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 have now eaten here three three times in the last year. Easily the best restaurant in Fairfield! Great service, excellent food. My husbands favorites are the Sea Bass dinner or the Chicken Marsala. I loved the chicken fettuccini Alfredo and the fried ravioli appetizer.

    Food ingredients of good quality but entrees still far from great. Soup was cold and salty. Pizza was also cold, soggy and tasteless (really sad). Gnocchi over cooked although sauce was great.

    Gosh - the food is so good and fresh. We had the Marsala, pepe caccia, and sea bass. The warm bread is so fresh. Two friends joined me and drove over 30 minutes for dinner. The drive was well worth the amazing food and service. Cant wait to be there on a day without rain to sit outside.

    We had never eaten here before and chose it because we were able to make a reservation outside. What a great find! The pasta is fresh and some of the best we have had in Cincinnati. The papardalle mushroom ragu was fantastic. We will be going back to try more of the menu. The wait staff were great.

    We arrived and were seated on the patio. Within seconds, Leanna came with homemade bread and butter. She always greets us like we are old friends. Megan was our server, who was wonderful (prompt, attentive and always had a smile). She always remembers our favorite drink. We tried the Shishito Peppers - they were great. Our meal was fantastic (Bob's Chicken Parm and Rigatoni Rustica, with a Caesar salad). Wednesday is 1/2 prices wine night, so we had great Pinot from Willamette valley. We were sitting next to a first time diner, who was raving about how great the food was. She is planning to tell all of her co-workers about this gem of a find.

    WOW! Caruso's always delivers. We brought a friend from Columbus, who was tired of hearing about all the great meals we have and he wanted to try it out. His words... "wow, this was amazing"! He had the Rustica and literally sopped up the entire plate with a piece of bread to get every bite of yumminess. The plate was CLEAN! Service by Megan and the team was outstanding. We sat outside and enjoyed the great weather. Thank you for the wonderful experience for our friend. He will be telling all of his friends!

    Our waitress was exceptional! The food was really tasty. I had the linguini scampi and for the price I would have thought you'd get more than 3 shrimp. My husband had the Branzino. He, too, enjoyed his meal but also felt the portion of fish was small for the $31 price.

    Mother's Day booth with three people. Incredible food with deep flavors it's rich and creamy yet very light. It's my second time at this restaurant & I will continue to visit. SO GOOD! We had apps, two rounds of drinks, three entrees and three desserts for $175 (not including tip.) Worth every bite!
