Mooresville, N.C. — A North Carolina restaurant is receiving both praise and criticism after it banned children age 5 and younger from dining there.
Caruso's, an upscale Italian restaurant in Mooresville, banned the children after the owner said there were too many incidents of young kids crying, screaming and misbehaving, according to NBC affiliate WCNC.
According to the Charlotte station, the owner said the incidents with young children disrupted the restaurant's atmosphere, but some parents criticized the restaurant after being denied service.
