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

My husband and I were in Toronto for the weekend and tried this restaurant. WOW, the food was wonderful, and the staff were great. We will definitely be going back on our next trip to Toronto.

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

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
