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.

    Absolutely wonderful food!! We had the Chicken Marsala with the risotto, roasted vegetables and Caesar salad. The carrot cake is the best in the area, moist and rich in flavor. We were pleased to see they were busy on a Sunday (early) evening.

    The chicken Marsala was excellent. The chicken was tender and the Marsala had a wonderful flavor. I loved that it was not breaded and fried. I subbed out the risotto for spaghetti squash, which made a great combination. My Aunt loved the salmon and said she would order it again. Our server was very pleasant and accommodating. We love to dine here on Wednesdays for half price wine night. Great value for a great meal!

    Our meal and experience fell short of expectations based off other reviews. The bread served to the table was delightful, but the pasta dishes (meatballs and spaghetti and the pappardelle mushroom) were small for the price of the dishes, which was close to $20 for each. For $20 I expect either a heaping serving or an accompaniment of a salad or soup with the meal. Overall and underwhelming experience. This was a one and done for us.

    First visit to Caruso’s following a recommendation. We were looking for Italian food and we found it! Both the spaghetti and meatballs and lasagna was excellent. My espresso martini was perfect. And I can’t forget the bread! Definitely will be bake - want to try the stone oven pizzas. Lastly, service was perfect!
