I got chicken Parmesan for main but found this a little sickly. However everyone else who ordered the Parmesan enjoyed it thoroughly I think it was just my taste. Everything... More

Fantastic Italian food but none of the wine has a price in the menus so can be expensive! If you do not drink then this is the best Italian within 50 miles!

Description
Caruso. Our great authentic Italian restaurant offers a unique and welcoming environment in which to share life's best moments with friends and family whilst enjoying our delicious food, dessert and wines. You'll be greeted by the enticing aromas of freshly home cooked meals which has been our focus since we opened our doors 35 years ago. Italian food has long been synonymous with health, tradition, culture, history and authentic taste. "A tavola non si invecchia.- Italian proverb. Translation: "At the table with good friends and family you do not become old." We have a small but pleasant bar on entering, the menu is served in the restaurant, the feel is warm and welcoming. Rocco the owner, time permitting will greet you and show you to your table, he has been cooking all his life and brings Italian charm and good humour to the table.
