“Best Restaurant in Reykjavik”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We ate at Caruso's three times during our recent trip to Reykjavik. So between the two of us we had six different meals and every one was outstanding. Also loved the ambiance of the dining room and the upstairs lounge area.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This restaurant seemed to be packed every night so we booked a table. The atmosphere was fantastic and the food was delicious.

If you stay away from steaks this can be a reasonably priced meal out in Iceland. We had garlic bread to start, Cannelonni and another pasta dish, two beers and 2 wines and the bill was around £50

Service was really quick but we were never pestered to get on with it !!

Great option on the main strip

“bad experience”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We had a bad experience in this restaurant maybe just unlucky, we went in at 8.30 and had not had starters by 9.50, after complaining they arrived almost immediately!! Then the wrong meal was served for the main course, the young waiter was very apologetic and the food was good, but it spoiled our night. We complained and received a bottle of house wine. Maybe a week night would be better as restaurant was very busy.

“OK”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is clearly a great restaurant for couples, but not for children. We ate there with our 11 month old and felt uncomfortable throughout. (constantly worried about breaking glasses, knocking candles onto the floor etc)The actual food was amazing though, and if we're in Reykjavik again without children, this'll be the place to go!

“A very charming restaurant!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We loved the ambiance. Don't miss the bar that is upstairs. We waited there while our table was being set, and it was so quaint (in a good way). The food was quite good, not spectacular, but we had an enjoyable evening.
