Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane fuel mixture of tomato sauce and mustache hair, which made them run forever but left ladybug-luring leaks in driveways.

The family-owned South Tacoma eatery's menu boasts authentic Italian fare molded into palate-pleasing portions by chef-owner Bill Trudnowski. The midday menu features soups, salads, pizza, sandwiches (such as a grilled ahi sandwich with fresh veggies, caper-artichoke tartar, and oregano-kalamata dressing, $14), and pared-down versions of decadent dinner dishes. For dinner, start filling appetite buckets with an order of the antipasti Adriatic ($13.50) or the steamed local clams simmered with sweet-basil pesto and fresh herbs ($12.50). The eatery's wood-burning, 800-degree forno oven chars pizza and pasta dishes to a degree of Rome-approved perfection, so split a margherita pizza ($13) or oven-fired five-cheese manicotti ($14). To quell carnivorous cravings, indulge in the specialty 20-ounce sea-salt-and-cracked-pepper-crusted T-bone Fiorentina ($34), or the 12-ounce bone-in, fire-grilled pork chop rubbed with rosemary and roasted garlic, served with roasted fingerling potatoes ($19).

Cleanse the stomach lining with Adriatic ambrosia, a lemon and cranberry cocktail infused with Stoli Razberi ($8), or let a spirit from Adriatic's full bar or wine selection flow freely through your veins. The eatery's warm but understated décor and outdoor patio make it an ideal location for lingering over the decadent triple-lemon panna cotta ($7.50) with blueberry-port compote and basil syrup, or the chocolate rum cake with zabaglione and whipped cream ($9.50). So take a break from chasing runaway ping-pong balls and venture down to Adriatic Grill for sea-inspired Italian eats.

This Groupon is not valid with happy hour or other specials. Limit one per table.

Adriatic Grill

Awash in the glow of Adriatic's flickering forno, chef Bill Trudnowski fondly recalls a youth spent watching his father, the son of a butcher, prepare fresh farm-to-table cuisine. After a stint in the army, Trudnowski started a new career as a corporate executive chef, eventually opening Adriatic Grill, his first restaurant. Distinguished by locally sourced seasonal ingredients and careful preparation, dishes range from ocean-fresh shellfish and bone-in chops to eight flavors of thin-crust pizzas crisped inside a custom-built wood-burning oven. Bill, named the Best Chef of 2012 and 2013 by South Sound Magazine, is happy to accommodate special requests, whether they involve removing the gluten, substituting items, or writing his autograph in gravy.
