“Great Food, Large portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We were staying at the Best Western (great value, BTW), a hundred yards away, and decided to try this. We were planning to bring our own wine, but we felt that the corkage fee of $10 was too much for a neighborhood restaurant, so we got carryout and drank a good bottle in the hotel room. We got one lasagna and one burger, and both were huge portions. We ate the leftovers the next day since we could microwave them in our hotel room. Delicious food, friendly service (they even threw in a "loaf" of bread!) Def'n do over the next time we're in Monterey.

“Terrific Italian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Don't be fooled by the exterior, this restaurant was awesome. Relaxed and casual atmosphere with very attentive waiters. The food was terrific! The Chicken a la Creme (yum!) was just that. Pricing was very reasonable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Welcoming and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We came here for dinner, with kids, after a tiring hiking day. They were very busy but welcomed us - and any other guest - with a smile.

Waitress was friendly and efficient. Food arrived quickly. Was simple and very good.

This is not a place for fancy dinner, but for a good meal at the end of day it is highly recommended.

“it may be sufficient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Italian cuisine is other thing, but, well, after fifteen days that one eats mexican beans or Mc Donald, Caruso's is not so bad. In fact the food was good: tagliatelle 4 cheese, salmon and vegetables in the same dish is not in italian tradition (and salmon is not an italian fish), but all was well cooked and tasty.
An Italo-moreAmerican food but not so bad.
