We stop here most Sundays after church with a small group of friends. The dining experience and food are excellent.

We were set in the back of the restaurant. It was very noisy we could hardly converse. The menu was extensive and we all ordered something different including their sampler. We had never been there before and wanted to try different things There were 5 of us. Mediocre at best. Not our thing.

My wife, adult son and myself have eaten here many times and we are never disappointed, including when we ate here two days ago for dinner. My wife and I split a large pizza and our son had their salmon dinner. Everything was excellent! Our server, Lucinda, did a terrific job, as usual.

My husband and I used to be able to eat quite well. Now we have some medical problems and dietary restrictions. Russo's is one place where we can ask for a half order and not be questioned or be made to feel like we are asking for something too difficult to do. The food is hot and delicious. Reasonably priced.... More

Arrived at 5:30 pm on Thursday night, noise in restaurant was astronomical! Also disappointing was the greatly reduced size of dinner salads that accompany the dinner itself. Reduced ambience, reduced size of dinner salad resulted in lower rating review for this restaurant.

Always enjoy going to Johnny Russo's Italian Kitchen. Whenever we go we can expect excellent Italian food, and service. When our friends come to town we take them here. My husband and I have tried quite a few items on their menu and have never been disappointed.

When we want great Italian food we go to Russo's. Their food is always consistently delicious. We could get lasagna, spaghetti, pizza, anything, it's great all of the time. Just Yummy !

Johnny Russo's is the best Italian restaurant in Banning and is owned by the nicest man, John Russo. He has consistently produced quality food. Have also had his restaurant cater dinner parties several times. Need to add - fresh baked rolls and garlic bread to compliment delicious entrées followed by spumoni ice cream for dessert. Ciao.
