New fav spot!
Service was really quick, a little too quick. The food was delicious
Food was spectacular. Strange to say but food arrived to quickly for a non-business dinner.
Appetizers and main course were fantastic. Their homemade gnocchi was the most tender I've ever had. My only complaint is that the chocolate molten cake was slightly overcooked, and therefore was not very molten at all. Other than that it was a delicious meal.
Great Experience and Great People.
I can’t forget to also mention how good the food is. 😁
Very kind waitress and amazing ambience. Food was very delicious
Restaurant was extremely clean. We sat on the patio which was beautifully arranged with European feeling furniture, and white tents with little white lights.
Staff was super friendly, knowledgeable, and conscientious. The food was absolutely delicious. You must try the Branzino and the risotto! Wow. First visit,, but will definitely return!
Thank you Carisma!
Great food and great staff. Had a wonderful lunch on the patio.
By far the best Italian restaurant in the downtown core great staff
We found several of the dishes under seasoned. The two veal dishes were a bit tough. An heirloom salad that was raved about by the server turned out to be nothing special. The ricotta zucchini flowers were awesome. The tiramisu was very good.
Absolutely fantastic- best service and food we have had in a long time! We will be back!
Excellent food and service, as always. We were on the sidewalk patio and the servers were diligent about hygiene and spacing
Best dining spot for Italian food in the downtown core a must visit
Food was great, ambience was great. We sat outside and very much enjoyed the set up. Great cocktails, wine selection, and menu.
Absolutely amazing experience at Carisma. The people are nice and the food was delicious!!
Thank you for a great evening - 3 ladies (Friday night)
Best spot in the city food is outstanding great service in a nice ambiance
This was our second visit in two weeks. First time for dinner. The other day for lunch. Food was excellent both times. Our favourite place in our neighbourhood.
Food & service was excellent! Will definitely be back
One of the best experiences I’ve had in a longtime. The food flow was perfect there was never a time our food came too early before we finished a course nor did it come to late. The drinks were great we tried about 3 on the menu, and the server was attentive replicating our drinks before they were empty. Great experience, I truly recommend.
Saturday dinner out with the family. The patio setup is lovely. Service and food excellent as always. We enjoyed the grilled calamari, Carisma salad, tuna tartare, gnocchi, veal limone and the Surf & Turf special. The desserts were amazing as well. Highly recommend!
Service level was perfect without feeling overdone. The food was outstanding and had great recommendations for wine. Thanks for a great evening.
Amazing made in-house pasta and sauce. True sophisticated dining experience
We enjoyed our family dinner. However, did not understand the way the terrace is constructed. Seemed kind of dangerous considering the fact that the tables were on the road and not entirely protected from passing by cars.
It was a wonderful evening celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary of my sister and husband. We dined al fresco on a beautiful evening. Our server Daniel was professional and very accommodating and everyone was thrilled with their menu choices. First time we have dined there but would definitely return
I love going there. One of my absolute favorite Italian restaurants in the city.
Always up to customize your order and great suggestion.
The new sidewalk seating is good as well!
Restaurant was not open when I arrived. Very poor customer service to allow people to make reservations when a restaurant is closed.
I made reservations in advance. Came to the restaurant and restaurant was closed. 🤷🏻♀️
Always spectacular. Food, service, etc...
Patio is nice on quiet street.
Cheerful staff and beautiful atmosphere made this a very pleasant dining experiance
Very good service ! We really enjoy it !
We recommand it!
As always the food, wine and service were superb. It was a perfect night and sitting on the patio was a welcome treat
They made special accommodations for us and it was a lovely experience - a must go patio!
We were treated like royalty! Michael and his team helped us put dishes together as we wanted the full experience - antipasta, pasta and secondi. It was all delicious. I would highly recommend Carisma - especially for a special occasion. We had to open up our wallets a bit, but the entire experience was well worth it. Enjoy!
Great restaurant with friendly staff.
Amazing service the owner was an incredible host. The food was to die for great experience all around 11/10
Best restaurant in Toronto
Very delicious and the service was fantastic! Went here when the patio was open but looking forward to coming back one day when the restaurant opens back up.
Some people working at restaurant did not wear masks. Food was great.
Great service and delicious food!
