Welcome to a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of Bracebridge, Ontario, where the rustic charm of Muskoka collides with authentic Italian cuisine. The Inn at The Falls proudly presents its restaurant - Basilico, a place that serves a beautiful symphony of Italian flavors against the picturesque backdrop of the Muskoka River. Today, we will be highlighting the wonders of Italian cuisine, the flavour combinations, and the health benefits that it presents.
Classic Italian with a Twist
At Basilico, the menu is an homage to traditional Italian recipes, skillfully prepared with a contemporary twist. One of our standout dishes is the Rainbow Trout on a bed of vegetables. This dish beautifully combines the local Muskoka freshness with Italian flare. The trout is delicately seasoned and cooked to perfection, served on a bed of crisp, vibrant vegetables, prepared in a style that epitomizes Mediterranean cooking.
Don't forget to begin your meal with our unique appetizers like the Peach Bruschetta, a unique spin on a classic. Our chefs whip fresh ricotta until it's smooth and creamy, spread it on perfectly toasted bread, top it with minced peach, crushed pistachios, and finish with a drizzle of balsamic glaze. The combination is a symphony of flavors - creamy, crunchy, sweet, and tangy all in one bite.
An Array of Options
For those with a craving for something hearty and creamy, the Prawn Carbonara and Mushroom Ravioli are a must-try. The prawns are perfectly sautéed, adding a delightful crunch to the velvety, creamy Carbonara sauce, while the mushroom ravioli will delight your taste buds with its rich and earthy flavours.
Another crowd favorite is the Cacio e Pepe, a simple yet complex dish. This staple of Roman cuisine combines pecorino cheese and black pepper in perfect harmony to create a delectable pasta experience that's rich, creamy and oh-so satisfying. And don't forget to explore our extensive pizza menu, each one crafted with a perfect balance of ingredients to offer you the most delightful Italian treat.
