Nothing too fancy, just good basic Italian (ish) food. Pizza, pasta, Parmo (maybe not so Italian after all) All fresh, hot and plenty of it. Good service by friendly staff - allways go back at least once a month !!

We were passing through Stockton in November 2016, to see a musician friend performing at the ARC centre, and had some time before the show. We googled 'restaurants in Stockton' and decided to walk 15 minutes to Casuso based on its reviews. The reviews were accurate! Stockton on Tees struck me as a fairly drab town, but Caruso and its...

I know that some may wonder why I rate Caruso's so high but all I can say is that I have never had a bad meal here. A few friends come to eat here at least three times a year and we all go away very happy and pleasantly full. Rocco and his team are great. Try the Pollo Diana,... More

Been here a couple of times and it is a fantastic place to take your partner, family or hold a small function. The staff are friendly and the place, while small, is very cozy.

Excellent service from this little hidden gem. People drive past all of the time and never give it a second thought but they should. Customers come back time and again. If you like your steak i would highly recommend the fillet steak.

Visited bonfire night, very friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, lovely food. Not over priced - we expected it might be. A perfect night out. Toilets showing their age and I've no idea what all the padded trim is doing on the walls ? Maybe this was chic in Italy back in the 70's ? Everywhere clean. Stewy and trac

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.
