Holland America Line’s Canaletto Specialty Restaurant has updated its menu with a focus on fresh pasta and authentic Italian cuisine.
Several new selections and cocktails have been added to the venue, especially for dinner. There is also a three-course menu that includes small plates, homemade pastas, starters, and desserts, as well as daily specials.
,The pasta we make on board is exceptional and we want the updated menu to continue to reflect an Italian experience focused on freshness and authenticity.“, Said Michael Stendebach, Vice President of Food and Beverage at HAL,
Dinner can start with a small plate. Popular antipasto platters include Parma ham, finocchiona salami, truffle salami, coppa terre Ducalli, Parmigiano Reggiano, and Sicilian olives. Other options include Beef and Sage Meatballs, Burrata, Canaletto Salad, and Grilled Tiger Prawns.
On the other hand, the homemade pasta is the star of the starters. New dishes include caesaresi with Genoese pesto, Italian sausage pecheri, grilled sea bass and mussels, and scallop and calamari trenette.
Among the dishes that remain are Chianti Beef Short Ribs and Herb-Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breasts. Ossobuco, which used to be served once a week, is now offered daily.
Canaletto’s desserts include tiramisu, baked lemon ricotta cheesecake, chocolate hazelnut tart, affogato, and a trio of ice creams. Ice cream is made daily onboard.
New cocktails include an Aperol spritz, a Spumoni (made with Holland America Line’s De Lijn gin), a Tuscan Lemon Drop and a Canaletto Bellini with a selection of fruit purees. The menu includes a selection of sparkling, white and red wines as well as beers and digestifs.
The Canaletto has a surcharge of $25 per person and is included as a special dining option in Holland America Line’s “Have It All” pricing packages.
