Despite its similar shape, a pizza tends to not make a good Frisbee due to the difficulty of throwing with sauce-soaked hands and running on a field covered in slippery pepperoni slices. Use pizza for mouth-sports with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Gigi's Italian Restaurant. Choose from four locations:
- South Pasadena
- Treasure Island
- St. Pete Beach
- 4th Street North
Gigi's Italian Restaurant is a family-owned eatery that has been injecting diners with the recommended dose of pizza, pasta, and parmigiana since 1967. Initiate meal time with appetizers such as the calamari, lightly fried to crispy resistance ($8), or Gigi's bruschetta, a toasty platform topped with fresh tomatoes, zesty snips of red onion, and dewed by balsamic vinegar and olive oil ($7). The specialty brick oven pizzas tempt taste seekers with the minimalist pizza margherita ($14.17 for a medum) and Gigi's special, an ensemble of pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, sausage, and green pepper peacefully playing culinary bocce ball within the boundaries of a thin-crusted circumference ($21.94 for a medium). Gigi's dinner menu represents the full gamut of authentic Italian favorites, including creamy pasta carbonara ($12), chicken piccata sautéed in a lemony garlic sauce ($15), and eggplant a la parmigiana, where slices of thick, breaded and fried eggplant are crowned with Gigi's sauce and accompanied by a hearty portion of pasta ($14). Pair plates with beer and wine, or a libation from the full liquor bar at the South Pasadena and St. Petersburg locations.
The dim lighting and red interior of Gigi's is an ideal setting for an intimate conversation with a lover or imaginary friend who you convince to become your lover over the course of the evening. In addition to Gigi's traditional dinner fare, this Groupon can also be used towards lunch offered exclusively at the Pasadena location. Pastrami sandwiches ($7), steak hoagies ($7), and ravioli ($7) satiate the midday Pasadena wanderer, famished from a restless night spent tied to a wind turbine propeller.
Dine-in only. This Groupon can be applied toward early bird dinner specials.
