Being wined and dined is often a precursor to big requests, such as Can you finish this jug of wine for me? or Would you sign my petition to install a municipal wine fountain? Compromise just the right amount of judgment with this Groupon.
$32 for an Italian Dinner for Two (Up to $77.85 Total Value)
Dining companions start off with a shared antipasto dish such as octopus carpaccio or stuffed Mediterranean sardines (up to a $13.95 value), before twirling forks around a pasta entree, such as homemade fettuccine in wild-boar sauce or homemade spaghetti with fresh tomatoes and basil, garlic, and almond pesto (up to a $21.95 value each). Each guest also gets a glass of Sicilian wine (up to a $10 value each).
Cacio e Vino
At Cacio e Vino, chefs craft a menu of authentic Sicilian specialties made from fresh, imported regional ingredients such as bronte pistachios and giarratana onions mined from the Iblei Mountains. Small plates such as baked Mediterranean sardines mingle with entrees such as veal stuffed with bread, raisins, and primo sale cheese and a sommelier remains on hand to match meals with delicious inebriants from the wine bar. Cacio e Vino facilitates a festive, familial atmosphere with frequent events such as wine tastings, prix-fixe dinners, and parties for special occasions. Inside this rustic Italian eatery, exposed-brick walls and wine-bottle-lined moldings invoke images of a Sicilian countryside, while candlelit tables offer views of a roaring fire in the open oven.
