Caragiulo’s Italian Restaurant
Old world, family styled, Italian restaurant at the center of Palm Ave…that’s Caragiulos!
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Caragiulos is a classic “old school” Italian restaurant located at 69 South Palm Ave. And when we say “old school” Italian, we mean it in the most positive sense of the word…family built, owned and operated, casual, comfort food. A true old world Italian family dining experience with something for everyone!
We always look forward to eating at Caragiulos and our most recent visit with friends was no exception. We had the following:
Spaghetti and Meatballs: with home made meat balls $14.00; a classic dish served with 2 meatballs, we asked for a 3rd but it was forgotten
Chicken Parmiagana: with mozzarella & pasta marinara $18.00; nicely breaded, cheesy, and well sauced tender chicken served with a side of pasta
Stripped Bass: one of the specials, served with broccoli rabe, mushrooms, in a light broth $22.00
The generous apportioned meals were accompanied by fresh baked bread (ours was forgotten) and a fresh, crisp, garden salad dressed with red wine vinaigrette and served family style. Full bar service is available with a beer and wine list designed to complement the meal.
Indoor and outdoor dining, an extensive menu of well prepared traditional Italian dishes, large portions, reasonably priced, served in a casual, comfortable “feel right at home” type of setting; that is Caragiulos! What more can you ask?

If you prefer to bring your own bottle of wine to accompany your dinner, Caragiulos will accommodate you with a $10 corkage fee. This service is a great way to save some money and share a special bottle or 2 with friends over a great meal.
In addition, Caragiulos offfers patrons, the Hearing Loop — a device that allows those who are hearing impaired to hear much better at noisy places like restaurants.
