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

Ive been to this restaurant so many times over the last 25 years and I am alway pleased with menu. My last visit a few days ago I was very happy to see that they have changed the menu to include many new dishes, added non gmo local meats and now have a tasting bar! Some of my favorites are...

Food service quality. Pricey and snotty waitress. This one old waitress is real passive aggressive. We eat there once a year in hopes it gets better. The bread sticks are awesome, salad good, food okay. But they never have music playing just screaming kids by the boatload. Like an Italian Chucky Cheese? Do not take a date there, FAIR WARNING!!!...

We enjoyed our meal here with a large group (2nd time). Cozy and definitely a locals favorite but it was ok for those of us that were from out of town.
