Had a lovely evening at Carisma. Service was very friendly. Menus and wine list extensive. Excellent Burrata starter. Fresh fish and seafood selection and homemade pasta. A definite spot for a romantic dinner.

Initially, staff were jovial. After ordering cocktails, we were then told the specials and placed our orders. Salads came within 5 minutes of ordering and we weren't even finished our cocktails yet. I suspect our entrees were quick on the heels of the salad but...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

Yes there is a paid lot right beside the restaurant.
Can anyone tell me if you can bring your own wine, and if so, what their corkage fee is?
