A little bit about us

Since 1967, the Russo family has been changing West Michigan's dining traditions. Joseph and Stella Russo first opened Russo's Italian Restaurant in Grand Rapids, Michigan with a vision to provide meaningful service and delicious dining.

Their vision continued to expand in 1995, when they built Russo's Italian Restaurant next to Leonardo's, operating both sites. In 2011 sisters Rosa Russo-Calabrese and Ina Bottum took over and combined the two sites into one what is now Russo’s Pizza Bar and Grille. Today Russo's Pizza Bar and Grille is owned by Brian DeBoer.

Although the owners have changed, the tradition of dedication and hard work continues. By creating valuable connections with our customers, and serving quality and authentic Italian and American dishes we have been blessed to operate additional locations of Russo's Bar & Grille in Hopkins, Dorr and Burnap.
