The chees bread as the appetizer was sooooooo good, I thought it was a little pricy, but after tasting, worth every penny, the spaghetti was extremely good even though it's not usually my first choice. My husband and I split the appetizer, spaghetti, and the...More

I was unsure what to expect from Caruso's corner being right on the main road and looking in need of an update, however, the food and the service were fantastic. The portions are huge and despite being one of the tastiest pasta dishes I've ever...More
