Almost as pleasurable as a restaurant's food are the little rituals that go along with it: perusing the menu, anticipating the meal, and hiding under the table and grabbing passing waiters by their ankles. Drink in the whole experience with this Groupon.

$10 for $20 Worth of Italian Lunch

The menu's fresh fried calamari ($9.99) sets the stage for penne pomodoro in fresh tomato and basil sauce ($8.85); thin-crust pizza with crumbled sausage, pepperoni, and meatballs ($10.99); and grilled chicken panini with roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, and sun-dried tomatoes ($9.85). This Groupon is valid for lunch Monday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Calandra's Il Vecchio Cafe

It would be easy to spend an entire day at Calandra's Italian Village—perusing the colorful packaged Italian imports in the market, lingering over a cup of pistachio gelato in the gelateria, and finishing off with a glass of wine in the bar. Wanderers who stroll to the left of the village stumble into Il Vecchio Cafe, where Italian tapestries adorn the walls and diners chat animatedly at wooden tabletops. Servers dart across the sunlit floors, bearing plates of homemade penne alla vodka, eggplant caprese panini, and broiled tilapia and refilling glasses of wine. A counter overlooks the kitchen, where a wood-burning oven bakes thin-crust pizzas. Wooden beams and vintage-style walls enclose the tabletops that speckle the outdoor stone deck, creating the look of a rustic Italian farm or the set of a movie where a rich businessman learns the value of friendship from a talking countryside mouse.
