Took the recommendations of our waiter Mike, split a wedge , Sea bass special was excellent, veal with mushrooms quite ample and delicious. Alert support staff. We are on our way... More

If you want outstanding Italian food, this is a WINNER. Much if not all the staff has been there for the long haul and they are pros. Order the "meat" appetizer which although I have lost the name of it, I will never forget the taste. The veal is divine and the creativity and skill in fish and chicken and... More

We were staying in Carolina for a month and visited many towns and restaurants, Carusos by far was the most amazing dining experience we had ! It was so good we went back every week for the full 4 weeks we spent there. Dont let the exterior put you off. It is a taste of true Italian cuisine and coupled... More

Disregard the location and the interior and prepare for one of the best Italian meals of your life. The Avocado Ceviche and the Grilled Octopus would rival anything you would eat on the Mediterranean Coast. The crab cakes are as fresh and full flavored as any you will find on the Maryland shore. I had the Zuppa di Pesce with... More

Great variety on the menu. Friendly and helpful staff. I had the osso buco and it was delicious. My husband had the sole Caruso and raved about it. Crab cakes were above average and the tiramisu was outstanding. We will definitely return!

Tucked away in a strip mall, this wonderful Italian restaurant has pasta, fish, great desserts and more. Homemade paparadelle with shrimp, broccoli and cream sauce was rich and filling. Their signature Chilean Sea Bass is a must! Oh, and the stuffed mushroom appetizer had such good sauce, we were sopping it up with our bread. Dessert was creamy, creamy, yummy... More

Went with friends and was excited to try. I had heard it was fabulous and I needed to make a reservation. It is super dark and the tables are super close together. The food was ok but I have not rushed back. Once was enough for me!
