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 Coal Fired Italian Kitchen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have eaten at Russo's several times in my travel to Richardson TX. I usually have the Chicken Parmesan. But this week was different.

This family restaurant has big portions so bring your appetite. I can make a meal out of their bowl of Minestrone soup. This time I did a cup of the soup. Remember I said the portions are big ... it comes in what they call a small bowl and is packed with vegetables with some pasta $2.95

I had the Stromboli a type of Calzone as my main course. It’s a 12 inch pizza hold the sauce that is folded over with sauce on the side. Mine had Pepperoni, Italian sausage, fresh mushrooms, black olives, green bell peppers, and mozzarella cheese $10.95 and ice tea bottomless $2.25
The pizza sauce at Russo's is old style Italian tomato sauce.

I have never had a desert at Russo's just too much before I get that far.

“Great Food”

Great wood fired pizza and the veal/meat tortelini were excellent. The service was over the top. The bread for the olive oil dipping sauce was awesome.

“great pizza - huge portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you have lunch here, you will have leftovers for dinner or next day's lunch. I had a slice of Chicken Pesto Pizza for $6.50. The pizza was great and so was the bread (starter). It was a huge slice. My friends ordered the lunch combos and all had to take to-go bags.
The food is great and worth coming back to try some of the other items

“Great Food - Awesome Specials”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

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.
