Updated menu at Italian specialty
restaurant features new recipes and cocktails
Canaletto offers a quintessential Italian experience, and
all the pasta is made fresh on board by Holland America Line's
expertly trained chefs. The refreshed menu offers a three-course
meal that includes Small Plates, Homemade Pastas and Entrées, and
Desserts, in addition to a Special of the Day.
"The pasta we make on board is exceptional and we want the
updated menu to continue to reflect an Italian experience with a
focus on freshness and authenticity," said Michael Stendebach, Holland America Line's vice
president, food and beverage. "Each course has a selection that
brings the flavors of Italy on
board no matter where our ships are cruising, and the update adds
some exciting new dishes and cocktails."
Small Plates, Big Flavors
Guests can start their meal at Canaletto with a Small
Plate. The popular Antipasto Plate features prosciutto di parma,
finocchiona salami, truffle salami, Terre Ducali coppa, Parmigiano
Reggiano and Sicilian olives. Other options include Veal and Sage
Meatballs, Burrata, Canaletto Salad and Grilled Tiger Shrimp.
Entrées Showcase Fresh Pasta
Fresh pasta made on board is the star of the entrée selections.
New dishes include Casarecce Pesto Genovese, Italian Sausage
Paccheri, Seared Mediterranean Seabass and Mussels, Scallop and
Calamari Trenette. Returning favorites include Chianti-Braised Beef
Short Rib and Herb and Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast. Formerly a
once-a-week special, Ossobuco is now offered daily.
Delectable Italian Desserts
Italy is known for its amazing
sweets, and Canaletto's menu features a selection of traditional
desserts, including Tiramisu, Lemon Ricotta Baked Cheesecake,
Chocolate Hazelnut Tart, Affogato and a trio of gelato. The gelatos
are also made fresh daily on board.
