Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Café Lazio, located in the Patton Creek Shopping Center in Hoover.
An outing at Café Lazio dispatches taste buds on a tomato-filled odyssey to the shores of Italy, buoyed by a menu of pizzas, pastas, salads, and more. An order of bruschetta, with roma tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella ($5.95), shakes the cobwebs out of dark, hollow stomachs, and saucy circulars, such as the 14-inch margherita pizza ($12), delight incisors enamored of Euclidean geometry. Those seeking refuge from unrelenting phlebotomists can hunker behind the mushroom mounds and penne peaks of the chicken alfredo ($6.95) or the meaty strata of the beef lasagna ($6.25). Café Lazio also hosts live entertainment on Thursdays starting at 6 p.m., signaling the perfect time to unveil an arsenal of dance moves and complicated handshakes.
