I have been here twice now with my family and you can't beat the portions, the atmosphere or the service. Kari was an awesome server -- and we enjoyed every bit of the yummy food. We had mozzarella sticks, salads, pizza, chicken parm and it was ALL great!

We came here with a group and mainly ordered pizzas and brought a cooler of beers for the adults and ordered pitchers of soda for the kids. Everyone was happy and not ordering adult drinks really saved us some money. We will eat here again when we visit at the end of September.

Were local, and this Caruso's is one of our favorite places to eat. Haven't had anything bad here yet. Their pizza is amazing, and the cheesesteaks on the fresh baked bread are the best we've ever had! Don't hesitate to eat here; you won't regret it!!

Stopped in to refuel while at Spooky Nook for a tournament. Pasta before the big day! We were going to carry-out but thought it looked like a nice place to eat in. Great big portions of salad and bread were delivered first. Main courses were eaten and left overs made a whole meal the next day. Portions are BIG! We... More

We enjoy eating in or take out. Our favorite is the ham and cheese sub, warmed. When you do take out, they will give you a time. Most of the time it is ready when we get there.

This is a great local pizza joint. They have yummy subs on pizza rolls. Always tastes fresh. The dining room doesn't seem used often-more takeout, and the staff isn't overly helpful. Better for takeout.

Get the small, it's huge! Doesn't usually look like much when driving by, but the people are great, hard working and they have great crusts/breads in all their boli's/pizzas, etc.
