Tired, hungry and didn't want to go far so we decided on Italian and Caruso's. We made the right choice. Huge portions of great food. Spaghetti and meatballs was perfect. Nicely spiced and hot! The lasagna was was as good as my own or so my husband said. (We talked about that 😉). The wait staff... read more

We used to frequent this restaurant when I was young, back then it was one of the better Italian places on the Peninsula. Tonight we ordered a medium sized pizza, half cheese half combination and it was fair at best. I'm almost certain that the original owner are no longer involved with this establishment. The sauce on the pizza was... More

There were 4 of us eating. We had a meat pizza, artichoke heart appetizer, cheesy garlic bread and spaghetti with meatballs. Everything was excellent and our waiters were very helpful and extremely friendly.

Young, hungry family members were eager to to be fed after a day of moving furniture. Got clued in to Caruso's and were not disappointed. Ordered, ate great, received modest bill, left a generous tip for the vine service, and all left with knowledge of another fine choice for family dining is right on the corner, and right on the...

I enjoyed my dinner here. Tasty Italian, well prepared. Friendly staff, I had an early dinner so not many customers. Staff checked in a few times during my meal to make sure everything was ok. I would eat here again.

We choose this place because it was right across the street from our motel. After reading the Yelp reviews we were skeptical about it because of its low rating. We still went because it was convenient. We ordered the lobster ravioli, garlic cheese bread, chicken calzone, prawn linguine, and the Greek salad. We were surprised how big the portions were....

We were staying in Monterey for a few days after a cruise out of San Francisco. We were staying at the Best Western nearby and decided that we had a taste for Italian and didn't want to go searching through downtown. Much to our surprise, they were closed Sunday night. Ok. We'll go on Monday. But Monday they were closed... More

We had a party of six and everybody's food was excellent! I ordered a basil and mushroom pizza that was so fresh and tasty. The others ordered pasta dishes and the sauces were amazing! Service was spot on as well and they were all super friendly and knowledgeable about the food they serve there. Decor could definitely use some updating.... More

I ate at Caruso's on a Sunday night and enjoyed the quiet location. The menu was traditional with pizza that is claimed to be their speciality. I had spaghetti and ravioli. Enjoyable, but average.

Caruso's is across the street from the Comfort Inn that we were staying at. You just walk to the corner and cross the street, was very convenient. We had a pizza that we shared and one person had Meatball and Spaghetti. The pizza was deep dish and delicious and the meatball was large and very filling.
