The team at Massimo’s Italian Fallsview Restaurant consists of some of the most talented culinary artisans in the Niagara Region working to provide exceptional fine-dining experiences overlooking Niagara Falls.
Inspired by Sunday dinners at his Nonna’s, Chef Frank Aquino developed his passion for cooking at an early age. He credits a simple pot of chili he made for his family as the starting point of his culinary career. A one pot meal for a family of 4 quickly turned into 30 litre batches when friends and family would come to fill their containers.
The pride felt in creating and sharing that simple dish propelled him to study at Niagara College where he was mentored by Chef Mark Picone. Chef Aquino has developed his craft in fine kitchens throughout Niagara and the GTA including Millcroft Inn & Spa, Trius Winery, and Ravine Vineyards.
He began his residency at Massimo’s Italian in 2012, and still considers a guest enjoying a meal as the highest of compliments.
