Like marble sculptures, pastas come in countless shapes and sizes and elicit shocked glances when nibbled on at the Louvre. Revere flavorful variety with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Caffe Delle Stelle in Walnut Creek.
Caffe Delle Stelle’s flavor maestros have tossed creamy pasta dishes and grilled entrees in an inviting atmosphere for 17 years. The eatery populates its menu with hefty platefuls of authentic Italian fare, such as creamy fettuccine di verdure ($14.25) or fusilli alla capitana ($19.75), corkscrew pasta synchronously swimming with salmon, sole, and prawns in seasoned extra-virgin olive oil. Savor tender forkfuls of osso bucco, braised veal served with polenta ($19.75), or saltimbocca, sautéed chicken breast stuffed, like an incompetently manufactured teddy bear, with mozzarella cheese and prosciutto ($18.25). Italian pop music wafts through the intimate interior as servers diligently attend to guests amid red-and-white checked tablecloths, which conveniently accommodate impromptu games of salt-and-pepper chess.
