What You'll Get
Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn't deliver to their new address. Taste the origins of an empire with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Italian fare at Bella Mama Rose Restaurant in Staten Island.
Within Bella Mama Rose's open kitchen, chefs craft a menu of Sicilian family recipes in individual and family-style portions. Prosciutto and mozzarella build a happy home inside the Bella Mama stuffed chicken like two siblings bonding inside a refrigerator box ($19.95 individual; $38 family style), and pork chops sicilian nestle with hot cherry peppers and tomatoes in warm marsala sauce ($18.95 individual; $38 family style). Meal matchmakers may pair a choice of pastas with a variety of eligible sauces, including carbonara ($13.95 individual; $25 family style) and the signature house-made crab sauce ($23.95 individual; $45 family style). Guests slide into Bella Mama's cozy upholstered booths and café-style tables, warmed by exposed-brick walls and soft lighting that broadcast serenity even while welcoming little ones with a children's menu of chicken fingers and pintsize pastas ($7 each).
