It’s All About the Appetizers

rronion-soupEating at a restaurant is often a very entree-oriented experience, but here at the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra we think it’s important not to overlook the innovative and amazing flavours that can also be found in appetizers. So, here are some of the best seasonal appetizers currently on the menu at the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra, which are guaranteed to be unforgettable and will start your meal off with a bang.

Milli-Strato Lasagna

The Milli-Strato Lasagna is a very special dish that we’ve created in honour of the 87th anniversary of the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls Fallsview hotel. It features 87 amazing layers of hand-rolled pasta served with Massimo’s signature bolognese, bechamel, and grana padano, because we can’t think of a better way to celebrate an anniversary than with 87 layers of pasta.

Pear & Prosciutto

It’s pear season in Niagara and we’ve found that nothing compliments delicious Bartlett pears quite like some amazing pingue prosciutto. This seasonal dish features gorgonzola cheese, candied walnuts, and pomegranate caviar, making it a sweet and savoury fall appetizer that will be the perfect start to your meal.

Niagara Greens

At the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra we pride ourselves on using fresh and seasonal ingredients from across the Niagara region in order to offer guests a truly local culinary experience. And no appetizer has more of a local flair than our Niagara Greens dish, which features locally farmed, sweet potato “fieno” dried Niagara fruits, toasted pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, and balsamic ancient grain dressing.

Zuppetta Di Cipolla Onion Soup

There’s no doubt that Italian food and wine go hand-in-hand, but that doesn’t mean we should forget about the amazing flavours that beer has to offer. We’ve incorporated Niagara Brewing Company’s Amber Eh! Ale into our Zuppetta Di Cipolla Onion Soup, which also features aged provolone and grilled calabrese bread and offers a totally unique taste that is sure to warm you up.

Stop by the Rainbow Room by Massimo Capra to try all of these amazing appetizers and experience the most innovative Italian cuisine that the city has to offer, all in direct view of the spectacular Niagara Falls.
