We have been going here for years. It's ALWAYS great. From the pizza to the specialty dishes, it is never a "miss". Richard is a delightful host. I have a Service Dog and there was never any problem with ADA accommodations. Eat here. You won't be sorry!

The atmosphere was very family style. The food was deliciously prepared and the homemade bread is beyond words. This is a must "eat at" place.

Just totally great food; I had chicken that was cooked perfectly with a cream sauce that still makes my mouth water.
Can't wait to go back for seconds.

After eating mostly fast food on vacation in Monterey, our kids were jonesing for some noodles, so we ended up at Caruso's. The kids' cheese ravioli and kids' spaghetti were quickly devoured (though the spaghetti portion was huge). My husband enjoyed his fancy hamburger, the only one on the menu. I tried the seafood alfredo and was a little disappointed... the seafood was especially "fishy" and a little chewy, and the sauce seemed extra watered-down. Our dishes were pricey for something so disappointing. There was only one other family in Caruso's while we were there, and they complained to the waiter that the table was dirty. We weren't impressed with the atmosphere.

This little joint is a pleasant surprise. Its attached to a divey looking hotel, and needs a better more classy sign- but its actually good food and service. Full bar- which I didn't expect.

We got the Greek salad, large sized fresh and plenty of feta. Chicken Parm is great here. Portions are huge, easily enough for leftovers. Other pasta dishes are good here too. Classic Italian food.

They just really need to improve the inside and make it a little more romantic. Vinyl table cloths are never a good look. Get some better linens, clean up the place and space out the tables a bit so that it doesn't feel cramped despite not all the tables being filled. Throw up some more christmas lights- and they will do a lot better. And, get a better beer selection. When we were there they had one bottled beer, and two lousy beers on draft.
