People often think they can cook Italian food from scratch, but the challenges of raising truffle-hunting pigs, milking tomatoes for sauce, and giving angels good haircuts overwhelm all but the most highly trained chefs. Leave Italian cooking to the experts with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine from Angelina Ristorante.

Angelina Ristorante is a trattoria eatery, which means it's less fancy than a ristorante and more fancy than an osteria—about as fancy as a tiara encrusted with beach glass. Its menu, assembled by seasoned chef Fred Ramos, offers myriad Tuscan favorites with rock-solid pasta architecture and moats of fresh sauce. Metroxmix recommends the ravioli, which is cut by hand daily, and Chicago Magazine mentions sautéed calamari and pasta pomodoro.

Angelina Ristorante

Angelina Ristorante opened its doors in 1988 as a culinary homage to cofounder Nunzio Fresta's Italian grandmother. Within its colorful, chandelier-illuminated interior, executive chef Fred Ramos employs experience at top-notch Chicago eateries such as Room21 and Gioco to devise trattoria-style dishes draped in zesty sauces and seasonal ingredients. Choice cuts of duck breast, veal, and beef shoulder mingle with sides of creamy polenta or whipped potatoes, and homemade morsels of gnocchi and ravioli are rolled by hand before being draped in cheese- and wine-based sauces.
