Very disappointed. Food was just ok. Calamari ok. Crostini NOT GOOD.Z. BREAD NOT TOASTED. fig jam sufficed for gigs and everything else was bad. I never got my caprese salad. Really only had bread for dinner. Great waitresses who were totally embarrassed with the food.

We came craving our favorites. We were told they were under new corporate ownership as of Monday. The former burrata app is replaced by a sad display of poorly done mozzarella. The menu is paired down to basics, mostly red sauces and chicken. The lasagna...More

Went to Russo’s for the first time for lunch today. As an individual often get stuck in a corner - not so at Russo’s. My server, Joseph, was terrific, conscientious but not hovering. The baked ziti was terrific as was the bread. Portion was way...More

Decided to go to this place because it was Italian and our family loves pasta. The atmosphere is great for families and the staff was great as well. We got the calamari to start and that was excellent. Ordered a pizza and it was great...More

The pizza has great, smoky taste from the wood fire cooking. Ingredients are fresh and overall tasty.

Went here for a late lunch. A 1930's gangster sort of ambiance. Ordered Calamari Fritti, followed by an Insalata Caprese. The best calamari I have ever had! Fresh, lightly seasoned. The Insalata Caprese was fresh, flavorful, vibrant, well plated and presented.

We ordered the Veggie pizza and it was fairly mediocre, so we don't plan to return any time soon to try the Italian Entrees. The house-made sangria was average but the focaccia and oil were delicious. Unfortunately, we ordered extra garlic on our pizza, and...More

I always thought that Italian food couldn't be messed up. I was wrong. First, we ordered calamari for an appetizer. Tasted very fishy meaning old. Rubbery as well, probably frozen. No seasoning to give any umf. Pizzas were not just oven cooked but burnt all...More

The pizza are cooked in a wood oven for that natural flavor. The pizza themselves are more Yuppie style than the traditional but the plain wings are good.

I tried this restaurant for the first time. Salad was okay, pizza was okay, everything was okay. A 1930's gangster ambiance and my booth was comfortable and quiet. Bar is small and uninviting and not necessarily a place to impress business associates. Prices were moderate,...More
