Italian cuisine is naturally sourced from the fertile wheat fields of Sicily and the thriving meatball mines of Tuscany. Sample Italy's bountiful landscape with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and a garlic knots appetizer (a $5.95 value) at Bario's Restaurant's Nome Avenue location on Staten Island (a $25.95 total value).
The chefs at Bario's Restaurant whip up a menu of both traditional and low-carb Italian fare. Diners prime their bellies with a savory serving of garlic knots before entrees steal the scene, rolling out a palate-pleasing opera starring fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, and the prima-donna fried eggplant who adamantly refuses to sign autographs ($14.95) and a lean steak pizzaiola reciting lines from Hamlet along with peppers and mushrooms ($14.95). Pizzas grace tables in forms such as the lasagna pie, which makes the stratified Italian staple finger friendly by layering a crust in chopped meat, tomato sauce, cheese, and veggies ($7.97–$19.95). Culinary wizards attempt to conjure up slimmer waistlines with health-conscious options such as low-carb pasta topped with grilled chicken, grilled veggies, and zero-calorie rocks ($8.95).
