Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks best briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Put pizza back where it performs best with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Bellacino's Pizza & Grinders in Stow.
Bellacino's menu is full of speedy savories, including oven-baked grinders, delectable pizzas, and crisp salads. Vegetarians can opt for the veggie grinder, a finger-friendly feast with green peppers, onions, mushrooms, cheese blend, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo ($3.99–$9.69), and health-conscious visitors will enjoy the light menu, packed with half grinder options clocking in at 9 grams of fat or less, as well as the ultraviolet-light menu, which is invisible. Satisfy heftier appetites with a large one-topping pizza ($9.99), or try the all-inclusive ravioli meal ($9.49), which gorges pasta pockets with cheese, smothers them in Bellacino's meat sauce, and arrives bearing garlic toast, a side salad, and a 22-oz. drink. Beer and wine, also available at this location, make substantial companions to the quick cuisine.
Social and versatile, pizza and sandwiches tie for most popular in the cafeteria superlatives, each bursting with deliciousness at any temperature or time of day. Thirteen HDTVs, WiFi service and patio seating set the Stow outpost of this national chain apart from others, making it a place to gather with friends or long-lost imaginary friends.
