Carino Japanese Trattoria

How can a fusion of cultures look as fun as the food?


Carino Riserva's owner, Toshi Karino, wanted something to change. His restaurant—a quaint, hole-in-the-wall Japanese/Italian fusion in the midst of Calgary's bustling Mission district—wasn't standing out like it ought to, and the branding wasn't pulling it's weight. Toshi, born Japanese and educated Italian, knew that his self-titled "Japalian" had an element of adventure that wasn't coming across with local foodies. We set out to change that.
