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.

We ordered bread knots for our appetizer and pepperoni pizza. The atmosphere and food is awesome. Outside and inside seating.

My family decided we wanted something simple after a day on the beach so we decided on pizza. We could have gone the cheap route but wanted something more authentic so chose Russo's! We were amazed with the pizza!!! Outstanding!! My boys got a giant "pizza by the slice" and filled them up...I ordered just a simple pepperoni. Definitely would... More

We were in the mood for some good Pizza and we found it here. My friends had the lasagna and cheese garlic bread and they also liked it. It did not stop them from eating some of my pepperoni pizza! I am glad I got a large so I could share it with them. Anytime I am in Galveston, Russo's... More

This is an overpriced pizza place. The Caesar Salad was terrible and the pizza average at best. I would have enjoyed Dominos Pizza more than this pizza.

I love this place, my husband isn't as sold though. I get a slice of chicken alfredo with pineapple and pepperoni. GOOD STUFF!

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.
