Simple laziness has spurred many culinary inventions, including the sandwich, the blender, and the pizza, which was invented as a way to wheel heavy ingredients from place to place. Transport your palate with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get $36 worth of Italian cuisine at Bella Notte Pizza Pasta & More.
The resident chefs at Bella Notte Pizza Pasta and More hand-toss the pizza dough that lays the foundation for their menu of specialty pies and Italian cuisine. Diners can easily view dough-tossing displays from the dining room, allowing them to take in the scene and maintain the eye contact necessary for telekinetically willing a pizza into being. Nibble on Bella Notte’s distinctive creations, such as the tutti casa (16", $25), which sets anchovies afloat on top of zesty veggies, pepperoni, and sausage. Create-your-own-pizza menus (18", $15) set out a spread of ingredients including fresh tomato, hot peppers, meatballs, roasted red peppers, and pineapple, allowing for a democratized dining experience. Sandwiches, including the Chicago-style roast beef ($7.99) loaded with mushrooms and provolone, satisfy handheld hunger pangs.
