Wine list is interesting and deserves a good read. Many little treasures but dont worry a very friendly server will guide you to the best wine for you. Then comes time to choose your food from the menu and the day's specials ... Wow such selections. I went for the tuna tartare (best i have ever ate) and the taglioni... More

The place was dimly lit and almost smokey when we arrived about 10 minutes late for our 8:45 reservation on a late summer Friday night. We we quickly shown to our small 2 top table near the bar. The waiter and other staff members all spoke with a thick Italian accent that we almost thought it was caricature. It wasn't.... More

I was staying at the hotel next door and was sent here by the concierge, who promised I would not be disappointed. It was a business dinner, with a colleague who's just as demanding when it comes to food as I am. The fact this colleague is Italian made me a little nervous about going to an Italian restaurant, but... More

Went to Carisma on a Tuesday night based on concierge's suggestion. I had seen some of the reviews on this website prior to going to Toronto, and though it has gotten some fantastic reviews (and is in the top 20!) I just wasn't that impressed and had written it off. The concierge at our hotel, just a couple of blocks... More

My children and I were in Toronto for a quick visit, and stumbled onto this gem of a restaurant. And we had one of our best meals in a while. I'm sure I can't do the food justice, but we knew were were off to a great start when the home made bread showed up (with rosemary, olive oil and... More

I must say I was disappointed with the overall experience. It is an attractive venue just one block from King and Yonge so a great location. The venue itself is attractive and well appointed. Menu and wine list very good and attentive staff. So why the 'average' review. First the service was a bit rushed. I hate having my first... More
