A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon: for $17, you get an Italian course selection of one appetizer, one large salad, and two small entrees at Café Rialto in Roslindale (up to a $36.25 value).
Café Rialto’s chefs craft toothsome traditional Italian dishes alongside American favorites to build a deliciously blended menu. Choose an appetizer, large salad, and two small entrees for a healthy sampling of Café Rialto's melodious repertoire. Fried calamari (an $8.75 value) or an antipasto plate (a $9 value) entice diners with visions of an imminently flavorful future. Drown out the screams of boiling pasta by crunching into a balsamic-laced spinach goat-cheese salad (an $8.50 value) or a refreshing tomato and cucumber salad (a $5.75 value). Though not included in today's Groupon, chicken and shrimp can be added to the large salad for an additional $3.
A pair of small pasta-filled entrees ensnares tongues, such as an unblended pesto dish (a $7.75 value) that deconstructs the pungent spread into its component ingredients, or shrimp splashing their tails amidst a spicy white wine and garlic red sauce (a $9.25 value). Each entree selection splays out a choice of ziti, linguini, or gluten-free pasta. Meanwhile, sleek, brushed metal and mahogany chairs cradle diners as they sit at the dark wooden bar, around one of the comfortably spaced tables, or inside a privacy-ensuring pup tent brought from home.
Although not available with this Groupon, customers can create their own pizzas with select toppings (starting at $7.75 for a small/$1 per topping).
