It is the best!

Banning doesn`t have too much to offer. The restaurants are only fast food and I don1t like. Russos is the best : good food, good people...Sometimes, my husband and me go there twice, I like the pastas, the sauces.... Much better than any restaurants in Palm Springs or around.

Even if you are coming in late the dinner will be delicious and made fresh. The Wedding soup is fantastic with the roll and garlic butter.

The atmosphere feels welcoming! Great service! The eggplant parmesan is DELISH! Go find out for yourself. Oh, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of foods.

We went with high hopes, but the meal was not satisfactory. My steak was med. well, but it was ordered rare. When I had it redone, it was warm, not hot. One family member ordered artichoke and spinach pasta. Too bad for her, there were no artichokes in the dish. The men called their meal "o.k." It was early, so... More

Just off the I-10 freeway in Banning, the local eatery has delicious food, great service and a local warm feel. Our large group of 7 was taken care of quickly and with just enough attention. We ordered a variety of dishes including a couple of chicken, the house special lasagna and spaghetti. All were fantastic, however, the large portions required... More

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
