YUM!

I went to Russo's because they were donating a portion of the proceeds for the night to the Germantown Animal Shelter. Definite plus already! The service was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious!

Russo's has a great menu, excellent food, and tremendous atmosphere. However, the past several times the service has been sub-par, making the overall experience just average. The restaurant has so much to offer, great patio with music on the weekends, very child and family friendly, and again - great food. I hope that service can be improved so it compliments... More

Russo's is fantastic. Every dish comes out fresh, the bread is delicious, and the service is equally good. They also do a breakfast service on weekends. I go there every weekend because that is absolutely the best breakfast I've ever had. I routinely myself disappointed when visiting out of town trying to find a comparable breakfast. My only complaint would... More

The Stromboli is awesome in taste and size. This is a good item to split. The pizza is good whether it is a regular pizza or one of the giant pizza slices. They also serve wine. It can get crowded and noisy.

The rest is unimpressive. Place is loud. Pizza crust is a bit greasy and limp, not crispy at all. Pasta is so-so.

The food is consistently excellent...brunch, lunch or dinner. The manager, Jonathon, always remembers us and makes a point to greet us. You can even purchase their dough to make your own pizza at home.

I have used tripadvisor for years, but have never had a travel or dining experience so good or so bad that I felt compelled to register and write a review - until now.

This restaurant is a slice of NY transported to Memphis, TN! While dining, the owner introduced himself to us and not only did his accent give him away, but the food was right out of NY (I grew up there). Pizza is superb and the lunch special consists of a huge slice. The pastas are outstanding - Pasta Flava will... More
