Great pizza, a little pricey

It's one of the best pizza places on the island but compared to what you get, it's a little pricey. The food is great but I ordered a medium Hawaiian pizza with onions and it ended up costing nearly $20. The atmosphere is nice and I will definitely come back to try some of their pasta dishes.

Excellent gluten free pizza. My girlfriend had not had a pizza in two years because of her allergy to gluten products. The staff was friendly and helpful and the pizza was great. We also had wine and beer very nice choices also. Thanks again for your gluten free items on the the menu.

I was pleasantly surprised at quality of food at Russo's. I was expecting a chain-style menu and food quality, but the food was fresh and very, very tasty. We loved the spinach artichoke pizza with roasted garlic on thin crust. that garlic is insane! It was even good cold...straight out of the fridge. Great place. Give them a try

Odd location in strip mall, but Great New York Pizza. Nice staff with a large beer & wine selection. Looks like a family owned business and it appears they have a big deliver service.

Stopped in for a spur of the moment dinner. The wait staff were very friendly and the service was attentive. The atmosphere is pretty casual but showed to hold class. I would highly recommend the marguerite pizza. It is delicious.

We stopped for lunch and was surprised that there weren't more people there. Very clean and nicely decorated, this restaurant is located in the Emerald by the Sea complex at the east end of the Seawall. It can be easily overlooked but you shouldn't let this one go by. We ordered a medium Mulberry (italian sausage, canadian bacon, hamburger and... More

Twice recently the staff has made a mistake on my order at lunch. I am guessing there are new staff members, but it is not fun to have limited time and end up having to take your meal to go. The food is quite good, but not always turned out in the proper order.

Pizzas and calzones we've had here are pretty good most of the time, but prices can be a little high. But that's Galveston - it's a tourist town. They do have outdoor seating, which is a plus. They're also right across the street from Stewart Beach, which could be convenient.

Good food, friendly service and affordable prices. Salad and a piece of pizza enough for lunch and dinner.

I went into the unclean restaurant with a friend on Christmas. Not too busy when I arrived, to be greeted by an anxious cashier who seemed to be cranked up on something else. My friend ordered a slice. I ordered a gluten free pizza and a glass of chianti wine. Sat at the bar and waited 10 minutes for my... More
