Life preservers and pizzas are round, often serve as a welcome sight, and make up the entire diet of finicky sailors. Feast on a favorite with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Joe's Place Pizza and Pasta. This Groupon is valid only at Joe's location in Arlington.
Led by Italian native Joe, the pizza chefs at Joe's Place Pizza and Pasta craft a menu of pizza, pasta, and subs from freshly prepped dough, meat, and vegetables. Diners feast on a plethora of pies ($12.99 for a large) bristling with toppings that include eggplant, meatballs, spinach, and fontina cheese ($1.30+). Specialty pizzas range from the Pizzare, which drapes house meat sauce in a cloak of mozzarella ($11.95+), to Sicilian-style constructions ($15.99) that surround themselves with a crisp crust like a scared baker. Pasta entrees such as baked ziti ($13.45) blend Italian and American culinary traditions, and patrons breathe a sigh of relief as a posse of ham, salami, provolone, and veggies arrive at tables in the crusty confines of the Zep sandwich ($5.95–$8.45).
