Top Pizza packs patrons' bellies with selections from a menu packed with New York–style pies strewn with medleys of more than 20 toppings. Like slam-poets in a geometry class, diners can orally attack triangular shapes sprinkled with up to four toppings, ranging from extra cheese to sausage to jalapeños. Mangle 10-slice pies along with garlic rolls inside toothy caverns while pausing to use refreshing soda to hydrate parched esophagi or water a grove of sugar-cane trees.
Caffe Di Notte serves traditional Italian fare inside of a contemporary setting. The restaurant has a beautiful wooden bar and colorful, modern portraits hang on many of the walls. The menu features a variety of pastas, from penne and ravioli to spaghetti and linguine, as well as several types of risotto. Other offerings include ossobuco, chicken Francese and the classic caesar salad, while specials often involve a pear and blue cheese ravioli in a sage reduction and amaretto sauce, in addition to a chicken rollatini stuffed with crab meat in a lobster bisque sauce. The restaurant is open for lunch and has an extensive wine list with a special selection of cabernet sauvignons. The portions are large and can definitely be eaten family style.
Classic Italian gets a contemporary take at Trattoria La Gondola (formerly Trattoria Dolce Vita), where chef-owner Omar Morillo draws on the culinary skills he perfected during his years in Italy. His innovative, housemade pasta dishes are light and full of surprising ingredients; the black-calamari-ink ravioli stuffed with crab swims in a pink vodka sauce, and a creamy gorgonzola sauce with a hint of truffle hides ravioli bursting with pear and ricotta.
Main courses include meatier options too, such as the salmon in a honey-mustard glaze and prosciutto- and buffalo-mozzarella-stuffed chicken. House wines and enthusiastic but tasteful exclamations of “Mamma Mia!” are ideal finishes to meals.
Italian dinner hosts never allow their guests to leave the table until buttons are bursting and plates are spinning precariously on rods. This intense passion for food paired with a welcome-to-the-family attitude generates the perfect semolina storm from which today's deal was spun. For $15, you get $35 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Kaliapy's in Pinecrest. As casual as it is fine, the family-operated establishment has been inviting hungry guests to dine in a capacious yet cozy setting since 2006. Bring your whole entourage and reap the benefits of combined powers—parties of four or more can use two Groupons.
The chefs at Del Sur Market aren’t trying to come up with new and crazy toppings for their dishes; they’re trying to enhance the dishes’ natural flavors with simple, complementary sauces and sides. The result is a fresh-tasting menu of artisanal dishes, ranging from the nuanced flavors of the cheeses on the house mozzarella bar to the grilled rib eye rubbed with rosemary sea salt and topped with kalamata olives and red potatoes. The chefs aren’t afraid to make unique choices when pursuing a dish’s natural flavor, however, and so they wrap grilled filet mignon in pancetta and serve it over cremini mushroom risotto and incorporate pears and gorgonzola into ravioli nestled in a marsala wine sauce. They can also recommend boutique vintages of wine that pair well with the dishes' natural flavors, creating well-rounded gourmet meals for both lunch and dinner.
