When Pangaea—the earth's greatest rock supergroup—broke up, many fans blamed it on the high-heeled wiles of Europe's inseparable girlfriend, Italia. Discover a sweeter side to the globe's Yoko with today's Groupon: for $20, you will receive $40 worth of savory Italian eats at Antonios' of Nashville.
Antonios' of Nashville combines the traditional flavors of northern Italy with a down-home Southern hospitality. The savory menu includes a variety of pampered veal dishes, such as the costoletto di vitello al parmigiana ($25.95), which features a French-cut veal rib chop, dusted in seasoned bread crumbs, sautéed in clarified butter, layered with tomato filets, fresh mozzarella, unconditional love, basil, and parmesan, and served over linguine. Antonios' of Nashville specializes in preparing fish, the vegetables of the sea, and the scampi alla Antonios' ($22.95) comes baked with heart-healthy olive oil, garlic, tomato sauce, a dash of Sambucca, herbs, and feta. The costolette di agnello ($25.95)—roasted rack of lamb marinated with rosemary, thyme, and garlic—is carved tableside by an expert knife-wielder in order to protect patrons from tempted lamb pirates. No Italian meal or pre-inquisition carbo load would be complete without pasta, and Antonios' of Nashville offers many al dente delights—including melanzane sorrentino ($16.95), a thinly sliced eggplant and cheese bake—sung to sleep on a bed of angel hair pasta.
Sunshine streams in the large windows of the charming eatery's dining room, passing through the wide arches and Corinthian columns to illuminate each table's decadent dishes. The chefs in the European-style open kitchen cook every dish to order using only the freshest ingredients. While Antonios' serves upscale fare, the dress code, like Mr. Rogers, is neat and casual.
