After reading the reviews I decided to come over here for lunch. This place is very close to the office I have been going to in Toronto. I went for lunch and it was surprised with the amount of people actually dining in there. The place is chic, you are welcomed by truly italian employees where you literally begin your... More

We had lunch with friends earlier this week and had a fabulous meal. There were 5 of us and each had something different and everyone raved about the food and the wine selection. This is a new location for the restaurant, but same owners and same quality of food. Highly recommended.

Visited on Monday evening and found it excellent. I guess anytime you spend 2 1/2 hours enjoying a meal, you know it was excellent. We were welcomed and offered a nice big table for the 4 of us. Waiters were very attentive without being in your face. Food was excellent; perfect portions, great choices and great flavours. Wine selection was... More

For our last night in Toronto, we decided to dine at Carisma. Not only was it literally 2 doors down from the "King Eddy" hotel, where we stayed, but 3 different people had recommended this restaurant to us since we had been in Toronto. I am so happy we listened to them, as this was one of our favorite dinners... More

I had suggested this Restaurant to my Executive Director for a business lunch in April 2014, he loved it and was very impressed by the food and the service. I was happy he was. When we were organizing a Board Meeting Dinner, he asked me to book again in this lovely restaurant as he was sure everyone will like it.... More

A friend and I were at an event nearby and were looking for a place to have dinner when we 'stumbled upon' Carisma. It definitely lives up to it's name! The Risotto al Porcini was divine and the home made bread melted in my mouth! The wait staff were both charming and attentive. I would definitely dine here again!

We went to Carisma this past weekend to celebrate my Sister's birthday. I was very impressed with the service and the quality of the food. The wait staff could not have been more attentive. We were never wanting for bread or refills of our wine. It was the perfect balance of attention without being intrusive. The food was delivered to... More
