A buddy took me here and we had a great dinner. Service was very attentive. The bread is terrific, house baked sliced and soaking in delicious olive oil. I had calamari appetizer - undoubtedly the best grilled calamari I have ever had. Unbelievably tender. I had the veal limone - wonderful! It came resting on top of some delicious asparagus... More

Have been here on three occasions in the past few months. Food and service have been exceptionally good and enjoyable. Worth making a booking if you want to eat here as it is very busy.

Four of us went to Carisma last Friday. My husband and I have an apartment near this restaurant and have been going there a few times a year and we usually enjoy the food. But last Friday was disappointing. The waiter was selling a veal rib stake very hard and he claimed it is delicious so I ordered it.He said... More

I have been to this restaurant three times, and every time I went, the food we ordered were delicious! It's not top of the notch food quality, and i have definitely tasted better dishes at many other restaurants, but the quality of the food is no doubt excellent! The atmosphere and the place itself is well decorated, and great for... More

We were seated in the back is a fairly quiet area adjacent to the bar so there was lots of interesting activity to watch around the bar. Mains were veal chop and veal osso bucco. Both were very good with nice tasty sides. I would say we have had better examples of each but still very good. Excellent wine recommendation... More

Service was excellent. Food was very good, but not great. Veal chop was good, but a little tough. Wine list was not outrageous, but a little over priced. Would return.

Some of the best food and customer service that we've experienced! Amadeo, our waiter was attentive and made the experience that much better! The food, the ambiance and portion sizes were excellent as was the wine selection. Overall, we were very impressed.

we were 5 for dinner and as expected the service was impecable, how ever we had all read some of the reviews on this restaurant and were maybe over-expectant about the food quality ? It was good food, but it was a liittle short of what we had read about. The portions a little small, the wine very over priced.... More
