This was our first visit, and both the food and service were top notch. We will be getting take out to satisfy our cravings until we can enjoy their great atmosphere and service again with indoor dinning again.

Husband loved the Omar pizza, and I thoroughly enjoy my Carbonara. The chocolate gelato is made with Lindt chocolate and is so creamy.

Food was sub-par, my pizza came out w cheddar cheese on it.Small portion of salad and the pasta was undercooked and dry.Ran out of house wine and charged me for a very expensive glass of wine.Service was great regardless of the food.

We had a great time celebrating a birthday at Caro. Our pizza was so delicious and the employees were lovely. We aren’t from Hamilton but would definitely make the drive to visit again.

We went out for a date after 6 months of the pandemic and had a lovely time! Felt safe as the tables were pretty far apart. The drinks, apps and mains were delicious! We also ordered the tiramisu which was yummy! Definitely coming back again for the beyond meat sausage pizza :)

Service was terrific. Friendly and helpful, yet unobtrusive. Food was excellent. Creative options for drinks. Music was a bit loud for those of us with hearing challenges, but when we made request to have music turned down, staff responded promptly, and there were no further challenges. This is a gem. We’ll be going back.

The pasta was dry and felt extra starchy. The sauce was also not tasty. The pizzas were not cooked throughly. I was quite disappointed with the food.

Had the carbonara. Was a bit watery but still very flavourful. They were out of most of their alcohol (ciders and most wines) so that was a bit disappointing as well. My date’s food and cocktail was excellent.

Overall a very nice experience.
Food, service and value are well beyond average. Felt a bit rushed due to time limit due to current protocol BUT this is not the fault if the restaurant.
You won't be disappointed.
Definitely worthy of a return visit

It was our first time dining in Caro. The food was excellent and so were the drinks. Our server was very helpful and gracious and we were very appreciative especially during COVID. Thank you for such a great experience and for all the effort you’ve put in to keeping everyone safe during these times. We are happy you can be open! And we will definitely be back.

The table ahead of us was late leaving which meant we didn’t have as much time to dine. The staff was very apologetic and brought us drinks on the house to apologize. They also took a meal off the bill that wasn’t liked out of pure kindness. They were very friendly and the food was fabulous. We felt like all the Covid rules were being followed and we felt very safe. Overall it was a wonderful night with friends.
