Arrived into downtown way too early for dinner. We stopped in hoping for an early reservation as we knew jet lag would set in. So encouraging to walk into an Italian restaurant and find an Italian family there! When we arrived for dinner, they greeted...More

Not the best start when I walked in from a beautiful summer day to a rather dark entrance. Hostess took my complaint in stride, you'll get used to it, she said with a smile. I thought my partner had made a reservation (she had not)...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!

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
