Canaletto Ristorante Newport Beach

Canaletto

Canaletto Ristorante located in the heart of Newport Beach embodies an elegant atmosphere. The restaurant is an exquisite treasure that few can match with their modern Tuscan elegant ambiance. When dining at Canaletto last weekend, we were immersed into an epicurean experience at their Italian retreat.

Insalata Caprese

The evening began with their Insalata Caprese with warmed vine-ripened tomatoes that tasted like they had just been hand-picked from a vine in the rolling hills of Italy. It was topped with creamy mozzarella, basil and drizzled with the perfect amount of olive oil.

Insalata Di Pere

Our senses were then tantalized with their Insalata Di Pere featuring arugula, radicchio, frisee, grilled pears, grapes, Belgian endive, blue cheese and toasted pecans blended perfectly with a pomegranate dressing.

Casonzei Con Stracchino E Pere

We discovered Italy’s best kept delectable meal for our Secondi at Canaletto. Casonzei Con Stracchino E Pere was a treat to our palate. The dish introduced our senses to the secret of authentic Italian cuisine with housemade ravioli. With the first bite, our tastebuds savored in the combination of the roasted pear and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. The ravioli were blended with asparagus and stracchino cheese sauce before being topped with toasted walnuts.

Salmone Alla Griglia

My husband savored their Salmone Alla Griglia with a grilled Scottish salmon filet with lemon-oil and parsley sauce. It was served with roasted Yukon Gold potatoes and sauteed seasonal vegetables. The fish boasted with fresh tastes like it had just been caught out of the Meditterean surf.

Tiramisu In Gondola

Our palate was tempted by their captivating array of delectable desserts. We began with the Tiramisu In Gondola that was prepared Treviso-style with ladyfingers soaked in rum and espresso, layered with mascarpone and topped with a dusting of cocoa powder.
