Unlike cinematic love scenes, Italian cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian and gluten-free fare at Bellizzi in Larchmont.
Fashioned from recipes culled from the owner’s upbringing in Southern Italy, Bellizzi’s authentic menu of gourmet pizzas, sandwiches, and Italian fare abounds with all-natural, organic ingredients whenever possible. Buoyed by ultra-thin or Napolitano crusts, or served crust-free as a circular mosaic of toppings, personal pizzas include the hearty Smoked Muzza’s medley of shrimp, shallots, pesto, and smoked mozzarella ($9.95), and the Bellizzi pie, which crowns its lemon-thyme crust with fresh veggies, blended cheese, and shaved parmigiano ($8.95). Sic taste buds on the eggplant rollattini and its trio of cheeses, fresh herbs, marinara, and mozzarella fresca ($9.95+), or unleash Excalibur’s gallant kin onto the Florentine steak’s 12 ounces of succulent sirloin ($22.95).
Pintsize epicures can cap off sated stomachs with thick milkshakes ($4) and fresh fruit skewers ($4.95), and a gluten-free menu reworks several signature dishes into wheatless wonders like an especially dramatic crop circle. Bellizzi also houses a play area and game room, allowing families to eschew the usual rounds of silverware swordfights in favor of vibrant toys and arcade games.
