Russo’s Ristorante has been owned and operated by Jack and Vikki Russo since 1989. Previously known as Pasta al Dente, the restaurant was reinvented and renamed in 2009. Russo is now celebrating its 28th Anniversary.

Featuring Jack and Vikki’s favorite recipes, a new menu was created serving seafood, steak and pastas. Some of the customer favorites are Chilean Sea Bass, Bone-In Rib Eye and Linguini di Mare, to name a few.

Russo’s is also known for their freshly baked focaccia bread, served nightly with their signature sun-dried tomato olive oil. They also feature awesome desserts such as tiramisu, home made cannoli and creme brulee caramelized table side.

Russo’s has a lovely private banquet room ideal for birthdays and special occasions.

In addition, their outside patio dining is perfect for those romantic evenings. Remember, it’s the simple joys…fine food, fine wine and fine friends that make it all worthwhile. And you can find them all at Russo’s.

Jack and Vikki invite you to enjoy the sounds of family and friends having memorable times around the dining table. Better yet, sit down and join in at Russo’s…Where Everyone is Family.

Russo’s is open nightly from 5 p.m. Sundays open early at 3 p.m. For reservations, call (562) 433-1616
