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

As locals we dine here regularly and have always had a great dining experience. The portions are generous, the wait staff is really nice and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Wine is available as is a large meeting/ party room in the back. There is a large parking lot.

Once again we had visitors from out of state and THEY requested we go to Russo's since they had heard so much about our go-to restaurant and wanted to be included! Eggplant parmesan and Chicken Primavera were ordered by our guests - mwaaah - both said their dishes were perfection! Our own dinners, of course, were the best - so... More

A good Italian restaurant with portions to satisfy. We always have some to take home. I don't know how they would sell a dessert. Prices are right. Friendly staff. Passing through? Stop here.

When I eat the tomato sauce just one scoop, I can imagine how delicious they are. Great cheese and tomato sauce make me happy. Galic and cheese toasts are also wonderful. And my lasagna was great! "He who eat well, lives well"

We have been eating at Russo's for many years. We drive over 15 miles to get there & it's worth it. It doesn't matter what menu item we order, it's always delicious, pizza, lasagna, spaghetti, anti-pasta salad. Everything is YUM !!!

My wife and I have been eating here regularly over the last couple of years and have never been disappointed. We all enjoyed the food. My wife and I split a cheese/vegetarian pizza which was excellent. Our son enjoyed his salmon dinner. Our waitress, Lucinda, did an excellent job and was very nice. The atmosphere is not fancy but always... More
