The salad was fresh and... More

This is the second time I have been here and it has not disappointed me. Very nice atmosphere for a smaller place. The food is excellent and the wait staff is very friendly. The prices are high, but I don't mine paying for good food and I walk out full and happy with the experience. The location is off the... More

A friend took me here for dinner. It's what you look for, that out of the way place with amazing food. The smell when you walk in the door lets you know that you are in for a treat. We had the mushrooms stuffed with sausage to start, then the fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken and was what I've been... More

While on a visit to Scranton, we ate at this restaurant with friends. The food was very good and the portions wee generous. I liked the cheese-stuffed ravioli that I ordered but the marinara sauce was not among my favorites. I recognize that that is a matter of choice. The server was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was noisy... More

Was there this week for a business dinner. Was not sure about it at first but looks are deceiving. It is located in an odd section of town. The menu is overwhelming. In fact they might have to many options to choose from. On top of the regular menu they have "specials" every day. The bread was delicious and they... More

Very good homemade Italian food which is moderately priced. Been coming here for years off and on and glad we went back this time. Not downtown New York cuisine but when in Scranton this is a good choice

Our first time dining at Russell's. Both food and service were outstanding. Large selection on the menu. We had salads, fish and veal. Large portions. All delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. Could not have been a better experience.

My first visit was for a birthday celebration for my sister in law. The staff made you feel very welcome and the feeling overall was very alive. Then the drinks and food came. drinks were made to perfection and the food as well. I enjoyed a seafood plate with Scallops shrimp and fish. My wife had an amazing New York... More
