Although Italians originally invented pasta as a fastener to keep Sicily from floating away, they abandoned it for less delicious moorings after locals on both sides kept snacking their way toward separation. Tether your taste buds to today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Italian and American cuisine and desserts at Ange Netta’s in Canfield.
The familial gourmands at Ange Netta’s populate a mouthwatering menu with homemade Italian and American fare. Sautéed italian greens and plum tomatoes slink between troves of penne rigate in full orders of emerald pasta ($10), and italian hot sausage and meatballs pile atop fresh ricotta and mozzarella cheeses to create heaping stacks of hearty lasagna (10). Health-conscious menu items, such as the grilled tilapia marinara ($8) and vegetable burger ($6), promote nourishing nosh fests that, much like rechargeable batteries, keep bodies moving without slowing them down.
To alleviate postfeast sweet cravings, a boundless dessert menu treats diners to daily-made decadences including homemade tiramisu and carrot ginger cake ($3.50/slice). As diners appease their appetites, the open kitchen proffers up-close views of cooks in their natural habitat, preparing meals, grazing the vegetable selections, and manicuring each other's heads of lettuce.
