“Fabulous pizzeria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2008

This pizzeria is the original I Carusi, older sister to the one in St Kilda. Its located next to a Halal meat distributor in a primarily residential part of Brunswick with no other restaurants around but if you drive past on any night except Monday you will notice the smiling faces of customers enjoying their pizza inside. We love this place, its got a great community vibe and is often full of families enjoying a meal together. The menu is limited with just pizza and dessert pizza but both are done very well and the staff add a joy to the small and intimate space which adds to the positive feel. The only detraction is the limited outer seating, but with cars rushing by on Holmes St, sitting outside with the petrol fumes probably is not the best way to enjoy your pizza with your dinner company.
