Mixed Up Orders, Disorganized Service

Had lunch here recently and immediately liked the new location and décor. We were seated promptly with drink and food orders being taken soon after that. Our problems started with the food. There were five of us that all ordered at the same time but our food dribbled to the table piece by piece... read more

Caruso's has moved across the Penn Grant Road intersection with 272 North into a spanking new, high-quality restaurant. It is much more than take-out. We were there on a Saturday nite, and all dozen-plus tables were filled the whole time.Soup delicious--as were manicotti and two veal dishes. Service extremely friendly--and the serves helped each other. At least on Saturdays, it's... More

Great atmosphere (just moved to new location). The kitchen staff had a difficult time with specials orders on both visits. Wait for food was very long.

Classic pizza found in an unlikely location. Excellent late night snack. At an excellent intersection. We will go there again.

Pizza, hoagies and other Italian items make a great lunch or supper at home--or in the small restaurant. People are friendly, the pizzas delicious with thin crust, and hoagies are huge and taste great. Highly recommended.

The only reason I choose this place over any of the others that are in Willow Street is because they have gluten free pizza (for my wife). I now found out that another place in town also has gluten free so i will be going there in the future. Their regular pizza is only fair and service is both hit... More

We visited Caruso's for dinner. We had been there before, and the food generally has been good. This time, the three of us ordered a slice of pizza, a cheesesteak and an Italian sub. All of the food was good - good flavor, seemed fresh, and the bread was particularly good. We were rather wondering if the staff was on... More

This place is so bad. I went there one time and it was a bad experience eating in. I decided to give them a second try with take out. Needless to say we got a raw meatball sub when we returned home. I will be calling the department of health on them.

Filthy. Disgustingly so. And shamefully unprofessional. I recently placed an order over the phone. Was told to pick it up in 45 minutes. When I showed up 45 minutes later, my order was not done. I waited another thirty five minutes until it was ready. Lo and behold, when I got home I discovered that it was not my order... More

The portion size was so big we couldn't eat it all. We shared a sandwich and order of cheese fries. Next time we will look for a smaller meal! We would definitely go back there!
