Carisma is an amazing upscale Italian restaurant. The ambiance was amazing and the staff are so kind and caring. I would come back here anyday !
Good was fantastic and service was excellent! Would go there again for another special occasion.
Friendly staff, excellent service, amazing food. I have never been more satisfied with a restaurant ever.
Excellent service, delicious food beautifully presented, wonderful decor and ambience.
My partner and I went here to celebrate our anniversary. There were multitude of things that turned this evening from amazing to extraordinary: the fantastic food, the elegant atmosphere, and the stunning decor. But my favourite would have to be our server Carlos — he was so incredibly attentive and was willing to go above and beyond to ensure we'd have the best evening, and we did. It was an overall superb experience and I would definitely come back. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant.
One of the most enjoyable dining experiences ever. Food, cocktails and ambience was excellent but it was the overall service that put it over the top.
Amazing food and service!
DELICIOUS food and wine! Outstanding service ! One of the best Italian restaurants in Toronto!!!
Lovely, romantic spot for a date, celebration or just a great evening out. Service is good and the food is good too. Large selection or wines that are quite expensive. Our bottle was 3.5 times the price of the LCBO price. My lasagna was tasty, but similar in size to my wife's "appetizer" portion of pasta. The scallops (2 huge ones) in the appetizer were cooked to perfection. The bread is awesome!
Fabulous meal! Nice portion size too especially for the fabulous pasta!
Food was good, but not great. Portion sizes are small. We ordered appetizer, main and dessert and still walked not being full.
Always a great experience. These guys continue to execute exceptionally despite all the machinations given the pandemic
My wine will appreciate more vegetables with her main course.
Excellent good. Nice place to go
After covid, we found that many restaurants are not as good as they used to be. Carisma is not one of those restaurants. Carisma is honestly an excellent restaurant using pre-covid standards. We have been twice and both times we've had delicious meals. This is our new favourite Italian restaurant in Toronto.
Best Italian spot in Toronto
Everything was great as usual, only i asked to have fries instead of mashed with my steak and he didn’t bring it and when i asked he brought it when my steak was done and when i said my food is done now too late he took the fries and left , we found it very weird !
Some of the dishes were excellent such as the truffle spaghetti appetizer. The veal Limone was almost inedible. The flavour was good but the veal was like shoe leather. It should have been pounded with a nail hammer to tenderize it. Not a good cut of meat. I ordered raspberry sherbert for dessert and received 1/4 of a scoop for $12.00. Two bites and it was finished. The bites were delicious though. Talk about being ripped off. The cappuccinos were excellent though. Believe it or not, the bathrooms could not be locked and someone walked in on me during a major. They were embarrassed as I was. Would I return, not on your life, overpriced Italian food at double the price of many other great eateries throughout the city.
Wow!!! Top restaurant . From the service to the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant everything was amazing . Delicious food quality and fresh. I recommend 150% . A must when you visit Toronto.
The food was delicious and the service was exceptional.
Really nice place would go back
I love the people there. They’re so kind.
Carisma is one of my favourite places to dine in Toronto. The food, service and setting are always fantastic. Looking forward to returning soon.
Amazing service and staff. Food quality and taste was exceptional. Food came out really quickly. Highly recommend.
Great food and atmosphere. One of our favorite restaurants in Toronto.
Always very good food and service. A most enjoyable lunch.
We loved the food, they were flexible for Vegetarians, great service. Tiramisu was the highlight, must try.
Their food, service and overall vibe was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. 100% recommended
Beautiful and classy restaurant great for a date or any other special occasion
Amazing servers, food, drinks and ambience. Overall phenomenal dining experience. Will definitely be back!
Always a pleasure to chat with the owners and familiar, knowledgeable staff. Service is always exceptional. My daughter wants to hire our server who never let her water go more than half empty, cleaned the table after every course and always checked to make sure everything was okay. Grilled calamari and truffle pasta are always outstanding!!
Amazing food and drinks. The service was top-notch. Beautiful decor inside too. Will certainly revisit soon.
Excellent food and service - Love the salads and grilled calamari.
Costco food! Not real Italian fancy dining. Food is not worth it, this is a scam!!!
We just had an incredible moment. The food was delicious but the service is even better
Wonderful service, fantastic food, great ambience....highly recommend to visit
Lobster spaghetti with brandy tomato cream sauce was excellent as usual. Staff are very professional and it’s a nice place to bring females
Always a pleasure - consistently exceptional service. Danny is a gem and we've been going back year after year for our birthday and anniversary dinners largely because of him. Of course the spectacular food and ambience also has something to do with it = ) will not be disappointed!
Great experience with my partner. We enjoyed every meal , highly recommend the filet mignon, and spicy tomato sauce pasta with seafood. Our waiter was amazing and made the experience super enjoyable as well. If you do all the courses with dessert expect to take 2 to 2.5 hours. Worth the price.
Ambiance has nothing special but the food Is great and the service is fantastic.
We celebrated my husband’s birthday. We were met with a warm greeting by the owner and had great seating. Our server Ricardo was personable and very helpful with our meal choices. The food was delicious. I had the halibut and my husband had lamb and tenderloin. All great choices. We would definitely recommend Carisma for any celebration.
