If you live in Tucson and have not tried Caruso's you are missing a treasure!

If you live in Tucson and have not tried their Anti Pasta platter, you are missing out on a rare treat. What I didn't know until yesterday was that Caruso's has a secret menu.

I called to order two platters of their anti pasta for my guest offering at a superbowl party. The menu says that their biggest platter serves four. We know from eating there that it easily serves six so I figured I would order two. The person on the phone told me that they have a platter for twelve but it was not on the menu. I ordered it and blew everybodies socks off at the party. I think I will now be seeing this at most every family gathering.

Just a heads up. If you need a dish for a party, I got major points for this one.

Oh yeah, just so you know, it got devoured. The sauce is to die for!

1. Is that the restaurant down on 4th Ave?

Neve been there in the four decades (on and off) I've lived here. Maybe it's time!

2. Yup! It has been in Tucson forever. The prices are moderate, the atmosphere is moderate

The food is fantastique. This may be the best restraunt in Tucson.

3. So wonderful to see that Caruso's is still around!

When I lived in Tucson in the early to late 90's, I ate their frequently. I lived in a nice little neighborhood quite close to 4th Avenue. I always enjoyed the pasta fagioli soup and the spinach & cheese ravioli's with the wonderful white garlic & mushroom sauce.

I must admit to taking many a date to Caruso's to impress and woo them during those years.

4. Oh yes.

It is, forsooth, a gustatory treasure. There are a lot of really great restaurants on 4'th Ave, but this one is the best.
