The services was the worsted. Everyone kept bumping into me. Very dirty place. It took forever to get the food. The food wasn't worth me taking it home. It wasn't worth the money I spend

This is an Italian restaurant mainly known for its pizza having the sauce on top of the cheese or other add ons. Pizza and sandwiches are always consistent great crust. Nice and cozy atmosphere for family outings. We like pitchers of beer with our pizza and we discovered they are the highest in Fulton & Montgomery County food is reasonable... More

Third or fourth generation neighborhood italian restaurant/ bar. Great homemade sauce, bread & pizza dough. Sandwiches on thick but light in house bread. Pizza is unique in that sauce is on top of other toppings before baking..delicous! Plenty of pasta choices You'll find customers, like myself, who've returned for decades.

Russo's is your quintessential neighborhood Italian eatery. One enters via a side door off the parking lot. A bar, frequented by regulars is to the left in front of the establishment and the eating area--two dozen tables and booths--is to the right. The food is absolutely wonderful characterized by huge portions at extremely low prices. Large baskets of delicious freshly... More

The pizza is always great, hot sandwiches have always been good, pasta is good, BUT the eggplant I got the other day was burnt tasting and too much breading. Have been there a few times now where my order goes in and the food does not come out. The waitress keeps saying it is coming and it takes a long... More

It has been awhile since we have been to Russo's of Amsterdam - it is because of this one waitress who is the worst - she loves to ignore you and make you wait - this time was no different - we sat there for 15 mins she never came over to get our order - no matter how long... More

My wife and I shared an antipast salad with my "fish" on the side. We each ordered a cold sandwich; mine roast beef, her's turkey. The bread served with the salad and sandwiches is to die for.
