Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine at Aziago's Restaurant in Southington. Today's Groupon is good for service in Aziago's main dining room.
Aziago's skilled chefs pair dishes from northern and southern Italy with robust American classics to forge a flavorful menu of pastas, steaks, and fresh seafood. Evade awkward silences after reciting one-sided love sonnets with the crispy crackle of grilled bruschetta ($7.99) or the pan-fried chicken romano's fragrant medley of warm spinach and mushrooms ($17.99). The gorgonzola seafood treats diners to a dip in its signature cream sauce, where forks drift alongside pan-seared sea scallops, jumbo shrimp, and sun-dried tomatoes on rivulets of tender linguine ($18.99). Chefs braise the pork osso bucco’s tender pork shank in tomatoes, peas, and a mushroom-marsala-wine sauce before artfully arranging it atop a bed of rice pilaf ($19.99). Hanging wall sconces spill their radiant glow across a spread of patterned booths and vibrant Italian artwork as guests staunch the flow of a gooey dessert’s oozing insides to impress volcanologist companions.
A neon-lit façade shelters an intimate sidewalk patio where patrons chat on warm summer days over fresh seafood, salads, pastas, and meaty Italian specialties. Diners get their fill of bruschetta and mussels any time of year within Aziago's casual interior, which boasts golden-yellow walls, italian-vintage-style posters, and a hardwood bar overlooking a flat-screen TV. Main dishes, such as veal parmesan and ravioli, float to tables on clouds of house-made marinara, and forks cut effortlessly into juicy steak and pork-chop dishes. The promise of Cheesecake Factory desserts leads young ones to gobble their kiddie-sized pastas, and a quick-serve café brings paninis and wraps to the lunchtime masses. Aziago's also hosts private parties and delivers catered feasts to groups too large to sit at double-decker tables.
