I visited the restaurant this evening purely based on the Trip Advisor reviews. The restaurant itself is lovely and the staff are friendly and welcoming. You feel as though you are eating in their home. Good customer service is at the forefront of this restaurant and they take constructive criticism very seriously. While there aren't many vegetarian options, the staff... More

I have to say this IS the best restaurant I have ever been to, not only for the exceptional food but for the amazing services, I have never felt so welcome in a restaurant in all my life! Greated with smiles from all the staff and extremely fast service. The food was cooked beyond perfection, all home cooked fresh food... More

We chose Caruso's at the last minute on a Saturday tea time. The welcome was very warm and friendly, we were seated after a few minutes and given two menus, the early bird and main menu. The early bird menu doesn't have many starters on so we ordered off the main menu and chose mussels in white wine and cream... More

I am a frequent visitor to Italy and can tell you this restaurant is truly Italian. The staff, the food and ambience all make any visit here a real treat. Comparable to Rome, Florence, Venice and Verona. The food is both authentic and delicious. Nowhere better in Stockton

I had heard about Caruso but had never been. I have to say I was very impressed with the quality of the food. We had the early bird menu, which had a good choice on it. I had pizza and it was one of the best I've tasted. The staff were friendly and attentive and service was quick. The owner... More

Always lovely food.. Only comment is there could be more specials and modern food! I do LOVE the homely food. But maybe just a few specials that change and are up to date. Desserts could also be improved!. Staff are absolutely fabulous!! Always happy to help and always have a laugh with them! We go here all the time and... More

My partner and I had a table booked for 7.30pm, shown to our table within 5 minutes. Ordered drinks straightaway and our menu options. Starters were fairly quick, but felt hurried and not very much privacy, quite noisy actually. Main meal came quickly, food was pleasant and tasty. Overall reasonable meal, reasonable price, but wasn't the amotsphere that me and... More

Wonderful meal! A group of 12 colleagues, some whom have been to Caruso's before and some who haven't, warmly greeted by Rocco and his staff. The food was amazing, in particular the chicken Parmesan which the majority ordered. Atmosphere, decor and attentiveness from the staff was second to none, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend this restaurant... More
