Arizona’s Very First Italian Restaurant Has Literally Been Around Forever

We can all probably agree that time-honored recipes just taste better, and the oldest Italian restaurant in Arizona operated by a single family has plenty of ’em. Caruso’s has been delighting Tucson with its traditional cuisine since 1938, with no plans to stop any time soon. From bottomless garlic bread to fresh pasta made in-house to gigantic pizza pies, eating a meal here is like stepping into the rolling hills of Tuscany.
