Avanti at the Arboretum  - Rain Tree: $10 for $20 Worth of Pizza and Pasta at Avanti at the Arboretum

Jump to: Reviews | 8-Bit Pizza

Today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of old-school Italian food and drink for $10 at Avanti at the Arboretum. Avanti serves calzones, oven-baked subs, strombolis, and bakery desserts in addition to pasta and its specialty, New Jersey–style pizza.

Jersey-style pizza has crust a notch thicker and sauce just a skosh sweeter than New York–style, meaning it's more delicious than even the Big Apple's deliciousness. Avanti's pizza menu serves up a variety of pie types, including Sicilian cheese, Hawaiian, stuffed-meat lover, and eggplant. You can get it by the slice ($2.25–$3.95), by the pie ($9.99–$27.95), or create your own (starting from $9.99). Avanti also serves up heavy-duty calzones ($7.25), stuffed-to-bursting strombolis ($6.75), and a variety of pasta dishes, sandwiches, and salads. Pasta plates include lasagna ($10.50), baked ziti ($8.95), chicken parmigiana ($10.50), and 16 other Italian favorites. Avanti's Italian bread is baked fresh daily.

The restaurant's location and comfortable, down-to-earth décor makes it an ideal place to refuel after a day of Christmas shopping, non-stop shopping, shop-till-you-drop shopping, or steering-wheel-cover shopping. Order a large Avanti Special (Sicilian curst, crushed tomatoes, basil, olive oil, Romano, and mozzarella cheeses), enjoy the friendly, attentive service, and a stopping of shopping.

Reviews

Yelpers give Avanti at the Arboretum four stars, Citysearchers give it 3.5, and Insider Pagers give it three stars:

  • We've tried a few of the other pizza places locally, and we like this one the best by far. Big pie, fresh ingredients, overall it tastes very good. – montgomeryburns, Citysearch
  • Service was great, owner came out and personally asked how everything was, even had the authentic NY accent. (Felt like I was in a Goodfellas scene minus the coke and Joe Pesci) – lendmeyoureyes, Insider Pages
  • This is a great place to eat even for families! I have 3 children and the lady that waited on us went out of her way to make us comfortable. – AllisonLS, Citysearch

8-Bit Pizza

Pizza is a cultural institution, penetrating every sphere of modern media, including video games. The first pizza-inspired video game, Pizza Problems! was released by Activavision Studios (a former pinball-repair and budget key-copying service) in 1981.

Pizza Problems sold an unprecedented 300 copies in 1981, and was even briefly adapted into a Saturday morning animated series, although fans objected to Pepperoni’s portrayal as a softheaded comic foil. Activavision Studios recently announced plans for a 30th anniversary relaunch of the Pizza Problems franchise, a mature-rated gore fest featuring the sultry voice talents of David Hyde Pierce.
