When we go out for lunch or dinner we usually go here. They make the best chicken parm subs. The only thing Is I wish they had a bigger parking lot. They do have a nice drive through.

Best Italian, pizza, sub place in Willow Street. Much nicer place since they moved across the street. Italian dinners are very good

Willow Street's local answer to the Olive Garden Chain Franchises. Less expensive and the food is just as good. No waiting and no hassle. Menu may be more limited, but the offer, they do well. Nice place that gets you away from the route 30 outlet frenzy.

Although Caruso's has been a mainstay in Willow Street for several decades, their new restaurant is a far cry from the basic take out eatery for cheese steaks and pizza. The dining area was well planned and inviting and the service is excellent. The manager, who has also been there for twenty + years, is as friendly and pleasant as... More

This apparently is a chain but each restaurant is locally owned and operated. The restaurant was spotless and had an attractive modern decor. We were seated right away and a waiter got our drinks immediately. They have an extensive menu but the real surprise was the specials. Our waiter was very thorough in describing them and which types of pasta... More

This is a great place to grab a bite to eat. We got there at 4pm on a Thursday and it was not too busy. We had a great server, Chuck, and he was outstanding. I suggest you ask for him if you dine here. Food was great, we got the 2 specials of the day, the lasagna and chicken... More

PROS Very good food (lasagna was great). Friendly, knowledgeable staff, and clean facilities. CONS Booths are too close together and parking is limited.

This was our first visit to Caruso's in Willow Street although we are fairly frequent visitors to others Caruso's sites. The décor of this restaurant is warm and modern. Our table had hundreds of copper pennies displayed in rows and sealed in place with clear acrylic. Very clever and nice! The service was sub-par as we dealt with multiple servers,... More
