Our Story

CARISMA prides itself on being one of Toronto’s Best Italian Restaurants and remains a favourite amongst its long-standing loyal clientele.

Owners Michael, Margi and daughter Monica, are not new to the restaurant scene. With a long history of being in the business, including restaurants such as Barolo and Il Mulino, Carisma offers the same authentic Italian food and quality service they are known and loved for.

After spending 8 years on King Street East, Carisma has relocated to 15 Toronto Street. Only steps away from its original location, Carisma is now able to accommodate more than ever with two private rooms, a larger dining space and separate bar area.

Carisma is described in one word is what the Italians like to refer to as “accoglienza”, the epitome of hospitality, a warm welcome that only comes with experience, heart and lots of Carisma!

Together with the whole Carisma Family, We look forward to welcoming you to our new home and making new memories together.

      The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The space is quiet and relaxed and modern and comfortable. The food was delicious, fresh, home-made, and high-quality. Even the bread appetizer they brought was just amazing! The price was very reasonable for the level of service and quality.
