At CiCi’s Pizza, feasters can sample hearty slices of pizza and a wide selection of buffet fare ($4.99 per person over 10 years of age), filling bellies like a pouch-stuffing kangaroo preparing to weather the harsh Australian winter. Offering endless helpings of fresh salads, tantalizing pastas, tasty desserts, and oven-fresh pizzas, CiCi’s tames the most voracious hunger attacks via all-you-can-eat tactics. Pizza dough is made fresh daily and doused in a savory sauce crafted from vine-ripened tomatoes and prescience-instilling spices, while salads are hand-tossed with the freshest ingredients delivered hourly via teleportation.
Amerigo’s executive chef Stephen Ward maintains a healthy rapport with local farmers to source fresh ingredients, which fill the eatery with the aromas of garlic, basil, tomatoes, and polenta. The Nashville Scene has lauded his efforts to work with area agrarians, and Amerigo also received the 2009 Diner's Choice award from OpenTable. In the bustling kitchen, chefs pull pizzas from the rippling-hot waves of a brick oven, where pickled onions cook into molten feta from Tennessee-based Bonnie Blue farms. Gluten-free and wheat pastas as well as ravioli and tortellini stuffed with smoked chicken and crab swim in a range of house-made sauces, and the complex earthy scent of cedar wood mingles with the aromas of fresh fish. The wine list brims with local elixirs and wines from Italy, which clink together in glasses with the soft jangling of robots playing Twister.
Castrillo's Pizza surrounds its kitchen with open boxes, ready to pack up its signature pizzas for takeout or delivery transit. The staff make traditional hand-tossed and thin crust dough before topping it with a variety of toppings. 10" gluten-free crusts are available. The menu also includes customizable calzones, chicken alfredo lasagna, and honey-barbecue chicken wings topped with brown sugar, barbecue sauce, and slices of pineapple. Patrons can carry their meals straight home or settle down to eat in the courtyard just outside Castrillo's front door. For lunch, patrons can get individual pizza slices from 11am to 2pm every day. Although not valid for this Groupon, patrons can order online for delivery.
The founder of Bria Bistro Italiano teamed up with an executive chef to create a menu of Italian fare with seasonal ingredients. In the kitchen, chefs bake Italian favorites, such as lasagna stuffed with ricotta cheese, and prepare eggplant parmesan with housemade mozzarella and fire-roasted red peppers. Personal culinary flair is added by providing apricot-chutney accents, drizzles of white-truffle oil, and sides of herbed polenta fries. Servers pour glasses of wine from the extensive wine list to pair with entrees, including everything from bold reds to floral whites as crisp as a freshly dry-cleaned apple.
Michaelangelo's Pizza's cooks put a little art into every pie they make. They offer standard fare??pepperoni, sausage, ham, or all three plus beef and bacon on their meatlover's pie??alongside specialty pizzas that recreate philly cheesesteaks or chicken alfredo. They also let customers build their own pizzas, or get their cheese, sauce, and up to four toppings folded within a calzone, the baked envelope of dough ideal for mailing yourself dinner. They also offer salads and sandwiches, but for dessert they return to what they're best at: satisfying sweets cravings with a cherry dessert pizza. \
