Italian cooking flourished during the Renaissance, when gastronomers such as Galileo shocked the world by proving that different shapes of pasta filled the belly at equal speeds. Savor the latest edible discoveries with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Amici Italian Bistro in Plymouth.
In the sun-soaked dining room of its colonial-style house, Amici Italian Bistro regales guests with an Old World menu of pastas, sauces, and dressings made by hand. Diners can cover the checked tablecloth with a starter of grilled italian sausage, onions, and red peppers ($7) before mouth-tackling an unsuspecting entree of chicken tosca, topped with mushrooms and a garlic white-wine-lemon sauce ($15), or veal parmesan sprinkled with bread crumbs and bathed in Amici's signature sauce ($12 lunch, $16 dinner). Eaters who really want to direct can earn their screen credit by picking either spaghetti, fettuccine, or penne, then coat it in creamy, garlic-infused alfredo ($9 lunch, $11 dinner), robust meat sauce packed with ground sirloin and italian sausage ($8 lunch, $10 dinner), or hot fudge for the purposes of winning bets. Once the last spaghetti strand is slurped, sweet teeth sink blissfully into airy layers of tiramisu ($5) or a delicately crisp, cream-filled cannoli ($4).
Amici Italian Bistro
The aromas of homemade pastas and marinara, meat, and creamy alfredo sauces waft from the partially open kitchen of Amici Italian Bistro into the dining area. There, black-linen-topped tables host plates of veal or chicken breasts in marsala, parmesan, or piccata dishes, or new york strip steaks in king- or queen-size cuts. A daily breakfast menu warms plates with italian-roast-beef hash, frittatas, and pancakes.
