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!
Ricardo was the most amazing server ever!
Felt like we were in a restaurant in Italy!
Was great to be back ! Missed this place.❤️
The food was great. However, maybe a bit pricy for lunch.
It was so lovely to go to Carisma when they reopened this past Wednesday. The food was excellent and the owners and staff are so friendly. Support our locally owned restaurants by dining at this little Toronto St. gem.
Like a trip back in time to the day she of true fine dining. Beautiful restaurant, great food and Ricardo was amazing and fun.
Amazing food. Staff are really friendly. Probably best Italian in Toronto
Carisma came highly recommended by friends and again at our hotel (Ritz-Carleton). We had a later reservation. We ordered both of the evening specials, as suggested by our waiter. Our meal arrived immediately. There was no way it was freshly made. Warmed up fast and on our table like fast food. Very disappointing.
I’m such a fan of this restaurant- family owned and operated so details matter. Always have a delicious meal!!! Highly recommend.
Outstanding, customized service. Servers remembered our names and were attentive and accommodating
Great food and ambiance. Staff very friendly and professional.
Found the restaurant by looking at options for Toronto. Picked it because of the way it was described and the vibe it presented with. Had a great experience there. Met the owners while we were there. Lovely couple. Had a great time great food and we will definitely come back.
I had the Calamarata which was delicious! Will return.
Amazing! From start to finish!!
It was a Monday and I had hoped for something a little quieter and was surprised by the fact it was full. So it didn’t facilitate a sensitive business conversation due to both proximity to others and noise. Although everything else was a a good as usual. Not their fault. I had just been hoping for something a little quieter and discreet:
Amazing food wonderful staff a hidden gem
Bread was amazing. Wine service spectacular. "Wine Guy" was great. Green apple salad was decent. Osso bucco was small but tender and good. Risotto was rice....not risotto. No creaminess to it whatsoever. Mine was only a side but my colleague had it as a main course and looked like a bowl of rice. Overall a decent meal with great service.
Our meal were excellent and we look forward to coming back the next time we are in Toronto.
Service and food was great. Would definitely come again.
The food was delicious and the staff were extremely pleasant. However, my significant other and I found our server to be pushy, especially when we consistently asked for a few minutes to look over the drink menu to decide what we wanted to have. While we understood that it was Valentine’s Day and they had several reservations, we paid a lot of money for the food and the experience, so we didn’t like feeling rushed to make a decision. The salad and dessert choices could have been much more elevated for the price that we paid per person. Overall, the experience was very pleasant and we would definitely come back to try out their regular menu for a fancy date night.
Love the tuna tartare, but the veal was just so so.
