Restaurant Summary by Allan Borgen:
Located a short distance from the Ontario Airport on the corner of Vineyard and Holt, and tucked away next to the Comfort Suites Hotel is Mustazzoli Ristorante, an inviting and serene Italian restaurant that offers both traditional Northern as well as original Italian dishes in a beautiful setting
For starters, I highly recommend the Bruschetta Crescenza, 3 slices of their grilled homemade bread topped with Crescenza cheese, fresh asparagus, thinly sliced prosciutto ham, with a lovely white truffle essence and the delightful Capesante Buonissimo, 4 huge pan-seared Jumbo scallops served with capers, shallots, and an exciting brandy balsamic cream sauce.
As stunning as the appetizers were, the rest of the items I ordered were just as good. Let’s see there was the Spaghetti Con Sapore DI Mare, shrimp,
scallops, calamari, clams and New Zealand Green Lip Mussels in a light spicy marina sauce, the unique Trota Saltata, boneless trout topped with a shitake mushroom, fresh sage and lemon butter sauce served with fresh veggies, the magnificent Meat Lasagna, 4 layers of ground beef, ground veal, ricotta, mozzarella & parmesan cheeses topped with their rich and creamy ragu sauce, and the Pollo Valdostana, a large chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto ham, Fontina cheese fried in olive oil and garlic and topped with spinach, olives, roasted red bell peppers and served with roasted potatoes, fresh broccolini and kalamata olives finished with a stunning roasted white wine garlic sauce.
For dessert, the Zabaglione, Marsala wine Italian custard with fresh mixed berries served in a martini glass along with a homemade biscotti was the perfect ending to a most magical dining experience.
If you are looking for a great restaurant that is quite different than other high end Italian restaurants and less pricey, Mustazzoli Ristorante is a great choice.
