A cheese pizza is a blank canvas, just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Italian fare at Aiello's.

Aiello's family-owned and family-operated eatery was founded by executive chef Joe Aiello. His lunch menu of paninis, heroes, and pastas helps to satisfy midday meatball-hero cravings ($12), and the dinner menu serves up a satisfyingly complete selection of Italian eats. Start with an order of the mozzarella carozza, a house-made cheese sandwiched between sheets of semolina and bathed in eggs before being sautéed in a rich sauce of capers, anchovies, lemon, and wine ($7), or go for an order of the crisp fried calamari ($10) before moving on to the dinner's dramatic second act. Oceanographers will want to dive in and explore the linguini fradiavolo, a rich pasta dish made with clams, shrimp, mussels, and calamari ($22), while pasta protestors pore over their selection of specially prepared proteins, such as the tender veal picatta ($19) or the portobello-mushroom-topped filet mignon ($25). Your Groupon is also good for the backdoor pizza, made in batches of only 50 per night and sold to go from the back door only (18”, $16+).

Aiello's boasts a breezy and elegant atmosphere that transports diners to Italian lands without the inherent risks of teleporting. The mood is further enhanced with white-table-clothed tables, high ceilings, and a granite-topped bar. The outdoor patio provides an idyllic setting to linger over a bottle of 1 of more than 35 Italian wines while pondering the correct pronunciation of Respighi or flirtatiously fighting for the last bite of custardy strawberries smothered in zabaglione ($7).
