I had the best pizza I think I've ever tasted yesterday during my lunch at Russo's. The service was attentive and quick and we had unlimited drink refills. We sat outside where we could smell the ocean and enjoy the nice weather and we raised the pretty red canopy over our table to avoid getting too much sun.
We chose our own toppings and got the Thursday special of $10 for a medium pizza.
Most delicious and relaxing lunch I've had in a long time. Thank you, Russo's!

The Atmosphere is clean and cozy. Customer service was not the greatest. You stand in line to order your food, take a number and they deliver your pizza to your table. The older lady who brought our pizza to the table did not speak or understand English, we asked for something and she just looked at us, shook her head and walked away. The man taking the orders, was not that friendly when taking our order. But hey, the food was good. We had a cheese and their margarita pizza. They were both very good but being from the East Coast, they are not anywhere near the flavor or texture of a good ole New York Pizza!!!!!!

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.
