Description

Visit celebrity chef Massimo Capra's celebrated Northern Italian restaurant Mistura, to indulge in a four course seasonal menu comprising multiple tasting dishes.

Massimo Capra is one of Canada's best-loved and most recognisable chefs, known for television appearances on City Television's CityLine and as a chef-host on the Food Network's hit series Restaurant Makeover, amongst others. As a regular writer for "The Globe & Mail" and author of books such as "One Pot Italian", Capra's culinary credentials are unquestionable.

Born in Italy and raised on an Italian dairy farm, Massimo's culinary training began at the National Culinary Institute in Parma. Following a stint in one Italy's top restaurants, Trattoria dell' Amelia in Venice, Capra then spent several years working in various luxury hotels, until he decided in 1982 to launch his career in Toronto.

In 1997, having worked in multiple high-profile restaurants across the city, Capra merged forces with Paolo Paolini, himself a veteran of Toronto's restaurant scene, to open Mistura Restaurant. Mistura was opened in October 1997 to a very receptive public, and today is one of Toronto's leading Italian restaurants. Specialising in Northern Italian cuisine, dishes include contemporary takes on boneless cornish hen, breaded veal loin cutlets and lamb sirloin.

Mistura's dining room has recently been renovated, making for a chic, elegant and relaxed setting to enjoy Chef Capra's famed Italian creations. Using only the freshest ingredients, the seasonal four-course menu included in this gift provides a unique sample of the acclaimed flavours of Mistura, with each course comprising multiple tasting dishes.

Reviews

  • A great dinning experience

    The restaurant treated us like VIPs on a very busy Saturday night. The owner personally served our table and he was a truly gracious host. It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for that special extra.

    Great sampling experience at Mistura!

    Nice ambience!! Staff very friendly and attentive. Food was great and nicely presented. Paolo greeted us personally and asked if we had any allergies, etc. Would have been nice to know more details of the courses as I was full after the 2nd course thinking that it was the main course and couldn't eat it all - brought the ribs home. I wasn't impressed by the dessert though. The restaurant was packed and very noisy.
