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 $25, you get $50 worth of Italian fare at Café Bionda's State Street location.

Café Bionda's culinary craftspeople populate a mouthwatering menu with authentic Italian favorites from a kitchen helmed by Rosebud Restaurants veteran Joe Farina. Fight off predinner hunger muggings, or huggings, with antipasti such as the fresh East Coast mussels, which come with either spicy tomato or garlic-parsley white-wine sauce ($12), or the eggplant rotolo, which combines ricotta-stuffed eggplant with marinara and mozzarella ($8). Great-grandmothers and mediocre grandmothers alike go gaga for Nanna's gravy, a partnership of pot roast, rigatoni, and tomato sauce ($18, dinner; $14, lunch), and carnivoyeurs might be partial to the meatball, sausage, and veal braciole team represented on the Sunday platter ($21).

A lunch menu is somewhat slimmer than the dinner version on antipasti and entrees but adds a selection of sandwiches, including bread-bound wonders such as a red-pepper, green-pepper, and scrambled-eggs sandwich on french bread ($10) and an italian submarine firing torpedoes of flavor ($10). Wash down the cuisine with a selection from Café Bionda's extensive wine list.
