Few scents are sweeter than those of warm food wafting from an oven—and when one's homeland is a giant boot, the need for delicious aromatics is that much greater. Sniff and taste Italy's finest with today's Groupon. For $15, you get $30 worth of fresh Italian cuisine and drinks at Figlio, located near Brookside on the Country Club Plaza.
Feasting on Figlio's menu of authentic Italian fare will leave you feeling as sturdy as Michelangelo's David and as confident as Michelangelo's David when he's wearing pants. Start your repast with an order of thinly sliced carpaccio, topped with lemon garlic vinaigrette, capers, and parmesan ($11), and a plate of toasted cheese ravioli served with marinara sauce ($8), or prime your palate with a sampler trio of restaurant specialties (calamari, toasted ravioli, and a Sonoma cheese torte, $16). Teeth and novelty vampire dentures sink perfectly into Figlio's admirably al dente pasta, including fettuccine alfredo con pollo (tossed in a rich cream sauce and topped with chicken, $20) and spaghetti diavolo (scallops and shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce, $18)—both made with fresh, handmade noodles. Figlio's prides itself on its wood-fired pizzas, which include the classic Margherita (marinated tomatoes, fresh basil, goat cheese, and fresh mozzarella, $12) and chicken pesto (basil pesto cream, Roma tomatoes, grilled chicken, and crispy bacon, $12). Among the dinner entrees, the chicken marsala ($18) wins many beauty pageants held in people's mouths, with savory favorites such as chicken piccata ($18) and eggplant parmigiana ($17) coming in as strained-smile runners-up. A side of house salad or soup can be added to any pasta, pizza, or dinner entree for $4.
Enjoy your tasty Italian treats from within Figlio's cozy, romantic interior, or take your authentic dining experience to new heights as you lean like a Pisan tower over the scenic J.C. Nichols Fountain from the restaurant's charming balcony. This Groupon is valid on nightly food and wine specials, excluding happy hour. Reservations are recommended, so call ahead or serenade Figlio with a heartbreaking aria from the foot of the balcony.

- I've never had to wait too long for service and the wine was always excellent. They've got a sweet view of the park which is great in the summer time at night. – Amouramis, Urbanspoon
