Russo's Neighborhood Ristorante & Bar Restaurant Review

: Tucked off the main drag of Naples Island in Long Beach, Russo's has the earmarks of a classic neighborhood Italian restaurant. Its small size adds a touch of intimacy, and its earth-toned walls and Rat Pack-era music evoke an easy charm made even easier with a martini or glass of wine. You’ll find standards like bruschetta, seafood linguine, veal picatta and pizza on the menu. These are complemented by items you might not expect at a diminutive Italian venue, including coconut shrimp served with pineapple-mango chutney sauce or Cajun-style Chilean sea bass. An international array of traditional and contemporary desserts like tiramisu and Manhattan cheesecake await at meal’s end.
