Caruso’s is a rebirth of a restaurant that was created by Rakan Shteiwi in the 1979. Many of the original Spinning Fork recipes came from the original Caruso’s which was located in downtown Cincinnati. We look to merge classic and modern flavors inspired by traditional Italian and American Italian cuisines.

    Food was great from the bread, soup and salad to the entrees (lasagna for me and chicken parm for my wife), and, as my mother would have loved, it was hot! Our server, Sam, was not only fully informed on the menu, but was attentive to our needs. All told, a really wonderful experience.

    Nice place. Good menu - lots of options. The pasta was very good - spaghetti and meatballs and fettuccini alfredo were great. Wine list is short but good. Servie from all of the staff was great. Would go back again.

    Fantastic. Everything on the menu is house made and you can tell. Probably my only disappointment was no veal on the menu. But everything else was superlative. Wine list runs from reasonable to expensive. The house wine was absolutely fine (if you’ve ever dined in Italy always order the house’s wine—it will not suck). Quite reasonably priced and wasn’t hard to get into. Our server was first rate. I had never been here and eat out quite often and will definitely be back.

    We hadn’t been here for a while but it was as good as we remembered. There was glitch in the service at first but all went well after that and they couldn’t have been more apologetic or gracious about it. Good for everyone in our party of 4 was excellent.

    I liked Caruso’s. Our server was the best. The food was great. Our only complaint (minor) — no veal or eggplant on the menu. I just assumed they were both staples at an Italian restaurant.
