Pioneering Italians were not only the first to put tomatoes in cuisine, they were also the first people to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Bring their culinary inventiveness to your party with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of catering from Bella Vita. Reservations for catering should be made at least one week in advance.
Bella Vita's passionate culinarians craft a catering menu of classic Italian appetizers, sandwiches, pastas, and pizzas to spice up any event. Each Supreme sampler, which combines fried wisconsin cheese curds, jalapeño poppers, battered mushrooms, seasoned waffle fries, and breaded fresh mozzarella onto one large platter ($14.99), serves four to six eaters in need of premeal satiation. Sandwich box lunches feed midday grazers ($10.99 each), fusing old classics such as italian beef and barbecue pulled pork with more modern creations, such as the california club wrap and the chicken-bacon deluxe wrap.
Alternatively, larger parties commemorating birthdays, championships, or the sunlight bravely rescued during daylight-saving time can dive into one of the many baked-pasta pans ($79.99), such as lasagna, baked ziti, or cannelloni, a noodle-centric amalgamation of ground veal and pork beneath a rich canopy of homemade sauces. Or opt to throw a pizza party ($5.99/person), a package that feeds hoards of hungry guests and ninja amphibians with saucy spheres prepared with homemade dough and an array of edible adornments, such as the mushroom-and-five-cheeses pie or the chicken roma pie.
