OLD WILDWOOD LANDMARKS
Jul 8th, 2008, 3:42pm
 
Is Russo's Italian Restaurant in North Wildwood still open?
 
 
Does anyone remember Maggio's Italian Market on Pacific Ave?
 
I know that it is long gone, but they had the best Italian coldcuts and rolls in all of the Wildwoods.

There is a well known deli and market at 9th & Ocean called Russo's, but I don't think that is the same place you are referring to. Do you remember where the restaurant in North Wildwood was?
 
Maggio's... sounds incredibly familiar, but I can't place it...

Yeah, Jim, I remember Maggio's.  
 
I wouldn't call it "long gone"—seems to me I walked by it only a few years ago. But that could be my warped sense of time at work, since I also remember the Battle of Gettysburg, and Bea Arthur and I had a regular play date. Grin  
 
I'm sure Maggio's was there well into the '90s anyway. My father used to go there for rolls, too, on the morning runs when he would sneak out for provisions, a/k/a indulging in the daily escape from the womenfolk. (The tiny size of our family made other escape routes impractical. Cool)

Haha, extra points for that one...  Grin
 
Do you remember around where Maggio's was located on Pacific? I have a very vague memory of this place, I think, but I can't quite place it.
 
As for "Russo's," in addition to the deli/market in NW and the restaurant of the same name that still operates on Park Ave. in WW proper, I believe there might also have been a "Russo's Restaurant" (completely separate entity from the others) in NW. Not sure about that, though, and would need someone to confirm...

Al's right there was a Russo's restaurant in NWW I believe it was open as late as 06. It was on the north side of one of the # streets some where between 5th and 11th if I remember correctly. I ate there once in the mid 90s it was O.K. but nothing special and obviously not very memorable.

That sounds about right from what I can remember, Art.  
 
Funny, though, I can't seem to find a listing anywhere online. And, I agree, I'm fairly sure it was still in operation just a few years ago.

Within a block or two north or south of the Boyer Museum site (Spicer/Spencer), I believe, but my recollection is also vague. Since it was on Dad's early morning route, I very rarely got the chance to actually go to Maggio's. I'd wake up to the sound of him trying not very successfully to make a catlike exit from the motel room. Cool

wow, Kathi, that sentence brought back memories. I too remember my Dad doing same thing to get rolls in WW in the late 60's.. .I can still see him in the darkness of the room and can still hear the seagulls making their morning sounds.  Smiley

Hehe, glad I wasn't the only one getting left out of the fun. To this day, walking or driving, we love to go out on any errand in Wildwood, right? I know part of the strategic thinking, though, was that if only Dad goes shopping, not as much money gets spent. Wink Maybe that was on your dad's mind, too?

I remember Maggio's very well.  As for a Russo's Rest. in NW - I honestly don't remember ever seeing it.  I've lived here all my life.  I know the market on Ocean.  Between 5th & llth, I can't recall anything.

Russo's Restaurant has been a WW fixture for 84 years. It is on Park Blvd across from Otten's Harbor. Up for sale!
