My husband and I loved this place. The pizza we shared as an appetizer reminded us of pizza we had in Florence. Our main course, chicken saltimbocca, was delicious. Service great. We will definitely come back.

Very friendly and attentive servers and very nice decor. Starters and mains were fresh and tasty with a good bottle of valpolicella to compliment the meal. Good ambiance to enjoy a family dinner.

We stumbled upon Caruso's on a side street in Capitola. Had several locals inside and every person in it was raving about the food. Funny thing is, it was the chef's night off so they had a more restricted menu. Food was wonderful, woman running...More
