The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare and drinks at 604 West Morgan Featuring Cinellis in Durham. Within brick-layered walls and under the warm glow of spherical chandeliers, 604's culinary construction crew presents patrons with a menu of elegant Italian eats. A Trojan-bowl of Tuscan bean soup ($7) infiltrates unsuspecting tasters with a satiable blend of pancetta, onion, chickpea and cannellini, while the pork Milanese entree ($21) boasts a braded, pan-fried piece of pig dressed in heirloom tomato, arugula and fresh mozzarella. Pours from the wine menu offer patrons a far more pleasant way to rinse down their rations than soap-filled chocolate cordials.

604 at West Village
Towering brick walls reach up to the exposed wooden rafters and modern, spherical chandeliers hang from 604 at West Village's high ceilings. Beneath this rustic, yet refined decor, plates of contemporary Italian dishes travel to tables, loaded with locally sourced produce, wild boar from Broken Arrow Ranch, and housemade pastas. Every day, chefs incorporate new ingredients from the Durham Farmers' Market into their risotto and craft the pasta primavera exclusively from fresh, seasonal vegetables. During warmer months, the restaurant hosts live jazz performances on its outdoor patio, allowing diners to enjoy the music and eat with silverware made from smelted saxophones.
Sharing the location, but offering a more casual dining environment, The Pizzeria serves oven-crisped pies alongside a similar selection of refined entrees with locally sourced ingredients. Although the chefs are equally comfortable with tossing thin-crust, new york style pizzas by hand and sculpting thicker, sicilian-style pizzas, their signature creation is the Grandma pan pizza with garlic- and basil-spiked tomato sauce. Although The Pizzeria's dining room shares the same brick walls as 604 at West Village, it creates a more lounge-like feel by lining them with neon beer signs and vintage posters advertising low-definition TVs.
