We ordered pizza to go from Russo's.It was a large meat lover's,but it fell especially short on toppings.Go to Authentic New York Pizza if you want about five times the food for your money.They are down the street on Staples Street too.

The food is pretty standard but it is nice to have a pizza/pasta place that isn't so large and so crowded. A nice change from Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill

Very good service, nice atmosphere, Pizza is delicious. There is a number of great dishes, but my favorite is the pizza/calzone. I love to go for a simple date night with my husband, relax, have a pizza and a beer and is all relatively inexpensive.

The centerpiece of any Russo's restaurant is the 7,000lb coal fired oven. Only a toll like this can infuse pizza so completely and deliciously with the unique flavors of the pizzas toppings, and even the oven itself. Here at Russo's, we specialize in New York Style thin crust pizza. Everything in store is made fresh to order, and we source only the best ingredients to bring you the best flavors. In the words of founder Anthony Russo's father, we operate under the principle of "If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it!". It was this commitment to quality supplemented by a desire to share that led Russo's to conquer New York, and then other lands all over the nation. Russo's features a wide variety on the menu, from traditional favorite like our pizza, to various seafood dishes, sandwiches, pastas, cheesecakes and the like
