Inspired by, and named after, a Roman cave, Calisto Restaurant & Lounge, on Toronto’s College Street, offers a multilevel space for incentive travel dine-arounds, private events and corporate business meetings.

Owner Gianfranco Loponte (of Vivoli) spent three months renovating the venue before it opened in July. The ceiling and walls are curved and covered with a concrete treatment designed to give the appearance of a cave carved out of white rock.

“I wanted to give it an ancient look. I wanted it to have an old European feeling,” Loponte said. “It has a different dimension than a restaurant with regular walls.”
