What You'll Get
When Pangaea—the earth's greatest rock supergroup—broke up, many fans blamed it on the high-heeled wiles of Europe's inseparable girlfriend, Italia. Discover a sweeter side to the globe's Yoko with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Birra Poretti's in Arlington.
For several decades, Birra Poretti's has served lunch and dinner from menus chock-full of fine-tuned Italian fare. Commence a feast from the boot-shaped nation with an order of calamari ($7.95) or bruschetta pomodoro ($5.95), or opt for a lighter launch with a fresh mozzarella caprese salad ($7.95, regular). For your main course, customize a hand-tossed, stone-oven pizza ($11.95 for a medium) with your choice of toppings ($1.50 each), or opt for pre-conceived classic pasta dishes such as manicotti ($9.95) and linguini with clams in white wine sauce ($11.95) if your hunger has made you hopelessly indecisive. House specialties also come with a side of your choice of pasta, and feature favorites such as chicken marsala ($12.95), veal piccata ($15.95), and vegetarian-friendly eggplant parmesan ($9.95).
Whether you are looking for a fun meal out with friends or a low-key evening at home with a loved one, Birra Poretti's will help make it happen. Stop by this villa of victuals to dine beneath the stars out on the patio, or grab your gourmet grub to go to nourish the troops as you camp out in your home fort of sheets, dining room chairs, and third cousins. Birra Poretti's also offers Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., featuring the music of the Jaime Reyes Jazz Trio, a pasta station, omelet station, and waffle station. Reservations, like wearing chain mail while wrestling a bear, are highly recommended but not required.

About Birraporetti's Arlington
Chefs toss mounds of dough in the air to form even disks and sprinkle on ingredients such as meatballs and jalapeños before sliding the fledgling pizza into a stone oven. When not building their signature pies, the chefs at Birraporetti's Arlington ladle pesto sauce onto jumbo cheese ravioli and bury grilled jumbo shrimp in tangles of fettuccini noodles. Hearty house specialties include grilled pork chops, served with a pillow of mashed potatoes for a postmeal nap in the dining room or underneath the brick arches on the outdoor patio. As a live jazz musician plays guitar during Sunday brunches, the chefs cover long tables with made-to-order omelets and waffles, breakfast tacos, and pork chops.
