On a cold, blustery Melb. night we found refuge at I Carusi. Our bodies and tummies warmed and satisfied with the smells and tastes of delicious Italian food. Our pizzas delicious, my partner was happy with his gluten free base the topping however perfect. A very generous glass of house red for only $6.00. Go early if you have children... More

Excellent pizza, even better desserts. The service is friendly and attentive. The price is not too bad. The atmosphere is delightful in this restaurant - dimly lit and intimate. If it's your birthday or some special occasion they might put a sparkler or two in your dessert.

The East Brunswick restaurant is a funny little place with the tables all squeezed together, to the extent that sometimes people in tables near the door need to get out so people in the tables deeper in can move through, but it's worth it for the food. No pepperoni pizzas here - only authentic ones just like back in Italy.... More

If you want authentic Italian pizza this is the place to go. Staff friendly. Only downside is no desserts except pizza.

Used to be brilliant, but something changed. I think theres a lack of love these days. Still eat there now and then.
