This restaurant was recommended by one of the staff at the Omni King Edward just a few doors away. It was a worthy recommendation. The welcome was gracious, we were offered a choice of seats either in the front dining area or near the bar....More

Impeccable service, delicious food and an atmosphere that is much more quiet than the average restaurant in the Financial District. The food is modern Italian and the service is old-style absolutely perfect service. Hard to come close....well done Carisma!

We started with the Insalata Carisma, which they were kind enough to split in the kitchen for us. GREAT bread. My wife got the osso buco and I got the Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragu. We both liked the Pappardelle better. With the waiter's help,...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
