Famous authors once said, "Food that is not made from scratch should not be consumed, but disposed of near bodies of water." For $10, today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of homemade food at Russo’s New York Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen, a romantic restaurant that features made-from-scratch Italian tastes.

Start an Italian feast with homemade meatballs ($3.95) and taking turns translating quotes from Sling Blade into Italian. Delve into Russo's hearty menu and immediately notice the multitude of coal-fired pizza options. Order by the slice (starting at $3.50) or customize your pie (starting at $11.95 for 12" plus $1.50 for each topping). Preconceived pizza selections includes the Paisano pizza with Italian sausage, pepperoni, peppers, and onions ($12.95) and several specialty pizzas such as the chicken rustica with fresh spinach, roma tomatoes, mozzarella, and feta ($15.95 medium, $20 large) and the hearty, healthy veggie pizza with spinach, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, tomatoes, mozzarella, and garlic ($14.95, $19.95).

- Fantastic appetizing bread brought out before the meal; crispy yet chewy w/olive oil and fresh rosemary. Pizzas were very good, crust is same as bread, crispy yet chewy...the perfect meeting of the two. Looking forward to return trip soon. – Eric G. Moden, Urbanspoon
- Best pizza around. Great place love the fire pots adds to the patio dinning. – Dwane, Urbanspoon
- I'm a well known crazed pizza fanatic and there's only a few i really love, and that includes Russo's pizza. – TG g., Yelp
Russo's New York Pizzeria
With parents hailing from Sicily and Naples, Anthony Russo enjoyed an Italian upbringing. By age 12, he spent much of his time in the kitchen, learning to prepare Old World recipes with his family and family friends. And from the flurry of Italian phrases and conversation, one quote of his father's stuck with him most: "If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it!"
Several decades later, Anthony has hand-tossed his own Italian restaurant franchise and, true to his father's words, employs fresh ingredients in the same family recipes that were passed down to him. Amid exposed brick and walls the warm hue of marinara, skilled chefs craft New York–style brick-oven pizzas with toppings such as spinach, sundried tomatoes, and eggs. Servers stand ready to answer questions about the restaurant’s wine lists, letting guests know which wines pair best with the pizzotto sandwich or whether pinot noir can really turn dogs invisible.
