When Pangaea—the earth's greatest rock supergroup—broke up, many fans blamed it on the high-heeled wiles of Europe's inseparable girlfriend, Italia. Discover a sweeter side to the globe's Yoko with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Franco's Trattoria in East Falls.

After taking a seat on the outdoor patio along the banks of the Schuylkill, trattorize your face with Franco's menu and rush an appetizer of braised mussels with fennel broth ($12) directly onto the table of your tongue. For the secondi, try Franco's homemade ricotta ravioli sautéed in a black-pepper-butter emulsion ($15.25), or devour the pork milanese, a breaded pork chop freshly hatched from a frying pan chrysalis ($19). The shrimp arrabbiata sautéed with garlic and served over linguine with a special spicy tomato sauce ($19.75) gives seafood eaters something succulent to share with the remoras that clean the bacteria off their dorsal fins.

Light eaters may prefer the seared salmon salad, which garnishes a mustard vinaigrette-drizzled mix of field greens with tomatoes, grilled onions, and flavorful fish ($13). Otherwise, keep yourself from floating away during a gravity outage with Franco's house lasagne, which interposes layers of ground beef, sausage, and ricotta cheese in the sweet embrace of tender pasta ($16.75) and pairs best with the house wines.

Like chili popsicles and videos of grizzly-bear ballerinas, Italian food is enjoyed around the world due to its versatility and heartiness. Take a fellow human or deceptively hairless shetland pony out for a cozy dining delight with today's Groupon to Franco's Trattoria.
