Wonderful Italian

Excellent Italian food in a quaint atmosphere. This restaurant is in an out of the way strip shopping center but don't let that fool you - the service and food are excellent.

Caruso's is my absolute favorite restaurant in the Lake Norman area. Love the food, the ambiance and the wait staff, particularly Michael. I've never had less than great food here. It's our go-to place when we want a great meal.

We had dinner with friends at Caruso's the other night and I was very impressed. It's in a struggling little strip mall but the interior is warm and inviting and the staff was very professional and friendly.

We save Caruso's for special times. And it is always over the top. The vin santo gelato dessert is beyond description, just order it. You will nor be disappointed.

this restaurant is unique and has great fun- it is a little on the small side but that makes it intimate and the food is primarily Italian but upscale in every way

Whats funny is I read the NOT AGAIN review below, so I had to say something. Its a shame some people are so anti social. Yes people laugh and talk here during dinner, A LOT. Because they are happy. This is the best Italian Bolognese Ive had period, and I have been fortunate to travel and try pasta in many... More
