We are aspiring to build a lifetime clientele of satisfied customers that feel confident in entrusting their very special occasions to us. It is our personal promise that any occasion celebrated with us will be an extraordinary and treasured event.

The Russo family tradition of hospitality started over 50 years ago when the Villa Russo in Richmond Hill opened its doors. Frank Russo Sr. believed that exemplary service and exquisite cuisine combined with professional attention to detail was the best way to achieve customer satisfaction. Those beliefs were passed down to his son, Frank Russo Jr. who opened Russo's On The Bay in 1987. We have had the honor of hosting events spanning some of our customer's lifetimes from baptisms to Communions to Sweet 16's to Weddings.

Our senior management team has over 200 years of combined experience directing the most lavish events and parties. The most memorable of occasions calls for an exemplary standard in catering. At Russo's On The Bay, we take pride in offering you the most elegant of surroundings. We have an award-winning, highly skilled staff, proficient in all aspects of the hospitality industry. You will find our staff to be courteous, prepared and genuinely concerned with the success of your affair.
