Went there for lunch with work colleagues, as we saw that for example their lasagne was more than 50% cheaper compared to some of the nearby restaurants. The service was just average, nothing to complain about but nothing to talk about either, and the food was very good (I had fish of the day, which was pan seared cod). Great... More

We are a family of vegetarians, and the waiter was very flexible in changing ingredients of several kinds of pasta dishes to accommodate our needs. The food was tasty and the whole atmosphere was very nice. If you like Italian food, this is a good choice while in Reykjavik.

I can sympathise with Caruso's being on the main drag in Reykjavik and having tourists getting on your nerves all the time but being one of those tourists and paying exactly the same as the regulars, I would have liked to be treated well but I found most of the staff to be cool and disinterested to the point of...

No surprises here: we enjoyed the evening and food was OK. Nothing to complain about, nothing to very happy about either. Potturinn og Pannan at the other side of town offered better food for the same price.

I last visited Caruso's in December, 2012 and it was great, I went back twice on this last visit to Iceland in July, 2015. Once for dinner and once for lunch. Caruso's has a new location, a nice bar and absolutely fantastic food. It is a must go to in Reykjavik.

Overall a really cosy restaurant to visit ! The service was fantastic and the food was superb ! The reason why I do not give it the excellent label is because the tables are too close together and you can not really enjoy your meal to the fullest because of that. But apart from that - I loved it :)

We booked a reservation here as a break from all the more typical Icelandic food we were eating during our stay. The pizzas were very good. Only gripe is that we were kept waiting for 20 minutes to get a table even though we had a reservation.
