Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Al Casale Ristorante in Newmarket.
At Al Casale Ristorante, master sommelier and seasoned restaurateur Elio Radocchia infuses a traditional Italian menu with fresh, organic ingredients in a recently refurbished 200-year-old farmhouse. Celebrate a tongue's first rolled r with dishes such as the bistecca di manzo, a 12-ounce AAA Alberta sirloin ($28), or the grilled salmon fillet with mediterranean salsa ($24). Starch lassos abound as well, such as the spaghetti alla casareccia, with sausage and rapini ($18). Diners can complement hearty meals with an extensive array of Italian wines ($6+). Homemade desserts such as the house-made crème brûlée ($9) or tiramisu ($7) end dinner debates over the last digit of pi on a sweet note. Diners devoid of a sweet tooth can opt instead for a postmeal glass of cognac, port, grappa, or italian coffee.
