Great Location and food.

This restaurant was next to our hotel. We avoided it until one evening we returned to our room and had a very pleasant meal. Location is fantastic if you like to shop.

From the outside, Caruso's looks every bit 'the real deal', inside, it's very quaint, cozy & romantic. Attention to detail with decor & furniture spot on. We walked in last Monday evening without a booking & was given a table immediately, service was attentive without being annoying. Plenty to chose from if you eat meat, however I prefer vegetarian options.... More

You can go there for a simple pizza but you will find yourself among people having superior seafood and/or and lamb, the vegetables are not cooked as desired and the potato was nothing but waterish. Dessert was home made icecream and mouthwatering super. Prices are OK for what is served. the Manager is not the kind people, by far. He... More

We were drawn towards the candle lights and finely decorated interiors as we walked the street and decided to have dinner here. What we loved most about the place was its decor, great paintings and lovely fresh white roses. We are vegetarians and ordered a vegetarian soup, veg pizza and a pasta. Quality and taste of food was excellent. We... More

We ate here 12.3.15, arrived about 9pm they squeezed us in as very busy. Despite busy they served us straight away. Being latish we just went for pizza and I had the fried king prawns, sweet chilli salad. Prawns succulent, not chewy, light crispy coating with dip on a lovely mixed salad. Pizza was just the right medium thickness base,... More

Off to the corner and on the Midborgin Okkar, the casual Italian restaurants has great appetizers, first and second courses to choose for every taste. Excellent pastas in a romantic setting. Nice people watching from the window seats.

we've been coming to caruso on and off for 8 years. they have a very good wine selection and good options for food at reasonable prices (for iceland). one little feature that most people miss is the small upstairs bar (for dining patrons only). Since they had to move in early 2015 (closer to the plaza on Austurstraeti), the bar... More

This was an expensive meal but well worth it. The service was fantastic, friendly, attentive and faultless. The food was delicious and cooked to our liking. The surroundings were cosy and atmospheric. I really cannot fault this restaurant.

We had an evening meal there last week, both fish dishes cod and salmon and they were excellent. The dishes even came with vegetables and a baked potato. Excellent service by the waitress.
