We have had a problem finding pizza restaurants in our area that have anchovies as a topping. Russo's to the rescue. It's more casual than I like at this price level. You order at the counter and get your own drinks. They bring your food. The pizza by the slice is not nearly as good as the individual pizza. All are thin crust.

“Excellent Pizza”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Love the place. The specialty pizzas are very good. The Paizano is our favorite. Also like the large single slices for the kids. Use it frequently for take out, but it is a good family restaurant.

“Thursday night special”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

On Thursday nights a big glass of wine for $1.99 and large glass of draft beer for .99 cents. Also has special on food this night. Great value and always great staff working there. Gotten to be a little crowed on this night of the week, they really need to look at several nights a week doing this?

“A little taste of NY, right here in Texas!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Had the rigatoni with meat sauce along with a large NY style pizza. The rigatoni was a very large portion and had tremendous flavor. The pizza had just about everything on it and had a crispy crust and fresh ingredients. We watched the chef prepare the dough, throw it in the air many times, load it up and slide it into the oven.....no frozen dough here! It was definitely hand tossed! There are 8 slices on a large pizza and believe me, unless you are super hungry, you will be taking some of it home for later! The slices are humongous! Plenty of beer and other adult beverages and lots of homegrown desserts, like pistachio cheesecake (which by the way was excellent), cupcakes, cookies, red velvet and carrot cake, along with many other desserts. I saw a guy eating spaghetti and meatsauce.....it looked and smelled terrific. You can order pizza by the slice as well........one slice will probably fill up the hungriest customer. I will be back!

“One of the largest Pizzas you will find in our area”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

If you are having a group of teen age boys and you don't know what to feed them this is a great place to come. Even the biggest appetite will find their giant pizza a lot to eat. They have other great things on the menu and some great cakes too. You can call in your order or eat there. Just be prepared to be handed a menu when you walk in and told to come back when you are ready to order.
