Russo's on 33 ~ Millstone (Luchento's)

So...I was REALLY hoping this place was going to be good, but I did not go with my gut feeling and it was just plain bad. First off...we arrived on a Saturday night (2 weeks ago) at 5 pm. The hostess who has been there forever asked if we had a reservation. My husband laughed and said, "Seriously". The place had so many empty tables, but she told us there was a half hour wait. We should have left....

Anyway, we waited then we finally got our table only to open the menu and find THE SAME BORING MENU as the past 15 years....shoot me now. My husband had a pasta special in a cream and truffle sauce. When it arrived it was more like a soup with pasta swimming in it. HORRIBLE. Over sauced to the extreme.

I had the strip steak but it tasted more like a chuck steak. It was ok, but really not worth the $ 30 something it was.

There was another party behind us and 2 of them sent back their food. I don't know what the issue was. By the time we left, the place was still rather empty at 7ish.

Moral of this story....I WILL NEVER GO BACK. The menu is terrible, while the staff was nice, I just don't see this place making it with that menu. Oh.PLEASE change it!!
