What You'll Get
Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale Italian dining at Bria Bistro, located along Highway 100.
Bria Bistro's dinner menu provides plenty of points from which culinary Napoleons can invade and conquer. Take the initiative with one of Bria Bistro's primi selections such as PEI mussels sautéed in white wine ($9) or classic antipasto (cremini mushrooms, asiago, cappicola, soppressata, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, whole-grain mustard, pepperoncini, and crostini, $14). House specialties such as the traditional osso bucco (braised veal shank with prosciutto-wrapped thin beans and pancetta smashed potatoes, $21) and picatta (scallopine of chicken or veal with lemon caper sauce, artichokes, and poached cherry tomatoes over linguine $18/$23) dominate the main course. If you fear that ordering salmon over roasted-red-pepper risotto cake ($19) will incite retaliation from the world's fish and restart the cycle of violence, Bria Bistro's hearty vegetarian options include pappardelle with mushrooms, leeks, goat cheese, and white truffle oil ($15), fettuccine alfredo ($13), and more.
To keep your meal from dying alone, match-make it to one of the many imported Italian wines on Bria's wine list, be it a raffishly sexy glass of Umbrian Salviano Orvieto Classico Superiore ($10), the charmingly intelligent Tuscan Toscolo Chianti ($8), or a tall, dark, and mysterious bottle of Ca’ De’ Medici Lambrusco, Emilia-Romagna (sparkling, $26). Bria Bistro's dining atmosphere combines classic elegance with a lively neighborhood vibe, so throw on some luxuriously embroidered pantaloons and your finest doublet and bring along a date, although a wig filled with wood shavings will do in a pinch.

- It's a cozy place, nothing like it in Bellevue. The menu had a great variety…We also had the mussels as an appetizer which were great. – Jack Allen Bukowski, Urbanspoon

About Bria Bistro Italiano
The founder of Bria Bistro Italiano teamed up with an executive chef to create a menu of Italian fare with seasonal ingredients. In the kitchen, chefs bake Italian favorites, such as lasagna stuffed with ricotta cheese, and prepare eggplant parmesan with housemade mozzarella and fire-roasted red peppers. Personal culinary flair is added by providing apricot-chutney accents, drizzles of white-truffle oil, and sides of herbed polenta fries. Servers pour glasses of wine from the extensive wine list to pair with entrees, including everything from bold reds to floral whites as crisp as a freshly dry-cleaned apple.
