of them! The Calzone has become one of our favorites along with a dinner salad and the garlic toast! No matter how hungry you are, you will... More

I have to drive down 26 miles of mountain road to get to Russo's. It's well worth it because of the great food, service, and reasonable prices.

We drive to Russo's at least once a month to enjoy their wonderfully delicious Italian food. It's always so yummie & it doesn't matter what we order, pizza, lasagna , spaghetti. Also their salads are delicious with their dressing, also the soup is great too. They have quite a large menu to decide from too. It's all GREAT....

My favorite is the lasagna, and I take home half of it for another meal. The rolls are large and yeasty and come with special butter. I also like the sausage and peppers. My daughter took me here for Mother's Day. They have an extra room in the back for large groups.

We have eaten at Russo's many times, usually once a week and it's a well worth drive from San Jacinto. I ate here again this past Saturday with my wife and adult son and we all enjoyed it very much. Our server did an excellent job and was very nice. I had the grilled salmon dinner and I chose the... More

My son and I work in Cabazon once a month and always stop at Russo's for lunch. Love the lasagna and chicken parm. I was raised on Italian food because my dad is Sicilian. Russo' s is not quite as good as nonna's but it's a close second.

This is a family restaurant and has great food. If you are looking for a lot of ambiance, it is not your place. It is a grew local establishment with great food and reasonable prices...also a rewards program.
