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!

A lthough several restaurants were listed in the Banning area we feel that there are only a handful (with a couple of fingers left on one hand) that are worth eating at in this area. We willingly travel a half hour out of town in several directions for what we consider to eat "good food". Whenever we have friends or... More

My wife and I eat here regularly, even though we have to drive from San Jacinto. The drive is well worth it because we like it here so much. On our last visit, on this Sunday, I ordered the salmon dinner with the vegetables on the side and it was terrific, as usual. I had a hot dinner role which... More

Russo's is the best Italian in the Inland Empire. Italian is my favorite type of food so I've been to many Italian restaurants- nothing beats Johnny Russo's. The food is fantastic, great service and the owner is very attentive. You really do get a family feel at Johnny Russo's Italian Kitchen.

We have been there many, many times & we can always say that the food is consistently great & it doesn't matter which item entree we choose. It could be lasagna , spaghetti, pizza, antipasta, anything that we choose is great tasting.
