This was a very nice surprise, not your average pizza place. Very friendly and good service, and an excellent choice of pizzas, as well as many other dishes too. Limited but good selection of wines at a reasonable price. Weather permitting you can sit outside and enjoy the breeze from the sea.

The salad was great and very fresh. The bread was very flavorful and was a great addition. We ordered the Mulberry pizza which has four different meats on it. Excellent flavor with plenty of toppings. A very nice dinner at a reasonable price. Service was good. You have to order at the counter but they bring the food to you... More

The place is nice with plenty of parking, plenty of interior space, even some outside tables, clean, and nicely decorated. I ate stromboli calzone that comes with a tomato sauce. It tasted and was cooked perfectly. I have gone their before, but this is not the only thing they do well. The Margherita is also good. They also have a... More

Our family stayed in Galveston for the Galvez Hotel Thanks giving buffet which was excellent. Friday after Thanksgiving looking for pizza or Italian we went to Russo's. I've always wanted to try Russo's and glad we did go. There were nine of us so we ordered and shared three different pizzas, all three were excellent. Also they have Peroni beer,... More

This little pizzeria is down the seawall a ways tucked into a little strip mall. The pizza is hand tossed and pretty good (ours was a little overdone on the bottom). The toppings were a tad sparse. The sauce was good. You can get a reasonably priced ginormous pizza. All in all it is an okay pizzeria.

I went for liunch on a weekday and the place was pretty slow when I arrived. By the time I left the place was getting more and more busy. The pizza and salad were excellent. The service was good, but not fantastic. You order at the counter and then go sit down at a table. They will deliver the food.... More

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.
