Though spinning massive amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, it requires superhuman stamina to maintain. Rest your triceps and leave the dough-spinning to the pros with today's Groupon to Affresco Pizzeria/Lounge in Park Ridge. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get $50 worth of dinner fare
  • For $10, you get $25 worth of brunch fare

Affresco's dinner menu is packed with Sicilian-style recipes prepared with sauces, dressings, pastas, and dough made from scratch. Set sail for Mediterranean meal-time with an order of salsiccia con patate e pepe, an Italian sausage sautéed with potatoes and peppers in a white wine sauce ($7). The hearty lasagna is stuffed with never-frozen ground beef, veal, and pork layered with mozzarella cheese, béchamel, and marinara sauce ($16). Affreco's famous pizzas—such as the saltimbocca pizza layered with prosciutto crudo, spinach, and sliced tomato ($15)—spring forth fully baked from a traditional wood-burning oven. Eye-opening brunch dishes, served Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., include a three-egg frittata made with potato, asparagus, onions, and parmesan served with french-fried polenta ($7), as well as the sinfully sweet ciabatta french toast, topped with raspberry, mascarpone cheese, and orange crème anglaise ($7).

Affresco Pizzeria's charming, Old World–style exterior welcomes hungry patrons into a series of intimate dining rooms, including a conspiratorial wine cellar and a rooftop space for enhanced altitudinal flavor. Keep an eye on your pie through the open kitchen window, or discreetly tap into the fermented moon-juice-filled barrels lining the wall. Affresco Pizzeria has generously contributed to a recent G-Team campaign to benefit the Inspiration Corporation and its planned food service training program and social enterprise restaurant in Garfield Park.

Affresco Pizzeria/Lounge

Affresco celebrates the delicious culinary heritage of Sicily with house-made sauces that blanket handcrafted pizza dough and pastas. Each succulent cut of fish or meat arrives fresh, never frozen or teleported, to fill out mouthwatering plates of Italian fare with authentic flavor. Fresh salads combine crispy greens with rich cheeses and house-made dressings, and wood-fired ovens cure tasty thin-crust Sicilian pizzas. In addition to munching on satisfying dinner fare, patrons relish in the Sunday brunch menu's eye-opening frittatas and cappuccino-infused utensils. Scoops of imported gelato and sorbetto end meals on a decadently dulcet note.
