“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Great wood fired pizza and the veal/meat tortelini were excellent. The service was over the top. The bread for the olive oil dipping sauce was awesome.

“great pizza - huge portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you have lunch here, you will have leftovers for dinner or next day's lunch. I had a slice of Chicken Pesto Pizza for $6.50. The pizza was great and so was the bread (starter). It was a huge slice. My friends ordered the lunch combos and all had to take to-go bags.
The food is great and worth coming back to try some of the other items

“Great Food - Awesome Specials”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Russo's offer's some down right tasty Italian Choices. Their prices are in line with other mid end Italian choices, but if you hit their specials, or have their coupons, you can save some serious funds.

All of the food my family, friends, and children have had here has been good. For those with Gluten Allergies, you will find that they have both pizza, and pasta offered in gluten free options.

Fresh thin crust pizza bread is offered while waiting, and you could simply fill up on this alone. Oil, vinegar, parmesean, hot pepper, and oregano are in ample supply for condiments.

Service can be a bit slow at times, but is worth the wait.

“Loved the food and enjoyed the service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Excellent pizza ~ I definitely prefer the light thin crust and the bread /oil before was superb. The Monday special made my dinner very inexpensive. I will definitely be back.

“Nice and open on labor day.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Not easy to find a place open on labor day but this place, just over from the Hyatt was the ticket. Just over the road from the Hyatt, service as swift and attentive without being over bearing (as many Europeans find service in the US). Pizzas were great. The medium was certainly big enough. The large at 16" is either for a big appetite or likely to need a doggy bag. The appetiser, a type of cheese fondue with spinach and artichoke with garlic bread was really good and a recommendation of our server.
