Had a lovely meal here for four of us, travelling with friends. Could only afford one bottle of wine though! Great service and great food, would certainly comeback again if we are in Iceland.

Had a great meal here. We walked in without a reservation. I had the Arctic Char which was excellent. Atmosphere was nice. Would go back.

We were very pleasantly surprised as the qualify of Caruso's food, as well as the ambiance of the restaurant despite its location on the main tourist shopping street. Quiet, dignified and not badly priced for Reykjavik!

Nice restaurant in a quaint setting in downtown Reykjavik. Nice Italian fare including good pizzas. Try the lasagna, the risottos are all good as well. Nice wine list goes with this very satisfying meal.
