Although Caruso's has been a mainstay in Willow Street for several decades, their new restaurant is a far cry from the basic take out eatery for cheese steaks and pizza. The dining area was well planned and inviting and the service is excellent. The manager, who has also been there for twenty + years, is as friendly and pleasant as... More

This apparently is a chain but each restaurant is locally owned and operated. The restaurant was spotless and had an attractive modern decor. We were seated right away and a waiter got our drinks immediately. They have an extensive menu but the real surprise was the specials. Our waiter was very thorough in describing them and which types of pasta... More

This is a great place to grab a bite to eat. We got there at 4pm on a Thursday and it was not too busy. We had a great server, Chuck, and he was outstanding. I suggest you ask for him if you dine here. Food was great, we got the 2 specials of the day, the lasagna and chicken... More

This was our first visit to Caruso's in Willow Street although we are fairly frequent visitors to others Caruso's sites. The décor of this restaurant is warm and modern. Our table had hundreds of copper pennies displayed in rows and sealed in place with clear acrylic. Very clever and nice! The service was sub-par as we dealt with multiple servers,... More

Salad was good, bread was not, eggplant parm was good, chicken Francese not so good. They let you put your bottle of wine on the wall, wonder if it will be there when we come back next yr.

Waitress was very friendly and attentive as was the rest of the staff. Coming from the NewYork area and of Italian heritage I can say the pasta dish was great. Sauce was delicious and the pasta was cooked perfect. My family had the pesto, bolognese and the marinara all sauces were fresh and authentic . Bread was homemade and tasty... More
