Pasta became a staple of Italian fare after Emperor Caligula famously elevated a plate of lasagna to the Roman Senate. Feast on political recipes with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $125 for five hours of in-home personal-chef service (a $250 value)

After a consultation to determine the date, menu, and other event details, a professional chef comes to the host's home to prepare an Italian meal using materials provided by the host. This Groupon is valid for five hours worth of service, including meal preparation and cleanup. Additional hours, if desired, may be booked at the regular rate of $50 per hour.

Vivoli Café & Trattoria

Vivoli Café & Trattoria's owner, Nunzio Donato Ciaraulo, shares his love of Italian culture and cuisine through a lengthy dinner menu and prix fixe menus that highlight dishes from four Italian regions––Veneto, Puglia, Sicilia, and Lombardia. Chefs gently shower a rack of lamb in barolo wine reduction for the Costolette d'Agnello al Barolo and flavor pork tenderloin with a balsamic-reduction sauce and fresh strawberries, a more practical method for sweetening a dish than having a high-school student body send it Valentine's Day cards. A selection of 16 desserts includes sorbet, cannoli, and a housemade tiramisu. Ciaraulo also leads three-hour, hands-on cooking classes and helps youths learn the basics of operating a restaurant with the Vivoli Academy of Culinary Arts program.
