A restaurant meal is incomplete without its after-dinner mint, which cleanses the palate before patrons gnaw a subterranean tunnel home. Chew the scenery with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Italian Cuisine and Wine
Antica Roma Trattoria & Bar's menu of petite plates, juicy steaks, and piping-hot pizza complements an award-winning wine list. Inside the dining room—reminiscent of an Italian piazza with a babbling fountain and exposed brick walls—a selection of small plates fills pre-entree belly space with the likes of cozze quazzetto, steamed mussels in a garlic-white-wine broth ($6).
The fettuccine aragosta's lobster, shrimp, peas, and sun-dried tomatoes hunker down amid swirls of pasta in a rich lobster-cream sauce ($23), and the filetto cardinale's garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus artfully arrange themselves into fractals alongside a seven-ounce filet mignon in brandy cream sauce ($25). Lunch dishes include the Veneto panini with house-made meatballs ($8) and pizzas ($8.50–$13) cooked in a wood-burning oven. A variety of white and red wines ($7–$12/glass) can be enjoyed on the outside patio, weather permitting, with views of fashion-conscious birds window-shopping at the Pearl Street Mall.
If you miss Italy, go to this place. Lots of interesting choices for vegetarians.LuanaRubin, TripAdvisor, 9/16/12
The food was excellent. The Gazpacho was extremely refreshing and crisp. My Steak and Gorgonzola Panini with Carmelized Red Onions was very tasty.Brett R., Yelp, 8/4/11
