The Arcobasso family has a decades-long tradition of success in the restaurant industry. Over the years, they’ve gained popularity with patrons thanks to Italian family specialties made with freshly made sauces. At Domenico's Italian Restaurant & Lounge, the expansive menu includes everything from Italian sausage sandwiches to USDA choice steaks. And, of course, there's plenty of pasta—chicken fettuccine, baked spaghetti, and Hallie's Special, with linguine noodles, veggies, and red wine tomato sauce. Desserts such as the vanilla bean crème brûlée will help you forget about the giant flaming space meatball that's on a collision course with Earth.
Kostaki’s Pizzeria’s cooks hand-toss their dough, lending it an airy texture before stuffing it with mozzarella and cutting it into St. Louis-style squares within its Cherry Hill kitchen. They can customize pizzas with gyro meat, banana peppers, and the piquant sauces that also flavor their chicken wings. They also whip up a 14 specialty pies, such as a BBQ Chicken, Hawaiian, and the Flagstone, which hoists hefty toppings of peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni, ham, and italian sausage. The restaurant rounds out its menu with chicken wings, half-pound Angus beef burgers, gyros, and beers from Boulevard and Leinenkugel.
Macaroni and cheese might not seem the likeliest of pizza toppings, but CiCis Pizza serves just such noodle-topped, cheesy creation at the buffet and in to-go boxes. Traditional, thin crust, and deep dish pizzas, dotted with toppings such as jalapenos, Italian-style sausage, and pineapple, pair with garden salads, garlic breadsticks, and apple dessert pizza, all of which may be feasted on at home or as a part of the appetizing buffet.
The dough-wielding dynamos at Gumby's Pizza expertly spin and slice hearty pizzas and cheese-covered breadsticks, accommodating late-night eaters with a 3 a.m. closing time Thursdays through Saturdays. Fourteen-inch pies, laden with sauce and dotted with a topping of the diner's choice, sail to tables with a grace matched only by pepperoni-covered ballerinas. Chefs speckle melted mozzarella with fresh mushrooms, bacon, feta cheese, or another of more than 25 available toppings. Alternatively, patrons can opt for a large order of the golden-brown Pokey Stix, composed of the pizzeria's signature garlic bread, topped with parmesan cheese, and served with a savory double-team of dips. As feasts bubble in the oven, guests wile away the time with pool, air hockey, or gravity-defying ceiling soccer. While not included with this Groupon, desserts, salads, and cold brews are also available.
When founders J. Kim Tucci, Joseph A. Fresta, and John P. Ferrara first opened The Pasta House Co. in 1974, they wanted to elevate pasta to an art form. “Some artists sculpt, some paint, and some sketch,” they write on the restaurant’s website. “But, at The Pasta House Co., we create authentic Italian culinary delights.” A few of the locations even have giant, exhibition kitchens so you can watch as pizzas, pastas, and entrees come to life.
Naturally, The Pasta House Co.’s menu revolves around the Italian staple from which it gets its name. There are more than 25 varieties of pasta to choose from, including linguine with chicken livers and the signature lasagna, plus weekday specials such as stuffed manicotti. Meanwhile, the mangia bene menu—which translates to “eat well” in Italian—showcases the more wholesome side of Italian eating, with dishes low in fat and calories that won’t peer pressure you to break curfew.
