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 $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine at Angelo's Italian Restaurant downtown.
Backed by a vast menu of assorted Italian fare, Angelo's panders to patrons with sumptuous eating options and flavors from all over Europe's boot. To extinguish hunger pangs, patrons can begin their meals with a selection of appetizers, including toasted-cheese ravioli ($6.99) and mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat ($7.99), before delving into traditional pasta dishes such as fettuccine alfredo ($12.99) and lasagna with meat sauce ($13.99). Appetites can also undo themselves with a generously portioned entree such as the chicken parmigiana ($14.99), veal in a butter-lemon white-wine sauce ($17.99), and a variety of shrimp dishes.
To keep tongues from drying up and withering away, Angelo's keeps its bar filled with delicious liquids and features an extensive wine list. Keep your noshing within the comfy confines of the casual dining room, or wait patiently in the lobby until the warmer months arrive and allow for snacking on the outdoor patio, on which you can enjoy scenic views of the sky or capture passing goats with spaghetti lassos.
