Dining options: Dinner
Description: The centerpiece of any Russo's restaurant is the 7,000lb coal fired oven. Only a toll like this can infuse pizza so completely and deliciously with the unique flavors of the pizzas toppings, and even the oven itself. Here at Russo's, we specialize in New York Style thin crust pizza. Everything in store is made fresh to order, and we source only the best ingredients to bring you the best flavors. In the words of founder Anthony Russo's father, we operate under the principle of "If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it!". It was this commitment to quality supplemented by a desire to share that led Russo's to conquer New York, and then other lands all over the nation. Russo's features a wide variety on the menu, from traditional favorite like our pizza, to various seafood dishes, sandwiches, pastas, cheesecakes and the like.

Russo's offer's some down right tasty Italian Choices. Their prices are in line with other mid end Italian choices, but if you hit their specials, or have their coupons, you can save some serious funds.

All of the food my family, friends, and children have had here has been good. For those with Gluten Allergies, you will find that they have both pizza, and pasta offered in gluten free options.

Fresh thin crust pizza bread is offered while waiting, and you could simply fill up on this alone. Oil, vinegar, parmesean, hot pepper, and oregano are in ample supply for condiments.

Service can be a bit slow at times, but is worth the wait.

“Loved the food and enjoyed the service!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Excellent pizza ~ I definitely prefer the light thin crust and the bread /oil before was superb. The Monday special made my dinner very inexpensive. I will definitely be back.

“Nice and open on labor day.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Not easy to find a place open on labor day but this place, just over from the Hyatt was the ticket. Just over the road from the Hyatt, service as swift and attentive without being over bearing (as many Europeans find service in the US). Pizzas were great. The medium was certainly big enough. The large at 16" is either for a big appetite or likely to need a doggy bag. The appetiser, a type of cheese fondue with spinach and artichoke with garlic bread was really good and a recommendation of our server.

“Maybe not for lunch but...”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

...great for date night or dinner with a small group.

I have eaten here many times (5+), but never for lunch, and I am really surprised by the other tripadvisor comments as they pertain to the meal. Say what you want about the waitstaff, who tend to be rushed and are generally less than polished, but the food is great with fresh ingredients and good flavor. Portion sizes are large, making it easy to split and share, and that makes the pricing more acceptable. The selection is broad and I always have a hard time choosing. Decent wine list and beer choices, and the dessert (slices big enough for three) is a must...if you saved room.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

I go here about once every 2 weeks and am always happy to find a table with no wait. The pizza is really good, I think as good as Grimaldi's and better than Urban Crust. Service is always great and very friendly. Great selection of wines. They will give you dough when you leave and you can cook your own pizza at home. My favorite pizza place for sure.
