The BEST food. - An Eventective User from Saint Louis, MO

I hired Russo's to cater a party and was thrilled with them. The best part of the meal was their beef barley soup !!! The staff helped me navigate through the menu as well as their frozen offerings. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful! I decided to go with their 1/2 soup and 1/2 sandwich combo. I got the salsiccia sandwich (split salsiccia with marinara and provolone) and their salsiccia chili. The chili alone is worth going out of your way to try. I thought it was a perfect blend of meat, red beans (not kidney beans), sauciness, and just enough spiciness; everything seemed well balanced and proportionate in both flavor and size of ingredients. A hearty champion indeed! The bread the sandwich came on was so freaging good; chewy and soft all at the same time, and you could actually taste the sesame flavor the seeds lended. The piece of split salsiccia was fresh, had plump texture, and authentic Italian seasoning (plenty of fennel seed!). Provolone cheese and a drizzle of marinara topped it off. The cheese was good, as was the marinara, but I would have liked to have a little more sauce on my sandwich (totally personal preference). I think the balance would have been just right for most people. Important to note, is that they have a list of 11 cheeses to choose from, as well as a whole host of ""toppings"" I could have added as well--a customizable meal! They have a good sized menu of sandwiches, both cold and hot, as well as salads, pasta, and sides. They carry Coke and Fitz's beverages, as well as brew fresh iced tea. You can get Dad's oatmeal cookies and a few other treats, including frozen Snickers bars. This is probably not the place to go if you are watching carbs or calories. There are a few vegetarian options, but I didn't see anything vegan-friendly. They also have frozen pastas, speidini, pizzas, etc. and provide options for catering. Everyone raved about the food, I can't wait to visit Russo's Gourmet Catering again.
