Really enjoyed our Greek pizza. Fresh . Enjoyed the pasta too and garlic bread. We 've been back a few times and always enjoyed the food.

We have eaten at the Russo's location in League City so this was so disappointing. Pizza was overlooked and bland with virtually no sauce. The restaurant was dirty and the fountain drinks tasted strange. The unsweetened tea was actually peach tea and my husband tasted the sweet tea that was actually lemon tea. He said the soda tasted weird so he wouldn't drink it. We really love the location in League City but we won't retrun to the island location. Oh, I literally stood for five minutes before our order was taken and no one came to our table like they do at the other location.

Location is perfect, across from Stewart Beach but set back enough from Seawall Blvd. to find easy parking and escape the crowd. We got two large pizzas and took half home. The margherita pizza was delicious; fresh tomato slices, great cheese. The double pepperoni was a little salty to me, but very good. I like Russo's in Houston and it was great to find it in Galveston. We will be back to try some of the other Italian dishes.

The pizza is top-notch, really great. Lots of other italian dishes eg calzones, and dessert (cake, etc) that the family really enjoyed. We went twice and will go back.
The staff and manager were friendly, nice, and very compitent.
He kept the place open an extra hour on a Wed becaue our family and one other came in right at closing time--offered to give tastes of wine/dessert, and even gave kids a free sampler of his favorite dessert. Some other reviews were wrong--he is not rude--he is competitent, manages the place well and knows how to make pizza. Next time in Galveston, we will be back.

We wanted a quick & easy place for dinner and chose this based on other reviews. We (2 adults, one picky 3 yr old) split a large NY-style pizza which was big enough to satisfy our very hungry appetites after a long day at Moody Gardens. It was delicious and the crust was light and crisp. My hubby who never eats the crust didn't leave a crumb on his plate!
Sadly for our waistlines but fortunately for our taste buds, the desserts were on display and looked too good to pass up. It's vacation, right?! The NY-style cheesecake was great, but the Italian Cream Cake was AWESOME! Really, just have some.
Would definitely go back.
