“Just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

There were 4 of us in our party and only two other tables occupied with one person each at them, but it still took almost an hour to get the one large pizza we ordered. The pizza itself was just an average pizza, crust was nice and crispy, but definitely not worth waiting so long for.

“Pizza is so subjective”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Since there is a different way to make pizza for every small region of the country (people would be surprised at the pizza in Italy) I try to rate pizza by its quality and not the style in which it is made. The Pizza here was of very good quality but not NY (Brooklyn specifically) style. Service was good and the price is right.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We are in love with this place after one visit! The pizzas are HUGE and the taste is INCREDIBLE! This place will be our first stop every time we come to Galveston now! The price is very reasonable and the ambiance is great as a cozy little pizza place with pictures you'll enjoy. Lots of selections and quick, friendly service.

“Pizza in Texas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Coming from NJ we are spoiled when it comes to Italian food. It is not easy to find a place that come close. russo's is decent. Their sauce is too sweet for me but not bad. They have a good selection of Italian food, outdoor seating and quick service. They also deliver to the Palisade Palms where we have our beach condo. That is a major plus when we have company and do not feel like cooking. Especially if they show up last minute.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Coming from New England, I found this Pizzeria to be a taste of home. The food was plentiful and the lasagna was delicious. For me the employees made that place great. They were helpful and courteous to a fault. They gave great advice on course selections and were very patient with younger customers. I would come again.
