In true New York style, the pizza is large and foldable, the toppings are large and a slice can be a full lunch. For a dinner I would advise getting an appetizer if you plan on getting a single slice. The tomato basil soup is outstanding! I could eat multiple bowls in one sitting. It is creamy, not too thick,... More

I have eaten here 3 times. It has been good all three occasions. Dinner were pizzas due to a soccer team get together. The pizza was really good. The second time was brunch and it was fabulous. Really good food and huge portions. This last time was for lunch and I shared the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella app. It was FABULOUS!!!... More

We visited the restaurant on a Thursday evening because I had read an advertisement in a local magazine that indicated the second pizza of equal or lesser value would be free. I asked the waiter and he said it was calzone night. When I mentioned the add he went to the owner and brought back the ad and explained it... More

Love this place. Nice environment, friendly staff and the food is delish. Their pizza is what pizza should be with fresh toppings. Other dishes are very good too, I have been several times and have never had anything that wasn't good.

The tomato bisque is phenomenal. Unfortunately, that's where that adjective ends. Service is bad, at best. The pasta dishes are mediocre and the pizza is very lacking. They try to make up for it with large slices but it just doesn't work. The crust is the best part, everything else tastes cheap.

I have eaten here many times since it opened. The service here is hit or miss. Sometimes the service is great, sometimes it's terrible. Food is generally consistent depending on how busy they are. They also have a nice patio. We go here seldom now because of the service. If you have a good waiter or waitress, this is a... More

Kids and adults loved the pizza. We could taste the freshness of the ingredients. Veggie pizza with Feta cheese was awesome. Our waitress, Terese, was amazing. Great service, friendly demeanor. She was pleasant even though we were the last customers of Sunday night as we walked in 10 minutes before closing. This was our first visit, but definitely will return... More

Just had the most disappointing experience at Russo's. Walked in at 11:33. Seated and given breakfast menus. Breakfast menu says breakfast ends at 11:30. I ask for a lunch menu. Hostess brings it back and tells me they don't serve lunch until 12:15 but we can get a pizza or calzone if we want it. Seriously? On our way to... More

Terrific menu, awesome portions and delicous mimosas! Recomend the French toast selections, NY Benediction Bagle and Spanish Harlem Breakfast Burrito. All were delicous, ample and creative.
