Their salad is so good! Pizza is awesome! Kids always get cheese and we usually get some type of Mediterranean type. Very yummy. Never ordered the other items, it's a pizza place - so we order pizza!

As the title says, these guys have great pizza. Their pizza is the best I have had anywhere, but every other food which I tried there was bad. And if you go there, don't order a basic type of pizza, like pepperoni pizza. Take prosquto, or greek, or some other of their specialty pizzas.

This place was pretty good. Little bit of a wait but quality food. Won't disappoint. One of the better places in this area along the coast.

Food was tremendous. I really felt the pizza and toppings where top notched. I just think they want way too much for the food then similar places I have visited before. Still it is worth a stop. If you order a calzone share it! You can feed two with that thing!

Our motel's room keys were imprinted with , "Russo's New York Style Pizzeria" and we were handed coupons to eat there, when we checked in. We shoved them in a drawer in the room not thinking we'd ever bother.

At noon on the second day, we couldn't decide where to eat. I pulled the coupons out and thinking they'd probably be offering a buffet which would get us in and out quickly, suggested we go. Was I glad we did!!!

It was lunchtime so specials were abundant. I ordered a slice of their Italian Works Pizza, their Manhattan Pizza, and a side House Salad. Their Italian Works had large slices of pepperoni, Italian sausage, sliced tomatoes, purple onions and red sauce. The Manhattan was topped with Italian sausage, onions, pepperoni, and red sauce. BOTH were wonderful!

If you're familiar with authentic New York Style Pizza, you know their slices are huge! These fit that bill and the crust was excellent.

My wife ordered their New York Calzone with a Caesar Side Salad. She's a calzone connoisseur and still raves how this was the BEST EVER!

We both finished off lunch with our own Cannoli. The Cannolis were about a "7" on a scale of "1-10".

You order at the register when you enter, then seat yourselves. They then bring your entrees to your table. This was somewhat awkward.

If I remember correctly, after working in his father's Manhattan pizza restaurant from childhood on, Russo moved here and opened shop about 14 years ago. These are authentic New York Style Italian offerings. You won't be disappointed.

Our lunchtime tab prior to tip and after the $10 Off Coupon, with two soft drinks, came to $24.86. This may see pricey for lunch, but I ridiculously ordered TWO slices of pizza! One is plenty, believe me! We took both pizza and part of her Calzone back to the motel for a late night snack.
