Stepping into Carisma is like going to Italy for dinner. You feel like this place has been serving customers forever, but it is perfect for a dinner today. The pastas are amazing and so is the service. I could not decide between the Paccheri with...More

We’re four professionals who enjoy fine-dining together. We looked forward to our third visit to Carisma, but were shockingly disappointed: Small, below-average starters including watery soup, inferior sea bass, a tiny $60 venison “special” that tasted like poorly cooked beef, overly loud acoustics that made...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
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
