Butcher’s Cut MSC Cruises

Butcher’s Cut is a speciality restaurant on MSC Cruises. It serves Italian cuisine and has an open-air terrace with views of the sea, as well as indoor seating areas. The menu includes pasta dishes such as spaghetti carbonara, ravioli stuffed with ricotta cheese or spinach, chicken parmesan, meatballs in tomato sauce, lasagna, and pizza. There are also salads and desserts like tiramisu and cannoli filled with chocolate mousse.

The restaurant was named after its location at the end of the ship’s funnel where it could be seen from all decks. In addition to being located near the bow, this area had been used for many years by butchers who would sell their wares directly to passengers. This tradition continued until the 1990s when the new restaurants were built.
