Restaurant Review:
Russo's

Greens, Dubai

Doesn’t Pizza for Iftar sound absolutely heavenly? Especially if you get to sink your teeth in some deliciously cheesy pies from Russo’s New York Pizzeria that are substantial, appetizing and affordable to boot! Russo’s brings the taste of New York style pizzas to Dubai, swearing by the motto “If it isn’t fresh, don’t serve it.” Pure ingredients and the freshest produce goes into creating the wonderful pizzas, appetizers, desserts and more at Russo’s. We’ve previously been awed by the restaurant especially by the famous giant pizza that makes for a great party item and conversation topic. Recently, we were invited to sample the new summer drinks menu and Iftar offers at the restaurant; we went to the branch at the Greens which serves up a lovely view as well. We opted for the Iftar meal for two which gets you House Salads, Minestrone Soups, a medium pizza and dessert (dates and water)! We added an appetizer to the mix as well. Here’s everything we had including the upcoming summer drinks:

Drinks

  • Citrus Splash: Wild Mint Syrup, Lemon & Lime Wedges, Orange Wedges, Mint Leaves, Soda Water
  • Pineapple Coco: Coconut Fruit Mix, Whipping Cream, Pineapple Juice, Fresh Pineapple

Russo’s will be introducing these drinks and quite a few others in the upcoming months and we can safely say that they’re quite refreshing and perfect for the season.

Food

  • Mozarella Fritti: Fresh-Cut Mozzarella Lightly Battered And Fried To A Golden Brown, Served With Russo’s Homemade Marinara Sauce

We split the pizza into the following flavors:

  • Greek: Spinach, Roma Tomatoes, Italian Black Olives, Feta And Mozzarella Cheese, Garlic And Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Buffalo Chicken: Spicy Chicken, Red Onions, All-Natural Mozzarella Cheese, Homemade Pizza Sauce And Spicy Hot Sauce

We have been quite fond of Russo’s pizzas and these didn’t disappoint either. Cheesy to a fault, the pizzas along with the scrumptious appetizer made for a lovely Iftar meal. The salad and soup were simple but a nice way to begin the meal.

Dessert

  • Turtle cheesecake

Everything in the dessert display case looked great thus complicating the choice for us but we eventually went with the Turtle cheesecake and boy are we glad we did! Truly the sweetest way to end the meal.

As always, we enjoyed our visit to Russo’s and look forward to returning for the restaurant’s good old dishes and anything new they introduce!
