Unfortunately, Nero is remembered as the callous emperor who watched Rome burn from his palace tower, not the enlightened gastronome whose vision was to reinvent the city as a giant brick oven for pizza. Adopt a flavor-first outlook with this Groupon.

$15 for $30 Worth of Upscale Italian Cuisine and Drinks

Lunch and dinner menus brim with pastas such as housemade gnocchi tossed with fresh mozzarella, plum tomatoes, and garlic ($12.95) and meaty lasagna di carne ($14.95). Secondi entrees tout hearty plates of veal with spicy red sauce and mushrooms over a bed of pasta ($23.95) and bistecca rib-eye steak ($22.95).

Via Veneto Ristorante Italiano

For more than 20 years, Chef Tony Barbanente has adapted recipes from his childhood in an Italian fishing village to form a menu of simple yet delectable seafood dishes that earned him accolades from ABC 7's Hungry Hound. Chefs construct made-to-order veal, stuffed squid, and house-made pastas to slake hunger pangs or at least make them sing baritone during a medley of Pavarotti's greatest hits. The aromas of fresh cooking weave through the bright dining room, which features exposed brick and walls lined with black-and-white photos. The house language instructor, from Bari, Italy, educates curious diners about Italian cuisine and etiquette, including what to do when a pie-shaped moon hits the eye for just a little too long.
