My husband had been there when he was a teenager many years ago and remembered they had amazing open faced turkey sandwiches and we just had to stop in for lunch. They had an open meatball sandwich with fries on special so I choose that, and my son got the turkey as well as my husband. The meatballs were smothered... More

Used to visit here several times a month. Driving through the area looked forward to stopping in. Food is still good. But that seems to be it. Surprised they continued to seat people on a Saturday night knowing both bathrooms were out of order.Hard to run a bar/restaurant with no bathroom. I try to support the local establishments anytime I... More

Food is good and traditional for the many years that this establishment has been in place, but prices have been jacked and charge extra for everything from lettuce, tomato and onion (yes, each one of these is an additional charge!) to gravy (which is already an extra charge, but if you order EXTRA gravy ~ yup - more money). Staff... More

Good food and bar service. Only issue I have with this place is the prices are just too high for what you get otherwise I'd recommend them more.

I grew up getting food from this restaurant. My Grandfather loved it, and I believe grew up with them, and I still love it. These are the best places to come to. They give you a feel of the hardworking families of Amsterdam. Whether you are getting the meatballs, which I suggest, or their giant roast beef sandwich on homemade... More

Found this quirky restaurant by chance on a three day trip to Amsterdam and returned twice to eat in the evening. It is down a small side alley and is not very big but is always busy , a good sign. The welcome is warm even if the waiter wanted us to buy Italian wine instead of French. Family particularly... More

A few family members went to Russo's to get a dinner and have general discussion. The table had different height chairs and was the area was dimly lit. The pizza was burnt but the eggplant was cooked well. Overall it was just an average meal.

You have to get Russo's pizza and, of course, fries with gravy. If you live here, you've already been doing this monthly. If you're visiting, not that Amsterdam gets a lot of visitors unless you have family here, stop by. If you don't live here, you'll be surprised by the hit-or-miss service. Depending on your server, you might get lots... More

I love Russo's homemade bread and sandwiches. This unique little restaurant always seems stuck in the past with its old booths and round tables but the food is fresh, made to order, and good. They had a flood a few years ago and received no federal aid in having to do a total redo. I respect their work ethic. Their... More
