WELCOME TO RUSSO'S NEW YORK PIZZERIA - OUR FAST CASUAL FRANCHISE CONCEPT
New York is one of the culinary capitals of the world, known for Italian food and, particularly, pizza. Our NY Pizzeria restaurant is reminiscent of the authentic pizzerias from the Italian neighborhoods. Everything is made from scratch with hand-picked ingredients, in traditional Italian style.
In 1992, our first NY Pizzeria in Houston, Texas, was a revelation in the Texas market. Customers were hooked with a single bite, and before long, Russo's was the rave of Houston. We knew we had a hit, and we never looked back.
IT STARTED IN THE RUSSO FAMILY KITCHEN.
The son of first-generation Italian immigrants, Chef Anthony Russo grew up in a New Jersey home where the kitchen was the center of family life. There was always cooking and baking at home. And many of the ingredients came from the family garden. Just as his Grandpa and Nona Russo did back in Avellino, Italy.
These experiences stuck with young Anthony as his family to Galveston, Texas, in 1978. His father opened Russo's Italian Restaurant, which quickly became a local favorite. Just like that, Anthony found a second home in the restaurant kitchen. By the age of 12, he was learning family recipes from relatives who flew in from Naples and Sicily each summer. Making pizza and squachatta (calzones) became a passion.
