Excellent service and very friendly staffs
We loved Carisma -- beautiful food, attentive service. I wish there were more restaurants like this one.
After reading some reviews, I almost cancelled the reservation since people mentioned that they felt they were rushed. Very glad I didn't. The service was terrific - very proper and old school, but friendly and fun as well. The food was very good, and when I couldn't decide between two pastas, they arranged both on a plate. My only criticism would be a shortage of clams in the vongole, but it was more than made up for by the linguine with truffle butter and shaved truffles. Desserts were terrific. I'd go back in second.
Had a very nice dinner with friends. We all enjoyed our choices , both food and drink. Our server was very good. Our only issue was that the restaurant is quite noisy. Even though we had one of the best tables in the restaurant, it makes it a little difficult to have a nice conversation.
Fantastic place. Will do custom orders to try multiple things. Get adventurous with the pasta. It’s definitely worth it.
Fabulous and cosy Italian food. Servers were outstanding.
One of Toronto’s best restaurants. Food and service always excellent. And we’ve enjoyed food service around the world. Carisma is our go-to place in Toronto.
Excellent reliable Italian classics with a wonderful staff
Amazing Ambiance! Very good service! Excellent alcohol choices!
Awesome service, fantastic food! Highly recommend for all occassions
Over priced, average food, rushed service.
Most amazing italian dining experience, the server was outstanding.
Wonderful dining experience. Delicious food, friendly and amusing service. Will definitely recommend to others and look forward to coming back!
The place was very nice and the staff were incredibly kind and attentive. The pasta dishes we had were outstanding, but the real gem was the carpaccio that we had to start. would certainly come back.
This place is fantastic. Burrata cheese as silky, Papardella with will boar , scallops, truffle pasta...all perfect. Service was amazing. I love this restaurant.
Amazing place!! Owners are the sweetest, very welcoming. He shared his olives with us!! Love you guys!
Very good service, great food, a perfect fit for a business meal downtown Toronto. I will definitely come back.
We had a wonderful time; the food and service was superb. Our waitress (Debbie) was very friendly and attentive and the few dishes she recommended was spit on! We would definitely go back there again.
Found Carisma in a Trip Advisor search, then had it recommended by a friend so we made a reservation. Seated by the owner, our waiter was a delight, meals were interesting and delicious. (filet and chicken dishes) We really liked the atmosphere for a nice evening out for two. When the quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere are consistent and well matched a restaurant makes sense and provides value. Not a budget restaurant but we felt it was one off the most enjoyable we tried in years and therefore was good value - will return when back in Toronto.
One of our old standbys. Always good authentic food delivered by competent staff
Lunch with clients
One of the best Italian restaurants in the city. By far the best service in the city. This restaurant never disappoints.
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
I eat here several times a year on business trips. The food is always very good and the owner and staff are very welcoming and attentive - I often am a single diner and rather than trying to force me to the bar they always find a table for me and treat me very well.
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:)
