Very classy Italian restaurant. Expensive but worth the white glove service. The food is great and the staff is very friendly

Forget the location, forget the children, and forget the lighting. This is an excellent restaurant deserving five stars. Allow the very professional staff to advise you on selections of wine as well as food. Ask questions! Our waiter had the least seniority (1 1/2 years) but enjoyed informing us of the many nuances of Caruso's selections. We ordered the octopus... More

Me and my husband and out or daughter decided to try this place out because of the reviews. They do not have a children's menu and when questioned about ingredients out waitress seemed annoyed. My drink remained empty over half of our visit. We will not be returning

Trip advisor continues to lead us to great experiences yes it is in a strip plaza but through the door you could be in New York City or Rome. Took the recommendations of our waiter Mike, split a wedge , Sea bass special was excellent, veal with mushrooms quite ample and delicious. Alert support staff. We are on our way... More

If you want outstanding Italian food, this is a WINNER. Much if not all the staff has been there for the long haul and they are pros. Order the "meat" appetizer which although I have lost the name of it, I will never forget the taste. The veal is divine and the creativity and skill in fish and chicken and... More

Freshly prepared Italian food. Octopus appetizer was outstanding. Expert service, comfortable atmosphere. Sea Bass outstanding, crisp polenta outside, flaky inside. Pastas also delicious.

We were staying in Carolina for a month and visited many towns and restaurants, Carusos by far was the most amazing dining experience we had ! It was so good we went back every week for the full 4 weeks we spent there. Dont let the exterior put you off. It is a taste of true Italian cuisine and coupled... More

Disregard the location and the interior and prepare for one of the best Italian meals of your life. The Avocado Ceviche and the Grilled Octopus would rival anything you would eat on the Mediterranean Coast. The crab cakes are as fresh and full flavored as any you will find on the Maryland shore. I had the Zuppa di Pesce with... More
