Driving to Lake Norman we found ourselves to be very hungry & happened upon Caruso's. Boy are we glad to give it a try. The ambience was very nice but still casual. The service was friendly & attentive.
Nice wine list and full bar. Shared the stuffed mushroom appetizer - yum. My friend and I each had salads which were lovely. Our entrees were delish. I had a pasta dish & my friend had the special (salmon with crab meat). It was all excellent. Very fresh tasting and reasonably priced.
Read on line that someone wouldn't give this delight extra stars because of it's location in a strip mall. They were very foolish - once inside I thought I was in an Italian restaurant in NJ. And that's quite a compliment from me!
