“They never claimed it's Italian!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoy this place. We have never had a bad meal or a bad experience and the owner is always present and accommodating.
We love the Texytender beef tenderloin and the Pollo Picante.
You might think its Italian but it all has a Texas twist.

“There is better Italian”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

If all that mattered was a nice building this would be a 3 to 4 stars as the building is really nice. Unfortunately on our visit on a Sunday evening in February 2014 that was where nice ended.

I had the sampler plate, my wife had lasagna, our guest had a salad and shared the sampler.

Service was real slow, we even had to find our waiter to get refills of tea. When the food did arrive it was cool and the cheese had already started to turn hard not that soft bubbling hot cheese that you expect on Italian dishes.

Everything was just bland, nothing to say this is great or even different. In fact I have made a better sauce starting with a store bought brand and spicing it up.

Even though we live relatively close we won't go here again as there are better italian places right down the street. Yes the building isn't as big or as nice but we go out for the food not how big or nice the place is.

“Not as good as before”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Service was excellent - food was so so. Wife and friend ordered fish and chips (supposed to be cod, a very mild white fish). Several darker pieces in the and it was so fishy tasting she could not eat it. Sent it back for a steak. They cheerfully replaced her meal which we appreciated. My friend just didn't eat his. Kind of took away his appetite. Probably won't be going back here. Sara and Samantha dud a great job.

“Great food”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had a great experience. We used to live in Marble Falls, and returned after 10 years for a visit. We had eaten at Russo's a few times, and always enjoyed it. I don't agree with the bad reviews here. Our food was wonderful, as was our service. Friendly staff.
