Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Italian fare during dinner hours at Aroma Ristorante in Avon Lake. You must purchase at least two entrees to redeem this Groupon.
Aroma Ristorante’s chef and owner Mario Marotta crafts a menu of classic authentic Italian fare to adorn plates with heaping portions. Savor linguine and clams in a garlic-and-white-wine reduction ($17), or indulge in freshness with pasta primavera’s seasonal vegetables in a light basil-garlic sauce. For meat-minded stomachs, the new zealand baby rack of lamb ($28) saves diners a perilous trip to Mordor, and the reginette delivers a bolognese sauce spilled lovingly over a bed of long, flat noodles ($18). Aroma Ristorante’s intimate setting renders it ideal for first dates, anniversary celebrations, and wedding proposals via spaghetti slingshot. Though not included in this Groupon, Mario also teaches cooking classes and hosts various other events throughout the month.
