Russo’s is a high-end Italian deli and grocer, but it’s the kind of place where they know the regulars’ orders, and they hand you bites of house made mozzarella assuming that you want to try some, which you definitely do. You can buy very good cheeses, meats, and pastas here, but you should also get one of the loaded deli sandwiches to go, especially any one with that fresh mozzarella.
