A little gem of a restaurant. The tea time specials are great value and the friendly staff attend to you as if you are family. I have recommended this restaurant to friends at work who thanked me for telling them, that's how good it is. Your not paying for decor just good food and a lovely atmosphere. It's like travelling...

I have eaten at this lovely little Italian many times over the years and I just love it! There is something to suit everyone's taste and budget as Rocco the owner does a happy hour on week nights and as well as the standard menu there are always specials. The atmosphere is intimate and Rocco is usually about to check... More

A family party of twelve of us visited Caruso ,there was not one complaint from anybody.The food was great ,we had five different starters ,and seven different main meals with everybody happy. The service was first class. A really good night out in what I would call an old fashioned restaurant.The prices were very good value.

Last Saturday went to The Arc in Stockton. We decided to go to Carusos after reading reviews on this site. We were not to be disappointed, the service was great only to be outdone by the wonderful food which was served with great bonhomie. We will be back

I went with the family for a Birthday Tea taking advantage of the Happy Hour Menu which I believe runs from 5-7pm. This was a first visit as I do not usually choose Italian Food preferring Asian. However, this place changed my mind. As you enter the restaurant, it takes you back years. It is laid out as a proper... More

This is our very favourite family restaurant. We have been going for years and the kids always want to go here. Rococo, the owner, is kind and friendly, and always makes us feel so welcome and at home. The other staff are great too. The Parmos are the best I have ever tasted! Great food. Great prices. We love it!

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.
