Food was tasty but got our meals at 3 different times. It was a pretty busy evening. Prom night and day before Mother’s Day. All the food was great and our waiter very attentive despite back up in the kitchen. We will still be back though. Food always quality and great value.

Then, additionally, the inside seating available in a booth was too close to a large group and physically run down & shabby looking. That’s when we fled!

If you can’t do pasta then don’t have it on the menu! Seats at the booth were old and falling apart. Table of 4 but only had plates & silverware for 2 & one of the sides plates was dirty.

Service was completely not what I expected. Waitress was very obnoxious and kept trying way too hard to interject in our conversations. At one point waitress found it ok to make fun of me which is not what I would expect from an establishment like Russos.

Waiter was not familiar with menu and could not answer or recommend anything. We kept having to request refills on drinks. Our main entries took a long time even though the restaurant was not busy. When they did , they came out at different times, my wife’s dish came out first then 10 minutes pasted before the next one , couple minutes more others began to arrive. Overall for the prices, food was ok, spaghetti was drowned in sauce which made it soupy. Baked manicotti’s didn’t come out as requested missing. Cheese and other requested items.

My dish came out as the completely wrong dish, went back and was re-made, however my wife’s still had not come out, and when it did(15 minutes later) it was missing two components. Third bad experience, will not be back. It’s a shame, too. Russo’s was fantastic until the management change two years ago.

The food was excellent. I highly recommend the Pesto Chicken Pasta. The menu is rather large and it was difficult to narrow down what I wanted…..everything sounded good. I imagine this would be a great place for a larger family and kids.

The beginning of the night started well. The garlic knots were great. We got a custom pizza, simple w pepperoni and sausage, it was quick and a really good pizza. The problem was we had ordered a large order of wings ($15) and they sat at the server window our entire meal time. The cooks rang the bell multiple times and even tried flagging down our server. She was preoccupied the whole time folding napkins at the front. 3 servers and the manager all checked the ticket and promptly but the wings back down. No one helped anyone. When a guy brought the wings (I was about to get them myself) we returned them because we had finished eating already. The server finally came back, still clueless about our meal, when we asked the wings be removed she tried to push them on us as a to-go and then said she would have to cancel them being made, again, no clue about all the events. Awful service. Manager was busy running the bar.

Nothing to write home about. The two pasta dishes we had both had their Italian sausage. Sadly, the sausage was so spicy neither of us could finish or meals. The pizza we ordered had so much oregano sprinkled on top that we could smell it before it even got to our table. We were seated outside and about halfway through our meal a group of about 20 was seated outside with us. Our server was working them and us alone, after we finally received our bill, I sat a very long time to pay, looking inside the restaurant I saw at least five servers standing around the bar chatting with the bartender. I finally took things over and walked into the bar and requested that he process my payment as none of the other staff could take some initiative and help our server. In fact, as they quickly dispersed, one of them stated to me that it was divided, and our server was only one assigned to outside dining area. Really! The manager of this restaurant should find another line of work as it is evident that managing what possibly could be a good Italian restaurant was not his forte. Between the quality of the food and the lackadaisical attitude of the staff, this place will never be on our go to list.

Sorry, but it was. There was a UTSA cup sitting on the hostess stand dripping from sweat, but no hostess. Nobody acknowledged us when we walked in and there was a man making pizza a few feet away. A simple, “someone will be right there” could have gone a long way. Finally, I think it was a manager yelled from behind the bar that someone was coming. A lady sat us. There was nobody there…. inside anyway, maybe three other tables. The booth seats were falling apart. It just looked so sad. The menu was different than the one on Open Table. That’s fine, but the whole experience was just unsatisfactory. I got chicken cannelloni which says it chicken, spinach, and cheese. There were giants chunks of something orange. I asked the server and he asked another server and their best guess was that it was the chicken. “That’s how the chicken looks when they buy it.” I was super turned off I couldn’t take another bite. He came back later and said it was carrots. Cool! Would have been nice to know that it was chicken, spinach, cheese and carrots! Anyway, first and last visit.

The only reason i gave 4/5 was because their system went down while we were checking out. Initial they said it was our card, so we tried another, and another, only to be told it was their system, and if we could pay in cash. We did not have cash, and so one of us headed to the closes ATM to get cash in order to pay.

We were sitting outside and there was plenty of seats available. Finally got seated outside. The front desk lady seemed a bit annoyed but eventually took us outside. Service was good but the food gave us stomach issues later. Overall ok but will not be returning. Kind of ruined my Mother's Day gift for my wife. Sad people ruin events for others and don't realize the significance certain holidays are for others.
