Russell's is a fantastic restaurant that holds up to the best anywhere! Great service, fantastic food and the best spot to dine in Scranton! You can tell this place has passion. It is evident when Russell Preno proprietor leaves the busy kitchen to touch tables and shown gratitude to his patrons! The personal touch from the servers, bartenders, and owners... More

Russell's has good food, not easy to find if not from area. Atmosphere only ok, its not very upscale. Adequate parking and staff friendly. Its an "in" place for Scranton area people.

We arrived early without reservations, were seated promptly, and pleasantly with very a very nice table. Dinner was excellent, Prime Rib was the special but pricey for the area, shrimp scampi was delicious, and Seafood was also excellent although very rich for me. Antipasto was so so, clams casino okay. The service seemed to need more training, it seemed all... More

This was the second time we ate at Russells. The first was a pleasant experience. But the night before my nephew's graduation was terrible. We had a 6:30 reservation for which we were seated promptly. However, it took almost 20 minutes before anyone came near us and that was after my nephew went to find someone. It was 7:39 and... More

We went there with the family for Mother's Day. The food was very good and we had excellent service which we were pleasantly surprised considering it was a holiday. The place is a little outdated inside but nothing too bad. I loved that the owner came to the table to ask how everything was. We will definitely go back.

I ordered dinner for my family to go. It was prepared quickly (only 15-20min wait) and the food was delicious. They include little extras like grated cheese, lots of bread and butter, etc. Never have been disappointed.

To be honest, my wife & I were very disappointed in the food this time around. We dined here at least six times before, but this time we did not enjoy our Italian food at all. It almost seemed like the tomato sauce was poured right out of the can. It had no flavor what so ever. Maybe they have... More

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant and found the service to be slow. The food tasted good however we found it to settle heavy in our stomachs. The atmosphere was nice however we probably wouldn't go back.

The food is well above average for anywhere. This is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. The service is great along with the atmosphere and employees. There are not many restaurants like this in the area.
