I have eaten here many times since it opened. The service here is hit or miss. Sometimes the service is great, sometimes it's terrible. Food is generally consistent depending on how busy they are. They also have a nice patio. We go here seldom now because of the service. If you have a good waiter or waitress, this is a... More

Kids and adults loved the pizza. We could taste the freshness of the ingredients. Veggie pizza with Feta cheese was awesome. Our waitress, Terese, was amazing. Great service, friendly demeanor. She was pleasant even though we were the last customers of Sunday night as we walked in 10 minutes before closing. This was our first visit, but definitely will return... More

Just had the most disappointing experience at Russo's. Walked in at 11:33. Seated and given breakfast menus. Breakfast menu says breakfast ends at 11:30. I ask for a lunch menu. Hostess brings it back and tells me they don't serve lunch until 12:15 but we can get a pizza or calzone if we want it. Seriously? On our way to... More

Terrific menu, awesome portions and delicous mimosas! Recomend the French toast selections, NY Benediction Bagle and Spanish Harlem Breakfast Burrito. All were delicous, ample and creative.

We ate dinner here on Saturday night and had a five star experience. The service was great and the food was outstanding. It was such a good experience that we were eager to return for brunch this morning. Oh how we wish we hadn't. The brunch food was worse than frozen food or something served at a budget hotel -...

I eat lunch after church regularly at Russo's. I haven't found anything that wasn't delicious. The salads are fresh; the sauce [gravy] delicious; the slices generous and delicious; the service- excellent.

We have eaten here on several occasions and always enjoyed the food and experience. This time was a bit disappointing. My wife ordered her favorite, a gluten free pizza. It came with the crust severely burnt. I ordered the spaghetti with meat sauce, which had very little meat. My son had the calzone, which he loved. Rarely order dessert, but... More

Lunch mid-week with husband. Parmesan bread is a nice touch.....would be better if it were crispy instead of doughy. Husband had a spicy alfredo pasta that was very good. My spaghetti and meat sauce hardly had any meat in it at all. Salad was room temperature. With just a few tweaks this could have been a very good meal.

This is the second time I go to this place for lunch with co-workers. It is easy to accommodate larger groups as it is not busy. Service was attentive, but not particularly quick. The waitress got one of the orders wrong, and had to prepare the order for one person, which always delays the departure of everybody at the end.... More

We love the owner, manager and staff, here. They recognize us, greet us and remember our preferences. The food is delicious, and when they say "giant slice of pizza," they MEAN it!
