Russo's New York Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: As proud as Texans are, they still have to admit some of the best pizzas in town come from a joint called Russo's New York Pizzeria. Toppings that range from feta cheese to basil, artichoke hearts, capers and fresh garlic complement perfectly crisp pizza crusts. You can create your own deep-dish Sicilian version, too. Specialty pies include a heart-healthy vegetable option and a Greek pizza with black olives, feta, spinach, Roma tomatoes, basil and lots of mozzarella. For an appetizer consider the eggplant rollatini stuffed with herbs and finished with a flavorful tomato sauce. Among the fine pasta dishes is bowtie shrimp marinara with portobello mushrooms and garlic. Other locations.
