Carisma Ratings and Reviews
Very good food, but a bit noisy and pricey. Still, I will go again.
Dinner was very good and service truly outstanding. The restaurant was extremely noisy and it was hard to have a conversation
The food was all right but somewhat overpriced for the quantity and quality
Excellent service and great food. Loud environment but that is part of the feel.
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.
Charming restaurant, good food and fantastic service - what’s not to love?! I’ll be back!
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!
Excellent selection of wines. Warm and inviting atmosphere. The service was entertaining, engaging and excellent.
The food is very good - simple, authentic and delicious.
Wonderful food, attentive and prompt service, cozy and romantic atmosphere. Our favourite Toronto restaurant.
This place is great. Truly Italian. Service is fantastic. I go here once a year when I come to time. Wouldn’t miss it.
Incredible food and service.
Wonderful food and staff
My very first Carisma experience is one I will NEVER forget!!! Everyone was so very welcoming!! It felt like family! Our server Debbie was OUTSTANDING!!! The food was out of this world and the wine was delicious!!! Thank you all so much. We are very much looking forward to coming back!!!
Another fantastic experience at Carisma. The staff is warm and welcoming, attentive, and knowledgeable. The food is delicious. The wine selection is extensive. I will continue to dine at Carisma for years to come.
Not worthy of its top Italian restaurant in Toronto. Food was average all the plates came with virtually the same sides.for what it cos I would do elsewhere
The best Italian food in the city
The best food and staff!!
Truffle pasta and beef tenderloin were amazing. Great cocktail list and the servers are super attentive. The atmosphere is perfect for a date night. This was our 3rd time there and we will definitely be back:)
Was here close to closing but had a great dinning with my other half, staffs are friendly and really down to earth, zero complains and will definitely come back!
Amazing food, excellent service... what more could a girl ask for?
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.
Always amazing food
Great food and service is impeccable.
On the expensive side, for the food you get but but great if u want amazing Italian food and ok with paying more for it.
The food was outstanding and the staff were lovely. Glad I came here to celebrate our special occasion.
Second time going to Carisma. The ambience is spectacular. Soft music in the background, you can actually make meaningful conversation with whomever you’re with. Romantic yet functional spot!
The service and staff were great!! Great wine recommendations 🍾
Our waiter was phenomenal!!
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.
Good food. Attentive service. Convenient location. Friendly atmosphere.
Another fantastic Carisma experience. I have had the pleasure of dining at Carisma four times and have never been disappointed. The food, service, atmosphere are always amazing. We enjoyed the Carisma salad and the pasta and clams. Both were excellent.
I absolutely love Carisma. It’s my favourite Italian restaurant in town. The service, the food, the ambiance are incomparable.
Considering it was our first time at Carisma, we didn’t know what to expect but were inevitably blown away by the food and service. Definitely the hot, new Italian spot in the city and well worth the drive. Make your reservations in advance and try to make it before the end of truffle season!
Carisma is always amazing. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and make you feel instantly welcome. It's a small place (vs. a big chain restaurant) so is much more intimate. The food was delicious as always - burrata, scallops, lamb, sea bass, monkfish and osso buco were all consumed - every last bite! I would recommend Carisma to anyone, anytime!
The pasta was fresh and the service was excellent. Overall a great meal and experience.
Amazing service, very friendly staff, very accommodating to children, great specials menu...highly recommend
Everything was excellent!
Amazing food and great service! I definitely would return to this place.
We have spent our time on New Years Eve at Carisma and it was amazing at every point! Great food, great service and very personal!
The waitress got our apetizers wrong but we didn't say anything. The mushroom soup was ok. The pasta with the lobster was fine too. I liked the ambiance. Maybe it wasn't a lucky evening, try it out yourself!
