I have had Yarusso Brothers cater several events ranging from 75 people to 150+ most recently last week. Every single time I have called, the Team at Yarussos has delivered. The party at work last week was a big hit - the food was fresh, the pasta was perfectly done, fresh bread, butter, tiramisu - it was perfect. Keep up... More

i've been eating here for over 45 years and have never been disappointed ! friendly helpful staff and a varied menu representing numerous regional italian cuisines ! the photos of the many italian families who once populated the neighborhood add a great atmosphere- i personally enjoy their affordable lunch buffet- i love their family recipe red sauce

I've been coming here for years. I like that I know exactly what I'm getting when I order. No surprises. I love their Rigatoni and meatballs. I like that I don't have to feel like I have to get dressed up to go have a plate of good Rigatoni. When I was there I got waited on quickly even though... More

The restaurant was about half full when we arrive. We were told to sit anywhere we wished. Bread arrived and our order was taken. About 25 minutes later, we still didn't have our salads. The server we spoke to said our server was overwhelmed and please be patient. We finally got salads. Those who arrived after us were served and... More

Other than developing a Bocce Ball Court on the side of the building, the inside of this place needs a MAJOR overhaul. Average at best. Prices are rather high too.

The lunch buffet doesn't have many items, but everything tastes great. The pizza is awesome. So are the meatballs. They had 2 types of pasta which were ok ( which is saying something coming from an Italian) There was also vegetables, salad fixings, pasta salad and the best bread. I'll be back.

Stopped in for the lunch buffet with a group from work. Fast service, great food, and low price. The meatballs are great, and loved the alfredo with pasta. We'll keep coming here.

Yarusso Brothers is an old style Italian family restaurant. If you want a nice serving of pasta and meatballs with a side of salad. This is your place. Order the Chianti. You will have plenty of good food.
