The centerpiece of any Russo's restaurant is the 7,000lb coal fired oven. Only a toll like this can infuse pizza so completely and deliciously with the unique flavors of the pizzas toppings, and even the oven itself. Here at Russo's, we specialize in New York Style thin crust pizza. Everything in store is made fresh to order, and we source only the best ingredients to bring you the best flavors. In the words of founder Anthony Russo's father, we operate under the principle of "If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it!". It was this commitment to quality supplemented by a desire to share that led Russo's to conquer New York, and then other lands all over the nation. Russo's features a wide variety on the menu, from traditional favorite like our pizza, to various seafood dishes, sandwiches, pastas, cheesecakes and the like

Had the Veggie Pizza slice, was big, but not my favorite pizza.

The Veggie Pizza was a big slice, and I was served complimentary bread with sauce. The atmosphere was nice, I enjoyed the music. I wasn't crazy about the pizza though. Not bad, but not great. My concern was the employee was throwing a fake pizza dough up in the air, dropping it on the floor... read more

Very good service, nice atmosphere, Pizza is delicious. There is a number of great dishes, but my favorite is the pizza/calzone. I love to go for a simple date night with my husband, relax, have a pizza and a beer and is all relatively inexpensive.

In town for only a few days and wanting to find a tasty gem, this is your spot! Delicious food. Appetizer garlic knots and spinach artichoke dip is out of this world! Wait staff/cook was perfect!

Ate here recently and had the spaghetti and meatballs. The marinara sauce is very good but the entree portion is kinda small since a salad doesn't come w/it. they expect you will fill yourself up before your dinner arrives w/cut up breadsticks and marinara sauce. They are very good. the meatballs had a bit of a pasty texture likely caused... More

Tim the waiter was primo on our first visit. He explained everything on the menu and all options. The manager even came over to check on us and we talked for a while about our local micro beers in Corpus Christi. I had the a beer for the Lazy Beer Brewer. It was good. Here are some big suggestions: 1.... More
