Delicious!

I tried the Garden Salad, Bresaola appetizer (a rich, air-dried salted beef) and the Tagliatella Tartufo pasta, all of them were very tasty. My friend ordered the pizza with 4 Different Varieties. Its a good idea to be able to enjoy four kinds of pizza served on one plate, he loved it. After... read more

We had a very enjoyable dinner and while the prices are expensive, all of the dishes we had were very well done. We will definitely return.

A visit back to my birth town and whilst here invariably I try to include a visit to Cafe Caruso this small Italian town restaurant, nothing flash about the decor , just a very busy Italian serving great food at reasonable prices, and with a cheerful management and staff. Due to town market alterations the restaurant will be resited and... More

Located across the street of Alliance Francaise, we decided to walk in for lunch as we didn't have to move our parked car (parking is scarce in this area which might be a problem on busy evenings). We had spinach ravioli, tuna carpaccio, brushetta and a pizza. All of the dishes were good. Nothing fancy but good. Prices were on... More

I'm Italian, and when I go for Italian food probably I'm a bit severe in my evaluations. Having read quite good reviews, I was having great expectations about Caffe' Caruso. Well, at the end of the evening I was having a mixed feeling. The restaurant is located in Makati, in a quite busy area, and parking might be a problem.... More

Can't say it enough pizza, pizza, pizza! The food at Caruso is good but if it's pizza you are looking for this is the place, probably the best in Makati. I like the open kitchen, parking is always easy and the service while not over the top is decent. They have a good selection of Italian food and will even... More

Best authentic Italian I`ve had so far in Manila. Easy to see there is a strong Italian influence behind everything in this restaurant from the ambiance, wood oven, open kitchen, wine list, and service, to the quality and selection of food. Located directly across from the Alliance Francaise in Makati, this Italian resto is deceivingly large and an unexpected treasure... More

I have been a fan of this place for years but yesterday I showed up 20 minutes early for a 6pm meeting and was told by a staff member that was perched on the steps that the restaurant was closed till 6. I explained that I was meeting guests there at 545 and can he just let me in, his... More

While all the food is good at Caruso when it comes to pizza this is the best you will find in Makati.

We had three amazing meals here. I would strongly recommend the Octopus Carpaccio, Tuna Carpaccio, Lamb Shank, Pasta with clams, garlic and chilli and the pasta with creamy white wine sauce, and to finish the meal, the best Gorgonzola... We had a splendid few evenings, the restaurant is tranquil, amazingly sheltered from the hectic sounds of some of the party... More
