One of the best Italian restaurants in the city. By far the best service in the city. This restaurant never disappoints.

Absolutely terrific restaurant. The food is genuine Italian of the highest quality accompanied by a fantastic wine list to choose from. I always love coming here and cannot speak highly enough of the quality. Carisma is unequivocally the best Italian restaurant in Toronto.

Celebrated Valentine's early with my partner here on a saturday night. Our server Debby was very friendly and attentive and all the staff treated us very well. The food was very good and the highlight was the nutella creme brulee. I would definitely go back. It's an expensive restaurant so maybe for another special occaision!

We are always greeted as friends! Our dining experience here is second to none for us in Toronto! Adriano makes sure we have a great bottle of wine and the best of the food ! The veal liver was outstanding, perfect cut, no sinews, cooked perfectly. Always our best night out when in TO!

Staff very attentive. We had a private, cozy table at the back. The atmosphere is lively/fun maybe due to the fact that it was full and there was a very large group near us. The appetizers were a little underwhelming, just average but good. Mains, we had 3 different pastas they were all very good, not sure if they make the pasta fresh at the restaurant, I forgot to ask. We had wine by the glass, very pricey, we didn't want a bottle because we were going somewhere after but the bottles were really expensive too, I would say more costly then a fine dining restaurant.

What a pleasant surprise. The food was sublime. The service was jovial, entertaining and oh so professional. The waiters take great pride in what they do. None of the usual “ I just am doing this until I find what I want to do” My wife and I will go back again for sure.
