My wife and I decided to return to Capitola for our 8th anniversary on November 17, 2015. We had eaten at Caruso's several years before and really enjoyed it. They don't take reservations, so we called and Augusto, the owner said if we came early,...More

Didn't have a reservation but were seated straight away. Service was knowledgeable and helpful Nice wine choices but what appeared to be limited stock. Brave attempt at a pollo saltimboca but the Veal scallopini was substituted by lamb which really didn't work. Worth another visit...More

My husband is Italian and it takes a pretty fantastic meal to impress this Italian---and Caruso's delivered. He ordered the lasagna based on the recommendation of our server (outstanding service BTW). The serving is really generous and the cook makes his own noodles and sauce--and...More

Second time here. The food was excellent! Only complaint was they were out of the only chardonnay on the wine list (we had seafood pasta) and the server told us they had another bottle for "a little bit more". We orderred it and it was...More

Great Italian. We've been before and keep going back. Excellent service. It's small, so get there early!

I went for dinner on a week-day night in mid-June. I was on a brief visit to Capitola Village and didn’t have a lot of time because the shops were closing. I was really hungry, so I checked on Yelp and Tripadvisor for some suggestions....More
