“Don't judge until you go inside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

From the street this restaurant does not look like much, but give it a try and go in - you won't regret it. Make reservations if going Friday or Saturday night. They have very awesome food. My favorite is the pollo involotini (chicken stuffed with ham, asiago and fontina cheeses, wrapped in bacon, baked and served with a butter sage sauce... Yum!). They also have good martinis - not cheap, about $12 each - but the are huge. One of my favorite restaurants in Mooresville.

“NYC quality cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Lived in New York for 60 yrs. and dined in many good restaraunts. Been to carusos on numerous occasions and a lot of other restaraunts in Mooresville and surrounding area. No comparison out there to carusos!! They should teach the others how to cook good Italian food. Carusos is the real deal.never disappointed

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Excellent Italian food and great service. Don't let the low key appearance from the outside fool you. Extremely nice inside with some of the best Italian food I have had in a restaurant. We tried multiple entrees while there from basic pasta to seafood. You can't go wrong. I would recommend making a reservation, especially on the weekends. Turns out the General Manager Brian is from the same area in New York as me. Thanks for taking care of us Brian!

“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This, by far, is the best Italian food in this area and even the surrounding area. I moved here 7 years ago from a town where I lived for 47 years known for it's supreb authentic Itialian food and I ate at all of them many times, so you could say I know good Italian qusine when I get it. This is the real deal, not Olive Garden. Don't be fooled by the looks of the place when you pull up in front, it's one of the best kept secrets in Mooresville!

“AuthenticItalian in Mooresville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Good authentic northern italian food that lets you taste different flavors than the usual italian restaurant chain type dishes. If you have been to Italy with soft laid back atmosphere, than you will feel it here. If you haven't been to Italy than it will give you alittle hint of how Italy's restaurants are different from here. Try the Safron Risotto with Seafood. Buono!
