We stopped for dinner after a long and busy day. The tried something new that was called Chicken Giovanni, I had my usual of meatballs with garlic, cheese and meat sauce. The Wedding soup is always fantastic, be sure to get the dinner roll with garlic butter. The roll dipped in the Wedding Soup is wonderful. The service staff is... More

My wife and I started at the Beaumont store and since it is closed we travel from Yucaipa to Banning just to get a great meal at Johnny Russo's Italian Kitchen. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service. The waitresses are great and always very helpful. I love the Meat Ravioli and my wife loves the... More

We are fortunate enough to live nearby so we can frequent Russo's whenever we are hungry for Italian food. I always get the lasagna. My husband loves the wedding soup. We had the special lamb chops on an irregular celebration night and wish they were a regular menu item. For a quick lunch the meatball grinder is delicious. I encourage... More

Russo's is a real "institution" in Banning. The family that owns the place are very active in community service in Banning and Beaumont. The food is VERY tasty, freshly prepared to order and moderately priced.

We visited Russo's again for dinner - birthday celebration for my husband and me. My sister & brother-in-law came in for a surprise visit and wanted to treat us to dinner - and Russo's was their choice. They visited a year ago and we took them to Russo's and they, too, are hooked!

The Hostess was great and the server did her best. Some of the food was a big disappointment. The house salad was good especially the cheese. The dinner rolls are to die for. But the Lasagna was a disaster. The noodles were tough and gritty, the overall entree was only warm and the taste was bland. Frankly, the Lasagna in... More

Had not been here for some time and we ate off the small size lunch menu. Main course came with a great salad & garlic bread. Seemed to be large takeout. Service was good and server was attentive to our needs. Food was served hot and tasted good. Would come back again

We're traveling across country so we're trying to avoid fast food as much as possible. Everyone at Russos was welcoming and friendly. The food was absolutely incredible. If you love creamy sauces, get the Chicken Bella! The spinach stuffed chicken is incredible and the Bella sauce might be my new favorite! I also ordered a half carafe of house wine... More
