January on the island is fabulous! My family decided to play tourist and walk the empty beach on the east end. On our way out we stopped at Russo's for a slice of pizza. At first glance I thought the place a little pricey-$6.50 for a slice? I opted for the Manhattan slice after reading all the specialties. The slice... More

My wife and I do a lot of vacations in Galveston every year and eat at a lot of places but this place rates at 100% for having the worst pizza we ever had. And this is coming from a 100% Sicilian the knows pizza. We had the Calebrese Napoletana pizza. It was to thin, well done on the bottom,... More

We arrived at our hotel later in the day and hadn't eaten since the morning. I was so excited to order pizza from a local place and not a big chain (one that we can get at home). I paid $36 plus tip for a small pizza and cheese sticks. The pizza was very bland and so thin that it... More

Of course we mainly hit seafood spots when we're in Galveston but we have to take a break and eat something different and this is our spot. Flavorful pizza that may take just a little while to come out due to their high volume of take-out orders. The wait's not too bad and it's worth it.

Very good pizza, and SUPER nice staff. And two Galveston PD officers came in while we were there....I paid for their meal. (It was the morning of the Baton Rouge murders) And you know what the officers told me? "We spend all day every day with people hating us. Thank you." That kind of interaction with The Blue--and a GREAT... More

A Pizza and a glass of wine is all I need. Old World Pizza that taste better than it looks but it looks better than many you will find. A really nice place.
