The proper way to eat spaghetti is to twirl it around your fork, set that fork aside, get another fork, twirl spaghetti around that fork, and then keep doing that until all the spaghetti is on forks. Fill up on Italian fare with this Groupon.

Gigi's Italian Kitchen & Catering
When she was establishing Gigi's Italian Kitchen & Catering during the recession, owner Patty Pulver knew she would have to work hard to get people in the door. But her positive attitude and creative ideas—for example, clients can sign up to take the restaurant's toy-duck mascot on their family vacation and photo document their journey—were eventually overshadowed by the eatery's hearty Italian menu.
Patty's team artfully plates lunches and dinners, which include prime-rib entrees, homemade manicotti, and veal specialties, along with more than 15 paninis and sandwiches served exclusively during lunch. They also bend to their diner’s whims and assemble build-your-own pasta dishes from seven types of pasta, including a gluten-free option, and four sauces. On Wednesday nights, they challenge guests to fill their bellies with all-you-can-eat pasta, complemented by a signature red sauce, optional meatballs, and the hopes that the restaurant will let you curl up and take a nap under the table. Live guitar music serenades diners on Friday and Saturday nights, which further cultivates an atmosphere of merriment at the family-friendly hot spot.
