Have been eating here for two years now. Mostly take away but have dined in a few times. Their pizzas rank in my top 3 for Melbourne. Simple, good tomato sauce, tasty cheese, not too oily and prepared quickly. The dine in experience is relaxed and has a simply elegance to it.

Went to I Carusi earlier this year and forgot to review. We had pizzas, and they were fabulous! As we had a dog with us we were sitting outside, not the coziest as it is just next to the street. Very friendly and attentive staff, excellent food! Will definitely be back.

Excellent food and great staff. The pizza was fantastic. You can say that it was made with fresh ingredients. The desert was divine!!! Great environment but the tables are really close to each other. Maybe if they were a bit less closer it would be better.

A perfect, easy pizzeria on Holmes St ( right on tram lines 1 or 8 ). Do not pass on the olives with chilli as a starter....A highlight for me. Quattro Fromagio pizza was good but not a stand out. Ordered the Panna Cotta again but not quite up to it's stellar quality. Definitely worth a visit. Book table abd... More

Nice, cozy small local pizzeria. Serves great pizza a little on pricey end. Great location for a romantic dinner. Used to be the best but still up there if you want a romantic night out.

First time visit for dinner with friends. Quiet and friendly ambience with an Italian theme. Wide variety of pizzas - we shared the Speciale and a leek and Gorgonzola pizza. Light pastry and tons of taste. But the highlight of the night was the Specials Board 4 carne Lasagne (4 meats lasagne). This was as close as it comes to... More

Went here for dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pizza. Great Gluten Free pizza base and toppings were great. Service was not very friendly, the food is great but the service could do with a some 'uplift' Overall a great place for a good pizza Don't forget to bring Cash as they don't accept Cards

Hmm, after reading the reviews about friendly service, we thought the waitress with the sour face and rude attitude, must have had a lousy Christmas. We enjoyed the Pizza which were delicious, just not the rude waitress!!

Terrible service. We ordered 2 gluten free pizza's by delivery and received one pizza that was right and one that was wrong, after taking one bite of the pizza and not realising I have already had a reaction to the gluten. We called and asked for the pizza we ordered to be re-delivered and the person on the phone told... More
