After an afternoon in the St. Kilda Botanical Gardens it was just a short stroll to this friendly, buzzing authentic Italian restaurant. The service was fast and slick, the house wine quaffable and the pizza the best I have ever had.

If you like thin crust, a minimum of ingredients and perfect cooking time to ensure maximum flavour then this is the place. Service can be a bit haphazard but what the hey.

I would happily travel from a place far, far away for this pizza. You just gotta have the I Carusi pizza.

Very disappointing night here last night. Pizzas were good but the service was average at best. They could have made a lot more money had they asked us if we wanted more drinks. The knives are like trying to cut something with a spoon. I...More

Love the ambience here and the pizza's are traditional and delicious, it all about the flavour in the base and sauce. Excellent service.
