Thank you Michael, Margo and Silva for helping us host our virtual BDAY dinner. Food was awesome and authentic.
Patio was perfect!!
We will be back again once the restrictions lifts! Thank you to the entire team for helping us celebrate!
Carisma continues to deliver outstanding service during turbulent times. As soon as there doors open I plan to return.
The service and the team were great.
I would definitely go back there for dinner and drinks
Love the staff and food. Amazing place
The service was amazing!
Was great especially given the Covid challenge with out door dining.
The food was delicious (as always) and the service was outstanding (as always).
Excellent food with high-quality ingredients. The staff really take care of you - service is fantastic.
Service was great starting right when we arrived. Was very impressed with the food with its presentation and authentic Italian flavors. Their outdoor tent is well heated which made the whole dining experience very comfortable.
It was a very nice evening and we decided Carisma was where we wanted dinner. Comfortable seating in the tent with a heater right next to us. Had the Lasagna which was delicious and perfect for a fall evening.
We were not disappointed! The food was exquisite. We are of Italian decent and the cuisine is not only authentic but not run of the mill. Unique combinations of flavours and textures that tickle the palet. Would definitely go back.
A great evening on the patio. They have a great set-up for outside and despite a torrential downpour we stayed mostly dry and had a great time. Ricardo took great care of us.
Food was great. We really enjoyed our meal. Our server seemed distracted by another table and he kept looking away in mid-sentence. The patio is about 75% enclosed (All around, not just overhead) and when the rain started, it seemed like they moved a few extra people under the tent which then almost eliminated proper social distancing. It made us a bit uncomfortable but luckily we were done eating so we decided not to stay for coffee or dessert and got out of there.
10/10 as usual great food with wonderful outdoor dining
Outstanding Italian cuisine and Italian hospitality. Thank you Carisma for making us feel so safe during COVID and for keeping us warm. Each table is in a separate tent, with heaters; temperature checked and contact tracing followed.
Leaders in the industry!
A must destination for a fabulous meal- portion size so generous- great vino collection!
The food is outstanding no need for a menu they are so accommodating best Italian food in the city
Amazing food and service, they really make the experience special
Best Italian food n the financial core a must visit
Always a treat to dine at Carisma. Just the right balance of attentive service. Food always enjoyable.
Hands down one of the best restaurants I have been to in a very long time. The staff, the food and the ambiance was amazing. I would recommend this to anyone if you are in the Toronto area.
Super great food and amazing food. Definitely would go back!
With the delicious pasta and a couple of glasses of Proseco, I almost forgot I wasn't actually in Italy.
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
