Chef Massimo Capra

Massimo Capra

Celebrated Chef, restaurateur, author and television personality, Chef Massimo Capra brings his impressive culinary vision to the Rainbow Room. Born with a passion for culinary arts, Massimo was introduced to the kitchen in his early teens and quickly established himself as a master of his trade. His time spent in the finest restaurants and hotels in Italy gave him the chance to hone his skills further before boarding a plane for Toronto in the early 80s. Chef Massimo’s rise to culinary royalty began in a small eatery in Toronto operated by a relative and progressed to his role on the founding team of the legendary Byzantium and to concept development of Black and Blue Restaurant. Today, Chef Massimo is Chef/Co-owner of two well-established restaurants in downtown Toronto: Mistura and Sopra Upper Lounge, and has just opened two new restaurants at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport: Boccone Trattoria Veloce and Boccone Pronto.  In addition, Capra is well known for his appearances as a guest expert on CityTV’s “Cityline”, is a regular contributor to the Globe & Mail, host of Food Network Canada’s “Restaurant Makeover” and is a spokesperson for several national media campaigns.
