Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane fuel mixture of tomato sauce and mustache hair, which made them run forever but left ladybug-luring leaks in driveways. Power your body motor without having to share with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of Sicily-inspired pizza, pasta, submarine sandwiches, and more at Anthony's II in Thornton. Anthony's II won third place in the Best of Denver's 7 A-List contest for Best Pizza in 2007.
Flavorsome ingredients and fresh, handmade dough marry in gourmet specialty pizzas such as Mr. C's Meat Lover's Stuffed Pizza Pie (pepperoni, salami, sausage, meatballs, beef, ham, and five cheeses, $18.49 for a 12-inch pie), the hot and spicy barbecue chicken ($12.49 for a 12-inch), and the vegetarian Pizza Bianca (Alfredo sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, romano, fresh basil, black pepper, and black olives, $11.49 for a 12-inch). Indulge in a plate of impeccably prepared pasta such as baked ziti ($10.99), or use this Groupon toward a family-sized portion of meat tortellini ($32.99 for four servings). Italian entree specialties include fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp ($9.99), spaghetti with clams tossed in either a light garlic-butter sauce or classic marinara ($10.99), and eggplant parmesan served with a side of spaghetti, garlic bread, and salad ($9.49). Subs, spicy wings, salads, and desserts round out the menu into a nicely round circle tastier than a traffic circle or rutabaga crop circle.

Feast on the patio, take your meal to go, or call to have one of Anthony's II's kitchen kin deliver your delishins.

- This is a Family Place and probably the best kept secret in Denver. I hope the secret gets out. The staff is friendly and helpful, the Pizza is outstanding. We enjoyed it so much we went back the second night. – Spanky, Yahoo! Local
- Their sauce is nice and tangy with just the right balance of spice, and the cheese / toppings are exceptional, as well. We have only ordered the Sicilian thus far but YUM, especially with marinated tomatoes, prosciutto, and basil! If you have not ordered from Anthony's II yet, make sure this is your next pizza call - you will not be disappointed! – coscaccias, Citysearch
- Very fresh ingredients, great crust and great sauce. What more can you ask? – CalebR, Citysearch
