The story of Villa Russo found its beginning at the hands of two sons of Italian immigrants whose dedication and hard work nurtured the growth of a small pizzeria into a full service restaurant. The Russo Family’s love for food traveled through the family’s unique Italian recipes, building a loyal following through the journey. The family used their catering expertise to open a banquet hall next to their restaurant, marking the founding of the contemporary venue that is Villa Russo. After hosting the first wedding reception in 1977, the Russo brothers discovered their true passion: catering the special moments in the lives of their beloved patrons. Now operated by a second-generation family, Villa Russo continues the tradition of old world values and traditions that keep their clients coming back year after year. What started out as a small family-owned pizzeria in Queens over 58 years ago is now one of New York’s most successful and passionate catering venues.
