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.

Busy Friday evening. Staff seem rushed and trying to serve too many customers. Pizzas were good but bases could have been thinner and crispy. Two pizzas, one beer and 1/2 carafe red wine ...$60?

My wife cannot eat garlic (I know it's sad ). Many non-chain Italian places will make her Alfredo without the garlic and not only did they do that here, they also made us a batch of bread before dinner with no garlic that we didn't even ask for. As for my lasagna... It was huge, meaty, and one of the... More

Tasty food and very nice service. Open only until 10pm, a lot of tables inside, but it was not busy, maybe 5-6 customers around. Good selection of beer, nice pizza with option of free box to take leftover home.

The bread was so good!! It came free with our dinner. I also loved the lasagna, totally worth the wait. Great food in a crappy part of town.

Authentic Italian food, good service, and reasonably priced. Had the cheese raviolis (1/2 order was way more than enough!!) and hubby had chicken parmigiana and said it was some of the best he's ever eaten. Owner came around to each table and asked how things were. Very pleasant atmosphere and good food - we will be back.

We were staying at the Best Western Plus De Anza Inn in Monterey. After a long day of sightseeing the last thing we wanted to do was go searching for a particular restaurant. The Hotel staff said that this place was good. Well they sure were correct. One of the best meals we ever had and our Lady server was... More

Right across the street from hotels. Casual atmosphere. Good for kids - if your kids don't like green things ask that they don't put herbs on the kids fries. Food was good. A nice average place to eat.
