My server was fantastic and I was enjoying myself until the main dish came. It arrived without promised spinach and then when i bit into the fish I immediately could tell it was not flounder. It was a white fish but that is as close as it got. It was some kind of farm raised mealy texture and was too... More

I stopped by around lunch time the other day and tried the upside down Sicilian pizza. It was delicious! Lots of garlic flavor. Not as thick as normal Sicilian.... Very crispy too. Loved it.

We generally go there after church for our weekly pizza fix. There are many choices for different slices, personally love the Hawaiian and the upside down pizza. My fiance just loves the white pizza. The waiters are always super friendly, and now they even get our drinks ready when we walk in. The slices are heated up super hot like... More

My husband is very picky about his weekly pizza and wings. We may have discount coupons for other franchise pizza places but he always wants this place. I don't mind I like it too!

The Italian food is very good here. It is a small place in a shopping center so not fancy, though they are trying. ALL employees are extremely nice, especially the owner who is there most nights. Very good informal place with great food.

Authentic Italian food served by friendly waiters. Great selection for such a small place! Only reason not to rate a 5 rating is the terribly small and cramped dining room. Each table is literally on top of the others and people waiting to eat or pick up takeout pizza watch you eat! Shame, because food is great!

I have been a fan of Caruso's for many years, but I have noticed a drop off in value lately. The Pizza is still good, but they have really cut back on the cheese and toppings on them. I'm not one who likes a ton of cheese on my pie, but I do like it to cover the middle portion... More

My go-to restaurant when in Middletown, Delaware. Tonight was my fave Penne ala Vodka. My sister had the stuffed shells. Dessert was a pastry of some sorts. Reasonably priced and pleasant staff make this "strip mall" eatery a standout.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years, even use their catering services, and have found them always friendly, easy to work with, accommodating with any changes you'd like with the menu. Excellent food and service.
