Caramba! Restaurante Restaurant Review: Owner Mario Enero has the ability to wow even those on a modest budget. The fun, boisterous, Mediterranean-influenced Caramba! offers a refreshing alternative to fans seeking good food and quick service in an informal atmosphere. The high-energy staff deals out big, soul-satisfying portions of down-home pasta, pizza and roasts. Start with the savory baked goat cheese served with a tomato coulis and garlic toast points. Then delve into the fettuccine Natasha, accented with chunks of fresh salmon and a peppery vodka-and-tomato cream sauce. Munch on a melanzana pizza heaped with roasted eggplant, roma tomatoes, and goat cheese. Or try the grilled baby trout with bacon-and-onion mashed potatoes. The open kitchen, earthy hues, and alderwood-burning pizza ovens lend a warm feel to the room. Drinks are reasonably priced as well. Prefer a night in? They’ll whip up a take-out meal in 15 minutes.
