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.

I reviewed this place once before but I just realized after reading the help section that you cannot edit reviews so I'll place another one. My first experience was so-so and my 2nd experience was only so-so. I'll probably not be back. I went by myself as a treat to a nice dinner with a glass of wine. I asked... More

My husband and I recently ate here for the first time with our 2 year old daugter. Walking in I could tell the atmosphere seemed pretty pleasant and relaxing. We got seated and our server I don't remember his name but from first impressions he seemed kind of annoyed and unhappy working there. We had heard from friends who had... More

There was some good and some bad so I'm going to go with an in the middle review. I'll give them another shot and edit my review accordingly afterward. I've received numerous coupons from the back of my HEB receipt so I'd been wanting to give this place a shot. Last Saturday, 2/13, I decided to give it a try... More

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

The Veggie Pizza was a big slice, and I was served complimentary bread with sauce. The atmosphere was nice, I enjoyed the music. I wasn't crazy about the pizza though. Not bad, but not great. My concern was the employee was throwing a fake pizza dough up in the air, dropping it on the floor, picking it back up and... More

I have eaten at russos many times back at the McAllen tx location. I assumed it was going to be as good here in corpus as it Was in McAllen....I was wrong, the cheese bread was cold as was the slice of pizza. The only thing warm was the calzone, which was wrong, and at that I was 5 mins... More

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.

In town for only a few days and wanting to find a tasty gem, this is your spot! Delicious food. Appetizer garlic knots and spinach artichoke dip is out of this world! Wait staff/cook was perfect!

Description
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
