    Was a busy night due to St Kilda festival. Seem under staff on the floor. However waiter was friendly & efficient. Ordered a pizza, one pasta dish, eggplant chips & red wine. Overall food was good.

    I loved the quaint atmosphere and the service was friendly and OK but my gnocchi was pretty tasteless and average. The drinks were slow to come out too. The Tiramasu was nice. I will go back but I will order pizza because they looked amazing. ????

    A new favourite. I’ve been twice this week! Really good authentic pizza, generous amount of add-on prosciutto. The Gorgonzola gnocchi is a must-try if you like blue cheese. We also had the chocolate calzoncini and loved it! The kids meal was a very generous serve and our bub nearly ate it all! We will be back.

    Gnocchi and pizzas are beyond delicious! Left very full, but the Nutella pizza is a must!

    Pizza was amazing we really enjoyed it we had the capricosa. Only issue we had was the table was a bit squashy with 4 of us and all the food. The waitress tried to assist and was quick to remove plates once they were finished but would recommend for a party of 4 getting a table that seats 6.

    There pizza was lovely but the seafood marinara was tasteless. Very bland. Pity as it has so much potential.

    Sweet little restaurant with a beautiful ambiance. Food was served promptly. The quality of meals - we had pasta, pizza and salad, was excellent. The perfect venue for a pre-dinner meal.

    We only had pizza. Lovely base. Light on toppings & was a bit soggy. Only one waitress for whole restaurant but it was relatively quiet so it was ok.

    Has always been a non-pretentious white tablecloth restaurant and service was with a smile. Food was tasty but two little things to note: 1. Although pizza is if a high standard the centre was a little soggy, with toppings falling off when a slice was lifted off the plate. 2. Gnocchi ragu was tasty too, with gnocchi's soft as pillows. However, the meat was a bolognese not a ragu and the mince meat looked exactly the same as the little girl's spaghetti bolognese next to me. I would definitely return as good is tasty and ambience relaxed.

    We have been coming for years but I thought the dough was too doughy this time. Good food and excellent cocktails

    I Carusi II never disappoints. Great food (their pizzas.... Bellissimo!), great service, non-pretentious rustic atmosphere; what’s not to love?

    We were there pre theatre. Had to get up to find a waitress so that we could give our order. Meal serve was small (gnocchi) but delicious. However when we said we’re going to the theatre our meal appeared quickly.

About the restaurant

For Pizza Perfectionists There’s pizza, and then there’s pizza. You know, the kind of memorable, can’t-get-enough pizza that transports you with just one bite. Pizza that is simple, yet at the same time, it’s just right. That’s the kind of pizza that is the hallmark of I Carusi II in St Kilda. With a thin, crispy crust the pizza here is a meal you’ll come back for time after time. And why not bring a date? With its romantic atmosphere, you’ll be daydreaming about Italy with every bite. If you can score a table by the window, even better. Just pretend the Barkly Street traffic is the whirl of Vespas scooting by. Of course there’s more than pizza to please the palate here while revelling in the warm ambience. Check out the antipasto plates, which include a vegetarian option. Authentic food and wine, an intimate atmosphere and friendly service—why not become a regular? Best Dish: Margherita pizza
