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

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... read more

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

Good service, good food, excellent pizzas. It is a franchise restaurant, and I have eaten at a few. Always good, but do not have to high expectations and you will not be disappointed.

There were 7 of us trying the place out for the first time. We were very surprised that everything was ala carte even though the prices were not cheap. We are used to meals coming with either a salad or a vegetable but it was only different kinds of pasta. The pasta was so so and everyone in our party... More

We went to Russo's on a weekday night, and had really terrific service. The waiter offered several suggestions. The wine we ordered was not available, so he substituted a nicer bottle at the same price. The pizza was thin, crisp and really really good. We enjoyed our dinner very much although it was a bit pricey.

My husband and I can never agree on the toppings, so the waitress, Courtney, explained that we could get one pixxa and each could have what we wanted on half of the pizza. I got mine and mmy husband got his. We were both very happy. Loved the free garlic pizza bread appetizers.

A year ago I barely got seated and had drinks on the table when I left money on the table to cover the drinks and walked out. The place was a mess, more than half the tables needed to be bussed, there was trash and food on the floor and there was a general dirty feel to the place. I... More
