New Italian bistro for former Eglinton Ave. restaurateur


Published:

Even an ulcer couldn’t keep Michael Pagliaro, former co-owner of Il Mulino on Eglinton Avenue West, away from the restaurant business.

Diagnosed while on a winetasting tour in Italy, Pagliaro initially decided it was time to put an end to his 45-year restaurant career.

That changed when his daughter Monica quit her job at the Bank of Montreal and professed interest in “joining the family tradition.”

Enter Carisma, the Pagliaro family’s new restaurant, a classic Italian eatery on the corner of King and Jarvis Streets. Pagliaro enjoys being back on the scene.“As long as I make customers happy, as long as I can make their night, I’ll keep doing it,”he says.

Carisma is located at 73 King St. E., 416-864-7373.
