First time visit ( 2 people). One of the few places open in the city on a Sunday evening. Setting very old school(dated), dark and heavy with little dining alcoves. Menu very traditional Southern Country Italian. Beer list limited. Lots of red wines on the list, but also out of a lot of names. White wines really limited. One meal... More

Great dinner. Not 5 stars...unfortunately....but very good. My meal was not hot so needed to have it warmed up...and my husbands seafood cannelloni special was just not what he expected, but good. They might be getting too big, not sure. Miss the more personal experience from years gone by.

Rich and Terry are wonderful hosts - always gracious, warm and friendly. The service is outstanding, never intrusive. But we always come back for the food - everything is simply excellent. We...

I was in town visiting family and we were looking for a night out with great food and nice atmosphere. LoRusso's was an excellent recommendation by a friend. The salads were delicious, the best caesar I have had in a long time. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and we will come back!
