    Caruso's was started in the 1930s by Nicasio (Caruso) Zagona, and the restaurant has remained in the family since then. Tucson's original Caruso's was located about one block south of its present site. An August rain storm and flood literally washed the place away, so we moved to higher ground, where we've remained for the past seventy-five years or so. The restaurant interior layout, its patio, and most of its food preparation methods were developed by the senior Zagona, although inevitably some changes have been made throughout the years. We now have more efficient equipment, of course, but the techniques for making our pasta (for ravioli, lasagna, manicotti, and cannelloni) and our homemade sauces are basically the same. The heart of the place is the "big copper pot," visible from the main dining room. This pot has contained all the Caruso sauce served since our first days in Tucson. We trust that you will find the sauce from this pot and everything else at Caruso's as good as it was when served by the master chef, "Caruso" himself.

    That beautiful oven was hand crafted & built by Stefano Ferrara, a third generation Naples wood-firedoven builder. It was shipped over from Italy and fork-lifted through the arched west facing window, the only way in our small space. We burn pecan wood only, no gas, coal or electricity, and keep thetemperature around 700 degrees, cooking pizzas in about 2-3 minutes. This yields a flavor and intentional char to the crust that is complex and delicious.

    Chef ‘Scotty’ first started cooking in commercial kitchens in 1965. Over the years he has studied Italian, French, and American cuisine under several world renowned chefs. He has owned and operated four of his own restaurants including a 4-star Italian restaurant and two World Pasta Houses. His creation of original sauces and ‘fusion’ dishes, as well as his critical acclaim, has earned him the nickname, ‘Mr. Pasta’ and made his name and distinct food recognizable through much of Southern Arizona and the Southwest where he lives.

    A competitor in the Iron Chef competition, his unique Southwest Spice, a mix/rub, which he created over twenty years ago, is a hallmark of taste for many of his original dishes. Its ability to"‘wake up’ and enhance flavor is now available for the first time through the pages of to you for use in your own great dishes at home. A few sprinkles and your dish will make your taste buds come alive. Try Southwest Spice just once and you’ll want it as a regular component for your spice rack.

    Our Food - All Natural - Pesticide Free - No Salt or Sugar
    The ingredients we use at Lasagna and More to make our products are hand picked by Chef Scotty.
    The ground sirloin and Italian sweet sausage, with a hint of fennel, that the Chef selects comes from a family owned local butcher, Dickman’s Meats. They are all natural, free range grass and corn fed, and ground fresh just for Lasagna and More. No salt or processed sugar is added to our products.
    The vegetables Chef Scotty uses are organic and/or pesticide free. Our cheeses, pastas, herbs, and spices are the highest quality.

    Chef Scotty’s own recipes for Marinara and other sauces call for the exclusive use of San Marzano tomatoes and a little known but fantastic tomato, grown locally at the organic and pesticide free Markley Farms. The chef and his staff blend these local/regional ingredients by hand before they package your meals and then freeze them immediately to lock in freshness.
