When Capra’s Kitchen opened its doors in Mississauga, the food scene changed–and the restaurant is doing its best to ensure local foodies are never bored. 

It feels like only yesterday that celebrity chef Chef Massimo Capra and his signature ‘stache and big personality came to our city. In 2017, Chef Massimo opened Capra’s Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood.

While the food at Capra’s Kitchen is not to be missed, the chic but casual hotspot is changing things up with a brand new cocktail menu that drink aficionados will absolutely love. At Capra’s, you can come for a delicious Italian meal and stay for the unique, hand-crafted cocktails.

In fact, diners in the mood for a drink can simply come in, grab a seat at the beautiful bar and sip on a classic or modern cocktail while enjoying the game on TV. 

So, what’s on the new cocktail menu? 

The new menu features barrel-aged cocktails, including a Negroni that’s been aged for 30 days. The cocktail consists of Tanquerey gun, Dolins sweet vermouth, Campari and orange bitters.
