Italians were not only the first people to put tomatoes in cuisine but also the first to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Delight in their inventiveness with today's Groupon: for $35, you get dinner for two at Bocci's Italian Restaurant (up to a $73.50 total value). The dinner includes the following:
- One appetizer (up to an $11.50 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $23 value each)
- Two glasses of house wine or soft drinks (up to an $8 value each)
The chefs at Bocci's Italian Restaurant pair specialty pasta with tender seafood, chicken, and steak after diners summon entrees from a menu brimming with classic Italian cuisine. Twosomes can prep tongues and exercise knuckles with mussels pomadoro, a smattering of brined Prince Edward Island mussels cooked with white wine, roasted garlic, and roma tomatoes. Tuscan herbs swaddle seared duck tuscano, accompanied by parmesan risotto and an orange agrodolce sauce. The ravioli arrabiata gives spinach-and-walnut ravioli the courage to finally talk to italian sausage, and the baked teresina manicotti encloses ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella in a traditional sicilian crêpe. Glasses of house wine or soft drinks wash each bite down in a swift tide of flavor and hydration. Diners entwine forks with spaghetti noodles or the fringes of Burt Reynold's leather jacket while seated at rich wood tables amidst peach-colored walls or stationed atop dark hardwood floors under dangling plants.
