I really liked the cosy atmosphere, and it was extremely pleasant to meet the owner+chief+healthy lifestyle enthusiast Sasha. Both the times I visited the restaurant, my food arrived pretty quickly (20-40 minutes), if we consider a freshly prepared meal, which is something I really appreciate. And the food was delicious! And beautifully served. Some dishes come in big portions so... More

We are regulars at Karuzo, going 3 or 4 times a year for the past several years. The restaurant is a "one person show" with Chef Sasha taking reservations, seating guests, taking orders, preparing the food and drinks, serving, cashiering, and bussing tables. During a couple of visits, we've heard a helper in the kitchen, but that's not a regular... More

This absolute gem holds 16 diners maximum and its essential you make a reservation ahead of time, we were lucky we got in two nights in a row. Sacha's heart and soul and culinary passion and finesse oozes out of every corner of the restaurant. It was a sheer delight to enjoy the exquisite fusion of tastes and textures he... More

There are many things I don't understand in life; the tides, how they fit all the tuna in the tin, the list is seemingly endless. However, nothing will baffle me more than how Saša can create such glorious cuisine whilst also being front of house, barman, waiter and probably dishwasher. The man must have two extra arms under his apron... More

I am not a vegetarian but was delighted by the food here. I had probably the best pasta (with tomatoes, olives, capers chillies and basil) since I left Italy. The restaurant is small and the propriator does everything from cooking to front of house. Well worth a visit for excellent food at outstanding value.

I've being working in Sarajevo for a quite long time, always looking for a good place to lunch or dinner. When I discovered Caruso, I wanted never to eat elsewhere. After every meal I felt inspired and wanted to explore more. Thank you for that experience.

As a vegan in Bosnia, it was definitely hard to find a restaurant with more than one option. I can across Karuzo while searching online, and was already impressed by the big vegan menu! My mom and I did make a reservation online (which is necessary because the owner, Sasha, does all the cooking from scratch himself), but when we... More

Please read the reviews before you just show up to the restaurant. All of the people who have negative reviews and negative experiences don't follow Sasha's one rule: make a reservation rather than just showing up and expecting him to cook for you. If you respect that request from him, you will have a good experience. He cooks all of... More

On my last evening in Sarajevo, I googled "vegans restaurants in Sarajevo" and Karuzo came up. The reviews were excellent so I decided to book a table there. (You really have to book otherwise you may not be given a table) When I arrived, I was greeted warmly by Sasha, the owner and chef. He is a truly exceptional man... More

One of the greatest restaurant experiences ever. We booked in advance a table for our group of seven and spent an awesome evening with Saša and his delicious menu. A must if you are in Sarajevo and looking for fresh, innovative and tasty food in unique, intense atmosphere. Book in advance and get ready for a night to remember.
