Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature 'stache and big personality are coming our way. Chef Massimo is finally opening a restaurant called Capra's Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood.
Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. Starting from the ground up, his career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city.
In the late 90s, he opened Mistura Restaurant and Sopra Upper Lounge in Toronto. On the literary front, he is the author of One Pot Italian and co-author of Three Chefs. He has contributed to The Globe and Mail and has appeared on numerous TV shows, including Food Network's Restaurant Makeover and Chopped Canada and City TV's Cityline and Travel + Escapes Gourmet Escapes TV Series.
A few years back, I was working for a specialty foods importer and had the opportunity to connect with some of the best chefs and restaurants in Toronto, including Mistura. I will never forget a conversation I had with Chef Massimo about when we could expect to see a resto of his own in Mississauga. At that time, there weren't any plans to develop a concept in the west end. However, 2016 is the year it’s finally coming to fruition.
