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.

    We dined here last night for celebration of my birthday and the experience was amazing, from the hostess, to the server to the chef. Our server, Victoria, was astoundingly attentive and informative for our selections. The food was impeccable! The chef came out and introduced himself and the dessert he made just for me. It was delicious. Thank you for making a huge impression and my birthday memorable with my family.

    Although menu is a little limited the food is excellent! It would be nice if entrees could be more inclusive of sides due to the higher prices. Will definitely make this our go to place.

    I had a lovely birthday dinner at Caruso's. They were very busy and only welcoming guests who had reservations. I'm glad to see them doing so well. The decor has been updated some since they took it over from a previous owner, but we were in the least "pretty" section. The food is all house-made and you can tell - it was delicious! You must try the tiramisu!

    A gem in Hamilton area! Food was really pretty darn close to 5 star. Setting not nearly as noisy as most venues and staff great. Expand the wine list ( lots of good values out there). A little pricey for frequent visit but we will be back.

    We had reservations and still had to wait 20 minutes. The server took a while to get to us. Food was ok. 1 out of 5 meals were good. Salads were swimming in dressing and that is not a good thing. The server never checked back until we were finished. We were finished for at least 10 mins till he checked back with us. It was my wife's birthday and it was a bummer.

    Our service was excellent. While the restaurant filled up pretty quickly, the server checked back with us often to see if we needed anything else. He also answered our questions and explained a couple of the dishes. The restaurant was quiet so that we could enjoy our conversation and the food was excellent. I would definitely go back again.

    Always the most delicious food ever. The mushroom ragu is mouthwatering, and we can’t seem to NOT get the tiramisu, no matter how full we are from our meal. They also have the largest ceasar side salad with an outstanding dressing. My favorite place for date night, delectable food, and yummy wine!

    My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Caruso’s! When you look at the menu, you may think it’s just a traditional Italian restaurant. However, it’s anything but, because of their unique takes on traditional Italian cuisine! Our waiter, Sam, was great and made our experience even more enjoyable!

    Went there to celebrate a birthday, walked in and the hostess wish us a happy birthday when she pulled up the reservation. Sat down ordered our food and had a good meal while we was there. There was no mention about the birthday by anyone in there, while I was not expecting them to come out and sing or anything like that. But the couple sitting behind us was there celebrating an anniversary, The manager came over at least 3 times to wish them a happy anniversary and also brought out a dessert for them at the end of their meal. Like I said I was not expecting anyone to come out and sing happy birthday but it was really obvious he was more concerned the couple behind us had a better time than we did. The only thing the manager came to our table for was to tell us how she had ordered one of his favorite meals off the menu and how our waiter was the one that added the blackened chicken to the menu and we could add that at extra cost. He was right the meal was better with the chicken, and the waiter was nice enough to tell us his story as well. But was disappointed to have to listen to the couple behind us constantly getting checked on while we was also there for an occasion that was even asked about when we made the reservations. Why bother asking if you don't seem to care
