My wife and I had heard about the new "Wine Bar" at Caruso's and thought we'd give it a try. We went on a Sunday for a light lunch. It wasn't overly busy and we were seated right away. The decor is very nice and rich looking with a very nice wood floor and unique furnishings. It was a bit... More

Very good pizzas made with fresh ingrediants, these pizzas are not your typical chain pizza but a fine dining experience at a decent price

One of the nicer restaurants in the lake area. My wife and I were a bit put off because the hostess guided us to the bar area and we had to ask to be seated in the dinning area. The ambiance is very nice in the dinning room. We both had spaghetti, one with meatballs and one with sausage. They... More

Have been going to Caruso's for over 25 years. Food is reliably good; the Italian pasta dishes are authentic, and there are selections for those who don't wish to eat Italian.

Just another awesome meal for the gang at Caruso's. We each ordered something different and no one had any complaints. The portions were generous and the atmosphere warm.

Live in area, been here many times and called ahead twice and reassured our Bachelorette party of 8 would be treated well despite not taking reservations. When arrived, hostess was rude, irritable and said at least an hour and too bad. Other diners were being treated poorly, in waiting area, food wait was aprox an hr, checks were totally incorrect...

We celebrated our anniversary here and Rachel was an excellent server! She was friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating. The bread sticks were HUGE with lots of butter!!! The atmosphere felt authentically Italian with the stucco walls, wine bottle vases, paintings etc. The caesar salad lacked taste. I recommend a creamier dressing, versus the very light (watered down) version. The pasta alfredo... More
